5 popular US spots to celebrate your 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, and beyond

Are you starting to plan your milestone birthday or perhaps a friend or loved one’s? I hope that some of the ideas listed and my experiences at some of the destinations will help you in your decision process. My suggestion would be to decide what your favorite activity to share with your friends would be and then work around that.

Quality time together could be lounging around a pool for hours with great conversation and very little distraction. Or trying something new and challenging for your special birthday like white water river rafting could make it memorable. The most important thing is to celebrate! Celebrate our aging process, embrace these golden years and make these the best years of our lives.

Austin/TX: this made it on the list again because I was there in September and I had such a great time! The music scene-to die for, the river walk and paddle boarding-so much fun, and the people-everyone is so friendly! Gather the girls and go have some fun in Texas.

Three day Carnival Cruise from Miami,FL: even if you are not a cruise fan this is a great way to spend quality time with friends all in one location. While some may want to relax by the pool and others would prefer activities you can always schedule when to meet up and dine together and dance the night away.

Go glamping and white water river rafting/Royal Gorge Cabins/CO : my kind of girls trip-unfortunately my friends don’t think so:). The beautiful outdoors, fun on the river and all of your friends together-a perfect milestone celebration-added bonus no makeup needed.

Las Vegas, NV: think you are too old for Vegas?-you’re not, trust me! Our bookclub has made several trips to Vegas  over the years and oh my the belly laughter, the people watching, the fabulous restaurants, the sites, the dancing. Fantastic memories! No you are definitely not too old for Vegas.

Solage Resort & Spa/Calistoga,CA: what’s not to love? You are in the Napa Valley wine country at a beautiful resort with fabulous pools and luxurious spa treatments! Another bookclub favorite, we spent the weekend here and you had to drag us away from the pool. Reserve a cabana, it’s worth it!

Enjoy and Happy Birthday!
