Our motto here at Huff/Post50 is "Life Begins At 50." And that's right -- turning 50 marks the arrival of a new beginning. The kids are becoming adults and careers are starting to settle down. As a result, we recommend you take advantage of your youthful 50s to embark on some of the greatest adventures of your life.
If your 20s resemble the video above "10 Trips You NEED To Take in Your 20s," your 50s can be just that good and even better -- certainly more relaxing. In your 50s, we recommend you take trips that will help you unwind while exploring America and the world.
