Sometimes, what you need is a nice getaway with your girlfriends to experience some girl bonding time. So, we’ve compiled a list of our top 10 bonding trips for boomer women in 2024.
1. Eat Your Way Around the World
Why not begin your traveling experience by eating your way around the world? Wine and meals are made to have with friends, so why not book a wine-tasting tour, a five-course meal, or take a cooking class to discover new flavors? To get inspiration for meals, you can explore farmers’ markets or learn from top chefs as you make your way worldwide to discover unique tasting experiences.
2. Authentic Experiences
Remaining at the top of the list of bonding trips for boomer women is discovering authentic experiences. There’s something about traveling, connecting with new people in an unfamiliar location, and learning about their country, way of life, and language. If you really want to take traveling to another level, you can rent out a location for a short period to connect with the residents instead of staying in a hotel with tourists.
3. Spa Traveling
Boomers continue to lead generations traveling for relaxation and have been for decades, and they don’t plan on stopping any time soon. Traveling to a spa location offers luxury treatments, hot saunas, and even hot springs in specific locations and improves the health of boomer women. Whether you want to go hiking, take a yoga class, or hang out in the sauna, boomer women can feel confident in knowing that they’ll return home rejuvenated.
4. Bucket List Traveling
Do you have any destinations that remain on your bucket list that you’re still interested in traveling to at some point? If you already know what destination you’d like to visit, book a vacation with your boomer girlfriends and make it an annual trip, taking turns choosing the destination each year. But, if you have the opportunity, why limit traveling to once a year when you can make it two or even three times a year?
5. Artistic Retreats
For boomer women who are interested in writing in forms of self-expression, you can take your novel or poetry to another level by taking an artistic retreat. When traveling, you can get tips from other like-minded individuals who show an interest in writing, and by the time you return home, you’ll have everything you need to achieve your goals.
6. Tour Festivals
You might be getting older, but it doesn’t mean you still can’t attend a festival when traveling with the younger generations. You can dance around in Brazil, celebrate India’s Holi Festival, or even visit the Gulf Shores to attend their Songwriting Festival. If you do enough research, you’ll quickly find that almost every location has some type of festival or event that occurs at specific times each year, so knowing ahead of time can better assist you with planning your getaway.
7. Travel With Old Friends
If you have Facebook, you most likely have already begun connecting with old friends from your childhood or previous employment. As a boomer, many of your friends have most likely moved to different areas of the United States or even to other parts of the world. If you want to meet up with good friends and reminisce about the old days, contact your girlfriends to set up a getaway, whether it’s to a beach resort or on a cruise. The possibilities are endless!
8. Volunteer Traveling
If you want to make a true change in the lives of those you meet worldwide, a great way for you and your boomer girlfriends to travel is to consider volunteering. Volunteering provides opportunities to help with maintenance in preserving natural areas or assisting at an elderly facility with a reduced cost in traveling. When volunteering, you’ll still be able to see the world and help those around you while exploring new destinations.
9. Plan a Road Trip
When wanting to make the ultimate boomer getaway, you can’t go wrong with a road trip. Road trips add just enough balance to discovering new locations, all while getting to a stop whenever you want to explore new activities along the way. If you want to live on the edge, turn off your GPS and let the road lead the way!
10. Escape to a New City
If you want to take advantage of many bundled packages that offer scenic landscapes, champagne, tickets to tours, and more, consider booking a hotel package in a new city. If you haven’t done so yet, you can explore your local town or book a trip to a new city to learn about architecture, history, and its way of public transportation.
