Lava Beads National Monument in Northern California

Off the beaten path and away from the madding crowds, Lava Beads National Monument is the place to visit for seniors wanting to experience nature in its fullest. The monument is known for its amazing diversity in flora and fauna and is home to one of the few volcanoes in the U.S. that are open to tourists. Apart from these, you can get a panoramic view of the park standing on top of the hill that is part of the monument. There are senior citizen discount passes available for those over 62. 

Palm Springs –Southern California

Once known as a playground for the rich and the famous, Palm Springs resort in Southern California offers visitors and seniors, in particular, a place to unwind and relax. The resort has swimming pools and a coffee bar called Kofi where you can sip your drink and watch life pass by. Further, there is a Walk of the Stars that runs across Palm Canyon, where you can star gaze to your heart’s content as you walk down the corridor. Seniors can benefit from the seasonal discount.

Death Valley National Park


If you want the romantic coziness and serene ambiance that senior tourists prefer, this is the place for you. There are activities like bird watching, hiking and camping available here--apart from the Furnace Creek Cabins where you can stay overnight.  February is the best time to visit this place and you can also play golf at the course that offers an excellent gaming infrastructure. You can listen to ghost stories around the campfire in the night or sing away the blues with the rest.

Trinity National Forest

For the adventurous seniors, this is the place to visit as the accommodation here is mostly a campground and the road leading up to this place is one of the most exciting ones that you would ever take. The forest is especially good to visit in the summer and seniors get special privileges.
