Program #20429RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.
Experience the new vibrancy of Florida’s “sunshine city.” Begin with a motor coach excursion highlighting public art and scenic Tampa Bay. Learn about the city’s growth through interactive exhibits at the Museum of History, examine works of art from antiquity to the present at the Museum of Fine Arts, and explore the magnificent new Salvador Dalí Museum, a beacon of the downtown arts scene. Observe a glass-blowing demonstration and be awed by the new Chihuly Collection of glass art. At Sunken Gardens, encounter a botanical paradise in the midst of a bustling city, and discover the theatrical community’s vitality on a behind-the-scenes experience at a professional theater. Gain a new appreciation for St. Pete’s rich history and culture.


Highlights

• An expert in historic preservation leads a motor coach introduction that tells the city’s unique story.
• At The Dali Museum a docent enlightens you both about the breathtaking building and the largest collection of the surrealist’s work outside Spain.
• Observe a glass-blowing demonstration in the Hot Shop inspired by glass artist, Dale Chihuly, then visit the beautiful Chihuly Collection.
