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.

The Dark Side of the Screen: Film Noir
Noir style was a vehicle for filmmakers who attempted to convey the darkness in the heart of American Post-WWII society as it faced many unknowns, gangsters, hoodlums, prostitutes and killers. View three films for a deeper understanding.

Swing Those Tunes
From the mid-thirties to the end of World War II the Swing Era dominated America’s popular music. Travel back to the era of those Big Bands and their vocalist, small instrumental and singing groups while enjoying songs of this unique period.

Florida: From its Citrus to Railroads
