Celebrate Grandparent’s Day with a senior vacation or spa day
By Aimee Heckel
Grandparent’s Day really doesn’t get the love it deserves, especially considering the amount of love that grandparents unwaveringly spill upon their grandkids in the form of cookies, cards and general spoilage.
Give them back what they deserve for this year’s Grandparent’s Day, on Sept. 8. Send your sweet Grammy on a senior vacation.

A senior vacation can be anything from a relaxed and inexpensive day at the spa to a specially designated senior tour.
Here are some ideas for a senior vacation in honor of Grandparent’s Day:
A senior-specific day spa. As the Baby Boomers grow older, the demand for senior spa treatments continues to grow. The Willow Valley Retirement Communities in Pennsylvania have a Vitality Day Spa, featuring facials, a therapeutic salt wall and even packages for men. Check your local spas and retirement communities for more offerings.
Money-saving tip: Even at regular spas, seniors can often score a great deal by booking their services earlier in the day and on weekdays instead of weekends, when many spas tend to offer discounts.
Many people try a spa for the first time when it’s given as a gift certificate, so consider buying Grammy — or Pa — a gift card from SpaFinder. Buy a card online from $25 to $1,000, and your grandparents can redeem it at more than 20,000 spas and health facilities around the world. Save money on SpaFinder by taking advantage of these many SpaFinder coupons, and buy it through ShopAtHome.com to get an additional 4 percent Cash Back.
A senior-specific vacation. Seniortours Vacations offers a variety of escorted, worldwide tours and cruises set at a leisurely pace, but filled with plenty of entertainment, first-class dining and deluxe amenities.
Buy your grandparents a four-day September getaway to New England, to a 25-day “super deluxe” motor coach cross-country adventure across California. If your grandparents would enjoy a trip overseas, try the wine-lover’s favorite, a cruise exploration of Portugal and Spain on the Douro River, throughout the wine country.
Seniortours even offers a special “no-fly” tour of the Caribbean and Bermuda for seniors who don’t want to travel on an airplane. The cruise leaves from New York City and Baltimore. No airports required.
