Road Scholar
Program #20520RJ
4 Days | 3 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.
If you’re looking for a more flexible schedule with ample independent time and several meals on your own, then our FLEX learning adventures are made for you.
Philadelphia is not only one of the most historic cities in America, it’s also one of the most “happening” with fascinating things to see and do around every corner. In addition to what’s going on during your weekend program — when you’ll have a block of free time to explore on your own — each program will include the following highlights plus a special entertainment event from current offerings.


Highlights

• Experience the city's mystique through its amazing murals, a visit to the “Littlest Street” and First Friday when eclectic art galleries in Old City welcome one and all.
• Visit the “Magic Gardens” that preserve Isaiah Zagar's unique mosaic art in a fully tiled indoor space and massive outdoor mosaic sculpture garden with folk art statues, bicycle wheels, colorful glass bottles, hand-made tiles, and thousands of glittering mirrors.
• Stroll along the banks of the Schuylkill River to see and learn about the world famous Fairmount Water Works that looks like Greek temples.

Program Notes

This learning adventure is one of our FLEX programs. It offers a more flexible schedule than our traditional programs and includes ample independent time and several meals on your own.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles on uneven terrain; climbing a few flights of stairs.

Coordinated by The Philadelphia Society For The Preservation Of Landmarks.
