A common stereotype of baby boomers is that they regularly vacation in locations like Florida and Arizona. While a vacation full of relaxation by the pool, fishing and shopping may appeal to a large number of boomers, many may be more interested in a more adventurous trip that's suited for their age.
As many boomers are approaching their retirement, rides in luxury limousines and vacations packed with unique activities may seem appealing. Though it may not be the first destination that comes to mind when one thinks of a trip of that nature, Denver has quite a bit to offer.
According to a press release from the Convention and Visitors Bureau of VISIT DENVER, the Mile High City has 300 days of sunshine every year and is great for golfing. Since many boomers probably can't muscle long drives down the fairway anymore, they'll be pleased to learn that balls actually travel 10 percent farther in Denver – which is 5,280 feet above sea level – than in lower locations.
Beer fans who are visiting Denver will have a lot of opportunities to toast, as the city brews more than any city in the United States. According to a press release, more than 200 varieties of beer are brewed in Denver every day.
For boomers who are looking to entertain young children in Denver, Dinosaur Ridge, where the first dinosaur bones were ever found, is a must-see.
