Road Scholar
Program #14870RJ
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.
Take advantage of what’s going on at Lincoln Center during this celebration of the performing arts. Experience some of the most exciting, entertaining, and stimulating productions drawn from all the venues of New York’s foremost cultural landmark. Attend a variety of performances — opera, music, theater, dance, or other art forms — from the festival schedule.


Highlights

• Meet professionals from each field and engage in critical discussions with experts about the current state of the arts.
• Go behind the scenes at Lincoln Center and attend a performance at the acclaimed Metropolitan Opera House.
• Discuss musical literature with an expert before attending a concert, and examine current trends in dance, theater, or other art forms with performers or key staff.
