Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
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.
The brawny, dynamo of a city described by Carl Sandburg in his famous poem, “Chicago,” has shed its grit but not its frenetic rush. Discover Chicago’s glittering skyscrapers, fine dining, revitalized lakefront, urbane cultural scene, celebrated museums and the tony Magnificent Mile on an exceptional adventure that draws back the curtain on Chicagoans and “their kind of town.”


Highlights

• Examine Chicago’s growth on a professor-led field trip through the city’s diverse neighborhoods.
• Experience the city’s new waterfront parks and visit the renovated Chicago History Museum.
• Enjoy expert-led visits to the Field Museum of Natural History and the renowned Art Institute of Chicago.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile per day.
