After the 'Rona Road Trips

Updated: Jun 1

Camp is cancelled...now what? Summer 2020 is certainly not looking the way we planned. After what seems like a million days of quarantine, home schooling, cooking and cleaning and trying to keep it all together, it’s time to pivot and plan a break!

While most of us are not okay with getting on a plane right now, here are some great northeast road trip ideas for romantic getaways, family trips, girls or guys trips…a little something to choose from for everyone. So, let’s try and salvage a little bit of summer.

Stay safe!
