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

Active boomer travel

We think experiencing an activity that’s slightly challenging, or one that is new to us, is exhilarating. Our motto: we’ll try anything (within reason) once. If we really love it, we’ll go back and do it again. Why not expand your horizons by trying some of our favorites? And don’t worry, these are doable for most boomers.

Hiking Around the World

Whether we’re in New Zealand, cruising in Alaska or visiting a National Park, a good hike is one of our favorite ways to experience a destination. Read about some of our favorite hikes from around the world by clicking on Hiking Around the World.

Walking Tours

Visiting a destination on foot is the very best way to get the feel of a place. Whether it’s with a professional guide (highly recommended) or a on a self-guided walk around town, getting your feet on the ground is one of the best active travel experiences and great exercise too!
