Intergenerational Travel – A Growing Trend

(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 16, 2008 ) Pointe au Baril, ON -- Intergenerational travel between grandparents and grandchildren is gaining in popularity. It is a trend that started more then 20 years ago when companies, such as GRANDTRAVEL, began offering travel services exclusively to grandparents and grandchildren. Intergenerational travel is rapidly developing into a major trend in Canada as the population ages. Experts forecast that the number of Canadian seniors is expected to more than double within the next 30 years. This comes as good news to many in the Canadian travel and tourism industry that have noticed this trend and have developed their businesses to capture this growing market.

Leisure travel among Canada’s baby boomers has increased by 25 percent over the last four years. Older travelers are more active than ever before. They are interested in exploring new destinations, having more active vacations, and taking more adventure based vacations than ever before. Increasingly, many seniors want to bring their extended family along with them as well.

In the past, grandparents often lived with their children, allowing them to play a key role in the lives of their grandchildren. Today’s modern families are much more independent, making it more difficult for grandparents to bond with their grandchildren. Many grandparents looking for ways to draw their modern families closer together are discovering the rewards of taking grandchildren on vacation.

One option for grandparents who want a meaningful holiday experience connecting with their grandchildren is an Ontario cottage resort vacation. Bruce Bishop, owner of Pleasant Cove Resort (http://www.pleasantcove.com), a family operated four-season cottage resort on Georgian Bay, believes that a cottage resort vacation is a great choice for intergenerational family holidays. “An Ontario cottage resort vacation allows families a great deal of flexibility. A lakefront cottage resort offers all the activities and amenities of a resort with the comfort of a private cottage. Our cottages have full kitchens so meals can be prepared according to the grandkid’s tastes and schedules. A cottage provides a safe, comfortable and relaxed environment for everyone to enjoy his or her time together. At Pleasant Cove Resort there is so much for families to do. From fishing, boating, swimming, tennis to making sandcastles on the beach, there is something for everyone. Our KIDZ CLUB children’s program will even entertain the kids while grandparents play a round of golf or just take a break,” states Bishop.

Over the last few years, Bishop has noted a considerable increase in the number of grandparents booking vacations with grandchildren. He feels that his resort will benefit from this trend as the number of baby boomers looking to establish a closer bond with their grandchildren continues to grow. “Helping your grandchild catch his first fish, sharing a picnic lunch on a wilderness hike or an evening spent together roasting marshmallows by the campfire can be memories that last a life time. There is nothing quite like an Ontario cottage vacation,” adds Bishop.

For many grandparents short visits and occasional overnight stays with grandchildren don’t provide nearly enough time together. More and more Canadian seniors are finding that taking their grandchildren on vacation is a great bonding experience and a chance to make some wonderful memories together.
