Tropical regions are wonderful to visit during the busy summer and fall seasons, but heading to these destinations when the throes of tourists have gone home is a unique experience in itself. Baby boomers who love exotic places and are looking to explore a new location this winter should consider St. Tropez off the coast of France for a truly thrilling getaway.
Those who wish to enjoy the natural wonders of St. Tropez can take a coastal tour along many of the stunning shorelines, reports Lonely Planet. Several travel organizations tap professional naturalists to take guests along these routes, pointing out the gorgeous flora and fauna of the area along the way.
For some local history, guests can make plans for La Maison des Papillons. This facility was occupied by the Lartigue family in the 1800s and now houses more than 4,500 butterfly exhibits along the walls.
The culinary selections in St. Tropez are some of the best around, so travelers may want to splurge a little when it comes to their elegant dining experience. According to Frommer’s, the Lei Mouscardins restaurant boasts incredible harbor views and delicious cuisine, including a dish with crayfish, truffles and crushed chestnuts.
