Have you been secretly eyeballing certain travel destinations during your extended time indoors? Maybe you were even in the middle of planning a vacation and then everything got super complicated.
Needless to say, we’ve all been mentally planning our next trip––even if we’re unsure when that might be.
But, this is actually the perfect time to take some of your favorite CBD products on the road with you and visit some of the most breathtaking sights that mother nature has to offer.
Here are a few ideas to get the ball rolling.
5. Escape From Reality With The Rugged Beauty Of Big Sur
Big Sur is one of those places that makes for the perfect RV trip! You and your family can travel up the Central Coast of California and take in all of the spectacular views. Big Sur is what most like to call more of an underdeveloped travel destination, even though it receives just as many tourists as Yosemite on an annual basis.
You won’t find many restaurants, restrooms, or even “open road”, but you will find some spectacular little nooks and crannies of the earth like Bird Island Trail. It’s a special little cove area nestled in a canyon with a special opening for the sea to splash in. If it has to be described in one word––magical!
There’s also the Big Sur river where you’ll be able to bust out your hammock and chill without a care in the world right by the riverside. If you’re looking to surround yourself with nature in its purest form, Big Sur will not disappoint.
4. Stand In Awe Of Nature At Redwood National State Park
There’s been a sharp increase in the number of people looking to get out of the house and immerse themselves in nature. The Redwoods are nothing short of spectacular. Some of these trees tower over 368 feet and some are over 2,000 years old!
The Redwoods are a great option because you can still practice social distance precautions during the activities you guys choose. Some of the most popular activities are hiking, camping, or even the trees of mystery. You can also take a pic with a gigantic Paul Bunyan that’s nearly as tall as the trees!
If you want to get some exercise take a hike down Tall Trees Cove where you’ll find some of the––wait for it––tallest trees that this park has to offer. The Redwood National Park is one of those places that just makes you feel small in comparison to nature. If you’re in California, it makes for the perfect road trip!
3. Take In All The Culture That San Francisco Has To Offer
If you’re not feeling up to nature walks, head over to San Francisco to take in all of the culture and vibrant scenery.
Make sure you get your camera out when you head over to the Golden Gate Bridge so you can take lots of pictures or walk the pedestrian walkway for a more intimate experience. After that, you can head over to Chinatown to eat some of the most authentic Chinese cuisines you’ve ever experienced.
Oh, and did you know that the fortune cookie was created in San Francisco?
So, make sure you grab a couple extra as souvenirs!
And, what’s a trip to San Francisco without hopping on a cable car to make your way up and down those infamous hills? Sit back and munch on your extra fortune cookies while you enjoy the scenery and streets lined with Victorian homes constructed way back in the 17th and 18th centuries.
If you’re into seafood (who isn’t, right), make sure you visit all of those remarkable seafood restaurants on the pier. San Francisco is one of those cities that you don’t really appreciate until you’re there––truly one of a kind.
2. Take A Trip To Key West For Views And Beach Activities
If you’re feeling tropical, but understandably can’t quite make it to the islands right now, Key West is the next best thing. Honestly, nothing compares to the scenery you’ll experience as you drive across the seven-mile bridge (nicknamed the floating bridge). Allow yourself to be captivated by the aquamarine and teal blue hues of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean as you make your way onto the island.
Key West is a city with endless possibilities to keep you busy. As you might imagine, people go there to experience a wide variety of beach activities such as snorkeling, dolphin encounters, deep-sea fishing, and much more!
If you’re the type of person who likes to try outside-of-the-box activities, you might want to take a kayaking trip through the beautifully intertwined mangrove trees or even the late Ernest Hemingway mansion.
1. Great Sand Dunes National Park
This is something you can’t miss because, well, let’s face it––did you even know that there were sand dunes in Colorado? Most people don’t know this paradoxical attraction exists because when you think sand dunes, you think the middle east.
But it’s all very real, as you’ll see as you slide down sand dunes with the snow-capped Rocky Mountains as a backdrop. You’ll also be able to take part in some hiking and camping if that’s your thing.
Some things that people like to do while visiting the sand dunes are sandboarding, sledding, and even taking a dip in the creek that lays right at the basin of the dunes—Medano Creek. Just know that the stream depends on the water flow that the area experiences. So if there’s any kind of drought, the creek will be very shallow or non-existent.
This is one of those places that you have to see at least once in your lifetime. Everything about it seems so unreal––sand dunes, wetland, and the Rocky Mountains all in the same stretch of land––simply amazing!
This is without a doubt one of the most unique places you’ll ever visit!
It’s no secret that we’re all trying our best to navigate the challenging times we’ve been experiencing. Understandably, most of us don’t feel comfortable traveling on an airplane right now, so these are trips that you can take with your family and friends by car and still practice social distancing while you sightsee.
These destinations are perfect to combine with your favorite CBD products, especially those that involve the grandiose elements of nature.
