Though the Baby Boomer generation as a whole is nearing the age of retirement, it seems their bodies aren’t slowing down anytime soon. Often recognized as a generation that prioritizes health and wellness, the Baby Boomer generation lives an active lifestyle on the go. That’s why it’s no surprise these jet-setting adults love to escape into vacation mode.
Below we have compiled the best destinations in the eastern U.S. for Boomers:
Nantucket is now an official National Historic District with stunning views and plenty to see. From beautiful architecture to the numerous historic sites within walking distance from its town center, there is a little bit of something for everyone on this quaint island.
Fort Myers, FL
Fort Myers is popular for its beaches, fishing, shopping – and the opportunity to learn about two of the nation’s most famed inventors and business leaders. The Thomas Edison and Henry Ford winter estates now serve as museums that honor their founders and remind all of us about what they have accomplished during their lifetime.
Portland is a coastal coastal city that offers a lovely waterfront atmosphere and tasty food. From the looks of this historic city, you would never know its tumultuous past. After two major fires, the city rose from the ashes to make a name for itself as both a cultural and economic center.
Boomers love Music City! A charming and soulful destination, Nashville is a beautiful and peaceful getaway destination. From its legendary country music venues to Downtown area filled with legendary honky-tonks and dance halls, this city has much to offer visitors of all types and does not cease to impress all!
Daytona Beach, Florida
Sun, sand, and salt water! A relaxing getaway, Daytona Beach is very “boomer-friendly.” Daytona Beach has come a long way since its earlier days as Spring Break capital of the world. Now known for its scenic views and soft sand, Daytona offers visitors a well-deserved getaway in the sun.
Another coastal favorite among boomers, this historic riverfront destination has an old-time feel merged with new-age touches. Take a trolley tour, see the history district, eat at the mouth-watering restaurants! Savannah has a rich history and plenty of that good ole’ Southern charm. Walking around Savannah you are bound to run into some sort of open-air concerts, plays, festivals, or other forms of live entertainment.
