Ideas for vacationing while the weather is nice

The weather in Florida right now can’t be beaten. Our northern neighbors have been envying us all winter, but it will soon get hot again and unbearable to be outside. That’s why we think now is a great time to enjoy all the outdoors has to offer and take a small vacation. As Floridians, we have lots of travel options to choose from between beachside hotels and Disney World to golf retreats and more. With the help of our Approved Vendors, we have a few ideas up our sleeves. Go anywhere with Giant Recreation World RV travel exploded this year as people wanted the freedom to travel without worrying about flights and hotels.

Binge-Watching Netflix and its Astonishing Effects on Your Body

A few days ago, our team at OurSeniors.net briefly spoke about the effects self-isolation has on the body. Today we are taking a deeper dive into how staying indoors and binge-watching Netflix affects the health of a senior. Netflix, Hulu, and all the streaming apps on the market have changed the way America watches TV.

A Staycation is a Great Travel Option for Seniors

A Staycation is a Great Travel Option for Seniors

Air travel is extremely risky for the spread of COVID-19 as airplanes are notoriously known for being filled with germs, improperly cleaned and having recycled air throughout the cabin. Unnecessary travel is not recommended especially for those who are older and higher risk. If you have the travel itch, a staycation is the best option. Beautiful beaches are within driving distance in Florida making it easy to get away for a few days. There nothing better than the feeling of the Florida sun on your skin while taking a dip in the ocean and listening to the crashing of the waves. A great, budget-friendly hotel option we recommend is Sun Viking Lodge in Daytona Beach. The hotel is right on the beach and has plenty of activities for the family to enjoy like beach volleyball, pools, corn hole, shuffleboard and many others.
