vacation safely summer

COVID-19 has changed the way that most Americans live their lives. Social distancing has become the norm and most of our year has been spent inside. As the summer months have crept closer, the need for a vacation has become stronger than ever. A change of scenery is going to be a welcome change. Of course, it’s important that you find a way to have your summer vacation in a way that is safe for your family. The good news is that there are more options than you might think.

Here are some great tips about how you can observe social distancing guidelines while also having an amazing summer vacation!


Travel the Country in an RV

Pick all of the places you’d like to visit and go from one to the next over your vacation time. If you were staying in hotels this could be quite expensive, but you can cut the costs by renting an RV. This allows you to travel to and from each destination and gives you a place to stay when you get there! RVShare allows you to rent RVs in all shapes and sizes. The costs are cheaper than the average hotel and they are excellent options if you want to social distance this summer.


Plan a Series of Day Trips

A vacation doesn’t have to mean that you’ll end up far from home. Whether you decide to visit all of the great cities of Texas or neighboring states, there are a lot of destinations worth a visit within a day or less of drive time. You can visit campgrounds, mountains, lakes, museums, and plenty of amazing landmarks. Day trips are a great way to recharge and often are easier on the finances than a longer vacation.


Hit the Campgrounds

Camping is a great way to bond with family. You can enjoy a host of outdoor activities and you can safely distance yourself from others. If you love hiking, fishing, and being outdoors this could be the perfect vacation for you. Luckily Texas has no shortage of campgrounds, so you can stay close to home or head to other states for new experiences.


Rent a House for the Summer

If you can’t afford your own vacation home, consider renting one. This provides more safety than staying in a hotel and it’s often more enjoyable. You’ll get the whole house to yourself. Most vacation homes offer a variety of amenities, ensuring that everyone can find the kind of home they want to stay in. If you get a lake house, you can enjoy lakeside living in a private setting.


Hit up a National Park

If you want to get out and see something majestic, consider visiting one of the county’s national parks. From Yosemite to the Grand Canyon, these parks offer phenomenal views and landmarks that everyone should experience at least once. You can rent an RV for your travel or just take the family car. Whatever you choose, you can camp at the park and experience all the amenities that the local area has to offer.
