Amava Take: Grandparents’ Day falls in September. But the joys of being a grandparent can last all year, especially if you have memorable experiences with your grandchildren. Road Scholar has you covered with a wide array of specially designed Grandparent travel experiences. Right now, we’ve got our eyes on some science and nature trips that will be sure to thrill the kids and keep you discovering and adventuring alongside them.

Do you dream of spaceships and surfboards and Cocoa Beach? How cool would it be to share all that with your grandchild? Very! Florida’s lagoons, coast and the new frontier are all part of this expertly planned Road Scholar adventure.

How about science and sun, frisbees and fun? Take advantage of the San Diego beachy, yet science-geeky vibe and learn about biomechanics, robot construction, marine life and much more from Road Scholars’ experts. No wonder kids think their grandparents are rad.

Do you have a reader who loves horses and dolphins? Take that child for an island adventure in the real-life setting of Misty of Chincoteague. Free roaming ponies? Check. Undeveloped shoreline? Check. NASA Visitors’ Center? Check! Grandparent adventure of a lifetime? Check!
