The sinister-sounding buzzword “revenge travel” sums up the determination of many travelers that want to take their revenge on the virus and travel again once it is safe to do so – and the sweeter the adventure, the better! Some say that 2021 could mark this millennium’s new “roaring ‘20s,” and with all the pent up energy to travel and physically reconnect with the world, it makes perfect sense!
It seems the pandemic is not changing our motivations as much as it’s causing us to prioritize them differently. People are desperate to explore, connect, and mark the milestones that were muted in 2020. Proper celebrations with loved ones have been paused for too long, and we stand ready to spring up from behind the screen and leap into the arms of our family and friends. Whether it’s a local hot spot, a quick beach break, or a major expedition, happiness correlates with the prospect of an upcoming adventure.
With many states still in lockdown yet a vaccine giving us hope, it’s not too soon to browse ideas for getaways and make up for a missed birthday celebration, a milestone anniversary, or special family occasion. Tourist sites and hotels across the region await travelers with scaled capacity, mandatory masks and stringent sanitation routines, not to mention a welcome change of scenery. These unfailingly loyal operators remain open and enthusiastically welcome guests.
