Road Scholar
Program #14582RJ
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 and explore America’s pastime and the rich legacy of the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins in sunny Fort Myers, Florida. These perennial American League powers have totaled four World Series championships in the last 24 years. Explore Red Sox history — Ted Williams, Carlton Fisk’s 1975 home run and the 2004 miracle title that ended the 86-year Curse of the Bambino. Revisit the Twin’s 1960 move to the Twin Cities, Kent Hrbek’s 1987 World Series grand slam and the arrival of $25 million man Joe Mauer. Don’t forget your mitt and autograph book!


Highlights

• Attend up to four practice games with a chance to see your favorite Red Sox or Twins players.
• Meet with baseball experts, retired players and umpires as you discuss the rules, regulations, heroes and legends.
• Explore baseball’s diverse history as you learn about the former Negro League.
