This gently-paced voyage blends enriching educational discoveries with unparalleled natural scenery. On a small ship chartered exclusively by Road Scholar, experience the pristine beauty that receding glaciers left in their wake — Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario. Designed especially for participants who prefer less walking, this program uses coaches to travel to daily destinations, introducing you to both scenic splendor and to the stories of those who have worked these extraordinary waterways.
