Boomer Road Trips

Let’s Take a Boomer Road Trip

Are you a traveler who is lured by the call of the road? Alan and I are big fans of boomer road trips. It’s the kind of travel that allows freedom and flexibility.

Some of the links on this page are referral links. Read our Disclosure.

Our boomer road trip philosophy is to travel slowly. If a roadside attraction looks interesting, we stop and explore. Our itineraries include time for those surprises that we didn’t expect.

When possible, we plan two-night stays rather than experiencing a new destination every night. Yes, we’re serious about taking it slow. Check out some of our favorite domestic and international road trips and scenic drives.

We’ll be adding more great road trip ideas and itineraries so be sure to bookmark this page. Or subscribe to our weekly broadcast so you’ll be the first to know!
