The travel experts at Cheapflights.ca, the champions of simple travel search, suggest you embrace the freedom and encourage you to see the world. Need some help deciding where to go? The team has interviewed recent empty nesters to come up with their Top 10 Dream Getaways for the New Empty Nester. Not yet an empty nester? You can still get inspiration with these bucket list-worthy destinations and start dreaming, and even planning, ahead.
With the kids gone and more time on your hands, it's the perfect opportunity to plan and finally take your dream vacation. Here are five destinations from our list to help inspire you to take the leap:
- Taormina, Sicily, Italy - As soon as you arrive in the
hillside town of Taormina, you'll feel the magical, mythical
atmosphere that has enchanted visitors for generations. Surrounded
by two spectacular bays, with the often-snowcapped Mount Etna as a
backdrop, it's the perfect place to hang out and live like a local.
Learn the art of true Italian cooking, make friends with the town's
merchants, learn the language and enjoy life as only the Italians
- Las Vegas, Nevada, United States - With world-class
accommodations, dining options, spas and shows, Las Vegas is the
perfect place for empty nesters to celebrate their new freedom and
perhaps win back some of that college tuition money at the
blackjack table! Take in a performance of Cirque du Soleil, nosh on
exceptional cuisine from award-winning chefs and explore the
intoxicating combination of luxury and kitsch for which Vegas has
become known. Or use this opportunity to revel in your new
empty-nester status with margaritas by the pool followed by a night
of adult fun on the Strip. (If anyone asks, it's Vegas and you're
not obligated to divulge what happens there!) If the bright lights
of Sin City aren't quite your speed, consider a stay in nearby
Henderson, where you can pair poolside relaxation with desert
- Berkshire, England - Home to "Downton Abbey" and the
post-wedding wind-down destination for George Clooney and Amal
Alamuddin, Berkshire County is also the location of Windsor Castle
and lots of brilliant 17th century architecture. For opulent
accommodations fit for royalty, check out the historical Clivenden
House complete with a Michelin-starred restaurant from Chef
André Garrett. It's hosted every British monarch since
George I, so the staff is accustomed to providing the full royal
- Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada - Set out on one of
the most stunning road trips in the world, along the 232-kilometre
Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper. Whether you choose to
travel by car, bus, train, bike or foot, this trip of a lifetime
takes you through incredible mountainous scenery, where you pass
waterfalls (frozen in winter), blue lakes and rambling streams.
And, with wildlife galore including grizzly bears, black bears,
bighorn sheep, elk, eagles, moose, caribou, wolves and maybe even a
cougar, there's plenty to see along the way.
- Cape Town, South Africa - With more time and a less
jam-packed schedule, there is no reason not to pull out all the
stops when it comes to planning a getaway. South Africa is a
bucket-list destination for many -- and with good reason. Indulge
in freshly caught seafood, wine taste your way through the Cape
Winelands, take in the breathtaking views from Table Mountain and
immerse yourself in the local culture. With endless opportunities
for recreation and relaxation, a South African getaway is such a
memorable experience, you'll (almost) wish you brought the whole
