For the second year, Healthy Aging® Magazine will be presenting unique active travel ideas to travelers at the New York Times Travel Show, January 26 to 29, in New York City.

Over 30,000 visitors will wander through the aisles of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on New York’s west side hoping to pick up ideas for their next getaway.

Healthy Aging® Magazine is an official media partner of the show and the Healthy Aging® Magazine editors will be hosting booth #648. The editors will be on hand to offer ideas to the active adult travelers who are researching where to go for “insider” local experiences, active sports destinations, voluntourism programs, educational and cultural opportunities, retirement relocation, as well as wellness, bucket list and solo travel.

Four Amazing Vacation Drawing Prizes

Travel Show a Must for Active Travelers Seeking Ideas

“We are excited to be one of the official media partners of the New York Times Travel Show for the second year,” Carolyn Worthington, Healthy Aging® Magazine publisher said. “And, particularly about the amazing places we will be offering as part of the Healthy Aging® Magazine drawing at our booth.

“We were blown away by the numbers of 45-plus visitors last year bolstering our belief that this group is ready and able to take on the world – again. We will be sharing ideas for insider experiences you don’t see on every travel website.”

“Trends we are seeing include more grandparents traveling with their grandchildren, a greater interest in experiences among an already well-traveled group, desire to combine ‘active’ with relaxation,” Worthington said. “Gone are the days of moving from one meal to the next. Our audience wants ideas for feeling great after a vacation as opposed to packing on pounds from sitting and eating.”

What’s New for 2018 at the Show?

Here is your chance to travel the world under one roof. Visit with over 560 exhibitors representing more than 170 countries. The Show floor is separated into 16 Pavilions including: Adventure, Africa, Asia, Australia/South Pacific, Canada, Caribbean, Cruise, Europe, Family, Latin America, Mexico, River Cruises, Sponsors, Travel Products/Services, Wellness and the USA.

View performance stages, take part in wine & food tastings and culinary presentations from around the world, attend seminars with featured speakers, meet one-on-one with travel experts like publisher of Healthy Aging® Magazine, Carolyn Worthington, who will be offering tips for active travel, decade birthday destinations, anniversary trips, wellness destinations and ideas for where to go if you want to be active but not over-the-top active.

This year marks the 15th year of the New York Times Travel Show. To celebrate, the theme for this year’s show is “Celebrating 15 Years of Uncommon Adventures.”
