Bring Back Your Wanderlust

With the news of a COVID-19 vaccine being dispersed in 2021, many travelers are hoping to get back to their favorite destinations as soon as the virus subsides. Thanks to the U.S. Travel Association's "Let's Go There" campaign, many Americans are taking this time to plan their future travel, reigniting the wanderlust and feelings of anticipation a vacation can bring. As 2020 comes to an end, have you started thinking of your future travel plans? Here are a few ideas to get those creative juices flowing. Just remember to book your adventure soon to get your ideal destination and dates!

Tropical Fun Down South

After those long winter months, a little island-inspired vacation may be just what you need. Calypso Cay, a Caribbean-themed resort, is situated just south of Orlando in Kissimmee, Florida. This bright and colorful, family-friendly resort is the perfect place to relax any time of the year. With guest suites ranging from studios to three-bedroom villas, families can enjoy all the comforts of home along with three outdoor pools, two hot tubs, a tiki bar and grill, sand volleyball and much more! Orlando's best-known attractions - its theme parks - are welcoming guests with new health and safety protocols. Visit Orlando, the official tourism association for Orlando, is a great resource for up-to-date information about the local attractions, events and even tips for planning your vacation!

Quick Tip - When you're planning your trip, make sure to think about meals. With full kitchens in the suites, your family can enjoy their favorite home cooked meals. Plus, many local supermarkets have delivery services, so make your vacation easier by ordering online and having your groceries delivered to your door!

Off to the Ozarks

If you're looking for something more centrally located, then look no further than Stormy Point Village. It may be situated in Branson, Missouri, but when you step foot onto this property, you'll think you're in a Cape Cod fishing village complete with the beautiful Table Rock Lake at its center point. The resort is made up of more than 200 standalone cottages, each equipped with a full kitchen and private porch for relaxing! There is plenty to do nearby including the well-known Silver Dollar City theme park, water park and camp ground. Stormy Point has $11.5 million in amenities including indoor and outdoor pools, the Pirate's Harbor Water Park, restaurants and lounge areas and a 63-foot lighthouse. It's an ideal vacation destination for any family!

Quick Tip - Each cottage has a fireplace, so don't forget to pack some board games and cards for the family! Or snuggle up under a warm blanket and read a book as you watch the flames glow in the evenings.
