COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. Cities, states, and even entire countries have all come together to practice social distancing to help keep the ones we love safe and healthy.

No matter what you make of the current events that are happening around us, there is no denying that all of us have had to make adjustments to cope with the “new normal.” As we move into summer, this theme is also going to continue when it comes to vacation planning.

Whether you’re flying to your destination or planning a local trip, there are a few things people are doing to ensure the safety of their loved ones.

Flying or driving?  Although this decision is completely up to you, some people are choosing to cancel their flights and hit the highway. When you choose to drive, you share the same air with family members as opposed to strangers, you can open a window for fresh air any time you want, and of course the potential of having to go through health checks might be something to consider as well.  Of course flying is still the safest way to travel, but if you feel more at ease driving, then please do whatever puts your mind at ease.

Look for a kitchenette when booking.  When it comes time to book the accommodations for your vacation, many are looking for hotels with kitchenettes or full kitchens to avoid eating out. Although most restaurants are following strict guidelines to ensure social distancing, some feel there is nothing like a home cooked meal to make you feel safe at your “home away from home.” 

Opt for outdoor adventure! Sometimes the best way to practice social distancing is by being in a wide open space, so take advantage of a vacation with lots of outdoor activities this year, like a beach trip! When you stay with us at Sun Tower Hotel & Suites you have the beach just steps away.

Here at Sun Tower Hotels & Suites, your health and safety are our biggest concern. We have taken extra measures to make sure our property is sanitized and are taking all recommended precautions. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your stay, please don’t hesitate to ask.

See you on the beach!
