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

Boomer Adventures in Hawaii

If you’re an active boomer looking for fun, you’ll find plenty of it in Hawaii. While lounging on the beach with a tropical drink in your hand is relaxing, Hawaii offers so much more. In between sun worshiping, plan an adventure from our list of first-hand reports.

Combine adventure with culture on the Big Island

It would take weeks to fully explore the Big Island. Some of our favorites include snorkeling on the Kona Coast, going off-the-beaten-path on a hike to a Green Sand Beach and exploring the remote Waip’io Valley by horseback. But, don’t forget that experiencing Hawaiian culture is an adventure too. Don’t miss a visit to Place of Refuge.

Do it all on the island of Kauai

Tubing through Kauai’s history, experiencing the Na Pali Coast on a catamaran, exploring Waimea Canyon or an all-day paddling, hiking and zipling excursion—you really can do it all in Kauai.

Go off-the-beaten path on Moloka’i

Are you a boomer who prefers an authentic experience without tourist trappings? Moloka’i just might be the island for you. For a beautiful road trip, we recommend the road to the Halawa Valley. And, of course you’ll want to sink your toes into the golden sands of Papohaku Beach

Watch Whales on Maui

Watch humpback whales on a catamaran excursion in Maui, especially if you’re visiting in February during the prime time for observing these amazing creatures. Read more about our experience by clicking on Maui Whale Watching

History is the adventure on Ohau

A visit to the Arizona Memorial is a small but memorable part of the historical experience at Pearl Harbor on Oahu.

Adventures in dining

A loco moco is probably an artery clogging experience but you need to try it, at least once. Hawaii has become a hotbed for locally sourced food. Try our recommendations for slow food dining on the Big Island

Our favorite accommodations

It’s not fancy, but Alan thinks Hilltop Cottage on Moloka’i comes close to his idea of a tropical paradise. Looking for Aloha Spirit on the Big Island? You’ll find it at Waianuhea Bed and Breakfast. And if you’re looking for unassuming luxury at its finest, don’t forget to check out Maui’s incredible Montage Kapalua Bay!
