Full of Fun: Myrtle Beach

There's a reason why Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is something of a mecca for seniors looking for a fantastic beach destination. There are scores of beaches and senior-friendly activities to enjoy. There are over two hundred vacation homes available in Myrtle Beach right now, from houses and condos to villas and cottages. So, cheap senior trips are very easy to book. Many of them are on waterfront property, so the beach is just a few footsteps away. Be sure to stop by the Senior Citizen Center, which offers arts and crafts, yoga, manicures, pedicures, massages, entertainment, and dancing.

Plan Your Great Escape... to the Caribbean

If you're looking for a beach vacation that's a little more exotic than South Carolina, many seniors swear by the Virgin Islands, especially St. Thomas. The white-sanded beaches and crystal clear water are unparalleled in their beauty. If a private beach is what you're after, take a gander at the resort options we have in the area. Hop aboard a boat for a guided tour of the area. There's also plenty of golf, tennis, horseback riding, fishing, whale watching, eco-tours, casinos, scuba diving, snorkeling, and spas to truly unwind in this fantastic getaway.

Get a CityPass

If these cheap senior trips seem too cliché for your tastes, there are plenty of other options. A great way to see big cities with a discount, as well as a clear itinerary of things to do, is to get a CityPass. Never been to New York? Now's the time! Get a CityPass and you'll have access to the city's top tourist landmarks. For just $80, you'll be able to visit the Empire State Building observatory, the American Museum of Natural History & Rose Center, the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Cloisters, a Circle Line Sightseeing Cruise or the Statue Liberty! Enjoy it all from a fantastic high-rise suite and live like a rich executive for cheap.

Choose Vacation Rentals Over Hotels

One thing's for sure: you deserve better than a hotel. While you're enjoying the trip of a lifetime, why bother with the stress of booking a hotel? It's hard to relax in those cramped, uncomfortable rooms, and it can often be hard to get a good night's rest when you've got a noisy neighbor keeping you up all night thanks to the paper-thin walls separating the rooms. You'd also be relying on whatever the hotel offers for room service and continental breakfasts, and whatever fast food options are close by, for your sustenance. It's nearly impossible to relax in a building filled with stressed-out travelers.

Fortunately, there's a much better option: vacation homes. Instead of spending your vacation in a cold, impersonal hotel room, you can relax in an actual home to call your own for your vacation. Cook whatever meals you'd like from the comfort of a fully loaded kitchen. Lounge about in a living room instead of the hotel lobby. If you're traveling with a spouse or a group, you can enjoy the comfort, space, and privacy of your own room. Live like a local in the best tourist destinations in the world.

These are just a few ideas for getting the most out of your traveling experience in your golden years. Take a look around and see what sparks your fancy. Your best vacation yet is just a click away.
