Your Last Big Summer Road Trip: Make It Restful and Fun
When you are ready for your last big summer road trip, you may not know where to go or what to do. You want to get out of the house and make something of these final days of the summer. Plus, you may want to get out of the house before global circumstances put us back in lockdown.
The Remote Summer Road Trip
Irrespective of the circumstances around us (for example, in 2021, we’re still dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic,) taking a remote road trip is better for your soul. Use this time to truly refresh yourself from what could have been a very busy summer. You want to make sure that you go somewhere that is as quiet as possible.
Yes, much of America is not quiet, but you should judge that in terms of where you normally live. The suburbs are loud and filled with cars—maybe you escape to a smaller hamlet. If you live in a quiet little town, go somewhere even more remote. If you live in the city, just get out of the city.
Some people go so far as heading to a spa that gives them quiet even though it is not located in a quiet place.
For others, this may sound counterintuitive, but stay in the city, find a highrise Airbnb, and get away from the traffic down below. The same could be true for a hotel room that is more than 10 stories off the ground.
The Cabin Trip
A cabin is a good place to go and bring friends. Most of the rental cabins you find on today’s market are fairly remote—as mentioned above—but also have hot tubs. Many of them sit near wineries or breweries, and you can even go produce picking during your trip.
Historic Summer Road Trips
Pick a part of the country and you will find a preponderance of historic sites related to that region. In the South, there are tons of Civil War battlefields that now host museums, hiking trails, beautiful monuments, etc. If you to the Northeast, you will find old homes and Revolutionary War monuments. Cross the Midwest into the Great Plains, and you will find homesteading monuments. The same is true as you get into the Mountain West and up to the West Coast.
For all these trips, you can order new custom bags, pack and store with wisdom, and truly enjoy the end of the summer.
