What's your favorite Road Scholar grandparent adventure? Why?

Parents
  • I have completed two Road Scholar trips with my granddaughter. When she was nine, we did Mountains, Music & Magic in the Great Smokey Mountains, TN. Lots of entertainment and go-behind-the-scene adventures.

    This year, she is now 10, we attended the three island adventure in St. Simons, Jekyll & Sapalo Islands, GA. More educational in nature (vs. entertainment), but she had a great time learning about sea life, reptiles & ghosts! This program has several opportunities for adults and kids to split up (typically adults for historical tours, kids for educational fun) and then join back as a whole 1-2 hours later. Kids are well supervised.

    From first hand knowledge, I can definitely recommend either of these programs.
  • I have done Paris and an African trip with two of my grandchildren. They were both amazing. I really like that the grandchildren had other children to interact with while we also got to know each other much much better. It is a totally different than a visit with the parents around! I agree, let the kids interact with the others as much as they like, you will still have plenty of interaction with them. Another amazing benefit is that on both trips we had guides that were wonderful with the grandkids. I highly recommend going on these trips.
