Trip Report Baltimore Briefly

Jump to last reply

With DW spent last week in Baltimore...first time being there. We were at a Road Scholar program at Peabody Institute. Did you hear about the street collapsing? It was just north of Monument Square where we were. It rained for two and a half days but that was OK since we had classes indoors. But not OK for the washed out street area.

Focus of this our 41st program was on the music of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, led by three very competent Peabody music professors. So each day we learned about symphonies and concertos and song cycles of the masters. Then in the evenings we attended recitals by students (piano, violin, voice, organ) for their degree requirements. Also a symphony performance with veteran conductor Leon Fleisher. Meals and rooms in the Peabody Inn.

This was not a sightseeing trip since most of the time we were in classes. But we did have a tour of nearby Walters Art Gallery, very nice collection there. On a free afternoon we strolled the harbor but skipped the aquarium (too pricey). We did enjoy viewing parts of Baltimore riding what is called the Charm City Circulator, a free bus service. Also on the last Saturday was a flower and craft festival at the Monument. Attended nearby Unitarian Church service but not the best time for visiting being pledge Sunday.

As mentioned most meals in Peabody. Several dining places we can recommend: dinner at Sashas on St Paul Street, Mike O'Sheas for lunch and later a glass of Resurrection local beer, and dining at Phillips Harbor Place in the old power station...for Maryland crab cakes of course.

Added note: we took Amtrak from Boston to Baltimore Penn Station, first time traveling via train since college, and we really liked it. About seven hours and on time.

More about Road Scholar in another posting...it's a great learning vacation.
