For many Americans, it seems that retirement is becoming “retirement.”
Traditional notions of this part of life are evolving. A study done by Merrill Lynch indicated that almost half of retirees are working or plan on working during retirement. And of those over 50 who haven’t retired yet? A striking 72% say they actually want to keep working after they officially “retire.”
While retirees are more open to the idea of keeping work as a part of their lives, they are more committed than ever to making the most of their retirement years. A study by AARP Travel indicated that an astounding 99% of Baby Boomers planned to travel this year.
In order to balance this desire to work and to travel, Vantage offers those enjoying a “soft retirement” (as it is being called) a choice of shorter yet experience-filled trips designed with them in mind. Here are some Adventures of 10 days or less that our travelers are currently excited about:
