And there are lots of cool local sightseeing hangouts such as Marco Island, the Everglades, Sanibel Island and Siesta Key. Sometimes the group heads out for day trips for extra quality time hanging with fun peeps!

SoCal meetup group for website meetup pg

Our Southern California (SoCal) meetup group calls the greater Los Angeles area its home with Gen Xers from San Fernando, Santa Monica & Long Beach as well as Newport & Huntington Beaches. But activities and our members extend all the way to Palm Springs! There are outings to any number of the fantastic regional, scenic spots such as day/afternoon hikes & overnight camping in the surrounding national forests & parks and adventures off the coast such as whale watching. And there are laid-back events such as happy hours and festivals.

Gen Xers in the SoCal area find it even more awesome to be able to participate in this meetup group locale, since it's more of a sprawling, traffic-filled area that's not always conducive to meeting other similar-aged Gen Xer's who also love to travel, partake in active pursuits, and who overall are up for social outings with new friends!

Our DC location is one of our bigger meetup groups, which brings together Gen Xers from all 3 surrounding jurisdictions. Of course, we have many folks who live in the Nation's Capital itself. They're from every quadrant in the city from the Hill, H St NE, SW Waterfront/Navy Yard, NoMA/Chinatown, Dupont Circle, Woodley & Adams Morgan, to Columbia Heights & Petworth. There are members from Maryland just across the DC line and stretching all the way from Frederick to the north and La Plata to the south who join us for our monthly meetup outings. And their are regulars who come to our meetups & trips who live in Northern Virginia including close-in neighborhoods like Clarendon/Arlington, Rossyln & Alexandria to further out areas like Woodridge and Leesburg and beyond.

Our DC group is a very active, social meetup community. Everyone who comes out loves to travel and do & see things - locally and far-flung. And they're up for meeting other likeminded, cool travelers like themselves who like to go on trips and be out & about!

Meetups?  What in the heck is that?

"Meetup" refers to It's short-hand for the website as well as for an actual meetup event/outing. was inspired by the 9/11 attacks in 2001 and the way people in New York City came together. A sort of grassroots community-based website formed to use the Internet to make it easier for people to connect with others in their community. The site lets people find and join groups that match their interests. Any imaginable common interest such as sports activities (e.g, hiking, skiing), cars, gaming, books, movies, music, art, health, pets, careers... and travel! 

In some geographic areas where possible, we've established a Gen X Travel Club meetup group so you can find other Gen Xers in your own local area who have the same interest as you - going on trips! End result - now you have new, like-minded friends to hang and travel with! And not just any travel - super cool, non-touristy, responsible travel... with other fun, adventurous Gen Xers like yourself! Yes, please! 


Why we meetup

Because time & money are limited & other commitments take up your vacation time & budget (family, work travel etc), most folks can only go on a trip once or twice a year with us. The rest of the year, in between the trips we do, we offer monthly opportunities to get-together via our Gen X Travel Club meetup group. 
We do this because when you start to go on our trips, you begin to meet new friends who live in your local area. The monthly outings provide opportunities to stay in touch between trips with these new fun people you are meeting. They are a really great way to hang out with other Gen Xers where you live, get to know each other, and build friendships. And it gets you out & about doing fun things in your own community with other fun people like yourself!
For others, they start getting involved with Gen X Travel Club by just attending monthly get-togethers. They find it a good way to test the waters as it were - first commit to an afternoon outing or weekend outing before going all in on a big trip with people you don't know. 
Once this is confirmed & you inevitable want to hang out more with fun, like-minded Gen Xers who live near you, the monthly outings also become an excellent opportunity to meet other travelers before signing up for a trip. That way, you know who you want to be a roommate with. This really comes in handy since trip pricing is always based on double occupancy (i.e. sharing a room with someone). And most Gen Xers (at least in the beginning) sign up for trips on their own & need to be paired with a roomie. 

What we do at meetups

These casual monthly gatherings include all sorts of fun stuff such as checking out different local neighborhoods, visits to museums, gardens & other local cultural places of interest, brunch/lunch/happy hour outings, active activities like hiking & kayaking/paddleboardng, excursions to breweries/wineries/vineyards, and explorations to scenic, festive areas such as the beach/the Eastern Shore. There will always be something of interest and an activity that can accommdate your schedule. We meetup for a few hours to a few days - eat/drink outings, local sightseeing, nearby day trips and weekend getaways.
