My children and I are traveling to Pennsylvania to stay in an AirBnb Cottage, which is located next to a large creek.  I purchased a kayak for my son as a Christmas present and he's eager to get out on the water.  He's also an avid fisherman, so the location suits us perfectly.  AARP has discounted AirBnb gift cards available, which allows us to spend more vacation time together.  In addition, we're looking into the possibility of renting a car utilizing AARP's resources.  I plan on using rewards points for vacation activities, and AARP makes it possible to redeem points quickly and easily, once we've made definitive plans. I'll definitely be watching for AARP member discount/double points days at Exxon, as I linked my accounts long ago to take advantage of this valuable perk.  Overall, the discounts and resources available to me, as an AARP member, allow me to spend less money and more time doing the things I love most with my family, and we can't wait to get back on the road this summer!

I would love to rent an RV and follow our honeymoon route.  Married almost 50 years.  We visited Vermont, and Nova Scotia.   Did a circle route - absolutely a photographer delight. We also took the car ferry from Portsmouth Me to Nova Scotia.  Breathtaking.

My husband and I have been married 10 years and members of AARP all this time.  We have had very little vacation time in our marriage, except several road trips to spend with family, a lot of times just when someone dies or marries. My husband has never been on a real vacation since childhood..  I would like to have a real vacation for our anniversary to Savannah, Georgia to sightsee the architecture and history and perhaps to to Savannah Beach.

I plan on visiting my mother on the west coast. She broke her arm earlier this year and I was there to take care of her. I will go back now in the summer and spend more time with her now that she can enjoy things more and we can go on a hike in the mountains. I will use my AARP rewards to save money on dining and bring along a couple gift cards I have redeemed through AARP rewards.
