EDUCATIONAL TRAVEL

This is a huge category, and let's face it—any trip can be educational.

However, one program for older travelers deserves special mention:

Elderhostel

This not-for-profit organization sponsors archaeology trips to

Greece, study cruises in Portugal, dulcimer making in the

Appalachians, and other programs in more than 70 countries for

travelers from ages 55 and up.
