Elderhostel programs take a new name: Road Scholar

For almost three decades, the Peabody Institute has been the site of one of the United States’ largest educational and travel programs for older adults. Elderhostel has brought thousands of senior citizens to Baltimore for weeklong “study vacations” that feature musical classes and daily performances by Peabody students and faculty. The program is held in the Peabody Inn.

Although the learning experiences will be branded as Road Scholar programs, the organization will still carry the Elderhostel name.
