Traveling for seniors can be a great way to relax and enjoy leisure time. People who have a generous nest egg can travel to many far away places. Those who have limited funds can find ways to travel to less expensive places closer to home.
Theme parks provide many activities for older travelers. Although, with theme parks there is a lot of walking, many provide wheelchairs or scooters. Theme parks are great family vacation destinations.
Beach resorts can be a perfect trip for seniors to enjoy the upmost in relaxation. For those who have passports, the choices are endless. For those who choose to stay closer to home, there are many choices on both coasts.
My favorite is cruising. Cruising is preferred by the 50-plus set because of the convenience of an all inclusive package and transportation all in one. Cruises offer many activities geared to the silver sneaker set. Meals, entertainment, sight-seeing are all self-contained on the cruise ship. With many different price options and time frames, it can be affordable to many seniors.
Another form of travel would be guided tours backed by reputable companies. Train or bus travel with many attractions visited along the way.
RV traveling is another favorite way many seniors see the country. RV’s can be rented so it isn’t necessary to buy one. You can set your own pace. Beaches to national parks have hook-up areas and amenities.
Day trips are wonderful for those of us with limited funds. Take along friends to share the expenses and you have any number of choices to visit great places within two or three hours of your home.
Motorcycles are another form of travel. Many seniors love riding their cycles on cross country trips.
With more free time and fewer restrictions that great travel adventure is just around the corner.
