If you were wondering what are this year’s Top 5 Places to Visit for Seniors…Stop and wonder no more. Here is a list of senior-friendly destinations based on price, accessibility, weather, and tours.
Niagara Falls, NY.
Away from the fast pace and lights of New York City, we can find the Niagara Falls. Three waterfalls meet and create the highest flow rate waterfall in the world. Book a flight to the Buffalo Airport (BUF), and you are just half an hour away from the falls. If there’s time, pay a visit to our Canadians neighbors in Ontario. My parents in law did this trip in 2018, and said it was “much better than Walt Disney World”. Their own words.
Who hasn’t thought about visiting Italy? Take advantage of your retiree status and visit Italy during the Spring, Fall, and even Winter to avoid the summer crowds. Do not forget to book tours and accommodations in advance, and a pasta or gelato making class.
My best friends visited Italy on their honeymoon in December 2018, and couldn’t stop raving about their trip. Especially, the cities of Florence and Rome. Don’t skip them!
You won’t need a passport for this one! Enjoy the Caribbean, good food, and friendly people in Puerto Rico. There are places to stay for every budget and lots of things to do. Rainforest? Check. Ziplining? Check. Beaches? Check. Plan to decide to which airport you will arrive. Choose San Juan (SJU) if exploring museums, forts, and Spanish architecture is your thing. However, if caves and beautiful landscapes sound more like you, consider the Aguadilla (BQN) airport instead.
Sedona has become one of the new “it” places to visit. Red Rock State Park it’s full of photo opportunities at any time of the day. Its almost extraterrestrial looking landscape has been attracting more and more visitors every year, and you should go before it becomes a major attraction full of tourists. As you can imagine, Spring and Fall are the best months for a visit, away from the scorching heat.
I bet you have heard a lot about Reykjavik lately. But what about Akureyri? This small town in the north of Iceland has some of the best food on the island. During the winter or early spring, its mountains covered in snow will make you feel inside the set of a movie, with northern lights included. Take a flight or a bus from Reykjavik, or drive four hours and a half to get there, it’s completely worth it.
Tip: Visit the Myvatn Natural Baths, in our humble opinion they are better than the Blue Lagoon.
