Seniors Seek Out Tellico Plains


This senior went online once again to search out some beautiful cities, small ones if possible. So I searched in Tennessee and up came The 10 Most Beautiful Towns in Tennessee.

Tellico Plains ranked right up there with the most famous large cities. I had never heard of this city of about 1,000, so it was time to check it out. The locals like to call it “The Little Town with the Big Back Yard.”


The town was named for Great Tellico, a Cherokee town at the site of present-day Tellico Plains, where the Tellico River emerges from the Appalachian Mountains. Great Tellico was one of the largest Cherokee towns in the region, and had a sister town nearby named Chatuga.

Seniors Enjoy Premiere Trout Stream

The Tellico River is nationally recognized as a premiere trout stream, renowned for brook, brown, and rainbow trout. Senior fishermen, care to try your luck here? Located in outheastern Tennessee, Tellico Plaines is the gateway to the Cherokee National Forest.

A charming, antiquated mountain town in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Tellico Plains’ beautiful mountainous scenery, rolling countryside, quaint farmlands and scenic pathways make it a perfect getaway for senior travelers seeking a simpler way of life and breathtaking views.


Tellico Plains offers a multitude of outdoor activities within the nearly 700,000 acres of the Cherokee National Forest, and is a fantastic location for nature-watching.

 Cherokee National Forest Draws Visitors

The town is also home to Bald River Falls, a magnificent waterfall flowing over 100 feet and a popular area landmark. The nearby proximity of the Cherokee National Forest to Tellico Plains opens the doors to hiking, backpacking, camping, sightseeing, wildlife viewing, hunting, touring, horseback riding, bicycling, and even gold panning.


Pack a sandwich and find a picnic table at one of the overlooks, perch on a riverside boulder, or spread your blanket in a mountain meadow. Small as it is, Tellico Plains’ economy is fueled by the Cherohala Skyway and the Cherokee National Forest.

Tellico Plains offers many hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding trails of varying levels of difficulty. Backpackers can discover secluded unspoiled wilderness. Plains is proud to be a Trail Town, as designated by the Southeastern Foot Trails Coalition (SEFTC) and the Benton MacKaye Trail Association (BMTA) in 2014.


Seniors will find everything you need in this vintage mountain town, including lodging, camping, cabin rentals, restaurants, cozy ice cream shop, friendly bakery, cafe and motorcycle shops.

Lots of amenities for its small size so plug Tellico Plains into your GPS and have fun exploring. -jeb


Tualatin Rates High With Seniors

Gateway-Geese-2-MobileI search for what are called Outstanding Communities and recently I came across a contest seeking such.  Millions of dollars are at stake as a panel of judges seek out the best economic revitalization projects in the country. It’s called “America’s Best Communities.” Low and behold, up came Tualatin, Oregon. Ever heard of Tualatin, seniors?

Pronounced TU-A-LA-TIN, this is a dynamic, vibrant community of 27,000, conveniently located 12 miles south of Portland and 30 miles north of Salem, the state capital. The name of the city is taken from the Tualatin River, which flows along most of the city’s northern boundary.

Tualatin is often referred to as the community of “Rocks, Bones, Water and Wonders.” This senior was curious about those bones and discovered that the town has loads of Ice Age History. Geological historians agree that a series of Ice Age floods, bursting down from the Montana and Canadian border, over 15,000 years ago, define Tualatin’s geography and left lasting clues about prehistoric life.


 Adventurous Seniors Enjoy Tualatin

Tualatin is a short distance to adventure: skiing, snowboarding, and sledding on majestic Mt. Hood in the Cascade Mountain Range, family-friendly summer water activities on the central Oregon Coast, national-level wind-surfing or parasailing on the Columbia River, while enjoying the natural beauty of Multnomah Falls in Columbia Gorge National Recreation Area. Senior travelers, let that perk up your ears and draw your attention to a great place for a visit.

Oregon’s Willamette Valley, features year-round fun, from exciting festivals and outdoor recreation to distinctive shopping, to experiencing the Ice Age history of this unique region. Ever eat a crawfish/crayfish/crawdad or mud puppy? All the same. I have down in Louisiana where folks feast on them regularly.

 Seniors Take in Crawfish Festival


Tualatin has an annual Crawfish Festival and along with that a Cork & Kegs Festival. The 2016 event will be held on August 5th- 7th. In 1951 the First Annual Tualatin Crawfish Festival took place. It was during this year that crawfish had inhabited the Tualatin River to excess. Thus, the idea of Crawfish Festival was born. Through the years, this hugely successful festival has grown to an average number of 12,000 attendees annually.

So Tualatin is distinctive for many reasons, including a host of unrivaled community events all year long that favor folks of all ages. I’d love to watch the annual West Coast Giant Pumpkin Regatta. It is a zany series of races in boats made out of…get this… giant pumpkins. This family-friendly event gets bigger and better every year.

Seniors, set your GPS for Tualatin and enjoy all that the town has to offer. It looks like a great place to live and to visit! -jeb


Seniors Make Ely a Destination Town


I asked Google for the Most Beautiful Towns in Minnesota, and up came Ely. Senior travelers will find it is located on the Vermilion Iron Range, with a population of around 3,500, and is historically home to several iron ore mines.

Whether you’re in Minnesota canoeing into the unspoiled, world-famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) or relaxing at one of the hotels in Ely, senior visitors are  sure to enjoy their visit.


Ely is the largest “jumping off” town for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The BWCAW is renowned as a destination for both canoeing and fishing on its many lakes, and is the most visited wilderness in the United States.

With extensive outfitting and other services, Ely can credibly claim to do the most wilderness canoe outfitting of any town or city in the world.

Seniors Enjoy Stunning Natural Scenery In Ely

Once voted one of the coolest small towns in America, Ely is host to stunning natural scenery, outdoor activities and its fair share of independent pubs and bars. The wilderness area is one of the world’s foremost canoeing destinations.


For those that can’t make the trip five hours north of the Twin Cities, there are live webcam links of the city and nearby wilderness running day and night. Let Wikipedia fill you in on a fascinating history of the area.

Senior adventurers will find 22 professional canoe trip outfitters in Ely. More than just canoe renters, an outfitter is an outdoor recreation professional.

They are biologists, historians and woods-wise guides whose knowledge and love of this area will add immensely to the pleasure you’ll have on a boundary waters canoe trip. Feel up to that experience? Many have.

Seniors Might See The Northern Lights

Now imagine the view of a summer sunset across a remote Minnesota lake, as I have with a cabin on a lakeshore, with the haunting cries of a loon serenading you to sleep each night. Adventurous seniors might even see the northern lights from your campsite.


“Ely” was chosen in honor of mining executive Samuel B. Ely, a big promoter of Vermilion Range ore who lived in Michigan and never actually visited the town that bears his name. I’d definitely want to visit the International Wolf Center in Ely.

Senior hikers, there are many Minnesota wilderness hiking trails in the area. Echo Trail, considered one of the most scenic trails in Minnesota, is a former logging road that provides the primary access to the lakes of the western Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

The trail is a 72 mile (116 km) road on asphalt and gravel through the wilderness of the Superior National Forest and Kabetogama State Forest. My family used to fish on Kabetogama Lake. Enjoy all the scenic wonder and many amenities that this city has to offer.   -jeb


Seniors Discover Small Town Darrington

Darrington_Profile_Photo_400x400 Darrington is a town in Snohomish County, Washington, with a population of 1,347 at the 2010 census. This senior picked up on Darrington as Darrington/Arlington, Washington Advances in $10 Million America’s Best Communities Competition.

Darrington/Arlington is one of just 15 community teams nationwide to make the competition’s semifinals, with an opportunity to win up to $3 million. The motto: “Discover Darrington. It will take a lifetime.” Wow, for a small community that says a lot.“ America’s Best Communities competition could not have appeared at a better time…” stated City of Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert.

The first to settle in the area were the people of the Sauk-Suiattle Tribe.  When gold was discovered in 1889 prospectors flooded into the Cascade mountains and the boom town of Darrington began.  Later in 1901 when the first train reached Darrington logging and sawmills began operation.

 Seniors Find Darrington In A Scenic Place

Nestled in the northern Cascades, Darrington is surrounded by beautiful mountains, rivers, and wilderness lands, a community that has strong ties to it’s mountainous surroundings. Nestled among the forested foothills and impressive peaks of the North Cascades, Darrington is a small town with picturesque views and world-class recreational opportunities for senior visitors to enjoy.14575643669_e9710668e4_b

“Only 1.5 hours from Seattle, the town is the gateway to the outdoors, offering countless adventures along three wild and scenic rivers – the Stillaguamish, Sauk, and Suiattle – and the vast network of public lands, including three wilderness areas – Boulder River, Henry M. Jackson, and Glacier Peak – where some of the most spectacular views and experiences await. Hiking, camping, biking, climbing, fishing, horseback riding, guided rafting, and more – Darrington has it all!”

Gold, Waterfall And The Great Outdoors

Once called “The Portage”, the town was renamed Barrington in 1895 following a community meeting. The U.S. Postal Department mistakenly changed the first letter to a “D”, resulting in the current name. Gold was discovered at Monte Cristo in the summer of 1889 and prospectors began to flood into the Cascade Mountains.


A road was punched into Monte Cristo from Sauk City on the Skagit River. The location of where Darrington is now became a half-way point on the road, then a boomtown called “Starve Out”. Be sure to take in Boulder River Trail and view the largest waterfall near Darrington.

One claim to fame is Bob Barker, host of the The Price Is Right, was born in Darrington, Washington. In early 2014 a craft brewery “Whiskey Ridge Brewing Company” became the first craft brewery in Darrington. It was located in the historic Old City Town Hall building but moved to Arlington in 2015 and is located at 116 E 5th Street, Arlington.

I have discovered that Facebook has a lot to say about communities like Darrington. So set your GPS for Darrington, senior travelers and enjoy all that this small town has to offer.  It’s on my travel bucket list. -jeb


Seniors Head West To Bozeman

entry_sub1Bozeman, the county seat of Gallatin County, Montana, senior travelers learn, is in the southwestern part of the state. Bozeman is called “The Most Liveable Place.”

The city is named after John M. Bozeman who established the Bozeman Trail and was a key founder of the town in August 1864. Bozeman is a college town, home to Montana State University. The city is served by Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.


In 1863 John Bozeman, along with a partner named John Jacobs, opened the Bozeman Trail, a new northern trail off the Oregon Trail leading to the mining town of Virginia City through the Gallatin Valley and the future location of the city of Bozeman.

Seniors Admire Bozeman’s Location


One of MSU’s greatest assets is its location. Bozeman is known as one of the top towns for outdoor recreation and high quality of life in the country; just look at its top rankings in magazines like Outside, National Geographic Adventurer, Powder Magazine and Fly Rod.

Runner’s World magazine recently named Bozeman’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Run to the Pub the No. 2 “must-run” half marathon in the nation.

Seniors, Bozeman averages 300 days of sunshine and because of the dry climate, summers are pleasant with warm days and cool nights. Mild winter weather is not unusual, and more than a week of consistently frigid weather is infrequent.

Bozeman is small enough to have a personality and big enough to have all the amenities of a city. The area attracts artists, photographers, filmmakers, authors and entrepreneurs who want to work close to nature. Cultural offerings include a symphony orchestra, opera, theatre and ballet companies.


 Seniors Discover A ‘Dream Town’

There’s a reason Bozeman (pop. 38,000) has been dubbed a “dream town” by and lauded for offering high quality of life by National Geographic Adventure. Add the cultural amenities of a local symphony and ballet, the vibrancy of a college community, and an energetic downtown-Bozeman is the complete package.

Senior travelers, when you fly in over the Bridger Range or drive into the valley and find yourself surrounded by mountains, it’s easy to understand why people want to live, work and play in this place.


Bozeman’s Main Street was named one of the “10 Great Streets for 2012″ by The American Planning Association and their program, Great Places in America. Enjoy world-renowned fly fishing, dramatic mountains for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, hunting, and backcountry exploring. Then there’s Yellowstone National Park, and all its impressive wildlife.

Me, I’d head for Downtown Bozeman and take a good stroll around and then I would head over to the Gallatin History Museum and discover all that has happened in this area. Seniors, enjoy all the amenities this great city has to offer. -jeb

Seniors Visit Florida’s Sea Islands

Seniors Flock Over To Amelia Island

imagesAmelia Island is part of the Sea Islands chain of barrier islands, on Florida’s Atlantic coast. If seniors are looking for a tranquil getaway, give a good look at Amelia Island, along Florida’s northeast coast.

Just 30 miles from Jacksonville, it is a world apart. Golden-hued sands and guided horseback rides along the shore. Dolphin and osprey and maybe even a glimpse of the endangered right whale. Today it’s a popular holiday destination known for its luxury resorts, golf courses and numerous sandy beaches.

Named for Princess Amelia, daughter of George II of Great Britain, the island has changed hands between colonial powers a number of times. It is claimed that eight flags have flown over Amelia Island: French, Spanish, British, Patriot, Green Cross, Mexican, Confederate, and United States.

Seniors Find ‘A Pearl In The Necklace’


Travel & Leisure notes that Amelia Island is A Pearl in the Necklace of barrier islands that hug the Atlantic Coast from South Carolina to Florida. Now part of Nassau County, Florida, Amelia Island has been claimed by many colonial powers and native people-from Indian tribes to pirates-all of whom have left their mark on the small island.

Thankfully, travel to Amelia Island these days is short on piracy and long on golfing featuring 117 holes of championship-caliber golf.

A timeless destination known for pristine nature and uncrowded beaches, it offers world-class golf, spas and restaurants, plus a rich history. It is 30 minutes from JAX International Airport and 90 from St. Augustine. Senior visitors learn that the Fort Clinch State Park, the Amelia Island Historic District and the Fernandina Beach are not to be missed.


Rich in history and natural beauty, senior visitors will enjoy 13 miles of pristine beaches, abundant wildlife and clear, calm waters. Amelia Island and its quaint charm has been a beloved destination for generations.

Seniors Enjoy Golf, Events and Historic Pirate Town

Amelia Island  is host to the annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, a Jazz Festival, Chamber Music Festival, Film Festival, the automotive charitable event Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and a Blues Festival.

There are seven golf courses on Amelia Island. One of the most popular resorts is Amelia Island Plantation, a 1350 acre AAA Four Diamond resort that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west.


Senior visitors learn that the northern third of Amelia Island is dominated by the historic pirate town of Fernandina Beach, birthplace of the modern shrimping industry. Much of the red brick architecture along Centre Street reflects the 1800s and early 1900s.

While Fernandina is normally a sleepy little town, each May thousands of visitors from around the Southeast crowd Centre Street for the annual Isle of 8 Flags Shrimp Festival.

Perhaps Amelia Island is best known for its huge bluff-height dunes and white sandy, wide beaches. Spend a few days on Amelia Island and you will return home with many fond memories. -jeb


Seniors Enjoy San Luis Potosí


I have been all over Mexico, but not to San Luis Potosí, commonly called SLP or simply San Luis. This capital city in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí is home to over 722,000 inhabitants. Seniors, get your coffee, we’re off to Mexico today to a Bucket List city.

San Luis Potosí, which has some of the richest silver mines in Mexico, is also where Gonzales Bocanegra wrote the Mexican national anthem in 1854. The state, San Luis Potosi, is a glorious secret for senior outdoor adventurers, encompassing territory as diverse as rainforest and high desert and scored by hundreds of majestic mountains.


Located in North-Central Mexico, the state is bordered by 9 other Mexican states, making it the state with the most borders with other neighboring states. The mean elevation is about 6,000 ft ensuring a temperate climate for the most part.

TripAdvisor notes three dozen things that senior visitors can see and do, starting off with the Huasteca Potosina and the beautiful Cathedral. Me I’d want to be sure to take in a site called the Cave of Swallows (Sotano De las Golondrinas).

Seniors Find Colonial Charm

The city is full of “Colonial Charm,” but then Mexico has that in all four corners. Historically, while scant information exists on the state’s pre-Hispanic era, the Huastecos, Chichimecas and Guachichile Indians are believed to have inhabited the lands that now comprise San Luis Potosí as far back as 10,000 B.C.


The grand old dame of colonial cities, San Luis Potosí was once a revolutionary hotbed, an important mining town and seat of government to boot. Today the city has maintained its poise as the prosperous state capital, orderly industrial center and university seat.

The city’s colonial core is made up of numerous plazas and manicured parks that are linked by attractive pedestrian streets. Although not as striking as Zacatecas or Guanajuato, this lively city’s cultural elegance is reflected in its delightful colonial buildings, impressive theater and numerous excellent museums. I am good at wandering, ask my wife…how about you?


Seniors Enjoy Big, Awesome Architecture

From El Mirador, a famous waterfall, Tangamanga Park and great museums, I’d want to be sure to wander around the Historic Downtown area starting in Founders Square that dates back to 1592. Don’t miss the Water Tank, a neoclassical monument quarry.

San Luis Potosí is synonymous with big and awesome architecture. Many buildings are made of quarry in Baroque style that contrasts with the lordly and elegant neoclassic style prevalent in the city as well as in the local architecture of the houses with their characteristic facades and the large, iron window frames.

Senior travelers, enjoy the many amenities of this awesome Mexican city. -jeb

Seniors Seek Adventure On The Red Island

277a Years back this senior had a friend whose father was a missionary in Madagascar, a Magical Country.   She learned the dominant local language and that always impressed me being a language teacher myself.  She also learned French, the “official language”. There are several native tongues amongst the almost 23 million inhabitants on the island. Seniors, get your coffee and enjoy Madagascar with me today.

Madagascar is located some 250 miles (400 km) off the southeast coast of Africa. Madagascar’s population is primarily related not to African peoples but rather to those of Indonesia, more than 3,000 miles to the east.


The Malagasy peoples, moreover, do not consider themselves to be Africans, but, because of the continuing bond with France that resulted from former colonial rule, the island developed political, economic, and cultural links with the French-speaking countries of western Africa. The local currency is called ariary (3186.75  to a dollar). Have fun with that one.

Madagascar is home to thousands of animal species – like lemurs – found nowhere else, plus rain-forests, beaches and reefs. Near the busy capital, Antananarivo, is Ambohimanga, a hillside complex of royal palaces and burial grounds, as well as the “Avenue of the Baobabs,” a dirt road lined by awesome massive centuries-old trees.

 Seniors Fascinated By Uniqueness Of The Island


The island is a land like no other in that there are so many species that are only indigenous to the island. This island, roughly the size of Texas or France, is home to more than 250,000 species of which 70% are found nowhere else on the globe.

Madagascar’s long isolation from the neighboring continents has resulted in this unique mix of plants and animals. This has led some ecologists to refer to Madagascar as the “eighth continent”. Of the 10,000 plants native to Madagascar, 90% are found nowhere else in the world. Madagascar’s varied fauna and flora are endangered by human activity, as a third of its native vegetation has disappeared since the 1970s.

Lonely Planet notes: lemurs, baobabs, rainforest, desert, trekking and diving…Madagascar is a dream destination for outdoor lovers. The remarkable fauna and flora is matched by epic landscapes of an incredible diversity: you can go from rainforest to desert in just 300km.


Seniors Enjoy Kaleidoscope Of Nature And Culture

Few places on Earth offer such an intense kaleidoscope of nature. There are sandstone canyons, limestone karsts, mountains, fertile hills cascading with terraced rice paddies, forests of every kind – rain, dry, spiny – and a laterite-rich soil that gave the country its nickname of ‘Red Island’.

Wikipedia notes that the first people arrived in Madagascar between 350 BC and 550 AD from Borneo on outrigger canoes. These Austronesian first settlers were joined around 1000 AD by Bantu migrants crossing the Mozambique Channel.


Other groups such as Arabs, Indians, and Chinese continued to settle on Madagascar over time, each one making lasting contributions to Malagasy cultural life. The Malagasy way of thinking includes a mixture of cultures, as well as their appearance and fashion style.

This island is on my personal “travel bucket list,” and I hope that you put it on yours as well. Who knows, maybe you will run into me there too. Enjoy your visit. -jeb


Seniors Seek Fun Time in Forestville


Forestville’s (pop. 3,300+) unofficial motto is “Forestville, The Good Life. Senior travelers will find “Forestville in the coastal section of northern California in the heart of Sonoma County. It is a quiet little community half an hour from the Pacific coast and about an hour north of San Francisco.

In the Russian River Valley, Forestville is an area well known to wine lovers for the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines that are produced from grapes grown among the rolling hills of the area. A bit more spread out than other parts of Sonoma County, Forestville rewards the intrepid traveler with scenic vistas and small roads worth discovering.


Senior visitors are taken aback by its picturesque valleys laden with roaming vineyards. However, the town is more than a gateway to the Russian River, it is a diverse array of businesses, wineries, farming, and recreation.

Senior Travelers Enjoy Scenic Valleys And Vineyards

The history of Forestville began back in 1834 when Captain Juan Bautista Rogers Cooper bought a land grant from his brother-in-law, General Vallejo. Forestville has since remained a quaint California town with scenic valleys, vineyards, businesses. The major road through town, Highway 116, is also called Front Street for the length of the town, a distance of about three blocks.


The town came into existence during the late 1860s. By 1900, the community was known for attracting writers and artists and had a bohemian reputation.

Surrounded by gently rolling hills, stately redwoods, lush vineyards, and the majestic Russian River as it winds its way to the Pacific Ocean, Forestville maintains its rural character and scenic beauty.

TripAdvisor suggests seniors visit the vineyards of the area and take a canoe trip on the Russian River. Winding its way across the heart of Sonoma Wine Country, the famed Russian River offers a wide variety of outdoor opportunities.

Seniors Enjoy Art Galleries, Wineries And Mom’s Beach
