The Packet (Clarenville) - - Editorial - BY JONATHAN PAR­SONS Jonathan.par­sons@thep­acket.ca Twit­ter: @je­j­par­sons

While Bonavista is a popular tourist des­ti­na­tion for peo­ple of all ages, ac­cord­ing to the Ex­pe­dia.ca Trav­elBlog con­tent team, it’s a top Cana­dian des­ti­na­tion for baby boomers in par­tic­u­lar.

In an ar­ti­cle writ­ten by Jen­nifer Cuel­lar, Bonavista was one of 13 dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions in Canada picked by baby boomers as a good des­ti­na­tion.

“Bonavista was rec­om­mended by name in our sur­vey by baby boomers, and it’s cer­tainly well-de­served. With stun­ning sights like ice­bergs and restau­rants with as­tound­ingly good seafood, this is a per­fect des­ti­na­tion for sea­soned trav­ellers,” says Cuel­lar.

Ex­pe­dia also cited this in­for­ma­tion as good news, as ac­cord­ing to the Cana­dian Tourism In­sti­tute, the baby boom gen­er­a­tion is set to be­come the main travel mar­ket over the next decade, spend­ing about $35 bil­lion each year.

The 12 other des­ti­na­tions in­cluded on the list are: St. Thomas, Ont.; White Rock, B.C.; Cavendish Beach, P.E.I.; Ed­mon­ton, Alb.; Cowichan Val­ley, B.C.; Grand Manan Is­land, N.B.; Cal­gary, Alb.; Thomp­son, Man.; Hamil­ton, Ont.; Co­mox Val­ley, B.C.; Cochrane, Alb.; and Que­bec City, Que.
