What isn’t to love about Bermuda? It’s a quick getaway that feels like it’s worlds away. With sandy beaches, unique shopping, and year-round outdoor activities, there’s literally something for everyone. If you’re looking to relax, you can visit many of Bermuda’s quiet beaches; if you want to absorb some culture, head to Bermuda’s National Gallery or the Eastern Parishes. No matter what kind of trip you’re looking for, Bermuda is sure to exceed all of your retirement trip expectations!


It's easy to love London! England's capital city and cultural hub is a fantastic place to visit if you’re looking for a more modern destination after retirement. Not only is London the homeplace of the famous royals, but it also hosts incredible site-seeing opportunities, historic pubs, and cutting-edge cuisine. If you prefer to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, you can also take a day trip to the world-famous Stonehenge.


Germany offers tourists a unique mix of tradition and modernity, resulting in truly incredible experiences. Visiting Berlin offers historic sites mixed with modern art galleries. At the same time, cities like Munich have a modern twist on historical scenes. If eating great food and seeing beautiful, fairytale castles sounds appealing, then Germany is the destination for you!

Grand Canyon

What could make any retirement trip grander than the Grand Canyon itself!? This breathtaking geological landmark boasts incredible views and places to explore. With several viewpoints to take in the beautiful scenery and hiking trails that are begging to be explored, the Grand Canyon does not leave much to be desired! There are also opportunities to go horse-back riding, rafting, swimming, and so much more.


If you’re looking for a truly memorable experience, then look no further than viewing the Northern Lights in Iceland. This fascinating phenomenon can be seen incredibly well in Iceland. It is said that September through March is the best time to see them since it gets dark at 6:00 p.m. Watching the mysterious colors dancing across the sky is sure to make a lasting memory!


Panama is the perfect destination for those who are seeking some adventure! The Panama Canal amazes tourists to this day. While Panama City is steeped in history (you can even visit the Old Panama City ruins near present-day Panama City), it also boasts modern skyscrapers, casinos, and shopping centers. Panama has jungles waiting to be explored, beautiful beaches, and islands fringed with coral reefs. This beautiful destination is perfect for anyone who is looking for a little adventure to add to their retirement!


Peru’s Machu Picchu is a destination that you should visit at least once in your lifetime! Not only is the ancient Inca architecture incredible, but the spectacular views will take your breath away. It wasn’t named one of the seven Wonders of the World in 2007 for nothing. Machu Picchu and the surrounding areas are great places to soak up Peru's rich culture. Come and see this treasure for yourself!

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Santa Fe, New Mexico, has an art scene like no other. The colorful city is rich in history, art, and culture. If you enjoy operas, symphonies, or theater, then Santa Fe is a must-visit! There are gallery openings, poetry readings, music festivals, and art-based entertainment everywhere you go. If you’re looking to experience more artistic culture, then you absolutely have to visit Santa Fe!


From Barcelona to Madrid, Spain is a country that is full of life and things to see. From quaint villages surrounded by vineyards to cutting-edge art galleries, Spain truly has something for everyone! The lifestyle in Spain is truly something to experience. Spanish people believe in living life to the fullest and enjoying all of life’s simple pleasures. Now that sounds like a great mindset to kick off retirement with!
