My family will travel to St. George Island, Florida. We had reserved a house last year for July, but were unable to go because we learned in May that my husband's cancer had spread and he only had about a month to live. He was able to stay home with Hospice Care. (He died June 28th) Of course, had to cancel the trip. Rental agent was able to re-rent house, so we didn't lose our deposit. They have sent messages throughout the year, just checking on us. When I discovered this same house was available for the week of June 19-26, I just jumped on it. Everyone was able to get that week off. This will be a respite from all the stress of "firsts" leading up to the 28th. Will use rewards points for food and such. It won't be the same without him, but I am thankful we will be able to make this trip and share memories, love, and laughter.

We just did our trip. We live in Evergreen CO and we did a road trip to Grand Junction and saw Monument National Park, then to Moab UT and saw Canyonland, Dead Horse State Park and then Arches National Park. Next was the Grand Canyon- Sourh Rim, Telluride CO and took the Million Dollar Highway to Pagosa Springs. Out last stretch was The Great Sand Dunes and Salida. Beautiful trip. We used our AARP ever where we could.

Hooray!  The world is finally opening up!  We have a wonderful house, I certainly can't complain, but it's beginning to feel like a luxury prison.  And the wonderful world is just out the front door.

    I want to go to Ashland, OR, for the Shakespeare festival, and then to the rugged Oregon coast.  I will use AARP points for lodging discounts, and use AARP for sights to see along the way.  I"m already packed.

I will take a trip to Greece including the island of Santorini. I’ve wanted to go but obviously COVID hampered the opportunity. I plan to purchase updated luggage and day bags with security features that will offer me extra protection. AARP is the perfect resource for travel plans, insurance and luggage.

After a year long struggle with a misdiagnosed knee injury finally resulting in a partial knee replacement, I had promised myself a much needed vacation. We all knoiw what hapened. Now that there is a reopening happening I checked out two  books from my library about rail trips. My plan is to take a train ride across the country and back, perhaps staying for awhile in the various cities along the way.

Looking forward to being able to CONVENIENTLY cross the US/Canada border again. Toronto has wonderful restaurants, museums and parks my husband and I enjoyed on our honeymoon TWENTY YEARS ago. Niagara Falls on their side is far less commercial than the corresponding city on our side, as well. AARP discounts will help with many expenses of the trip(s).

Same here! We stayed at the Westin Harbour Castle. Such an amazing time. Having that exchange rate 25 years ago was pretty amazing too! I miss China Town and all of the great little outdoor shops there. Eaton Center was a blast too. Have fun!!!

My husband and I plan to drive to Washington DC to see the great museums. Despite the rise in divided-ness and hate crimes we still love our country and decided to see more of it rather than go overseas. We're fortunate to have AARP Rewards to access for discounts on lodging and some store gift cards to buy "stuff" we need for the trip. Thank you for being there for us!

My wife and I our planning a trip to Denver to see our sons new house. He bought after a promotion and move from Boyton Beach, Florida during the start of the pandemic 2 years ago. We had this planned when he moved but I contracted Co-Vid the passed it on to wife. She got it so bad she ended up in the hospital. Yes we had both been fully vaccinated and even had the 1st booster. We are alive and God is Great 🙂
