Program 1381

This spring we will feature a few of our upcoming Road Scholar programs that we believe are excellent  not only in value but also in learning experience and fun.  The first program that we would like to highlight is Program # 1381: The Great Smoky Mountain Railway: An Appalachian Adventure

 

Experience mountain views and capture mountain breezes aboard a train in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. Depart the historic town of Bryson City and travel along the Nantahala River Gorge as you ride the rails. Explore renowned John Campbell Folk School to learn about classes in craft, art, music, and dance, and hear a talented musician perform tunes of Southern Appalacia for a delightful encounter with Great Smoky heritage.
