Key West at its best! A very interesting program including President Truman, Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams. Great food and accommodations.

This program was so interesting and educational. John was a fantastic leader. If I had gone to Key West on my own, I am sure I would have missed out on many of the things we saw and learned! A great way to see Key West!

This was our first Road Scholar program. We are very happy and are glad that we have already signed up for another one.

I enjoyed the unique lectures and docent tours: we learned about Harry Truman in a stimulating docent lecture reserved for our group and toured his "Little White House". Hemingway and Audubon came alive in the same ways. I had some "tough" questions for them, but the speakers seemed to enjoy those. Ocean Alex gave us a command performance, and we enjoyed exclusive trolley and walking tours of the area. The food was abundant and tasty. We liked our Cuban Restaurant next to the Waterfront Theater more than First Flight. When First Flight can cram 16 of us into one table, charge $29.58 for two glasses of wine, and cut the key lime pie so thin, you'd swear all 16 pieces came out of one pie, it's time to find a substitute. We had two huge platters of food, a half-carafe of Sangria, a fancy coffee and a dessert big enough for two for $55.00 at the Cuban restaurant. Our guide, Craig, was excellent - tactful but also teasing. His wealth of information and love of Key West made the trip a pleasure. I do wish we had explored the Discovery Center where he volunteers. It sounded like a fine addition to the schedule. I can hardly wait for our next Road Scholar trip!

This was a delightful trip. Nice accommodations, good food, and an excellent education of the history of Key West. I was afraid this program would be too "inactive" for me but found it an enjoyable walking tour. I think the name "Key West at your Pace" is a misnomer as for me it implies a sedentary tour when the reality it was pleasant walks and trolley rides. I didn't feel inactive at all and those that had mobility issues other arrangements were made to include them. I loved this trip.

This was a great overview of beautiful,historic old Key West. If you have never been here before you got a taste [literally too] of everything. And if you have been here, you had lots of behind the scenes activities.

What a wonderful experience, so very glad I got to see Hemingway's home, Truman's little White House and enjoy the tropical climate. Too bad I had to return to a blizzard at home!
