Many seniors are traveling to see the world. Particularly if you are fortunate enough to be retired or semi-retired, you can travel at a more relaxed pace and stay longer in your favorite destinations to get a full experience.

If you’re ready to pack your bags for a new adventure, here are some top travel destinations that are perfect for mature travelers.

1. Western U.S. national parks – The west is known for its magnificent scenery, but it can take longer than an average working person’s week-long vacation to see it all. These parks offer activities for every skill level. Travel Channel suggests taking a road trip to explore Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park including the Upper Geyser Basin, and ending with the Grand Teton National Park.

2. Big Sur, California – This magical destination is located on California’s rugged central coasts with awe-inspiring beauty in every direction. A road trip is by far the best way to experience this area, winding down the famous Highway 1 from Carmel to San Simeon. Smart Travel Tips says to take time to stop along the way for photo opportunities and to experience any number of charming coastal inns and restaurants with ocean views.

3. Central Europe river cruises CBS News says luxury river cruises are gaining popularity among retirees because, just like any other cruise, you can see several destinations at once. The most popular river cruise ships wind their way through charming European villages along the Danube and the Rhine rivers, serving guests local wine, beer, and upscale cuisine.

4. Sante Fe, New Mexico – This city is one for culture and art buffs because, as Smart Travel Tips notes, it has possibly the highest concentration of art galleries and museums in the U.S., and they are either within a reasonable walking distance or short drive from the town square. The rich cultural history means great local cuisine too, all with a mild climate perfect for seniors.

5. Williamsburg, Virginia – With attractions to suit any budget and any activity level, this historic city offers plenty of golf, museums, and shopping. It is even a better value in the off-season says CBS News and there are plenty of senior discounts offered.
