We took a poll with 1,000 seasoned senior travelers, and these are the results in order of preferences, although not necessarily ours:

5. Grand Canyon AZ: A visit to the beautifully huge work of art created by Mother Nature results in lasting memories. Watch the dancing colors as the sun sets on the South Rim, ride the mules down Bright Angel Trail and just enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

4. San Diego Zoo CA: For a century, it has featured more than 4,000 rare and endangered animals, as well as a world-class botanical garden, with 6,500 exotic plant species. The animals who inhabit 100 acres of land range from koalas to clouded leopards. Visitors can take the Skyfari gondola lift as it glides above the zoo, watching it all from an exciting perspective. 3. Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando FL: The Happiest Place On Earth attracts more travelers than any resort anywhere. Six different theme parks and a wilderness preserve cover well over 20,000 acres. Visitors can make memories at the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, the Animal Kingdom, and two massive water parks.

2. National Mall and Memorial Parks, Washington, DC: It attracts over 25 million annual visitors, the second most visited tourist attraction in the world! Wander through history from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument.

1. Times Square  NYC: The intersection of Broadway and 42nd Street is truly the "Crossroads of the World”. See it all: theater, restaurants, upscale shopping and street scenes. The annual New Year's ball drop and fireworks show attract a million midnight revelers to Times Square.
