The 2021 spring break season is reminding everyone of family vacations and new destinations that they might have missed out on when vacationing took a pause in 2020. But travel in 2021 is ready to relieve your cabin fever.
Whether you’re ready for a long break to a faraway destination or want to dip your toes back in with a weekend staycation, Diamond Resorts wants to help you reclaim your 2020 adventures and start planning your travel in 2021. If you book with Diamond by April 30, you can save on making those vacation ideas into a reality*.
Here are a few trips we want to do-over in 2021.
1. Reconnect with loved ones.
Family vacations are the perfect way to reconnect after a year without the usual birthday and holiday visits to grandparents and cousins. A clan-wide get-together in Orlando is just the event to look forward to. Diamond Resorts has spacious units where families can share meals together and relax after some fun in the sun. Make a day of going to the beach or take an excursion to see the beauty of central Florida at Lake Louisa State Park, and then return to your resort to watch a movie and share a meal. Planning the perfect family vacation for 2021 will help raise everyones spirits and create new lifelong memories.
2. Get away with friends.
After so many Zoom hangouts and virtual interactions, now is the time to plan some quality time with your good friends. From the lights of the glamourous strip and fantastic restaurants to the funk of Freemont Street and the breathtaking landscapes of Red Rock Canyon , a trip to Las Vegas has something for everyone. This desert oasis has vacation ideas to keep everyone smiling.
3. Put romance on your list.
After a year at home, adventuring with the special person in your life can feel like a second honeymoon, and some 2020 newlyweds still need to take t heir first! A Hawaiian escape will inspire the romance you need, from the swaying palms and sweeping volcanos to peaceful sunsets over the ocean. If you want to make up for lost time with someone special, head to Kauai or Maui for days of white beaches, delicious food and vistas that help you fall in love all over again.
4. Prioritize wellness with a spiritual escape.
Sedona, Arizona is known for its peace, tranquility and stunning red sandstone backdrop. If your travel in 2021 focuses on reaching inner peace, this is the spot to explore . With hundreds of hiking trails , you can breathe in the fresh air, and then return to your accommodations for plenty of room to stretch through a yoga session with a view to meditate on. It’s the perfect place to salute the sun.
5. Discover classic Americana in Appalachia.
Whether you’re looking for a family vacation or a solo escape to the mountains, Bent Creek Golf Village in Gatlinburg, Tennessee places you in a homey heartland. Explore a scenic bike ride or hike in the Smokey Mountains or break out the clubs for a round or two of golf, and then feast on some comfort food with local barbecue. A cabin among the trees is just the ticket to forget about the world for a while.
