6 Days | 5 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.
Experience the best that the “City of Palms” has to offer as you immerse yourself in its historic sites and natural vistas. Go behind the scenes at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates and enjoy an exclusive exploration of the Edison Botanic Research Laboratory. Delve into the archaeology of Pine Island during a visit to the Randell Research Center, and hear about the Calusa people who once inhabited the region. Learn about Florida’s fascinating past at the Southwest Florida Museum of History, from Seminole culture to the influence of “cracker” pioneers.
