Lifelong Learning

Road Scholar helps Americans travel and learn at the same time

These days, lifelong learning is coming to be known as a standard hobby for many baby boomers. Whether they're going back to the classroom to learn a new subject or looking to brush up on a new field for work, it's obvious that hitting the books has become a priority for prospective retirees across the country. 

One organization offers learning with a twist, according to The Coloradoan. Road Scholar makes nearly 8,000 educational trips available to mature travelers. These special educational tours are available far and wide, in any of the 50 states to more than 90 countries abroad.

During their journey, participants in the program are given the chance to learn from experts about the local community or culture at large. The setting is always fresh and exciting, be it a cruise, hike or bike trip.

Retirees who enjoy the thrill of learning may want to look into Del Webb retirement communities as well, which offer unparalleled access to Osher Lifelong Universities (OLLI) and other academic institutes. For example, at Sun City Mesquite, homeowners can go to classes at the OLLI at the University of Las Vegas, where they can choose to learn a new language, brush up on their financial knowledge or volunteer through OLLI programs.
