Retirement vacations need planning

Congrats! You’ve reached retirement.

Now you can finally enjoy more time to travel and do what you’ve always wanted to do.

But before you get too excited, Help You Retire has some great pointers on retirement trips and the best places to visit.

There are plenty of places to visit after you retire. But keep in mind that you probably have a bit less income than before. And you probably have a bit more time than when you were working your job. So there are a few things to consider when planning your vacation.

The destinations we've selected are the best bang for your buck, and very friendly to the retirement community. So pack those bags and let’s take a look at your new retirement vacation destination goals.

Fairbanks, Alaska

Fairbanks, Alaska is one of the most affordable cities in America for retirees. Specifically, many people look to move to Fairbanks for retirement. So it’s no wonder that their community embraces retirees and provides plenty of local activities as well as outdoor excursions.

Lanai, Hawaii

Most people think of Hawaii when planning a vacation on the beach. However, Lanai is a great spot because very few traditional tourists visit this little island while in Hawaii. From gorgeous golf courses to stunning sunsets, this is one to put at the top of your list.
