As health scares make international travel more difficult and dangerous, you may be considering domestic travel for your summer vacation. Here are three ways to do it in style.
Perhaps you, like many people, dream of owning a waterfront vacation home. No need to make such an expensive purchase; simply rent lakefront cabins Massachusetts. Lake cabins are perfect for relaxation and adventure. Spend your days reading as you lounge in a porch hammock, or take a leisurely paddle around the lake in a kayak. If you prefer a little more speed, try a power boat or powered personal watercraft. Or stay on land and challenge yourself with a strenuous hike or bike ride. The cabins are nestled in nature, but you also have access to historic Boston, just an hour’s drive away.
The great American road trip is alive and well. Traveling by recreational vehicle is ideal for families. By stopping at multiple destinations, you can accommodate everyone’s interests. Hike at national parks, shop at art galleries and boutiques in cities and quaint towns, lounge at beaches along the Gulf coast. Unlike other road trips, you don’t have to unpack and repack at different hotels — just pack the RV once and you are set for the whole trip. RV travel is also ideal for families with dietary restrictions because you have the option to prepare your own meals. Best of all, you won’t need to find a dog sitter: your family pets can come along.
Even for vacations, there is no place like home. Staycations became popular a decade ago, but they make more sense than ever today. They allow you to save money, explore your own backyard, and still have a great time creating memories with your family. Stay home, have food delivered and do jigsaw puzzles, charades tournaments and movie marathons. End each night with s’mores around your backyard firepit. Or sleep at home, but play tourist in your own town during the day. See the sights you normally take for granted: visit museums, play miniature golf, see the historical monuments.
