This is likely going to be the summer of the road trips and spending time in nature. Kyle Potter is the Editor-in-Chief of the Minneapolis-based website Thrifty Traveler. He says, if you’re looking for a long-distance vacation, there’s no better place to social distance than in a national park:
“For example, Zion which is one of the best and my absolute favorite national park out in Utah is just starting limited opening. And that one, in particular, that’s my favorite trip.”
Potter says the National Parks are just starting to open back up again. However, before visiting a park you are advised to check the park’s website to determine its operating status. Potter also suggests you check for restrictions regarding crossing state borders.
