Looking Ahead to Your Summer Travel

Need something to look forward to in these trying times? Let’s get to planning a summer travel or a summer camping getaway. Once we flatten the curve and life returns to normal for us all, small businesses are going to need us more than ever.  Pack up the coolers and your favorite grilling apron, and check out these great options below, courtesy of GlampingHub.

New York State of Mind

Upstate New York has something for everyone and is the perfect getaway for summer travel 2020. There are vast opportunities to explore – cabins, safari tents, and natural landscapes (including the Hudson River and Niagara Falls), just to name a few.  If you’ve been dreaming of an escape to the wild outdoors, this is the place for you.  What better way to unwind after the last few stressful months than to take in the majestic calm of fresh mountain air in the Catskill Mountains? This is a great option for Fall 2020 too since Upstate New York is also known for its beautiful autumn leaves.

Georgia On My Mind

Looking for a southern camping experience?  Georgia is on our mind. With its gorgeous national parks including Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests and the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains (part of the Appalachian Mountain range), Georgia is the ideal place for a summer camping getaway.  A little known fact is that Georgia is also home to some amazing coastline sights and sounds.  Escape into The Peach State with a stay in a cabin or even a tree house rental.

O Canada

Due north of Seattle, Washington is Vancouver, Canada – a western coastal seaport in the lower mainland of British Columbia.  Although Vancouver is the most populous city in the province, don’t let that distract you from its abundance of gorgeous summer travel and camping opportunities. We can’t wait to check them out!  From Banff National Park with its many trails (including pet friendly options) to countless cabins in their majestic mountains and even beach rentals along their sprawling coastline, you just cannot go wrong taking a camping trip into The Great White North of Vancouver, Canada.  You deserve to treat yourself to the forests, mountains, and rivers of Vancouver this summer!

Down & Out? Let’s Go Down Under

If you’ve never visited the outback, you should know there’s more to it than the kangaroos, koalas and “throw a shrimp on the barbie” (although there are definitely plenty of grilling opportunities exploring the outdoors there). Sydney, Australia – in New South Wales – is the perfect destination for your post-quarantine getaway.  Escape the humdrum and spread your wings exploring this beautiful country. Check out all that their great outdoors have to offer, including the Blue Mountains National Park on the outskirts of the city suburbs, or lay claim to your own personal piece of paradise at one of their over 10,000 distinct beaches.  Australia is rife with natural beauty, and Aussies pride themselves in being laid back and fun people, so be sure you plan to stay a while and take in all they have to offer.  You won’t regret how many “g’days” you’ll experience down under, mate.
