Summer Escapes: Stress-Free Travel Tips for an Unforgettable Vacation


🌞✈️ Planning a summer getaway right here in the United States? You're not alone! With the increase of airfare, many travelers are opting to travel here in the US. A lot of you are even taking multiple smaller trips rather than one big vacation. If you're feeling a little bit of stress starting up as you prepare to head out on an adventure, fear not,  I have some tips and tricks to ensure you have an amazing and stress-free summer vacation.  💫
1️⃣ Start Early and Plan Ahead: With high demand and limited availability, it's crucial to book your accommodations, flights, and activities in advance. I'm a fan of just going out on a whim and booking a room a few hours before we get there. this post-2020 world, it's getting more difficult to do that in a lot of popular tourist areas.🗓️
2️⃣ Explore Hidden Gems: Instead of following the crowds, think outside the box and discover lesser-known destinations. You'll not only avoid the crowds, but you might also stumble upon breathtaking scenery and local hidden treasures. Download the app Atlas Obsura and find cool and quirky sights along your route.🕵️‍♀️🗺️
3️⃣ Embrace the Outdoors: The great outdoors offers endless opportunities for adventure and relaxation, without the big pricetag attached. Whether it's hiking in national parks, basking on secluded beaches of area lakes or coastline, or enjoying water sports, nature has it all. 🏞️🏖️🚣‍♀️
4️⃣ Low-Cost and Free Activities: Save some money while having a blast by seeking out low-cost or free options. From community events and festivals to exploring local museums and parks, there's always a budget-friendly adventure waiting for you. 💰🎪🖼️
5️⃣ Get Kids Involved: Traveling with little ones? Make the trip extra special by involving them in the planning process. Let them choose activities or attractions they're excited about and watch their eyes light up with joy. It's all about creating lifelong memories together. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦❤️
6️⃣ Keep Calm and Relax: As a mom to 4 grown kids and now a Nana, I know traveling with kids can be overwhelming at times. Take time for yourself and practice self-care during your vacation. Find quiet moments to recharge, enjoy a spa day, or simply savor a peaceful sunset. You deserve it! 😌🌅💆‍♀️
