Seniors on vacation

As the weather begins to warm up again, it’s the perfect time to shake off the dregs of winter with a vacation. Springtime vacations fall right before peak vacation season, so prices are lower and locations are less crowded. The only thing you need to decide is where you want to go. Depending on your vacation style and budget, one of these options may be right for you:


Transportation? Check. Food? Check. Entertainment? Check. If you like to have everything taken care of with one flat price, a cruise is the way to go. Cruises make for the perfect carefree vacation. All you have to do is pick a destination and you have hours of entertainment and relaxation as part of the package. If you want to escape the cold and put winter behind you, you may want to try a Caribbean or Mexican cruise. If you’re not ready for winter to end, you may want to try an Alaskan or Antarctic cruise.

Family Trips

If you don’t like traveling alone or you haven’t had enough time with your grandkids lately, plan a trip for the whole family. Getaway to a place that can offer entertainment and fun for everyone in the family, regardless of age. California and Florida make great locations for this. Theme parks like Disneyland or Sea World are ideal for families since they provide activities and entertainment for the kids as well as adults.

Group Tour

If you prefer to have more structured fun on your vacation, you may want to try a group tour abroad or a historical trip that sets a clear itinerary for your day-to-day activities. Depending on how packed you want your trip to be you can plan a tour that allows for leisure time. During these tours you can spend multiple days in the same city and balance guided tours with free time.

Beach Resort

Maybe the hustle and bustle of a city or the mayhem of a family trip doesn’t sound much like a vacation to you. Perhaps when you envision your ideal getaway, you picture white sand, fresh seafood, and the relaxing sound of the waves hitting the beach. Does that sound more like you? If so, you may want to opt for an all-inclusive resort where you can relax and spend your time swimming or enjoying your favorite book on the beach.

Regardless of your vacation style, there are locations for you and now is the perfect time to book your senior-friendly trip.
