Explore the World with Choice


Baby boomers in Canada might be retiring, but that doesn’t mean they are planning to stop exploring, meeting new people, and seeing new things.

This generation, born between 1946 and 1965, accounts for 27% of the Canadian population and, according to the Canadian Tourism Research Institute, this adventurous group will be the main market for leisure travel over the next 10 years.

As the Globe and Mail reports, the boomer set is moving away from the typical packaged holiday and is looking for authentic experiences that are infused with the unique characteristics of their destinations.

Start Exploring In Your Own Backyard

Exploring Canada is an amazing experience. It’s a vast and beautiful country that’s clean, safe, easy to navigate and it offers a variety of landscapes, a wide range of attractions and thriving art, culture and cuisine scenes. No matter what type of travel experiences you’re interested in, you’ll find something to love here. Some honourable mentions to help you start planning your trip are:

Halifax, Nova Scotia: This lively coastal city is a fascinating spot for all visitors, but especially for history lovers. Visit the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 and the impressive Citadel Hill National Historic Site, then take a ghostly evening walking tour featuring stories about the Titanic tragedy.

Montreal, Quebec: A paradise for art and culture lovers, Montreal has an abundance of festivals, galleries, museums and concerts all throughout the year. It’s a taste of Europe, without having to cross the Atlantic.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: With green parks along the South Saskatchewan River and a pedestrian friendly downtown, the prairie city of Saskatoon is a delight to explore. Also, be sure to visit Wanuskewin Heritage Park, a fascinating archeological site where First Nations artefacts older than anywhere else in North America have been unearthed.

Victoria, British Columbia: Whether you are in the mood for afternoon tea, shopping in the unique boutiques of the historic downtown or dipping your toes in the sand at Willows Beach, you’ll be delighted by this West Coast city with a decidedly British charm.
