My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

Playing tennis or golfing on your next boomer trip? Don’t forget the ThermaCare HeatWraps.

2012/10/10by Donna Hull

Tennis is one of my favorite sports. Playing a set or two of tennis with Alan is always a fun addition to our boomer travels. And, although I’m not a golfer, I understand the lure of chasing that little white ball around a famous golf course at an international destination. Unfortunately for boomer travelers, there’s always the chance that running down a hard-driving tennis return or taking an extra big swing to drive the ball close to the green will result in back pain the next morning. Tucking a box of ThermaCare HeatWraps for Lower Back & Hip into your carry-on is a smart move. Since ThermaCare HeatWraps provide up to 16 hours of pain relief, you won’t regret the back-pain inducing effort to win the match. Alan and I will be bringing them along on our next tennis vacation.

Tennis fans are going to love this trip for two to Phoenix, Arizona. The prize includes airfare, four-night stay, two 2-hour private lessons, car rental and $500 spending money. Or, perhaps you’re a golfer. In that case, you might like to win a trip for two to Palm Beach, Florida.

I would certainly rather go to Palm Beach than Phoenix (familiarity breeds contempt). But I’d need the ThermaCare HeatWraps to ease my aching back and hips after too much shopping rather than too much golf.
