Road Scholar
Program #10856RJ
4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
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.
Plan to achieve a balance of active discovery, quiet relaxation and the proper care and feeding of the body. We will walk in scenic downtown Palm Springs with a local historian, take in the 26-foot “Forever Marilyn” sculpture, work out in a state-of-the-art fitness center and hear lectures on nutrition and heart smart. Our executive chef will share and demonstrate some of his culinary secrets. Water exercise, the therapeutic hot mineral waters and yoga classes help encourage you to abandon stress and to relax in this beautiful environment. You may go home a new person!


Highlights

• Learn about and explore the flora and fauna of the desert as well as history of the desert and the special hot mineral waters.
• Soothe your mind and body with water exercises and chair yoga in the fitness center led by trained wellness experts.
• Sample healthy cuisine, learn about nutrition and get “Heart Smart” through lecture and classroom instruction.
