Hi Lovies,

With summer almost coming to end, I can't help but be sad that I didn't get to travel any where. Obviously due to Covid-19, traveling now would not be a good idea. I know a lot of you out there feel the same way and it's better to be safe than sorry, right? Well there's still a way to get the travel bug out your system! You can still do a lot of things within your own city, driving distance, or by public transportation that is safe and fun. Here's my wanderlust list!

1. Book at stay at a hotel

Right now hotel stays have dropped in prices and most are doing lower percentage of capacity as to follow social distancing rules. You can find one that has a pool and enjoy a little getaway, some relaxation and fun in the sun right in your own city.

2. Rent an Airbnb

If you're still not ready to be in contact with a larger amount of people, you can always rent an Airbnb. Definitely find one that has a pool and have a mini vacation. It's great for family fun, couples or even a girls trip!

3. Indoor and Outdoor Water Parks

If you love the water, then visiting an indoor/outdoor water park might be the way to go. There are quite a few just driving distance from NYC like Kalahari Resorts and Convention, Great Wolf Lodge, and tons more. The majority of these water park resorts are following strict social distancing rules and are very safe. You can book a room at the resort, stay a couple of days and enjoy access to the water parks the entire time. Some of them even have Adult only sections if you don't want to be around kids. Most of these places are open all year round so you can even enjoy them during the winter season as well.

4. Camping

If you're the outdoorsy type and like "roughing it", camping could be the getaway for you. There's a bunch of places in Upstate New York with great camp sites. You can do fun activities like fishing, boating, hiking and more. Or just enjoy a quiet peaceful time, making smores by your camp fire.

5. Day Trips

If you don't drive or own a car, there are still tons of things you can do by using public transportation. You can take the trains, buses or ferries to places like your favorite beaches, lakes, amusement parks (Great Adventures, Coney Island etc), state parks, fruit picking (apple, pumpkin, peach, strawberry depending on the season) and more. Don't let my having a car stop you from enjoying your summer.

6. Dress the part

If none of the above are an option for you, sometimes just dressing like you're going on vacation is surprisingly gratifying. I decided to put this look together from Lane Bryant to hop on the Ferry and  take on the sites of NYC. This Button Down Tie-Front Cami and Pull On Wide Leg Pants had me feeling cool and chic. Topping the look off with these Espadrilles Platform Sandals and I was looking like I should be on a cruise! Whether you have a backyard, terrance, balcony or space you can designate. Turn that space into a cool place where you can relax, chill, possibly catch some rays and decompress. Don't forget to dress the part, trust me, you won't regret it!

Well there you have it, those are my tips for curing the travel bug. Let me know in the comments below if any of these tips were helpful for you and if you have any tips of your own you wish to share. Don't forget to check out Lane Bryant's new arrivals for some stylish finds!
