The road of life is long, and it stretches off in the distance towards retirement: That beautiful day when you can throw away your suits, and ties, and forget how to do your job and just live. Think about all the things you would do if you didn't have to work, write them down, and that’s what you do when you retire. If you’re scratching your head right now because it's devoid of retirement plans, that’s okay, here are some of the best things to do when you retire, so grab a pen and take some notes.

When you retire you can do anything you want, you’ve earned it. Whether you’re already retired and you’re just hanging out on the internet, or you’re at work dreaming of that wonderful day when you can dive out of your office building, there are plenty of fun-filled options on this list ways to spend your retirement.

Vote up the things you’d spend your retirement enjoying. And if you’ve got some amazing retirement plans waiting for you around the corner, share them in the comments.
