Best travel destinations to switch off

Demand for travel has more than picked up, meaning it’s the season to explore as another summer fades into fall. If we’ve learned anything from the current COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that our own backyards are ripe for discovery, with worthy natural beauty in every state. Plus, being offline and on the go is a balm in itself. We know that reducing screen time has many benefits, ranging from improved sleep to deep personal connections, greater presence, increased productivity and ability to learn, among others. And according to the Mayo Clinic, time in nature also has a number of purported benefits, such as reduced stress, reduced heart rate and blood pressure, and improved ability to concentrate.

All of this to say that we believe it’s time to plan your next getaway. While exploring faraway destinations is always fun, domestic travel is not only safer, but much easier in today’s world; plus, there is so much to explore near you.
