Elderly couples are going all out when it comes to the retirement phase. After having put in hard work through their many years of life, many are exploring interesting retirement options, whether it’s hobbies, schedules or even living. Many senior adults have ditched the idea of elderly homes or living with their children and have taken adventurous alternatives. Kayla Johnson—who goes by @kaylgjohnson on TikTok—shared an adorable video of her parents having the time of their lives post-retirement with one of the most unique living options so far. Her video on TikTok caught just a glimpse, which was enough to summarize the life her parents were living.

She added a text overlay in her video that read, “POV: Your parents build a retirement home next to their best friends and this is what you pull up to when you visit.” In the video, her parents are seen along with two other elderly couples sipping an elegant drink and standing on their porch. As the video goes on, the couples all begin to dance and groove to music as they welcome the woman. The three couples are completely in their tunes, dancing adorably and truly enjoying themselves, something that everyone is looking forward to once they retire. Their unchoreographed spontaneous dance somehow hysterically managed to sync into a rhythm and it was quite a pleasant sight to be a part of.Image Source: TikTok| @kaylgjohnson

They have indeed set the bar high and proved that one can go all out and live the life they desire and that age is just a number. The woman’s video received over 2 million views and many were in awe of the wholesomeness captured. Many strived to be like the couples and be able to celebrate life in unique ways. With over 17k comments, all friends were tagging each other to plan something as fun and energetic as the couples. @nightmarefairytale said, “They’re doing life right.” @lucasjsummers shared their experience and said, “My dad lives on a river, all of his college friends live there now. They just take a boat and go when they want to see each other.” @hwhiteard said, “Can verify this is a fun crowd to hang out with.” Making retirement fun is the new trend and undoubtedly couples are all for it.

In a similar instance, Marty and Jess Ansen opted for a unique and luxurious retirement option that is ironically cheaper and better than a retirement home. The duo have been cruising for over 500 days and have been having an adventure beyond amazing, per Current Affair. The couple calls it their “lifestyle.” “Where else can you go for dinner, a show and dancing? Through the day, you have all these activities,” Jess said. The couple shared that they enjoy ping-pong, beer, scenic beauty and exceptional service at a cost-efficient rate and there’s no reason to stop! “It’s a beautiful life,” Marty says. The couple are moving on to bigger cruise ships as they move ahead to larger and longer surprises and adventures of life. Couples like these are truly redefining retirement and making the most of all their hard-earned free time!
