You don’t need to get on a plane to enjoy a weekend getaway with family and friends. There are many adventures within driving distance that can keep you Covid safe while experiencing some time outside of the house. We are all suffering from lockdown frustrations, so finding things to do while getting out of the house can be necessary to lower stress and refresh the mind. Now that the CDC has relaxed regulations on social distancing recommendations for people who have been vaccinated, people are looking for things to do outside of their area.
Camping has quickly become a great alternative for typical resort vacations. After a year of shutdowns, we all need something to look forward to. When planning your next camping trip, you’ll need to make sure to reserve a campsite in advance, because reservations fill up fast. If you have furry friends that are excited to join the trip, it’s best to check if they are allowed, though most are pet-friendly. Based on your family’s interests, there are typically many recreational activities near the campgrounds that would suit groups of all ages. For the explorers, there are hiking trails, river rafting, and climbing depending on the area you travel to. For the camper that enjoys sightseeing, bird watching, or relaxing on a hammock between two trees, there are great national parks that accommodate the more quaint side of nature. But as for glampers who want to enjoy a cabin in the woods with a nice fireplace and hot tub, there are some awesome options to enjoy the outdoors, without having to rough it so much. ideas for the outdoorsy family can pick a campsite near a hiking trail. One of my favorites though is enjoying a campground near the beach to enjoy sunbathing, surfing, or maybe even a snorkel near a reef.
There are many ways to get out of the house and into nature. It just depends on how much “nature” you want to get into. Decide if you want to go camping or glamping on your next trip, or maybe a bit of both! Rent a cabin, lite a fire, roasted some marshmallows, and enjoy a drink under the stars.
