FOR BOOMERS: A new travel Web site has been launched for Baby Boomers at http://www.boomeropia.com .

The site lists trips and tours in 30 categories, from adventure to pet travel to beaches and bed-and-breakfasts.

Other categories include cruises, culinary travel, golf, fishing and "glamping" -- which means "glamorous" camping or camping trips where the tour operator does all the hard work for you, with comfortable tents and catered meals.
