With the pandemic still surging in many areas, spring travel in 2022 must be flexible. Your best bet for a spring break trip is to travel in your local country. Read on for tips on the best of travel this spring.

National Parks

In the United States, National Parks will be the safest outdoor travel option this year. The natural, outside amenities are operational. Lodging can be booked online and traveling by car is safest. Check out the weather in the northern most parks, such as Yellowstone or Niagara Falls. Even spring temperatures can be brisk and very cold. Pack enough travel gear in case of a weather emergency including nonperishable snacks, extra gas, and vehicle chains. Warm clothes are always a must, as weather can change very quickly.


Some of the best beaches are on the western coast in California.  Being an outdoor activity, beaches provide a safe and relaxing environment. However, it might be considered off season, so check before you travel. In Carlsbad, LEGOLAND and Disneyland in Anaheim offer another activity for families. Check for capacity limits, vaccine, and mask requirements before you purchase tickets. Again, flexibility is key when planning a trip in 2022, so avoid prepaid vacations or nonrefundable deposits.

Texas Gulf Coast

The Gulf of Mexico in Galveston, Texas and South Padre Island also provide that beach vibe if you are looking for a safer getaway. There are many other outdoor activities in Texas to enjoy while visiting Galveston. Take a fishing boat and learn about crab pots and shrimping. Book a Bed and Breakfast in historic Galveston and tour the old downtown or seaside shops. Again, be mindful of vaccine and masking mandates to keep you and your family safe.

Fort Sumter National Monument, the start of the Civil War is across the bay and full of great historical facts.  Finally, be sure to enjoy the southern cooking that Charleston restaurants offer.
