Another thing you should consider is what you can do when you finally get to your destination. It’s best to look for a destination which can immediately offer you activities you’re interested in. If you’re a nature lover, for instance, you might be hard-pressed to find challenging nature walks in the city jungle of New York. Likewise, urban travelers might be intimidated by the rugged outdoors found in Montana or the swampy beauty of Louisiana.
Choosing Your Mode of Transportation
Determining how you travel can also make a huge difference with your plans.
If you’re greatly worried about time constraints and you’d like to make the most out of the last days of summer vacation, traveling by plane is the best option. It’s also one of the more expensive options but if you stay away from the business or first class section then you can probably save a bit more funds for additional pocket money.
For those with adventurous spirits, traveling by car or using a rented RV is something you should consider. Traveling hours are longer, but you also get to enjoy beautiful scenery on the road, meet new friends pursuing a similar route, and discover new places of interest as you get nearer your destination. Make sure, however, you take all the safety precautions when traveling.
For a more leisurely and luxurious way of traveling, consider traveling by train or by taking a cruise to reach your destination.
Make a list. Yes, you’re intelligent, you’ve a great memory, and you’re organized but if you want to be sure about packing everything you need, make a list. Making one won’t hurt. Find out weather conditions in your destination to ensure you bring appropriate clothing. Lastly, make sure you’ve got stuff for sun protection with you in your hand-carry bag.
Enjoy the last days of summer!
