Whether it's the outdoors in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, a sun-drenched arts training center near the Pacific Ocean or quintessential New England charm, opportunities abound around the U.S. to get away, unpack and learn about the area. Road Scholars embrace the outdoors every year when they set out to paddle waters, bike through rustic and urban paths, or hike storied trails and mountains.  Beyond the great outdoors, they also venture indoors where literary studies, theater, yoga, and musical adventures among others take center stage.

Each Road Scholar retreat features:

"Our selection of Retreats combine learning and immersion in local history with local experts with comfortable accommodations as home base," says JoAnn Bell, senior vice president of programs at Road Scholar. "Retreats provide an ideal setting for relaxing after energizing experiences in the classroom or outdoors and reflecting on a great day with new friends ? all at extraordinary value."

Whether it's hiking the Appalachian Trail, setting out to the nooks of New Hampshire's Monadnock region to dive into the first-in-the-nation primary, or continuing a lifelong passion for music, crafting in West Virginia, kayaking in the Adirondacks, meditating in California ? these learning adventures cover a range of topics with Road Scholar's renowned experts.  Learn more about Road Scholar Retreats around the country here.
