Simplify and Enjoy


Jul 7, 2020

For most families, the school year is over and after being at home for months, there’s this desire to get out and explore. However, with coronavirus cases growing, many families are wondering, can we have a safe summer gateway?

Summer Break (without Travel?)

We’re in a strange season. Usually, summer is when families go on vacation, but travel is tricky (to put it mildly).

Different parts of this country are being hit to varying degrees. We have states like Florida, Texas, Arizona, and South Carolina where the cases are leaping up and they’re hitting new records.

You also have some states where the numbers are fairly steady like Virginia and Connecticut. 

So the questions become - is there a safe way to have a family trip? Or are we stuck at some for another season? 

We’re going to look at a few ways you can have a family getaway - more local for sure- as well as making a staycation truly fun.

In this episode, we’ll get into:

  • Return of the  Family Road Trips, Weekend Getaways, and Day Trips
  • Travel tips to minimize your risk while you’re away from home
  • The joys of a staycation Yes, you can stay put and enjoy yourself. (At least that’s what my husband Rob thinks. )

Let’s get started!
