8 Days | 7 Nights
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

This trip exposes you to new sensations thru architecture,beautiful landscapes, historical venues and the beauty of this area which you would expect to see. The days are very full with activities. We went to several venues each day and welcomed our return to the hotel in the late afternoons to rest and relax.

The tours throughout the Hudson River Valley were very interesting, particularly the FDR Museum & their homes. Also Boscobel and Olana, the home of Frederic Church offered breath-taking views of the Hudson River. The stay at Red Lion Inn was absolute perfection and the tour of the "Mount", the home of Edith Wharton, was fabulous. The home AND the gardens are unbelievable. The tour began Sept. 21 and therefore it was about 2-3 weeks prior to peak Fall colors, but we did have "some" beautiful color in Massachusetts. The landscape was still very beautiful though throughout the Hudson river valley. I learned a lot about an area of New York I had never visited before.

This program visits a variety of interesting places from the Rockwell Art Museum to Historic Houses. Spend a day with the Shakers and see the homes of the Roosevelts, Edith Wharton and Governor Rockefeller,

This is a great program. For History buffs, it is very informative. Enjoyed visiting the homes of FDR and learned a lot about Shakers and Norman Rockwell.
