Best Vacations for Boomers: Choose Your Style (Guest Post)

You have finally reached the time in your life when you can forget about the stress and hassle of daily work and take some time to enjoy the money you have worked so hard to earn. With your newly found free time, why not take a romantic vacation with your partner, see your favorite works of art in person, or stimulate your mind with the wonders of the world? Everyone loves vacations, but not everyone desires the same things. Below are the top rated Boomer Vacations that are sure to please no matter your personality and style.

Romantic Couples Are you ready for laid back romantic vacation away from the hustle and bustle of the commercial resorts? Consider a trip to Coastal Maine. Visit one of the many Bed and Breakfasts situated along the coastline and receive top notch hospitality like none you’ve experienced before. Get up early and take an easy stroll up Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, where you can see the sun rise before anyone else in the United States. Then during the day take a walk along one of the many beaches in the park, some of which are made of amazingly smooth pebble which click together like chimes as the waves roll by. Once you work up an appetite, be sure to stop at one of the Lobster shacks (locally called lobster “Pounds”) along the coastline for the freshest and most delicious lobster you will ever eat.

Stimulate My Mind For those of you who enjoy fine art, nothing could be more stimulating that a visit to the Louvre Museum in France. You can view Near Eastern Antiquities, Egyptian Antiquities, Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities, Islamic Art, Sculptures, Decorative Arts, Paintings, Prints and Drawings. Even the building and architecture of this museum are a work of art. Sign up for a tour and learn the history behind some of the most famous works of art throughout history. Don’t plan to see it all in a day though. Even if you spent only 20 seconds at each exhibit it would take you two full days to tour the entire facility!

Return to the 60’s Let your hair down and twirl that sun dress as you listen to everything from traditional bluegrass and blues, reggae, jam band rock, and reggae. At

Shakori Hills you will have 4 days of music, sun, art, and happiness set back in the beautiful countryside of North Carolina. Three stages provide music for all tastes, day and night. Set up camp and wander through the campsites to enjoy all night jam sessions with the friendliest people you will ever meet. A variety of talented cooks sell their culinary fares throughout the festival, everything from delicious vegetarian wraps to smoky Barbequed Pork. So if you’re ready for a blast from the past…plan to camp the weekend and have it surely be a vacation to remember.

Singles Adventure Take the guess work out of adding a bit of romance to your vacation. Try one of the many luxury cruises or vacations that are designed specifically for senior singles! There are hundreds of them available online, everything from African Safari’s to Alaskan Cruises. (PS. Don’t forget your Viagra because there will be as much adventure at night as there is during the day!)

Peak of Fitness For those of you who want to push your body to the limit, there are some amazing travel destinations that will give you the challenge you need to get your heart pounding and the adrenaline flowing. Try heading up to the Blue Ridge Parkway in NC to do some hiking and discover hidden waterfalls, breathtaking cliffs, and the beautiful autumn leaves. For the more adventurous, head to one of the many river rapids and enjoy a whitewater rafting adventure. For those of you out west, there are plenty of great ways to hike the Grand Canyon for a second to none experience.

Which ever vacation you choose, make the most of it and enjoy it! These are the greatest years of your life!
