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.

Rodgers And Hammerstein
“Oklahoma!” ushered in a new era of musical theater, setting the world standard that continued through “The Sound of Music.” Experience American musical treasurers as you once again explore the treasured music of Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Films of Fred Astaire
Out of the Depression emerged a new genre, the film musical. Fred Astaire’s movies of the 1930s and '40s are among the best musicals of this era, ranging from 1936’s “Swingtime” with ginger Rogers to 1942’s wartime musical “The Sky’s the Limit.”

Three Dynamic Decades of Music: 20s, 30s, and 40s
From flappers to bobby soxers, from Valentino to Crosby and then Frank Sinatra, from the roaring 20s through the Depression and World War II. Relive it all through the unique sounds of each era.
