If you’re anything like me, I can not wait to hop on a plane and wiggle my toes in the sand. But with two young kids and a couple high risk family members, jetting off right away also sounds a bit too risky. So when travel restrictions are lifted in the US, where should travelers go first? My answer is a warm, sunny destination. It’s suspected that the sun’s UV rays will kill the new coronavirus and it’s a proven fact that the sunlight does boost your mood. And I’m sure we can all use a good mood booster right about now! Obviously, it goes without saying that things won’t be back to ‘normal’ for a while even when travel is allowed. I imagine we can expect to have to wear masks, to keep our distance from other people and to be served from behind acrylic sneeze guards. Whilst none of the measures are ideal, they are important to keep everyone safe. Whilst we are all dreaming of going traveling, it’s unlikely that any of us will be doing so for a long time. Currently, the risk of coronavirus is too high to risk going to another country and catching the deadly virus. However, when travel restrictions are finally lifted and it’s safe to go and travel, it’s good to have some locations ready to go. When we go traveling, we’ll definitely be trying to source some Hand Sanitizer from somewhere to make sure we all stay safe whilst traveling and entering congested areas. There will still be rules to follow for our safety, even after travel restrictions have lifted, so people will have to be careful. Despite the Coronavirus effect on our drive, I doubt people will be able to get that close to each other even when we are allowed to travel freely. Of course, we don’t have to worry about being in congested areas just yet, so for now, we’ll just plan some ideas of where to go. So here are my top recommended destinations once travelers are permitted to travel in the US once again~
When travel restrictions are lifted in the US, where should travelers go first?
- Oahu + Maui, Hawaii
- Charleston, South Carolina + Savannah, Georgia
- Miami + Key West, Florida
Yes these first three recommendations are actually 6 different destinations, but I think they are nicely paired together. If you only have a short amount of time to travel, then pick one. But if you have more than a week, I’d highly recommend hitting both hot spots. When visiting these spots, you may need to wear a face mask or at least a face covering of some sort to minimize the chance of you contracting Covid-19. Most shops and transport will require you to wear a mask to protect yourself and other tourists. If you don’t have a mask, you can visit the customlanyards4all website to find a suitable covering.
- San Diego, California
- Scottsdale, Arizona
