Road Scholar
Program #12332RJ
5 Days | 4 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.
Before the hectic holiday season begins, take some time to learn more about the myriad traditions, beautiful music and treasured plays and films Christmas has inspired. Historical interpreters like Lady Bacon (lady in waiting to Queen Elizabeth and mother of Sir Francis Bacon) and Mrs. Wakefield from the Wellington Academy in Victorian England share tales of Christmas in their times. Learn how scholars have used a fresco from The Vatican, Chinese astronomy and The Bible to search for the Star of Bethlehem.


Highlights

• Delve into beloved holiday music by composers from Handel to Berlin.
• Enjoy a boisterous, Broadway-style production of “Scrooge the Musical” at the renowned Fireside Theatre.
• Learn about historic Christmas traditions, from the Yule Goat of Scandinavia to how the holiday was celebrated during the Renaissance and Victorian times.

Activity Notes

Minimal walking and standing on this program.
