Boomer Travel Tips

This article may contain referral links. Read our DISCLOSURE

Since 2008, Alan and I have been sharing our best baby boomer travel tips with you. For us, researching and planning for a trip is almost as much fun as taking it, especially if you know the right resources to consult. We’re both planners and it’s not unusual for us to be working on a trip months—sometimes even a year or two—in advance.

Most of our journeys are personal trips that require lots of planning on our part. As you can imagine, we’ve collected plenty of valuable boomer travel resources for planning trips. And you’ll find links to them on this page.

How are boomer travel tips different from general trip advice? The information is geared to travelers born between 1946 and 1964. Alan and I are boomer travelers—some might even call us senior travelers. We KNOW how you like to travel—inquisitively, enjoying active travel experiences, taking it slowly rather than rushing from place to place.

Your travel budget is larger now that you have an empty nest. That means there’s more money to splurge on luxury travel. And you have more time, which means considering that long cruise is now an option.

Be sure to come back often as we continue to update and verify recommended travel resources and gear for you. Or subscribe to the My Itchy Travel Feet Weekly Broadcast to be the first to know!
