Travel Planners for Boomers

Planning a trip is almost as fun as taking it. Our travel planners for boomers provide the information and tips you need to make the most of your trip.

Although some adventurous souls may hit the open road with little more than a toothbrush and a dream, we prefer a more structured approach. To plan your next trip, take a look at our travel planners, both location-specific and by topic. They include online sites, books, guides and gear that we use in our own boomer travels, plus links to all of the articles we’ve published on the topic.

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!
