6 PLACES TO GO FOR YOUR 60th BIRTHDAY
Planning a 60th birthday celebration but aren’t sure where to begin? Traveling is always a good idea!
You may like the thought of seeing the world to ring in a new decade of life but choosing a destination and booking an entire trip is another matter entirely.
Need some suggestions for the perfect places to plan your 60th birthday adventure? Below, we’ve included six great spots that are ideal settings for celebrating your milestone birthday.
Let the fun begin!
1. Greek Isles
How about a holiday in the Grecian sun? If the movie Mamma Mia seems like a fantasy world you only wish you could visit, it may be time to plan a trip of your own to the Greek Isles! Santorini, Mykonos, Crete... all of them are beautiful, and all of them are affordable. You can dine on Mediterranean delights, walk white-washed streets set against a backdrop of sapphire blue Aegean Sea, pick bougainvillea from bush after bush with fresh blooms, and yes--party all night long. If you want to welcome in your 60th year in a beautiful location where you can both unwind and enjoy the best life has to offer, the Greek Isles are the perfect place for you.
2. Las Vegas
Las Vegas might as well be known as Party Central. Don’t think that just because you’re celebrating your 60th birthday, you’re too old to live it up in Sin City! Vegas is the place many people head to when they want to have a good time. If a wild celebration is what you have in mind for your birthday trip, then the Vegas Strip is perfect for your 60th. Casinos, jaw-dropping performances, and staying out way too late--sure, you’re turning 60, but don’t forget that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
Who wouldn’t want to celebrate a milestone birthday in dreamy Paris, France? Paris isn’t just the city for lovers and romance--you can have a wonderful birthday celebration there, too. Whether you travel there alone, with friends and family, or with a special someone, Paris can provide the perfect backdrop as you kick off your sexagenarian decade. Have you always dreamed of visiting Paris? For many people, Paris is the very top bucket list item, a place they’ve always wanted to go. If that’s the case for you, what are you waiting for? Turning 60 is the perfect excuse to finally take that trip and see all the things you’ve wanted to see. Eiffel Tower, here you come!
4. Caribbean Islands
Why not make your 60th birthday a time to kick back, relax, and reflect on both the wonderful life you’ve led so far and the promise of more fun years to come? Jetting off to the Caribbean islands is the perfect way to unwind and let loose for a well- deserved birthday bonanza. Go ahead, have a rum punch or two--and make sure you spend plenty of time enjoying the sparkling beaches, clear waters, and swaying palm trees. You’re in the tropics now!
5. Napa Valley
There’s something about California wine regions that beckons to refined tastes like yours. If you love sprawling natural scenery, authentic farm-to-table style eats, and a good glass of vino, why not head to Napa Valley for your 60th birthday? It’s a great place to celebrate with friends, so plan your trip in advance and rope all your loved ones into joining you for a birthday celebration among the grapes. Remember: like a fine wine, you too only get better with age.
6. Go on a Grand Adventure
Where’s the one place you’ve always wanted to see? You know, that country that pops into your head when you read the previous sentence? Wherever it may happen to be--the markets of India, the green hills of Peru’s Machu Picchu, a jungle journey in Thailand, a trek through Alaskan ice--your 60th is the perfect excuse to finally book that trip you’ve always wanted to take. There’s no time like the present, let’s start putting together the 60th birthday celebration of a lifetime today.
