These are the top 6 travel destinations for seniors. Are you looking for a relaxing time in the desert, or a toe tapping good time in Missouri? Find them here:
Green Valley, AZ
Green Valley in Arizona is a great travel destination for seniors. It is far South in Arizona and close to the Mexican border.
There is a lot of golfing, and beautiful scenery. There is nothing like the cacti and desert flowers against the dry desert terrain.
It has some of the best Native American artwork for sale, and it is town built as a retirement village. Which means everything is outfitted for seniors.
There is an amazing resort here called the Wyndham. Complaints about the resort are that it is in the middle of nowhere (which it is). It is within walking distance of a wonderful golf course and grill, but other than that you will need a car to get around.
Sedona AZ is equally split between those seeking new age cures, and seniors lured here by the peaceful and beautiful views. The quiet mystery of the dessert surrounds you, and there are golf courses galore.
Branson MO is the spot to go for the active seniors. Golf, Museums, shopping shows and much more are some of the many activities offered by this bustling city.
Santa Fe, NM
There is something magical about Santa Fe. It is where artists go to share their gifts with the world. If you like walking around and viewing one art gallery after the other, then this is the city for you.
Alaskan Cruise Ships
Visit the rugged mountains of Alaska from the comfort of a cruise ship. Stunning sunsets, wild wildlife, rugged mountains; all make for breathtaking scenery. A word of warning, check with your cell phone company before making ANY calls in Alaska or a cruise ship. Some charge $3-$10 a minute.
Las Vegas, NV
The best travel destination for seniors in Las Vegas, NV is Caesar’s Palace. It is just beautiful. There is wonderful shopping, and fun and exciting shows.
Getting around Las Vegas can get a little difficult. You can actually go in the summer time, just anticipate never going outside in the middle of the day. It may sound extreme, but it is really not that difficult. Las Vegas can easily reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit, which can get dangerous fast.
I recommend NOT renting a car. Some Casinos are connected internally (they are well aware that they have killer heat) and taxis are everywhere. I try to avoid the roads, as a lot of people like to party in Vegas, which means a lot of drinking and driving.
