Some recent travel trends are showing that the baby boomer generation is getting more adventurous in their vacation selections. In a recent survey conducted by the Peregrine Reserve, spontaneity has taken over travel among this demographic, as more people in this age group have disposable income to spend on unique and thrilling excursions.
Of the individuals surveyed, more than two-thirds are spending double on their vacation than those taking trips a decade ago. Certain destinations worldwide are making headlines this year among baby boomers as the new hotspots for travel, including the major cities in countries throughout Latin America and along Turkey's Mediterranean coast.
In North America, there are several themes and destinations that baby boomers are leaning toward when choosing the ultimate getaway experience. According to The Huffington Post, many are enjoying the desert landscapes surrounding Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the luxurious spas located inside the city. Others indulge their thrill-seeking side by taking trips to the Canadian Rockies, navigating their rental cars along roads lined with glaciers and impressive peaks.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to exploring new locales on an adventure travel trip, especially when baby boomers have the time and funds to do so.
