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.

Scores of well-known conductors, musicians, singers, teachers and other music professionals have trained at this world-renowned cultural institution. Learn from the Peabody Institute’s music faculty, versed in a vast array of musical topics, and observe the rigors of honing passion into art as students present their work.

• Enjoy a private, expert-led exploration of the George Peabody Rare Book Library, located on the Peabody Institute Campus.
• Take in the surrounding Mount Vernon neighborhood through field trips to the Maryland Historical Society and world-class Walters Art Museum.
