Road Scholar
Program #20694RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.
Since it was settled in 1847, Salt Lake City has been known as the “Crossroads of the West.” On this unique urban adventure, trace the transition of a dry hot valley floor filled with sagebrush into one of the most fascinating large cities in the country. Explore top-rated museums of natural history and culture and stand both in Temple Square and upon the spot where in 1847 Brigham Young declared, “This is the place.” Go inside the Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Center to see how volunteers help prepare and ship tons of relief items around the world in times of natural disaster and discover the Great Salt Lake from Antelope Island, home to fascinating plants and wildlife, including wild bison.
