Grab your coffee, friends and let’s talk about vacation options for our senior travels. There are dozens of traveling options for seniors and About.com is a great resource to help you find that perfect fit for you. I like their Top Destinations for Seniors as well as several of their Guided Tours.

If I were young again, I would certainly consider a Peace Corps opportunity.  How about you? A volunteer vacation is the perfect way to get to know the heart and soul of a country.

Get away from the crowds and connect with the local people.  Discover what it is like to travel with the National Peace Corps Association. Trips from 10 to 14 Days in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

USA Today had an article that speaks directly to us travelers. “Travel helps senior citizens live longer”, University of Arkansas’ geriatrician and author Dr. David Lipschitz told “The Dallas Morning News.”

And seniors who find themselves suddenly single and  afraid to journey solo, there are travel organizations that have special programs designed for single seniors.

 Senior Travelers Seek Out Top Destinations

HomeAway has many destination guides for you to consider. For many people, retirement opens up a whole new world of possibilities. The kids are grown and on their own, and you are no longer tied to your work.

This is your chance to get away, see the world, play lots of golf, and enjoy life to its fullest with family and friends. The world is your oyster, so why not spend your days out exploring.

 

 Senior travelers can find information about top destinations in the U.S. and Canada. No matter which state you visit, you’ll find many things to see and do. You’ll enjoy gorgeous scenery, entertaining shows, top-notch museums and more as you travel around the U.S.

I just had to include this site called RETIRED BRAINS for you to look at.  It is loaded with Senior Vacation Ideas. Exploritas is the new name chosen for the very successful Elderhostel program. The program offers nearly 8,000 educational tours in every state and over 90 countries.

Elderhostel, Now Exploritas Targets Seniors

The Elderhostel program, now called Exploritas, has been the not-for-profit leader in educational travel since 1975.

Exploritas effectively targets seniors who value in-depth, engaging travel experiences. This  organization serves seniors looking for a vacation that involves lectures, field trips, and learning.

Here are what Daily Women Talks lists as their Top 8 U.S. traveling destinations for seniors. I really liked their photos that highlight each of those sites.

Seniors, enjoy searching for a super trip somewhere in the world.  We have lots of options. -jeb
