Grandparents Day 2015 - Do Something Grand Like Travel

National Grandparents Day 2015

Sunday, September 13 is the National Grandparents Day 2015

Some ideas on how you can spend grand time with your family:

Take a tour of your town
Learn more about your hometown, as well as your grandparent or
grandchild. Visit the buildings where localdecisions are made (i.e. Mayor’s office, city council,
state capital, etc.). Talk about the political process and the ways young people can get involved.

Hit the aquarium or the zoo
Trips with grandchildren can combine both education and fun. And these locations are both. They get to see and experience various creatures in the water and on land.

Go for a hike
You will both get exercise while learning about the great outdoors. To keep it interesting for the kids try incorporating scavenger hunts

Explore the United States
There are events being held throughout the country in celebration that include multi-generational activities.

Take a Cruise
It does not have to be a long one as the younger generation would need to get back to school. There are cruises that sail nearby for 3-4 days. Take the whole family, unpack once, and enjoy the scenery, food, and entertainment.

Leave parents behind, and take grand kids
On a tour adventure trips to remote places that they will never forget. Expose the kids to other cultures and let them experience a bit of their independence, while you form a better bond.

Boomers Travel Gadgets

Top Baby Boomer Travel Gadgets

These days, picking the best high-tech product for you is no easy task. There are many choices with even more variations. Staying on top of trends and the newest gadgetry can be frustrating and time-consuming. We are looking to make it a bit easier to figure out what gadgets to bring on your next trip by compiling some of the top devices in one easy to see and use place.


iPad is a great choice for travel – it is a user-friendly and lightweight computer to access email, news, search the web, and buy products. It is also great for communicating with friends and family via chat or video.

Amazon Voyage is the newest addition to Kindle family. And it is one of the best for travel. Voyage, a great travel related name, has crisp, 6" hi-resolution multi-touch color display. It has Wi-Fi support for connectivity, USB ports, new adaptive front light that provides ideal brightness day or night, and is extremely lightweight at 14.5 ounces. A single battery charge can last up to six weeks based on light setting and wireless usage.


Baby boomers rely on their medications to keep them healthy
This involves complex medication schedules that need to be followed even more so when traveling. Missing some of these can lead to missing doses, taking incorrect amounts, or taking medicines at the wrong times. There are gadgets and apps to help sort this out

The pill reminder replaces the cap on your standard 33m medicine bottle. It is easy to set and it automatically records last opened day and time and sounds alarms throughout the day to remind to take the pills

Similar to the cap, this pill container also provides reminders during the day with vibrations and sounds.

Charging Those Gadgets

Belkin SurgePlus 3-Outlet Mini Travel Swivel Charger Surge Protector
Its a slim travel size combo power strip that includes surge protection and a USB charger for two devices, including laptops, digital cameras, e-book readers, etc. Great for hotel rooms and airports to get some extra outlets for all of the gadgets.
