Solo Summer Road Tripper: The Best American Sites to Visit Since You’re Too Afraid to Fly (Or Be Near Anyone)

It might not seem like it, but summer has officially started. Sure, things are a little different because of the ongoing pandemic. But that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying as much of the summer as possible. That is, as long as you bring along a mask, continue social distancing, and just use common sense when you’re around crowds of fellow tourists.

One of the biggest differences between this summer and years past is that, unless you fly for work, air travel to another country is probably not on your agenda. This is why summer 2020 is the perfect time to take that road trip you’ve been planning. The U.S. is full of amazing, exciting destinations that you’ve probably never visited. Hop in your car, set your GPS, and head out ASAP. All you need is a suitcase, a camera, and a sense of adventure.

To help point you in the right direction, we made a list of some of our favorite destinations in America. Not only are they some of the most popular tourist attractions, but they’re all far away from crowded cities (although many of the sites will probably be crowded). Check them all out below.
