Program #16900RJ
4 Days | 3 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.
From “The Shadow Knows” to “Sam Spade” to great news events, relive a time when entertainment and history unfolded with radio as the trusted and welcomed messenger! Vintage excerpts and commentary make this an unforgettable adventure into the best of the best! Then, Broadway rings in with comedy, drama and musicals! Explore some of Broadway’s greatest hits - “Showboat,” “Porgy and Bess,” “Girl Crazy,” “Oklahoma!” “Kiss Me Kate,” “My Fair Lady” and “West Side Story.”


Highlights
