Wawona Masts; Boomer Tourism

Wawona's masts are scheduled to be removed today. More on this later.

A blog called "Boomers" has posted a brief, but nice article on baby boomers and tourism. [link] This is a key audience for maritime heritage organizations that want to reach this market. As the article says, these travelers are interested in "immersive learning" and heritage tourism, which is a specialty of many maritime groups.
