An Exclusive Learning Adventure for LIFE Members
May 28 – June 04, 2015

Come and join your fellow LIFE members on this exclusive trip organised by LIFE Travels in conjunction with Road Scholar (formerly known as Elderhostel).

On this 8-day trip we’re going to get to know as much as possible about the artistic and cultural sides of two great US cities – Philadelphia and New York City. NYC probably needs no introduction.
Suffice it to say that we will include the Metropolitan Museum, the Lincoln Center, the New York City Ballet, the 42nd Street theater district and Broadway itself.

And Philadelphia? What does it have to offer?  Well, there are the 3,600 murals of the Mural Arts Project, the Barnes Collection with all of its French Impressionist works, the Rodin Museum (possibly the best collection outside Paris), not to mention Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
In addition, we include 3 major shows, Stephen Sondheim in Philly, and the ballet and a new Broadway musical in NYC. Also the expert lectures for which Road Scholar is famous – to help us appreciate even more what we are seeing.

So, grasp this opportunity to immerse yourself in art and culture, to experience two great cities, to eat great food, and to share all this with fellow LIFE members, both those you already know and those who are potential friends in the future.

The cost is $2,095 (US). This includes 7 nights’ accommodation, 17 meals, 5 expert lectures, 9 field trips, etc. What more could you ask?

A hint about travel:
You will note that the published price does not include transportation from and to Toronto. That’s because we wanted to give you as many options as possible. One hint, though. If you fly to and from Newark (EWR), you can take the train between Newark and Philadelphia (63 minutes) and between NYC and Newark (28 minutes). This is not an ad for Porter, but they do fly to EWR out of Billy Bishop, and they do have lots of sales.
