Program #20373RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
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.
Come on along and listen to the lullaby of Broadway! Musical theater is one of the rousing courses you will enjoy in our all-music program. We will also delve into classical music that stirs our souls, music in the movies that makes our hearts soar and big band/swing that has us ready to jump to the jive! Be immersed in a potpourri of composers, entertainers, musicians and performances for a delightful musical adventure.


• Join acclaimed Road Scholar instructors for five days of captivating lectures and presentations.
• Enjoy a field trip to San Francisco for a backstage docent-led visit to Davies Symphony Hall and the War Memorial Opera House.
• Enjoy live musical entertainment on the closing night.
