So many of us long for a return to travel but are hampered by closed borders, government restrictions, and legitimate concerns about staying safe. Over the past several months Great Departures has expanded its partner network of locally operated accommodation, tour providers and experiences here in the US to craft a collection of local, independent getaways that combine the freedom and exhilaration of travel with the need to stay as safe as possible in this challenging time.
Please feel free to explore any of the sample itineraries you will find below that focus on the unique combination of food, wine and nature in our home state of California by clicking on the images. We can also create an itinerary with the perfect combination of destination and experiences for you anywhere in the US, from exploring horse country in Kentucky or glamping at a national park to settling into a vacation home on the Maine coast. The common thread will be unique experiences, private transportation and touring, the best of local accommodation, and an emphasis on safety to let you return to travel with peace of mind.
