I have often been asked where is a good place for “seniors” to visit? What is a good travel destination? My answer always is, there is no one, or two good travel destinations for seniors. As far as I’m concerned, travel is an individual preference. Some people like visiting Europe. Some like cruises to the Caribbean. The National Parks are very popular.
It seems that the one constant, however, is one’s health and ability to travel. As we age travel and mobility can become more difficult. If mobility is an issue, then maybe a cruise is a little bit better for you as you can limit your walking while on a cruise ship. A tour to the ancient cobblestone streets of Europe might be a bit of a challenge.
Know your limitations and travel accordingly. That’s why the VEGAS VOYAGERS offers trips for all physical abilities. Take our “Bus to the Boat” if mobility is a bit of a challenge. We bus right to the pier and drop you off within 100 feet of the pier entrance. Or take our trip to Israel where there will be a bit more walking as we visit all the holy sights and all that Israel has to offer.
But most of all, continue to travel for as long as your able. If you do, you will continue to accumulate experiences that you can tell all your family and friends about. You will add to the bank of memories that you can pass on to your children and grandchildren. These adventures will become a part of your family history and narrative. And isn’t that what it’s all about. Happy Adventures to all.
