Travelling is one of the luxuries that had been globally suspended as the COVID-19 pandemic made its way around the world in 2020. We still hold the responsibility to flatten the curve as we distanced ourselves socially and cancelled our travel plans to reduce the virus from spreading. But I believe we are starting to see the “light” at the end of the tunnel in this crisis.
Numerous nations are coming together to practice social distancing while lockdowns are being imposed. The experts are unsure of the possibility of the plans for international summer travel but that doesn’t mean that’s totally off the table.
But you know what? If your heart is craving the experience of being a wanderer, the thrill and adventure that accompanies it as you explore new places, if you’re tired of being bored, this can be a fun activity to revive your spirits.
Let's take a look at the top 5 places, I believe are both fun and affordable. Some are a quick road trip away and others are merely a simple flight. Any of these spots are sure to scratch the travel itch and make you feel like you truly had an adventure and “got away” from it all.
Where to travel? The United States is dotted with some incredible places worth exploring, from serene beach resorts, cold mountains to some up & coming cities that you just can’t miss out on! You’ll definitely want to place these spots on your bucket list!
Niagara Falls, New York A fantastic option for anyone looking for fun and adventure and the excitement of a US based wonder. Witness 3,160 tons of water flowing every second and experience one of their boat tours to get up close and personal with the raging waters. You can enjoy a romantic dinner overlooking the falls and stay at one of their historic inns or hotels, reportedly where Newlyweds Jérôme and Elizabeth Bonaparte celebrated their forbidden nuptials.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida This beach town has been completely transformed into the perfect getaway of your dreams. Its sandy shores are not too crowded and you can bask under the sun as the palm trees sway while looking over the sparkling waters. You can choose within a range of fancy hotels that offer you comfort and luxury in every stay. Activities? We got you covered with everything from an All You Can Eat BBQ Dinner and Show Sightseeing Cruise, a Segway tour of downtown, to a 4-hour Sailing charter that you can customize and enjoy! There is something here for everyone. Click here for info on cruises, sailing, and water tours or try their night tours!
Santa Fe, New Mexico The timeless Santa Fe is an emerging spot for those who crave a little adrenaline rush. Ever try your hand at archery? You can at one of their fabulous workshops in Santa Fe. From walking down the trails of the ancestral pueblo people, chocolate trails, National Parks to red chile peppers of Chimayo, there are numerous things that you have to try!
Charleston, South Carolina You won’t be disappointed in the hospitality this coastal town has to offer. Charleston has polished itself in art, hospitality, and food over the years. This is a small area but it has a lot of memories to offer! The Gibbes Museum now offers a 3D renovation that guests can check out as they explore the city.
Napa Valley, California The place to go if you are looking for world-class wine tours and tastings. With its picturesque vineyards (over 400 throughout the region), and its stunning architecture, Napa Valley is a must for both the newbie wine lover or the seasoned wine enthusiast. But where do you go? May we suggest The Chateau Montelena, where visitors will be greeted by a stone castle carved into a hillside overlooking a Chinese garden and lake. The property even reaches out to the base of Mount St. Helena. Don't want to drive? Hire a private driver, take one of their wine trail trains, or grab a private shuttle with your friends and make the most of your trek through the valley.
