Road Scholar
Program #2856RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.
Dubbed affectionately by some as the northernmost Caribbean city, New Orleans revels in its giddy blend of European refinement and carefree effervescence, a place where virtue and vice are celebrated in equal measure. Surrender to the intoxicating charms of “the Crescent City” that have long fascinated artists, writers, musicians and scholars. Experience live New Orleans jazz, take field trips inside and outside the French Quarter and Garden District, get perspectives on architectural and literary landmarks and enjoy unique culinary adventures.


Highlights

• On a bus excursion, see Lake Pontchartrain, Bayou St. John, the city’s famed above-ground cemeteries and St. Charles Avenue, including a walk in the Garden District to take in its historic architecture.
• Hear live jazz performances at Fritzel’s and Irvin Mayfield’s jazz clubs.
• Enjoy a cooking demonstration as you dine at the New Orleans School of Cooking.

Program Notes

You may enjoy a comparable educational program at a lower price six blocks from the French Quarter, "Signature City New Orleans: America's City of History, Culture and Celebration" (#1475) or a more active, small group program, “Out and About in New Orleans: Jazz, Jambalaya and Joie de Vivre” (#21665).

Activity Notes

Moderate walking and standing.
