The global pandemic shifted our interest towards staycations, but that doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be safe during your travels. Many local attractions experienced a huge boom in the time of corona, and here’s how you can avoid big crowds when visiting them.

Do Your Research

Before picking the destination you’re going to visit, search for impressions of other travelers online. Travel blogs and Tripadvisor are a great source of unbiased travel reviews, and they’ll give you insight into the place you want to visit and what to expect once you’re there.

Pick the Right Time

Local attractions are popular weekend getaways because that’s the only free time most people have on their hands. You should visit them during work days when possible since you won’t have to deal with big families and organized tour groups.

Come Prepared

Even if you pick the right spot and the perfect time to visit it, you should still come with a face mask on and hand sanitizers in your bag. Maintaining social distancing is also crucial, and you shouldn’t remove your mask as long as you’re surrounded by a huge crowd of people.
