Road Scholar
Program #10902ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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.
Come down the bayoux to Lafayette and let our experts lead you on a fête of musical genres from around the world. More than 50 artists on six music stages converge on the largest francophone festival in the United States. Sample savory delicacies like étouffée and gumbo, dance to the tunes of zydeco and explore the world with your ears en français as well as other languages. Learn the meanings of Creole and Cajun, and meet local artisans, musicians and historians who will lead you on an exploration of Cajun culture and its links with the Francophone world.


Highlights

• Experience musicians from 15 French-speaking countries and sample some of the best local cuisine.
• Discover Louisiana’s French-language connections and its unique musical heritage.
• Relive Longfellow’s “Evangéline” as you discuss the turbulent history, traditional livelihoods and proud identity of the Cajun community.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile a day.

Coordinated by University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
