As the winter season begins to approach and we start thinking about potential plans for this part of the year, you might be wondering what sort of travel you can do that will be both enjoyable and feasible. Our recommendation is to head to rural destinations close to wherever you live. Why? Here are some reasons.

Smaller Crowds

As we continue to live in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s always a plus if your travel plans allow you to avoid big crowds. Cities are great, but they aren’t the safest option for travel plans at the current time. Going rural means that you’ll have plenty of space all to yourself.

A Chance to Relax

We have all been under a lot of stress over the last several months, and going rural offers an opportunity to relax and disconnect from all of the craziness that is going on right now. Slow down the pace of life in a rural setting and take a break from it all for a bit.

Spectacular Scenery

Rural settings also offer up the opportunity for you to connect with nature, setting your eyes upon some of the most beautiful sights there are around. If you love the mountains, head there, and if you love the tranquility of an isolated coastal location, you can go there too. There are so many options out there!
