Travel is the most popular leisure activity for active senior citizens. As their children grow up and move out, seniors have plenty of free time to pursue their passions, including traveling. For divorced and widowed seniors, travel is also popular. They just need to change, and travel is the best way to cure the wound and let go the past.
