Safe Travel & Adventure Ideas

Car on a road trip

Our spring and summer travel plans were derailed, and as we venture into fall and winter we will need to keep up precautions. As we continue to be cautious, there are certainly ways to venture outside of the house with minimal risk. All you have to do is wear your masks and avoid crowded, enclosed spaces.

Take a Road Trip

Driving is one of the safest ways to get around this fall, even if you have to rent a vehicle. You can make a day of your road trip and venture back home that evening. If you want to make it an overnight trip, consider camping or getting an AirBnB. Remember to always check for any state quarantine requirements at your destination. 

Visit National Parks

Fortunately, there’s a ton of natural beauty in America to experience even within a few hours of where you live. Use the National Parks Services website to discover parks near your home, and to read the parks’ operating status and procedures.

Hit the apple or pumpkin patch

Apple picking and pumpkin patches are iconic fall activities, and luckily they’re still considered safe. Be sure to check schedules and bring your masks! 

Book a private wine tasting

Many wineries now offer private tasting sessions, which allows guests to experience less exposure to others while enjoying their wine. Many are even hosting outdoors or will allow you to pick up a bottle and head to the vineyard for a socially distanced picnic. If you don’t live near a winery, plan a DIY tasting session. Pick up three to five bottles from the same winery, and make it extra special by setting up a picnic in the backyard.

Take in the fall foliage

Not even a pandemic can suck the joy out of the stunning autumn foliage. This is a great activity for those who love and appreciate nature and the fall season. It’s also a fun way to combine road tripping with photography and adventure. Research the best leaf peeping spots close to you and then make a full day or weekend of it.
