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.
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.

Marvelous Marvin Hamlisch
Marvin Hamlisch was a man with ideas at his fingertips. A composer for both stage and film, as well as conductor of symphony orchestras across the country, he won virtually every award that exists (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony, Pulitzer, Golden Globe) and left a legacy that has shaped and transformed the American musical landscape. There are just too many works to name but not too many to appreciate, so join us as we reconstruct his life, his times and his music. Enjoy live and recorded music, film biography and lively lectures.

Bond, James Bond
For over 50 years, the fictional British Secret Service agent of MI6, James Bond, has intrigued and thrilled us as he has faced and conquered the villains of Britain and the West. This longest continually running film series has given us music to remember, cars to long for and gadgets to dream about. Learn about Bond’s creator, his origins and the change in character as he moved from Cold War fears to modern-day global intrigue. Film clips, discussion and lectures will round out your experience.

Bob Fosse, Master Choreographer
Bob Fosse — director, choreographer, actor, screenwriter — was an intense and driven visionary. His creations are provocative, entertaining and unlike anything that came before. From his early works (“Pajama Game” and “Damn Yankees”) to later productions (“Cabaret” and “All That Jazz”), appreciate the dynamic changes. Explore his works and life through film clips, discussion, lectures and live music.
