Opportunities boundless for tours catering to seniors [Senior Circles]

After seeing a flier on Road Scholar and hearing that a friend had taken a trip with them, I decided to check it out, since I hadn't heard of it before.

Road Scholar, an American organization, provides "educational adventures created by Elderhostel, the not-for-profit world leader in lifelong learning since 1975." I had heard of Elderhostel from my cousins who took trips with Elderhostel in the 1970s.

According to my college friend, Carol O'Shaughnessy, who has taken three trips with Road Scholar, the term "Elderhostel" tends to be too pejorative and Road Scholar is now trying to court "younger adults" of the baby boomer generation.
