Road Scholar Retreats

Are there special places in America where you can get away from it all and connect with nature and yourself? Places where instead of hustle and bustle, you’ll find good friends and enriching experiences, all in a serene setting? The answer is “Yes.” We have hand-picked more than 40 idyllic locations across the country where Road Scholars have thrived for years and created a series of learning adventures called Road Scholar Retreats. We have selected each Road Scholar Retreat for its natural beauty, storied history, warmhearted staff and, as always, its treasure trove of educational discovery.

Always far from a cookie cutter chain hotel, lodgings run the gamut from charming cottages to historic conference centers and educational field station. Amenity levels vary but all guarantee a welcoming, no-frills atmosphere—the ideal setting for relaxing after energizing experiences in the classroom or outdoors and reflecting on a great day with new friends and, perhaps, your new self.

Welcome to Road Scholar Retreats.
