“We can all agree that Maine is a truly beautiful place to live. But we all need a change of scenery or an escape from the snow in winter. The retirement years can be a period of life when you have the time to get out and explore the world, take the trip you’ve always dreamed about and check a few things off your bucket list.
Mary Ellen Lessard, a tenured travel consultant with AAA Northern New England in Portland, Maine joins Down East magazine’s Retire to Maine podcast. We discuss popular trips for travelers age 50+, tips & suggestions for getting the most out of a trip, senior & military discounts and the benefits of travel insurance & using a travel consultant.”
