PROGRAM REGISTRATION: After you have your room assignment, come over to the Road Scholar desk to register with the program staff. You will receive your arrival packet containing the up-to-date schedule and program information that we’ll review during our orientation session. Please be aware that program activities and scheduled times could change due to local circumstances. In the event of changes, we will alert you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
ORIENTATION: After introductions of participants and staff, we will have an orientation session to review the up-to-date schedule and any changes, cover responsibilities, safety guidelines, emergency procedures, and answer any questions you may have.
Road Scholar's FLEX programs are designed for independent-minded participants who want high quality educational content in a structured framework with more free time than our traditional all-inclusive programs. In this City Highlights Program, you will have expert-led presentations and field trips that showcase some of Portland's most notable features.
The program provides two meals per day on average, thus allowing you the opportunity to explore local cuisine according to your tastes. You will also have a significant amount of free time for personal independent exploration. Your welcome packet has suggestions for free time activities and dining options, and the Group Leader will be happy to offer recommendations.
During free time, the Group Leader will be available to lead optional informal activities and dining out that you are welcome to join at your own cost if you like. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Your program price also includes a 2-day unlimited ride pass for the Portland Public Transportation that will allow you to travel on MAX, buses, and street car trolleys throughout your stay.
