Once people fully retire, they often have more time to get away and enjoy true relaxation in a resort setting. Travel and Leisure recently noted nine locations that offer a wide range of luxury and outdoor activities.

Five are in the West: Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Washington, sits at the foot of the Cascade Mountains, offering golf and hiking, while Long Mountain Ranch in Big Sky, Montana provides 27 unique log cabins and horseback riding. For classic luxury and outstanding golf, it’s hard to beat the Arizona Biltmore, a Waldorf Astoria resort in Phoenix.

Two more are in the Golden State. Cavallo Point in Sausalito, California sits at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge with views of San Francisco, while the Rancho Bernardo Inn outside of San Diego sits among lush gardens and a top-notch golf course.

The Midwest offers two choice options: Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Missouri, in the Ozark Mountains, and Mission Point on the shores of Lake Huron in Mackinac Island, Michigan.

Down South is Montage Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina, with its Lowcountry lifestyle, and a tropical oasis at the Bungalows Key Largo in the Florida Keys.

Council of Seniors Can Preserve Benefits With Your Help

A little extra income can fund a well-earned great getaway. Here at Council of Seniors, we know the passage of The SAVE Benefits Act by Congress will help that happen. This bill is needed to recover the shortfall in the annual Social Security cost of living adjustment (COLA) over a series of years. Once passed, eligible seniors would be reimbursed $581, which is money they should have received in the past.

Please sign our petition today. Greedy politicians must see how many people support this bill – so we must collect as many Americans’ signatures as possible.
