Seniors' needs and desires when traveling are different than those of the younger generation or families. Pristine Agency, a wholesale travel provider in Henderson, Nevada, created the following list of "senior-friendly destinations."
Alaska is perfect for any age as long as it is by cruise or train tour. Alaska is on most people's "bucket list" for good reason. The scenery is breathtaking and like no other place on earth.
Sedona, Arizona features great lodging choices, 5-star restaurants and beautiful scenery. The Grand Canyon is only a two-hour tour bus trip away.
Branson, Missouri is great for active seniors who are able to take in the local museums, night life, shopping and golf. It's affordable and less hectic than other choices, making it a comfortable fit for most seniors.
Santa Barbara is home to the only 5-Diamond bed and breakfast in North America, and is considered a relaxing vacation with its beaches, fine dining and nearby wineries.
Ireland offers travel from village to village by horse-drawn caravan with stops for local shopping. Visiting the beer pubs and chatting with the friendly town people make Ireland a favorite for seniors – especially for those with Irish ancestry.
Hawaii (the Big Island) is the largest island so it's less crowded and more upscale then others. This is where the rich and famous live, and it is known for its active volcanoes.
Florida is known as one of the best retirement choices in the U.S. It's warm, sunny and the people are friendly, the seafood is abundant and seniors can enjoy miles of peaceful beaches.
Green Valley is in the southern portion of Arizona and highly recommended as a senior travel destination. The town was originally built for retirees and has everything an active adult could need. Golfing, Native American arts, restaurants and boutiques keep visitors busy all day.
