Program #21499RJ
8 Days | 7 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
We’re always developing educational adventures that open windows to new places and probe fascinating topics. Check out our latest creations.
See all of our New 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.
A world-class museum, American humorist Garrison Keillor's bookstore, an innovative theater company, even the Mighty Mississippi itself — experience it all on our Great American Get-Together in Minneapolis! In this latest stop on our series, Minneapolis and St. Paul host a lively collection of speakers and activities. See five miles of the nation’s most impressive collection of Victorian mansions, once home to the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Discover the iconic "Spoonbridge and Cherry" sculpture and the renowned Minnesota State Capitol. Hear about the history of the Twin Cities, from its Swedish community to the scandals of gangsters John Dillinger and Ma Barker in the 1930s. And learn about "Minnesota nice." When an affable local asks, "How are you doing?" they really want to know.


Highlights

• Go backstage at the architectural prize-winning Guthrie Theater and attend a performance.
• Explore masterpieces of world art at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Weisman Museum, and visit the American Swedish Institute.
• On an authentic paddle-wheeler, experience the history of beautiful downtown Minneapolis as you voyage on the Mississippi River.

Program Notes
