Road Scholar
Program #15646ENZ
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.
Discover California’s central coast in a sequel to the popular “The Best of Monterey: From Big Sur to Cannery Row” program. Put aside the tourist’s guide and allow naturalists, artists and teachers to illuminate a variety of topics in this world-renowned destination. Discover local treasures, explore Point Lobos, and enjoy evenings filled with a variety of programs including live music.

• Enjoy a naturalist guided walk along the breathtaking coastline of Point Lobos with a chance to spot sea otters or even a whale off-shore.
