2022 Travel: What Does YOUR Future Getaway Look Like?
Written by: Melissa on January 19, 2022
From sampling new flavors to exploring an unfamiliar city to hiking different trails, traveling gives us the opportunity to expand our horizons and reconnect with our passions. It also allows us to step away from the stresses of home and work, to put our feet up, and indulge in some much-needed relaxation.
For many of us, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted travel plans and made it harder to anticipate the future. Despite these obstacles, it’s still possible to plan a travel experience that matches your personal comfort level. What does your 2022 travel forecast look like? Here are a few ideas to get you started!
Plan A Staycation
You don’t have to go far to take a break from your normal routine. It can be fun to play tourist in your hometown. Spend time exploring local parks and attractions, try food from new restaurants, or plan a one-tank road trip. Sticking closer to home is a good option for travelers who prefer the comfort of understanding local COVID-19 regulations, with maximum flexibility for adjusting plans if necessary.
See the States
A passport isn’t a requirement for every great vacation. Many travelers are taking advantage of the opportunity to explore new destinations in the United States. Popular options include beach house and cabin rentals, National Park visits, ski trips, and amusement parks. Why not hit the highway on the ultimate cross-country adventure?
Get Back on Board
While it may look a little different than your last vacation, plenty of destinations are open and available when you’re ready to travel again. Many travel suppliers—including resorts and cruise lines—have adopted strict health and safety protocols. Flexibility and willingness to follow local regulations is key, and your travel agent is happy to help you compare options and understand policies.
Even if your next getaway hasn’t officially made it onto your 2022 travel calendar (yet!) you can keep your vacation dreams alive. Keep feeding your piggy bank and saving vacation days for your next epic adventure.
