Program #21025RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
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.
A resident of Walpole, N.H., Ken Burns has directed and produced films that capture the American experience — and is widely regarded as one of the best documentary filmmakers of our time. Gain a new perspective on the life and works of this extraordinary storyteller as you screen several of his films, and take a field trip to Walpole where his company, Florentine Films, is located. Enjoy an opportunity to explore the quaint, surrounding New Hampshire towns known for their covered bridges, folk music and historic landmarks.


Highlights

• View clips from the new Ken Burns documentary film, "The Roosevelt's, An Intimate History" and enjoy daily lectures by an outstanding historian.
• Trace the history of Florentine Films, founded by Ken Burns, and spend an afternoon in Walpole, N.H., home of the film company’s headquarters.
• Screen When Lincoln Paid, a 100-year old film directed by Francis Ford that was rediscovered in a local barn.
