Retirement is a new chapter in life and a great point at which to begin your adventures. Traveling both near and far during retirement has great benefits for your mental and physical health, as well as your relationships with others. When your travels bring you to the Maritimes, stay with Coastal Inns, we have the staff and space to make your stay a comfortable and informative one!
From strolling through the airport to walking along the river as you window shop to hiking through beautifully treed trails, vacations almost always encourage people to stay active. Traveling is a fun and easy way to keep yourself moving while exploring the big world around you!
Whether you’re traveling with friends and family or meeting new people along the way, vacations always encourage people to stay social. Immersing yourself in new cultures, or just new cities, you will be involving yourself in activities, eating at restaurants and coming across store staff who will encourage new conversation. It’s a great way to keep your mind fresh, especially when retirement often lessens your social life.
At Coastal Inns, we pride ourselves in having social, helpful staff who are willing to stop and chat with you at any point during the day. Our staff live in the area and, therefore, know the great spots and hidden gems in every location. To them, you are friends and they’d love to be social with you!
Speaking of the mind, traveling has many cognitive benefits. A blog on money.usnews.com states that “Travelers who search out different environments are exposed to unfamiliar cultures, which stretches their imaginations and forces them to puzzle out new problems”. Being able to do all of this not only gives those in retirement the chance to create new memories, but it also increases their confidence when they are able to solve problems and navigate a new area.
It has been proven that traveling can improve a person’s mood and lower stress, which lessen the chance of depression. Specifically, men who take annual vacations are 32% less likely to die from heart disease. These are just a few of the known health benefits to travel, but if something so fun can also be good for your body and mind, why not try it?
STAY MONEY SMART
Travel doesn’t have to be expensive. By taking advantage of off-peak, last minute travel prices, you can usually get a great deal no matter where you want to go. If peak seasons are more your style, try traveling close to home and exploring the beautiful sights in your own corner of the world.
When you book direct with Coastal Inns, we will do everything in our power to get you the best deal possible. We know that people travel on a budget and we want to offer you a great place to stay without charging a “great” cost.
Coastal Inns is proud to be your home away from home while you explore the Maritimes, whether in the fishing town of Digby, the hub of Moncton, or any other of our six locations. Retirement isn’t the time to stop living, it’s just another chapter to enjoy and explore. So, get out there and #TravelCoastal!
