I don’t have a bucket list but I do dream of places to visit. Already a pleasant memory are a safari in Kenya, a trip down the Amazon, a cruise at the top-of-the-world, a stroll through the streets of St. Petersburg, a ride down the Nile and a tour of the Valley of the Kings where King Tut was buried.
So what’s left?
Well, it is as easy as talking to one of AAA’s veteran travel agents to get excited about the next vacation.
Sip tea at a private welcome reception at Windsor Castle.
Marvel at the construction of the Great Wall while exploring a section visited primarily by locals.
Taste regional wines as an intimate guest at a private estate in Northern Spain, opening its doors only to you.
Enjoy VIP access to the Vatican Museum.
Delve into aboriginal culture as a local tribesman guides you on a private rain forest nature walk down under.
Feel the power of the Colorado River as you enjoy an exclusive dinner on a sandy beach along the river.
Relive history as an authentic cowboy regales you with stories during a private meeting before attending a Wild West rodeo show.
Absorb the music as you are treated to an exclusive and private Jazz concert featuring the Louis Armstrong Society Jazz Band and their leader Jimmy Maxwell.
Experience private cooking demonstrations in Canada with top local chefs. Enjoy priority embarkation on many cruises.
Relive your childhood at Disney’s Story Time Experience at Walt Disney World, and enjoy preferred fireworks viewing.
Okay, I have been to Disney and the thrill is going with children, at least for me.
But it is easy to develop a travel appetite with the unique and engaging experiences offered by AAA Vacations® – a customized collection of tours and cruises designed to provide AAA members with unique and exclusive life experiences.
The collection includes vacation options to faraway, exotic destinations throughout the world as well as the United States and Canada, and most vacations have discounts or benefits exclusive to AAA Members.
There are cruises with priority boarding, dinner for two in a specialty onboard restaurant, or a complimentary shore excursion.

Locally hosted packages feature unique member experiences in destinations including Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, London, Paris, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Rome, Florence, and Venice.
Or you can travel on your own- my preference because when I want to stop and browse, I can.
Lastly, there are independent city-stay vacations. AAA Vacations can arrange for those who crave independent sojourns to establish a central base in hotels in Mexico, Hawaii, the South Pacific, Costa Rica, the Caribbean and the United States.
So I don’t dream of buckets (sorry Morgan Freeman) but I do dream of the money AAA Vacations® saved and the benefits they added.
