Remember the song, “Leaving on a Jet Plane”? It was a hit for Peter, Paul and Mary when it was released in 1969, and it’s a perfect anthem for the so-called Baby Boomers.
Why? Because boomers love to travel.
And that’s one of the few characteristics you can ascribe to this group of unique and adventuresome individuals (a group that includes Brad Pitt, Jimmy Buffett, Courteney Cox and Madonna).
If you’re a boomer (born 1946 through 1964), I need your help: tell me where you love to travel to (and please keep reading for details).
There are about 78-million people who could be classified as “Baby Boomers” (though I like the term, the “biggest generation” because it’s such a huge group); but analysts say, they defy classification.
Here’s some interesting nuggets I picked up from a travel marketing website:
- Boomers see travel as a necessity
- They like adventure
- They like their independence (no stifling tours for them)
- They like cheap airfare sales (that’s from my own experience)
Boomers are youthful, fit, and as I said, have a taste for adventure, but they also like their luxuries. Although many are stressed for time, they find the time for travel and make the most of it.
And I think that’s something we should all emulate.
