1. Honoring Women’s History Month With Road Scholar

    During the month of March, we’re celebrating and reflecting on the countless contributions that women have given the world over the course of history. At Road Scholar, we asked ourselves how we could best observe this special month. The answer was simple: by offering several programs exclusively for women seeking to re-energize, rejuvenate and learn with like-minded women from around the country. 


    From nature hikes in Colorado to spa retreats in Washington State, and writing workshops and yoga in Oregon and Arizona, we offers a wide variety of programs in beautiful, serene settings for women who want to treat themselves to a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    Thousands of solo women travelers enroll in Road Scholar programs every year and each woman’s situation is unique. Some leave their husbands at home and enjoy the opportunity of selecting a program that appeals only to them. Others, whether single by choice, widowed or divorced, enroll in programs seeking opportunities to bond with kindred spirits. In each case, these women will always find a warm and welcoming environment. 

    “We’re seeing more and more solo female participants on Road Scholar programs,” said JoAnn Bell, Vice President, Programming. “There are two reasons for this. First, women in their 50s and 60s are quite adventurous and are willing and able to travel solo if they choose. Second, they tend to feel safe in a group, as opposed to traveling alone. Road Scholar offers thousands of programs that appeal to all women, regardless of whether they’re traveling alone, with husbands, with a partner or with a group.”
