How To Safely Travel Before The End Of Summer

Updated: Sep 26, 2020

As we all know and have experienced first-hand, this year's travel plans have been put on hold. I know personally that I had several trips planned that will now have to wait until 2021 (and beyond.)  However, just because we can't fly to Europe and picnic next to the Eiffel Tower, doesn't mean we can't explore - we just have to get creative and find new places to see - locally.  

I think it is incredibly important to remember that 'travel' can be just as much fun even within just a few miles of your hometown.  There's always something new you can be doing instead of staying indoors!  

**This will not only mean a fun weekend or day trip for you, but you will be supporting local business' which is really important this year as so many are struggling financially and need our help.**

Just remember, if you are planning on traveling, even locally, do so safely.  Be sure to bring your mask and stay 6 feet from others. If you do decide to bring a travel buddy along, make sure they're being respectful of your health and boundaries too.  I would not recommend driving for 8 hours with a friend who has been a bit careless and has NOT been wearing their mask regularly. Even though they seem healthy, they may be sick and not showing symptoms.  It's important to be wise and find a respectful / like-minded travel pal to join you.

In addition to finding someone to go with you [or planning your solo trip], there are some other important pieces to this travel puzzle to keep in mind.  What are the safest ways to have fun? What should you bring with you on the journey? Where can I go? 

DON'T WORRY GUYS. This is what I'm here for. I'm giving you some weekend getaway / road trip ideas that will help you travel, safely and get the much needed R & R you deserve. I am also adding a checklist for your travels so you don't forget any of the necessities.  

Weekend/ Day Trip Getaway Ideas: - Lake-house Weekend - Beach Weekend - Campsite  -Cabin - Fishing Trip - Vineyard with lots of outdoor space - National Park - Day Trip - Washington DC or any place with outdoor monuments / museums. - Drive-In movie - Friend's house you haven't seen in a while [be sure to stay 6 ft]

Here Are A Few "Road Trip Must haves"

[car necessities, personal necessities, activities to stay busy]

- Favorite Book [Recommendation for my single ladies: Why Men Love Bitches]

- Reusable water bottle

- Bluetooth speaker

- Outlets that can plugin to car [you can buy these on Amazon]

- Wipes / hand sanitizer

Lastly, be sure to read about local state restrictions because every state is different. I found a ton of information on Google but Travel Pulse gave me a great resource that was written recently! You can find it here

Bon Voyage!
