Why Vacations May be Down but will Not Disappear

In light of recent safety precautions due to COVID-19, many vacations have been put on a temporary hold.

But after a few months of lockdown, everyone is ready to get out of the house. Vacations may be down, but there are many people who are still very much on board with safe travels.

Vacations may never look the same, but they’re still going to happen. 

Here are a few ways people will adjust vacation plans to safely travel during this pandemic.

More road trips

If you’re traveling by air these days, you may find more restrictions and delays than ever before. And it can certainly be off-putting to spend even more of your precious vacation time in an airport. 

That’s why so many travelers are opting for road trip vacations. And with all the COVID car specials going on right now, it’s a good fit. Just hop in one of any of the new Genesis models and hit the open road with the fam. 

With a road trip, you’ll have a lot more flexibility and freedom, so you can be spontaneous and adventurous for a trip everyone will remember. 

Camping makes a comeback

If you’re looking for a vacation that puts safety first, consider a camping trip. You can rent a cabin or set up a tent and enjoy the outdoors. Camping is a fun experience that almost feels like a rite of passage for kids. You’ll learn to enjoy each other’s company and become one with the outdoors while you get a break from everyday life. 

We need a change of pace

Vacations will never disappear completely because they offer us all a break from our everyday life. Even if you’re living the life of your dreams, we all have to switch things up from time to time. This means getting out of our comfort zones and living through things we’ve never experienced before. 

The only difference now is that most of us are having these experiences closer to home — and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s a lot of adventure to be had in our own backyards.

If you’re on the fence about taking a vacation, it may be a good time to evaluate your options. You can redefine what it means to take vacation and do it in a way that complies with social distancing. Just be sure to remove the mask before sunbathing. That’s not a tan line any of us want to rock.
