Road Scholar
Program #21403RJ
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.
Few cities have been at both the forefront of American history and at the pulse of a nation like Richmond, Virginia. Architecture designed by Thomas Jefferson intertwines with modern universities, while landmarks of the Civil War mingle with museums, residential neighborhoods and businesses. Discover Richmond as experts offer their insight into the Revolutionary and Civil War eras, and learn about the thriving Jackson Ward neighborhood during a field trip to the Maggie Walker National Historic Site. Study art and architecture as you explore historical homes, attend a performance at a local theater and much more!


Highlights

• Take a field trip to the State House — designed by Thomas Jefferson — and St. John’s Church where Patrick Henry famously declared, “Give me liberty or give me death!”
• Study Civil War history during a field trip to the Museum of the Confederacy and its restored Confederate White House.
• View the statues along Monument Avenue and stop to take in the impressive collection of American art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile; standing during museum explorations.

Coordinated by Virginia Commonwealth University.
