Las Vegas

Las Vegas in the fall? Does that mean you can watch your green money shiver and fall like autumn leaves? Well, yes, but Sin City is not just for gambling and sinning. If you take time on the famous Strip to look at the mobs going by, you'll see that at least half of them are in the autumn of their years, 50s plus on up to 80s.

Iwo memorial

With the 64th anniversary of the end of WWII on September 2, many seniors may want to relive some of their memories of that historic era. Here are some sites worth visiting this autumn:

The mighty Navy aircraft carrier, USS Midway (CVB41), is permanently anchored at San Diego’s seaport. It was named for the critical 1942 battle in the Pacific when American forces defeated elements of the Japanese fleet around the island of Midway, and marked the turning point that led eventually to the US winning WWII. The carrier Midway had a long and distinguished career in combat and operational actions throughout the world before being retired to become a permanent museum in San Diego.

Grape vines
The Napa Valley: Enjoy autumn in the world's best (sorry France and Italy) wine country. You'll not only be treated to all kinds of great grape products, but also the spectacular autumn colors as the surrounding trees and hundreds of military-straight rows of grape vines broadcast their September and October beauty.

There are many inviting hotels and inns in the valley and nearby, and on west to the spectacular oceanside Highway One and the quaint, but very expensive and chi chi cities of Carmel and Santa Barbara. You can bike, hike or balloon-ride your way around this wonderful part of North Central California.

Beer stein

Munich, Germany, of course, is the traditional Old World home of Oktoberfest. So, if you're a fan of wurst, buxom frauleins, pretzels, native beer and oompah music, that ancient Bavarian town is for you in the fall. You can even bring along your leiderhosen and join in on the dancing, nightclubbing and general riotous beer-fueled celebration of Southern Germany’s golden season of the year. Of course, the forests and hills surrounding the town join in each autumn to make the colorful celebrations even more so, that is if you can stay sober enough to enjoy them.
