Loving Life after 50

10 Great Vacation Spots

It is January, it is cold, there is a ton of snow and I am totally over winter so on this lovely Friday
( lovely only because it is friday) I am going photo happy on you. Hopefully you will forgive me because I am going to take you on a trip, around the globe or at least this side of it for 10 of my favourite vacation spots
1) Cruising to Cozumel, Honduras, Belize and Grand Cayman ( plus a stay in Miami) I am going to rank this number one because it was my first cruise ( longer than a day) and it was my 50th Birthday and all of the places were amazing. This is Grand Cayman

2) Cancun-, great place for a  family vacation and the beach was spectacular. Trip to a cenote and Chitzen Itza  must be on the agenda

3) Memphis for the Autozone Liberty Bowl and New Year’s Eve.  I love Memphis, the people, the food, the music, Beale Street, seriously what is not to love right?

4) Orlando ( we have been 5 times in 4 years)   rollercoaster rides,  Harry Potters World, sun, sand beach, Orlando is the perfect May vacation spot, great temps, no big crowds, amusements parks, baseball games, Cocoa Beach…


Islands of Adventure
5) Pocono’s and Bushkill Falls, Fall in the Poconos, great golfing, Outlet shopping, Antique Stores, Vineyards, Microbreweries, little Casino gambling and close enough to NYC to visit and not have to stay

6) Mayan Rivieria- amazing beaches, great people awesome food and of course Tequila.

7) Vegas-  gambling, sports, drinking and people watching so what is not to love about Vegas

8) Six Flags New Jersey –  Roller Coasters and great company, even the rain could not dampen this experience, except the one ride we wanted was closed.

9) Virginia ( and the Luray Caverns) We absolutely adore Virginia, great vineyards, great shopping, amazing sites to visit and of course so much history. From Williamsburg to the Shenandoah Valley every spot  is a wonderful place to visit

10) Charlotte – a beautiul city,the architecture is spectacular, the people are wonderful and again of course great shopping ( and great sports, hockey, football, basketball, a perfect city

and special mention  Golfing at Shawnee of the Deleware –

From an outfit perspective I am doing a repeat on my Plaid Blazer from Target but this time with a plain dress pant and leopard boot. I thought I would try pairing my awesome Yosa necklace with one I received for Christmas. The colours and flowers are so similar but one is dainty and one a major statement.  I think they work together very well. This is the type of outfit I wear for work when I am freezing, tired of winter and do not want to try to hard. Easy pieces to pull out of my closet and yet tied in with a blazer it all seems to feel “pulled together”

  • Pocono's and Bushkill Falls look like it's from heaven. So beautiful!

  • First of I love that outfit. I adore that plaid suit you own and wear all the time and burgundy is a great color for Winter. I am wearing it in my current post, also.

    Secondly great recommendations for traveling. I have been to Orlando and in a few Mexican cities via some cruise traveling also. But believe it or not I have never been to Charlotte, Las Vegas or New Jersey lol.

  • All of those places look awesome to visit! I used to travel all the time, but life happened and it has become harder to travel. Sure reminds me of the fun though 🙂

  • everythin looks super! i want to go to mayana rivera and to charlotte!
