EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. 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.
Revisit a bygone era of neon cowboys, authentic creamy malts, vintage Cadillacs and colorful local characters along the “Main Street of America,” historic U.S. Route 66.


• In Chicago, visit the Chicago Art Institute and enjoy an architecture walk.
• Visit many Route 66 museums and enjoy excursions to many historic points of interest with local experts.
• Eat at some restaurants that were favorites on Old Route 66 — they haven't changed much! Stop for ice cream cones, sodas and more.

Activity Notes

Climbing a few flights of stairs, stand for up to one hour, walking over paved and unpaved surfaces up to two miles over the course of the day.
