Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between activity participation at a travel destination and the effects of biological age, time of travel, and generational cohort over time. Household data from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, and the Canadian province of Ontario were utilized because the data yielded longitudinal information about travel behavior across the study region. Significant relationships were found between “Shopping,” “Outdoor Recreation,” and “Entertainment” factors and the effects of biological age, time of travel, and generational cohort.
