If quarantine has you yearning for a summer vacation like never before, there are a few things to keep in mind before booking that trip. So what do families need to know about coronavirus travel restrictions? Taking a trip is possible, but the whole world is still pretty changed by the pandemic. (Plus, traveling with kids is a challenge in itself, even under the best of circumstances.)
Because COVID-19 safety restrictions are changing constantly, it's smart to double-check your destination's rules before hitting the road. "As more states open up and try to go back to normal, there will be an influx of people traveling again. Wherever you plan to go, check with the official local city, county, or visitor website to find out what is open and what is closed before you arrive," Lynnette Braillard of Visit Port Angeles, the official visitor website for the City of Port Angeles, tells Romper. Also, remember that some destinations are not accepting visitors yet. "Families should know that many places have still yet to open; it is important to keep up with what is going on in the location you decide to travel," travel expert Kayla Rauh tells Romper. If you're willing to adapt to these changes, here's how you can travel safely in 2020.
