Here are the places I’m traveling to when Covid ends and the best places to travel when Covid ends. These places are top of my travel list 2021!
We are all craving a little more sky, more nature and I know I’m craving a lot more ocean and exploration.
Northern New England and Coastal Maine has been calling my name since this whole thing began. My IG Explore feed is full of a very specific handful of things, one including stunning photos of Coastal New England. Maine has seemed like the perfect escape for for too long.
On my list is of course the most gorgeous town of Kennebunkport, a short drive from Boston. I traveled to Kennebunkport with my family three years ago and we stayed at The Lodge on the Cove which was perfect for families.
The quintessential town looks gorgeous every season of the year. It’s an instagrammer’s dream if you ask me!
I dream of taking a girlfriends get away to go Glamping at Sandy Pines Campground. Sandy Pines is close enough to the ocean that you can get the best of both worlds by camping and the beach. Wait… Camping? Just kidding, I’m definitely going Glamping.
Past the Kennebunks I dream of visiting a foodie delight in Portland before hitting the Arcadia National Park. My New England Pinterest Board is full of endless pins saved on Maine from climbing Cadillac Mountain to day tripping to Bar Harbor. The lighthouses of Maine are calling my name and maybe a cute lobster sweater or two 😉
Southern Italy, Venice and Rome
A long awaited, yearned for trip has been to visit Italy. We will see how international travel shakes out this year but I have our passports ready to go!
From the rolling hills of southern Italy to the beach in Postiano, I. want. it. all. I want to see and learn the best olive oil farms, pick fresh lemons off trees and learn to make pasta from the Italian gods.
I want to eat gelato in Venice and take a cliche gondola ride while someone sings in Italian. Exploring Rome and all it’s history will be amazing.
This trip will take more planning and I’ll be sure to share the planning journey with you along the way but my first international stop after Covid is Italy!

Our Vermont Trip is already booked for fall and I’m out of my mind excited. While the Fall is a traveler’s dream because of the stunning fall foliage, Vermont is gorgeous in all seasons. I’m yearning for the idea of maple syrup, moose sightings, leaf peeping and wearing all the plaid things for a whole week in Woodstock, Vermont.
Now that we’ve booked our dates I can share this absolutely adorable find, the Cabins at Fat Sheep Farm. The Farm has 5 cabins to choose from with some that even allow pets. Yes, Theo our Goldendoodle, is coming with us! It’s located just outside of Woodstock.
The cabins look adorable with plenty of space to stretch your legs. The farm allows guests to get in on the fun of feeding the sheep which sounds like special memories for my 3 and 8 year old.
This is the year I head to Sedona, Arizona. Sedona is rumored to be one of the most gorgeous places on earth with natural beauty.
You can rent a pink jeep and go exploring (yes even with kids!) and explore giant red rock spikes. Hiking a sunset chasing are top of our list.
The best times to visit are spring and fall.
I lived in Boston for nearly a decade and have never been to the island of Nantucket…what?! I know, it’s crazy. But a summer at Nantucket has been calling my name.
I’m dreaming of rose covered archways because is anything more quintessential that a rose covered archway in Nantucket, Massachusetts?
This summer I plan to take the ferry from Hyannis or Boston, hop off, order a summer cocktail at the White Elephant and life my best life.
Newport, Rhode Island and Prudence Island Rhode Island
Last but not least, as I do every year pandemic or not, I head to my favorite place on earth Newport, Rhode Island.
Last year we discovered Prudence Island and it was the perfect quarantine escape. I’d hands down stay there for another week or three again as this airbnb we rented had us right on the water with all the best family amenities.
I want to explore more of Newport and surrounding island’s nature this year with a seal tour, visiting this gorgeous flower farm and exploring the rest of Aquidneck Island. Staying at the Moore Houses, gorgeous cottages, is also on the list!
My complete guide to Newport is here.
