“As a first-time solo traveler with Road Scholar, this women’s-only trip exceeded my expectations. Our Group Leader was friendly, knowledgeable and organized, and immediately put me at ease. The accommodations, food, activities and presenters were all first rate. And the women in my travel group were fascinating and welcoming. I loved every second of it.”

-Jane from Covington, Wash. | Road Scholar Class of ‘15

  1. To try something new.

Whether you’re studying the art and architecture of a city, hiking through a national park or learning how to practice yoga, you’ll expand your horizons with other senior women, in travel groups designed to make it easy to try something new.

“I just returned from ‘Women at the Fire: An Art Introduction to Glass, Clay and Steel.’ Many of the women in my travel group had never worked with clay, glass or steel before. We received solid instruction in both form and technique, with hands-on guidance by very patient instructors who adore their craft. I am a teacher, and can vouch that this was some of the best teaching I have seen. I am so glad I decided to join this women’s-only travel group with Road Scholar!”

-Sally from Olive Branch, Miss. | Road Scholar Class of ‘18
