What we're about

You don't have to be a Baby Boomer, but you do have to be available on weekdays and ready to walk. Our outings will take us to places that you could go on your own, but probably haven't. Some things are just easier or more fun to do with others! We'll bring you to places with a small group of interesting people you might want to get to know better. Most adventures will range from 2 to 5 miles and will include a stop for lunch or dinner, giving us time to bond while resting our feet and experiencing restaurants in the area we're exploring. On occasion we may leave the five boroughs for other towns (or other countries)!

Liability Waiver:

By going on an outing with Tourist in your own Town, you agree to participate completely at your own risk and to take full responsibility for your safety and the safety of your guests. You agree not to hold the organizer or any other member of Tourist in your own Town liable for any mishaps.


Comments are encouraged, however, bear in mind that every comment goes out by email to every member. If your comment is not meant for the entire group, please go to the Members List and privately message the person(s) you specifically want to reach.

If you have enjoyed our walks, you're encouraged to add a Group Review under the Members tab. Positive comments that might inspire prospective members to join us are particularly welcome ;)
