It’s Spring Break time!
How did this sneak up on all of us this fast?! Spring break is fast approaching, and we could all use a little vacay. Not one forced upon us by the elements (thanks Winter Storm Uri,) but one of our choosing. With the pandemic still present in our community and across the United States, we are left to wonder how we can enjoy some quality family time in place away from home. The team at SA Social Calendar has a few ideas and suggestions we’d like to share with you all!
By now we have all created our own little Covid-pods, group of family/friends that follow and practice the same guidelines you’re all comfortable with and embarking on a vacation-pod trip sounds like a great idea. If this sounds like something for you and your pod make sure to refreshen your Covid safe ground rules and then ensuring everyone sticks to agreed-upon rules of pre-trip quarantining and testing, masking, and social distancing. Keep in mind that it only takes one person to put everyone else at risk and not just that, the risk you run in exposing a new environment you’re traveling to. If you’re planning on international travel, please remember there are new re-entry testing requirements.
Take travel to the road! Have you ever wondered what traveling in an RV would be like? Traveling in an RV is quickly growing in popularity since it allows families to remain safely in their bubbles away from home. Since some families are still working and doing distance learning from home, there’s no need to rush through your itinerary because you can still accomplish both from the road if you happen to fall behind. This would-be great opportunity to show the family some great national parks!
Finally, do a staycation! We know this one sounds boring, but it doesn’t have to if you really plan it. This is the safest way to spring break for everyone to stay healthy. Stick to outdoor activities that will have smaller crowds. We’ve all been to places where you wonder if it is actually safe to be there because the crowds are just so big. Places that require advance reservation are most likely your safest best. Check out smaller state parks in the area with biking and hiking trails. If you need a few suggestions check out our guide to outdoor activities here.
We hope we have given you some spring break inspiration and refreshers on how to travel safely with Covid-19 protocols.
