Who is ready for a VACATION?! It’s been a heck of a few months, (and it’s not over yet) but across the country lockdown restrictions are slowly lifting, and businesses are beginning to open again. Although some vacations may have been changed or postponed, there are still lots of ways to have fun this summer.
1. Channel your inner Clark Griswold and Drive!
Pack up the Family Truckster and bypass they airport. Not all vacations have to involve flying around the world or cruising across an ocean. Start thinking of ideas that are drive to destinations. We are doing some beach vacays in our family this year!
2. Rent a home away from home!
Avoid busy lobby and hotel amenities like lobbies, bars and pools. Consider renting a house or full efficiency unit in a condominium or timeshare property. This type of property will let you control your environment more. Bring your own supplies and give the house a thorough cleaning as soon as you get there, focusing on kitchens, bathrooms, doorknobs, grimy remote controls and light switches. With a kitchen, you be able to prepare your own meals and avoid busy restaurants.
3. Pack Everything You Need!
Do the majority of your shopping for supplies at home in your usual environment. Pack up a cooler with perishables, and fill some laundry baskets with your groceries and cleaning supplies. Pack disinfecting wipes, but also remember cans of spray so that you can get into all of the nooks and crannies as well as disinfecting the air and fabric surfaces.
4. More Outdoor Activities!
Instead of focusing on busy theme parks, crowded boardwalks, cruise ships, and museums, plan your vacation around outdoor activities where you can maximize social distancing and still have fun.
Ideas like: going to the beach, family dance party, hiking, kayaking, surfing, boating, sailing, family walks, fishing, renting jet skis, camping, bike rides, swimming, back yard games like corn hole, board games with the family.
