History by the Sea: Study & Stay on Cumberland & Amelia Islands

https://www.roadscholar.org/find-an-adventure/1379/history-by-the-sea-study-stay-on-cumberland-amelia-islands

Quite possibly CEA's best value Road Scholar program. Program 1379: History by the Sea: Study and Stay on Cumberland and Amelia Islands.

Stay at the unique, one of a kind Greyfield Inn on beautiful Cumberland Island. I can't think of a much better way to get out and enjoy nature and learn history. Three Fall 2021 dates available with the first September date almost sold out.

Experience beautiful Cumberland Island as you enjoy an exclusive two-night stay at the 1890 Carnegie compound and delve into 4000 years of history on sun-dappled Amelia Island.

Today is the first day of the last month in 2020, a year we would all like to erase from memory. Today is also a day when Dr. Fauci actually has very encouraging news! In this article, Fauci states that the general population should have access to the COVID vaccine by April/May 2021. Let the world rejoice and let the decimated but not doomed travel/hospitality industry rejoice! Now is the time to plan and book for the future!

A statement regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the travel industry from Road Scholar President Jim Moses who was recently on the Eye on Travel broadcast

James Moses, President & CEO of Road Scholar, describes the impact of the coronavirus on its non-profit education-based company and the ways that it’s still serving the travel community. Refunds are close to $30 million in the last two months. He says people are still invested in the company and the trips they’ve planned, with over 50% of people opting for Road Scholar to keep their deposits and rebooking for future trips up to a year in advance. Two thousand people have enrolled in programs that are four to five hours from where they live. Although the majority of people are booking trips close to home, they still received over 1,000 bookings for future trips outside of the U.S. So although the numbers are lower, the interest in international travel is still there.
