About

Roaming Boomers Dave Carol PorterWelcome to The Roaming Boomers!
Who We Are

In 1991, we wrote into our life-plan that we would like to be “retire-able” when I (David) reached the age of 50.

In 2006, exactly on my 50th birthday, remarkably our dream came true as we sold our business and moved from Michigan to Scottsdale, Arizona. However, little did we know that 2008 would bring a stock market collapse that would wipe away 45% of our life’s savings.

Devastated, we decided to re-invent ourselves and embrace our passion for travel. It was out of the ashes of the great 2008 market depression that The Roaming Boomers® was born.

What We Do
  • Online Travel Guide – we’ve been traveling the world and leaving behind a trail of cookies in our website.  Here you will find over 1,000 articles as we’ve explored wonderful destinations around the world, luxurious accommodations, fabulous cuisine with the world’s best chefs, as well as helping you know what to see and do. Every destination features a written journal of our experience, our own photography, and over 200 on-site videos that we’ve created to help you more easily explore the world on your own.
  • Group Tours – our readers have loudly voiced a desire to come along with us as we explore the world.  In response, we now offer small group outings in Arizona, around the country, and even around the world.
  • Travel Planning – the loudest cry from our readers is their disdain for travel planning.  The Internet has become a seemingly infinite pool of knowledge about travel.  However, filtering through all that information, the time it takes to do so, and knowing who to trust has become a huge frustration for many travelers.  In response, we have affiliated with a local, highly respected travel agency and through our connections with the world-renowned Virtuoso Travel Network, we now have booking access to the world best hotels, resorts, ocean cruises, river cruises, group travel, and so much more.
