Everyone loves a saucy, curvy 60-year-old! Whether you’re a child of the 60s ready to rock or a millennial looking for that yuletide spirit, there’s something for everyone this summer. And, hey, we’re not saying old people are uglier than new people or anything. We’re just saying that being 60 is like being a teenager all over again!
All the fun and craziness, but with a little more experience. So, whether you’re looking for an affordable and fun holiday with friends and family or you want to blow your friends’ minds with a new theme for an anniversary party, here are some ideas for a 60-year-old’s holiday.
1. Go to the beach
What could be more fun than a day at the beach? One of the best parts about being 60 is that you can spend hours at the beach without worrying about looking bad. You’re not rocking double n-e-e-d-d-s as you did in your 20s or going super old-lady in your 50s with shoulder-length hair and a cane. Instead, you’re experiencing a new kind of freedom with the ability to just be yourself. Even if you’re not one of those super confident people, you’ll still feel more comfortable in your skin. It’s a gift.
When you’re 60, you’ve got the time to really explore different beaches and visit the ones you love again. You might just discover some new ones that you love. It’s fun to think about where you’d visit if you were a teenager again. You might choose to visit a beach that you’ve always wanted to go to because it’s near a friend’s house. You might find your favourite beach and decide to stay at your buddy’s place instead of going home.
2. Go to a theme park
Everyone is wearing the same t-shirt and jeans, but you get to be the one to make everyone else buy them. How great is that? A trip to a theme park is the perfect fit for a fun, affordable 60-year-old’s holiday. You don’t need to worry about getting on a roller coaster that’s too scary or riding a ride that’s too old and out of date. Plus, your kids can go on all the same rides you used to go on as a kid.
An affordable 60-year-old’s holiday at a theme park also means you don’t have to do the whole scavenger hunt thing. All you have to do is spend a day walking around the park without your phone and enjoying each other’s company. You can even opt to spend the day eating at the park’s restaurant instead of waiting in line.
3. Go to a show
If you love to go to concerts, but you’re in your 60’s, you have an advantage. You might have gotten out of going to concerts as a teenager because you were working or other things were more important. Of course, once you’re in your 60s, you have a much better perspective on your life and you can enjoy concerts again. It’s also not uncommon for people in their 60s to be much more selective about the concerts they go to, simply because they have so much other stuff on their to-do lists!
If you love to travel, you might also want to think about going somewhere you haven’t been yet. If you love the theatre and don’t go to shows often, you might want to think about doing so more frequently. There are a lot of great shows out there that fall in the 60-year-old range, and they’d be fun to see.
4. Host a murder mystery dinner
You’ve been to all those fancy restaurants with your friends for a long time. Now it’s time to pay some of that fancy stuff back. The perfect affordable 60-year-old’s holiday gift is a murder mystery dinner. You’ll get to eat some delicious food, get dressed up (or not!) in a costume, and solve a mystery all while having a ton of fun. The best part is that it was not very expensive. You don’t have to spend hundreds of pounds on a perfect weekend getaway. You can spend a few hundred pounds on a delicious, fun, and interactive experience with your friends.
5. Serve up a barbecue
A barbecue is one of the best ways to spend an affordable 60-year-old’s holiday. A good barbecue doesn’t have to cost a fortune, either. You just need to invest in some delicious meat, a few sides, and some delicious people. You don’t need to spend hours on end preparing a delicious meal. A good barbecue is all about setting up a table, pouring a few drinks, and enjoying some quality time with the people you love.
You don’t necessarily have to do a formal barbecue. You can also do a casual one. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on food, you can also simply use leftovers and serve them up with a few drinks. It doesn’t matter how you do it so long as you take advantage of the fact that you’re 60 and get some quality time with your friends.
6. Catch some shows
You’ve been to concerts and you’ve been to plays, but you’ve never been to any kind of shows. Fear not; you don’t even have to be that good at singing or dancing to enjoy it. Pick up some tickets to a concert, a comedy show, or a play. There are a ton of options to choose from. You’re not going to have to shell out a ton of money for something that you know your friends aren’t very into. You can pick up tickets for a ton of shows for an affordable 60-year-old’s holiday price. You can also go with a crowd of friends and enjoy the show without spending too much money.
7. Go camping
There’s something about sleeping in a tent and not showering for days on end that makes you feel grown-up. It’s not a must that you do this while being 60. You can also be 60 while camping. A good camping trip is the perfect affordable 60-year-old holiday. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune, requires no effort, and is great for reconnecting with old friends. You don’t even have to go too far away. You can also choose to go somewhere you’ve never been before and unexpectedly explore nature.
A good camping trip is also a great way to be safe when you’re having a ton of fun. You don’t have to drink and drive or get into any dangerous situations. You can simply relax and enjoy some time with your friends without worrying about money or things that might stress you out.
8. Go on an adventure
You might not be able to climb mountains anymore, but you can still go on adventures. Pick up a bike, go for a hike, or go to a museum. You don’t need to do anything dangerous or expensive. You can also pick up some tickets to a nearby event that you and your friends love to attend. You don’t need to break the bank on an expensive adventure. All you have to do is pick up some tickets for what you love to do and go have some fun. You can also pick up some tickets during the day and just relax at home during the show.
An adventure is also the perfect affordable 60-year-old holiday gift. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a perfect weekend getaway. You can spend a few hundred dollars on a delicious, fun, and interactive experience with your friends. It’s not very expensive or time-consuming. You’ll have plenty of time to relax and enjoy your time with your friends. It’s the perfect gift.
9. Plan an epic meal
An affordable 60-year-old’s holiday meal is one of the best gifts you can give. A good meal doesn’t have to cost a fortune. You just need to pick up some delicious ingredients and some friends who are willing to help you cook. You don’t need to spend hours in the kitchen. A good meal is all about setting up a table, pouring a few drinks, and enjoying some quality time with the people you love.
10. Make memories together
One of the best things about being older is that you have such a better grasp of your life. You’ve been there and done that in so many ways, so you can more fully appreciate the present. And, of course, there are some great memories you can make with friends and family members who are also in their 60s.
If your friends and family members have kids, you can take advantage of that and make a trip to the zoo, aquarium or some other local nature spot. You can also take advantage of the weather, which can be perfect in many places around that time of year. There’s nothing like the feeling of being outside while it’s sunny and mild.
11. Go out for brunch
If you love to eat out and have a great time, but you’re in your 60s, you have an advantage. You might have been too busy at work or other things have taken up more of your time. Of course, once you’re in your 60s, you have a much better perspective on your life and you can enjoy going out to eat more often.
Brunch is a great meal to go out to. It’s not too heavy, but it’s still filling. And, it can be fun, especially if it’s a spot where a lot of people in your age range go.
12. Play golf
There’s nothing like the feeling of hitting a ball with a friend on a nice day and landing a nice shot on a beautiful green. Not only is it a great workout, but it’s also a great way to spend time with friends and family members.
13. Go to the theatre
If you’re feeling adventurous, why not go back to your roots? You can see plays or musicals, or attend a comedy or classical music concert. You’ll be getting together with your friends and family, while also getting some quality time in with your significant other. Plus, there’s nothing sexier than seeing your partner laugh and smile. What a great way to kick off a summer holiday!
14. Go to the zoo
Zoos are a great place to take young kids, as they’re often educational and interactive, but a 60-year-old might enjoy the experience even more. There’s something incredible about being able to understand and empathize with animals as old as your grandparents. When you’re 60, you’ve lived a lifetime. You’ve seen a lot, and you have a deeper understanding of life and the world around us. There’s a lot you can learn from an alien creature that is thousands of years old, or a bird that has seen the dawn of time. It might be a little too late to be a biology student, but there are still many lessons to learn. Being able to empathize with animals as they are right now is one of the best gifts you can give to your 60-year-old self.
15. Do a fundraiser
Getting together with friends and family and hosting a fundraiser is an old-school, cheap, and fun way to throw a party. You can do anything from an outdoor barbecue to a fancy dinner party at a local restaurant. Whatever you decide on, it will be a lot of fun and a great way to spend time together.
There are so many fundraising options out there. There are charity auctions, raffles, and many other fun ways to raise money for a cause. If you’re looking for a way to get your friends and family together, while also benefiting from a fundraising event, this is a wonderful idea. You can do a themed fundraiser, like the 60-year-olds’ favourite charity, the Alzheimer’s Association, which has a bowling fundraiser, or you can do a more general fundraiser, like a charity for veterans, which is a great cause for people of all ages.
16. Go bowling
Bowling is synonymous with the 60s, so it’s a fun idea for an affordable and unique 60-year-old’s holiday. Make sure you go to a great bowling alley, though! You’ll want to make sure that the experience is enjoyable and not painful. You don’t want to roll an ankle and ruin your vacation, but you also don’t want to do horribly. You want to enjoy yourself. So, go to a great bowling alley, don’t be afraid to bowl badly, and have a great time. It can be hard to enjoy yourself when you’re 65, so make the most of your youth while you can. You’ll have so many fond memories after you’re done.
17. Plan a dinner party
Planning a dinner party is a wonderful way to get your friends and family together and enjoy good food. You can do whatever you want, as long as it’s delicious and filling. You can do a themed dinner party, where everyone dresses up in their favourite 60s and 70s clothing. You can do a themed dinner party where the guests dress up as their favourite characters from movies. There are countless options for a 60-year-old’s holiday dinner party. You can also plan a scavenger hunt around the city. There are a million different things you can do, so make sure to pick something that’ll get your group out of the house and interact with each other.
18. Join a dancing class
Dancing classes might seem like a cliché 60-year-old holiday idea, but the truth is that it’s a great and affordable way to have fun with your friends. There are a million different dance classes to choose from, so you can find one that’s perfect for your group. Plus, it’s a great way to bond with your friends and family while also getting some great exercise. There are so many different kinds of dance classes to choose from, so this is a great way to get your blood flowing and have a lot of fun.
19. Host a karaoke session
Nothing says celebration quite like belting out old hits at a karaoke bar. Just make sure that you don’t overdo it, though. You don’t want to drink and drive, for one thing. You also don’t want to get super drunk. That’s a recipe for a really bad night and a really bad story at the end of the year. Just be safe, drink responsibly, and have a fun time with your friends.
20. Go to a concert
If you have a favourite band or an artist you’ve been dying to see live, now is the time to go. Why not plan a getaway to the city you want to see a show in and go for a day trip or a longer vacation? You’ll be able to see a show and possibly take in some tourist sites as well. If you want to keep things cheap, consider buying tickets as part of a group package or a fan club membership. That way, you can see the show as a group and also get some great savings.
21. Spend the day at the spa
