We’re obviously not going to be doing a lot of travelling right now, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t plan for the far future when we’re all finally going to be able to go and enjoy the outside world again! You won’t even have to leave the country for these travel gems! So we’ve gathered up some of the best places to travel around the US once you’re free from quarantine.

New Orleans

Arguably, there are fewer places in the US with more personality than New Orleans. From their famous Mardi Gras celebrations to delicious local foods such as gumbo and beignets: 

New Orleans is a place that everyone should visit at least once in their lives. 

What makes New Orleans unique from the rest of America is its seamless blend of the different Caribbean and European elements that you really can’t find anywhere else. So get planning for a future trip to Louisiana. 

You’re going to have a great vacation there no matter what time of year you decide to visit! There’s always something interesting going on in New Orleans.

The Grand Canyon

If you haven’t seen this significant landmark yet, you’re missing out! You might imagine that the most exciting thing about the Grand Canyon is that it’s a hole in the ground. And you might be right. But it’s a pretty huge hole!

It can be super pretty to look at depending on the time of day that you show up. And the Colorado River beautifully cuts through it. It is quite a sublime sight to see that will put you in awe at the power of Earth’s majesty. 

If you’re planning a trip to Arizona, though, just remember that it’s usually quite hot and dry in the warmer seasons. So you’re going to need a hat, sunscreen, and a water bottle. But in the winter, it can actually get snowy around the Grand Canyon, so you’re going to need to dress warmly. 

Yellowstone National Park

If you love national parks, you could also consider visiting Yosemite National Park in California. It’s one of the most popular travel destinations for nature-lovers and hiking enthusiasts alike.
