While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.

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.

I recommend this program to all who wish to experience the prairie and history of this area of southwest Minnesota. Each instructor is tops, field trips informative and varied, and the community that develops between participants due to the convenience of Conference Center lodging, classroom location to sleeping rooms, informal gathering spaces, tasty meals and beautiful lakeside views under towering old oak trees makes this program among the best offered by Road Scholar.

I have attended five Road Scholar programs and all have been outstanding. This program incorporates a wide variety of subjects, the primary ones being the comparison of the major world religions. Also, this area of Minnesota has a very interesting history pertaining to the Indian attack on the white settlers in 1862. The participants came from a wide background and were able to relate these separate topics because the presenters usually made an attempt to tie them together.
