1 in 5 leisure travelers is a senior. Learn four ways for seniors to make friends--and memories--on their next trip.
GLENDALE, Calif., Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, individuals ages 67 and older represent 21 percent of all leisure travelers, according to the United States Travel Association. Whether strolling the streets of Venice or admiring the Grand Canyon, seniors are taking off on enriching and culturally eye-opening travel experiences.
Leisure travel is a great way for seniors to make new connections, from broadening their social circles to meeting other single seniors on solo travel. MySilverAge.com outlines four ways for seniors to make friends-and memories-during their next trip.
Sign up for a learning tour. Learning excursions offer seniors the chance to expand their worldview while interacting with other tour-goers. Educational travel providers, such as Road Scholar, cater to seniors and facilitate group tours throughout the world.
Take a cultural class. From language classes to cooking lessons, new cultural experiences encourage seniors to step outside their comfort zones and bond with others in the same situation.
Pursue a volunteer program. Volunteer travel offers the chance to make friends while making a difference. Consider a travel agency such as Hands Up Holidays, which offers luxury travel combined with volunteer activities-including teaching, assisting in bakeries or helping with gardening projects.
Match up with a buddy. Some websites can help seniors connect with other folks who will be traveling to the same destination. Mingle Trips, for example, will arrange for travelers to meet a new travel buddy close to home before stepping foot onto the plane.
