Although COVID-19 is hindering travel to many of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, less famous, more remote retreats are enjoying a resurgence. From hiking hidden hillsides to riding remote routes, there are plenty of ways to escape the crowds and have a socially distanced holiday.
Within the United States, RV rentals have risen in popularity under the pandemic as restless travelers have hit the open road in a bid to get away from it all. Holidaymakers can immerse themselves in the awe-inspiring nature of Colorado National Monument, complete with its red rock spires and deep-cut canyons, or take a trip to the expansive vineyards of Napa Valley. For a truly socially distanced trip, vacationers can visit the mountains, deserts and dunes of Texas’ Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
