Nothing like getting out of town for a long weekend with your best girlfriends to unwind, relax and just watch that stress melt away, right? Covid-19 has made that a bit more challenging and has made most of us itching to get out of the house even more. So whether you want to get away for a weekend of fun, girl talk, spa treatments or time out in nature, but you want to do it safely- we have you covered. Take a peek at our ideas for getting that girl time in pandemic style and let’s all hope for normalcy soon!
Prior to heading away for the weekend it is best to do some research and see what regulations may be in place at your destination. When out in public, do your best to maintain social distance and wear a mask. You and your travel buddies may want to get tested prior to getting together so you can be sure you are all doing your part to minimize any risk of spreading the virus, Pack lots of hand sanitizer and some extra masks. Now that we got that out of the way, let’s see how we can still connect with the world and have a memorable time with your besties.
RV life- What better way to spend some time in nature with the girls and stay safe at the same time. Renting an RV is a great way to hit the road, take that weekend road trip and keep your exposure risks to a minimum. Pro tip- make sure you rent an RV with a bathroom. Now you just need to decide where to go! National parks are generally a great choice but some may have limited amenities right now. A great app called Hipcamp may help you find some off the beaten path camping getaways.
Remote Cabins- Get a sense of nature with the comforts of home. Spend the day exploring nature, taking hikes, catching a boat ride and just unwinding. When dusk falls, head back to the cabin, grab a glass of wine, make an easy dinner and relax in style. Some cabins feature indoor hot tubs and other super exciting amenities. This guide has a list of some of the best remote cabins across the nation.
Staycation- Turn your humble abode into a relaxing weekend getaway. Stock up on the wine, cook some great meals together and binge watch Netflix. Catch up on girl time right from the comfort of your own home.
Skiing weekend- Head for the slopes and enjoy the weekend. A great way to get some fun in and still be safe. Since you are outdoors, and as long as you mask up and keep your distance, your risk of being exposed is definitely reduced. Consider renting a cabin or other loding where you can cook (helping again to lower your risk)
We get it- this pandemic has us all at our wits end and our urge to travel is getting stronger and stronger. With a little planning and research,(and keeping the guidelines in mind)- you can still get out and spend some time with those you love.
