Golden Gate Bridge
It may not seem as if visiting a bridge would be that exciting. However, the people who agree with that misconception are usually the ones who have not seen or driven across the Golden Gate Bridge. The team who built the bridge first broke ground in January of 1933 after an overflow of setbacks and hurdles.
The two primary cables on the bridge are the visual highlights of this masterpiece – especially since they are more than 7,650 feet long and help more than 27,500 parallel wires stay connected. Remember that you will need to park at the Northeast Side Parking Lot if you are interested in walking across the bridge. Otherwise, you can enjoy the scenic drive across and then head for the Golden Gate Trailer Park or Marin Park for overnight accommodations.

Death Valley Super Bloom
The name “Death Valley” is truly fitting for this area in California most of them. However, there is a “super bloom” that occurs at least once every decade when a beautiful shower of pink, purple, and yellow wildflowers seemingly emerge out of nowhere. A photograph does not do this marvel any justice; it must be experienced firsthand. During your years of retirement, you can make plans to see it for yourself and enjoy the ambiance of the mountainscape.
You can camp within the Death Valley National Park or even the Furnace Creek Campground for a cozy and comfortable place to spend the night.

Las Vegas Strip
Nearly 500,000 people travel to the Crater Lake National Park annually.

However, the main attraction is Crater Lake – the deepest lake in the U.S. You can also get a good look at Phantom Ship, an ancient rock formation in the middle of the lake that stands 170 feet above the water.
