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.
Enjoy a week at a beautiful bayside retreat and discover a region with a history shaped by Spanish, French, British and Native American people. Examine the various architectural periods and styles that grace historic Mobile and experience the ambience of lovely Fairhope, a haven for artists and writers. Encounter natural wonders, enjoy the sounds of music, savor Southern hospitality and go for an afternoon sail aboard a 72-foot schooner in Mobile Bay.


Highlights

• On an architectural field trip, visit historic homes including the Richards DAR House, famed for its Antebellum “iron lace.”
• Take an expert-led journey aboard an eco-explorer boat into the Mobile Delta, a vital ecosystem with diverse flora and fauna, and look for dolphins and birds during a schooner sail.
• Study the origins of American fiddlin’ as you trace the development of beautiful ethnic and folk music, and hear a private performance by a virtuoso fiddler.
