Road Scholar
Program #2074RJ
5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
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.
Founded in 1873, the Kohler Company has grown from making farm implements and bathtubs to a world-renowned example of American product design and innovation. In 1912, the company moved its headquarters out of Sheboygan to the rural land to the west and founded the Village of Kohler. The first planned community in the Midwest, Kohler has been a smashing success — a thriving community, a masterpiece of landscape architecture and a grand golf and spa destination. Take field trips to the Kohler Factory, the Waelderhaus Museum and the John Michael Kohler Art Center, hear from an artist-in-residence and experience Kohler through the eyes of locals.


Highlights

• Experience old-world hospitality at the five-star American Club Resort and delve into the history of the Village of Kohler and its 50-year master plan.
• Learn more about the lives of the early immigrant craftsmen and their desire to become American citizens.
• Go behind the scenes of the Kohler Factory and Design Center to see how plumbing fixtures are made.

Activity Notes

Walking and standing for up to two hours at a time; some uneven terrain and stairs.
