EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

This road scholar experience was really great for people who enjoy music. Everyone in our class was old enough to know who Count Bassie and Duke Ellington was, so I would recommend you know your subject matter before you attend.

Icons of American Music was an absolutely first-rate experience. The instructors knew their stuff inside and out, and were very talented musically. They interacted well with the class, and demonstrated many concepts with audio and visual recordings, as well as brief personal performances. Every person in the room was engaged - you should be very satisfied with this program.

Everything about this program was terrific, the lecturers, the concerts, the personnel at the Inn, even the food. Although it rained each day we were there, it didn't dampen our spirits as everything was easily accessible. We'll be back

Fabulous program, great setting, easy to maneuver. We would certainly return to Peabody Institute.
