Staycations Close to Home, by State

A perfect Staycation: Canoe trip along the quiet waters of Kennebunkport

We love America, and travel to the many exciting places and destinations that the USA and Canada offer. We also enjoy being out on the open roads of America, like cross-country trips on Route 66, The Mother Road.

But the travel industry has changed dramatically in a short period of time in 2020 due to the worldwide outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. And your travel plans have probably been impacted.

Now, in 2020, with the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak across America, travelers are seeking safe vacation alternatives. Cruise travel is virtually impossible, and airline travel is difficult. Travel to international destinations is limited. Consequently, many individuals and families are exploring the open roads of America, driving its scenic byways and enjoying national parks and other open spaces.

And many are planning trips and vacations close to home ... "Staycations". Included below are 128 destinations, roads, cities and attractions that our staff have personally visited, and enjoyed! Some of these are reviewed on this website, others on our other travel-related websites (listed at the bottom of this page).

Perhaps you and your family might also enjoy these "Staycations" !
