ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy

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.
Celebrate history, traditions and the season’s magic in Richmond’s Capitol District. You’ll delight in holiday splendor at a Gilded Age estate, a fabulous 1895 hotel, St. John’s Church, and Lewis Ginter Botanical GardenFest with a festive dinner and expert-led evening walk through its fantasyland of flowers, trees, lights, conservatory displays and woodland sculptures.
