8 Spring Getaways for Retirees

Spring break may entice college students to assuage their winter woes with a well-timed vacation, but it’s also a popular time for retirees to get away as well. Of course, seniors and students aren’t exactly headed to the same destinations. According to Priscilla Reilly, director of public relations for Grand Circle Travel, a global travel agency headquartered in Boston, retirees seek warmer climates, but they are looking for cultural experiences as well. This means they’re more likely to spring for a trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico than hitting up the bar scene in neighboring Cancun, Mexico. “There are smaller crowds, fewer lines at sites and one can often get better prices both from the tour operators as well as locally,” Reilly says. To help seniors plan their end-of-winter vacation, MainStreet rounded up some of the best destinations for retirees. Photo Credit: Wendy Piersall
