Road Scholar
Program #19553RJ
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.
Once a quiet mill town, Pigeon Forge has blossomed into the “entertainment capital” of the Great Smoky Mountains. Learn about the unique culture and history of Appalachia as you delight in mountain music, stories, nearby protected lands, and other signature elements. Trace the origin of the burgeoning theater, music, magic and comedy scenes with a local historian. Visit Oak Ridge to study its role as base for the Manhattan Project and the continuing importance of scientific development in the economy.


Highlights

• Go behind the scenes of Dollywood and learn the history of this unique theme park.
• Learn about the new Lumberjack Feud Dinner Show and other top billings, including the Grand Majestic Theater.
• Visit Oak Ridge, the Secret City, home of the Manhattan Project.
