Road Scholar
Program #20259ENZ
5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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.
Take a ride through American history and explore deep inside amazing private collections and stunning museums dedicated to American innovation. Experts tell stories and reveal details of the Harold LeMay Auto collection, the world’s most complete anthology of the American automobile. Survey a century of flight at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, visit the Boeing aircraft factory, talk one-on-one with restoration experts as they restore vintage aircraft with passionate dedication, and discuss the impacts of transportation innovation on American travel and culture.


Highlights

• Explore Paul Allen’s Flight Heritage Center, exhibiting incredibly rare vintage aircraft restored to authentic flying condition.
• Learn the story of collector Harold LeMay, a local refuse businessman who took an automobile-hobbyist mentality beyond imagination.
• Marvel at the massive scale of Boeing Dreamliner 787s rolling through production in the world’s largest building.

Activity Notes

Frequent on and off motorcoach without lifts. Walking up to 10 blocks at museums and a Boeing assembly plant over the course of a day. Program includes exploring museums, standing on your feet for extended portions of the day and a fair amount of walking.

Coordinated by Skagit Valley College.
