Whether for business, vacation, or retirement, being single and a senior who wants to travel means that you are secure in your thinking, strong in your beliefs and you are looking to travel and expand your knowledge. You might want to be independent and want only to travel as a single senior and sort of do it yourself and not be bothered with others.
Some people want this independence and others seek friendships and some go beyond that and start dating. What ever the reason you, as an individual, have, there is much to see traveling and exploring this great country of ours.
“America The Beautiful”
You can travel through tours, planes or trains or you can drive if it suits you. It is your choice. I will try and point out what I find as the best places to see and visit for your enjoyment.
This is going to be lengthy as I go from state to state so I will begin with the New England states first. This will be the first article of many.
New England States are listed as, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. I am from New England, Massachusetts, in particular, and so I will start with our beautiful City of Boston, Massachusetts.
Boston is known as, The Gateway City and people come from all over to visit and attend our colleges which are the best in the world.
Here in New England we have four seasons and that’s important to a traveler. Our seasons are: Summer/June-August, Fall/September-November, Winter/November-March, and Spring/April-June. The seasons mean different things to different people. Especially in Boston. One of the main reasons is sports, and Boston is a big sports town! Spring is the beginning of baseball and Fall is the beginning of football. A few other reasons for loving the four seasons are Spring flowers, Summer beaches, Fall’s beauty, when leaves turn to color, and Winter skiing. This is only the tip of the iceberg.
In Boston, the Art museums are a great place to start if you are a lover of the arts. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has 5,000 works of art from across the Americas, and, according to Wikipedia, they enjoy over 1 million visitors each year. They have French and Egyptian art and these works will be remembered in your memory for many years to come. It is well worth the trip.
Harvard in Boston has three museums and are titled, “Institute of Contemporary Art.” Very nice and enjoyable. People tend to spend a lot of time in these museums. If you are a senior and like to paint, this is something to see, bring your tablet and sketch awhile.
In Boston, the single senior travelers who love great food will especially enjoy traveling to Boston to sample some of the greatest foods in the world.
I will say adios for now, but stay tuned for the next article which will be more about the restaurants of Boston.
