Road Scholar
Program #6727ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
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.
Against the beautiful backdrop of autumn colors and scenic Lake Cumberland, join experts at the University of Kentucky Leadership Center for a foray into the rich cultural heritage of the "Bluegrass State.” Explore the music and dance of Kentucky’s people with songs of yesterday played on guitar, banjo, dulcimer, fiddle and harmonica. Meet a park naturalist who introduces you to the world of color that peaks in Kentucky this time of year and gain an understanding of Kentucky yesterday and today through morning walks and discussions about her people.


Highlights

• Classes with musicians and Kentucky music experts bring to life the musical history of the Bluegrass State, from Bill Monroe to Merle Travis.
• Take part in Western squares, big-circle mountain dancing, line dancing and other traditional dances.
• Each evening, delight in performances by a variety of local Kentucky artists.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
