Domestic Travel Options during COVID-19

Since we can’t be in Pamplona, Spain this July, we thought we’d gather up some options a little closer to home. As we learn how to adjust to the new normal, domestic travel destinations in the USA are going to be accessible to many – some even within driving distance. It is up to each person to determine the risk associated with domestic travel. Before making plans, be sure to check the CDC Domestic Travel Guidelines to see how they might impact your plans.

Traveling by car can be a great way to get out and see something new. This minimizes your exposure to others, and gives you time to take in the scenery. We are still hopeful that one of the great American festivals will still happen this year: the 2020 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta will be held October 3rd through 11th in Albuquerque, New Mexico. With plenty of room to spread out, this is a great way to take in one of the most picturesque festivals in the world.

Another great domestic travel alternative is near-shore cruising. Great Lakes Cruises provide a great opportunity to see the splendor of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. Due to the locks and dams between each lake, the size of the vessels is naturally limited to smaller cruise ships. Small-ship cruising offers comfort and safety, while you’ll have the peace of mind that you’ll be in a U.S. or Canadian port each night.

Whatever you choose to do with your domestic travels, we look forward to welcoming you back in Pamplona for the Running of the Bulls.
