Wondering where should you go on your next trip? Let us give you some inspiration! We take a look at where we are planning to travel to next week, next month, and next year. We invite you to come along!
Where to Go Next Week
Celebrate Native American Heritage Month
November is Native American Heritage month and we are hoping to learn more about their rich history and traditions. Tour the Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado and learn all about the Pueblo people who built their city into the cliffs; walk the Trail of Tears, a stretch of road that crosses nine states that thousands of Native Americans were forced to walk as they were removed from their land in the 1800s; or visit the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) which is spread across three different museums: the museum on the National Mall in Washington D.C., the George Gustav Heye Center in New York City, and the Cultural Resources Center in Suitland, Maryland.
Pirate Tip: Can't get away this month? That's ok! During November 18-27 you can also stream The National Museum of the American Indians' Native Cinema Showcase which includes new films and conversations with filmmakers to learn more about Indigenous communities throughout the Western Hemisphere and Arctic.
Where to Go Next Month
Hit the Slopes
Oh boy, do we love a good ski holiday! There’s nothing quite like swooshing down the mounting, churring up fresh powder, and ending the day with a nice cup of hot cocoa as your warm up by the fire. We know that ski holidays can be expensive, but if you are looking for some serious savings we can recommend checking out Winter Park in Colorado. Located only an hour from Denver, we've found nonstop flights from $35 and accommodations that fit your budget.
Pirate Tip: Love the snow, but not a fan of the slopes? Book a luxe cabin in the snow like this one HERE.
Escape the Cold
If snow isn’t your thing, why not travel somewhere warmer? If you want to stay stateside, book a trip to the strip. We have been seeing amazing hotel deals and flights to Las Vegas. If you live on the East Coast, we recommend heading to Florida for a bit of sun.
Want to get away from the US for a bit this winter? No problem, we recommend taking a trip to the Caribbean. There are plenty of islands that are welcoming US tourists with a negative COVID test.
Pirate Tip: Flights to Puerto Rico for this winter are currently starting at $67 round trip on full-service carriers such as United, American, and jetBlue. That's over $200 off normal priced tickets! Book HERE.
Where to Go Next Year
Let’s be honest, 2020 has been a wild ride. With so many trips and events that were canceled this year, we want to do as much as we can in 2021. And with the hope of being able to travel safely to Europe again soon, more and more opportunities seem to be on the horizon for 2021. First things first, we plan to knock off a few items on our travel bucket lists.
Going on an African safari has been on the top of our lists for a while, and we think 2021 is the year to do it! The prime time to go is during the dry season, between June and September. Because safari tours themselves can easily set you back $2,000 or more, we recommend doing it the pirate way and book a day tour to keep your trip more affordable. Book a day tour of Nairobi National Park starting at $56 a day or visit an elephant orphanage for $40 a day.
Pirate Tip: Book for September at the end of the season when prices are lower. We’ve seen a slight drop in flight prices for September, but nothing too significant yet. Don’t worry, we will keep you updated if we find any amazing deals.
Another experience we are hoping to cross off our bucket lists is the Northern Lights. We would to experience the Aurora Borealis in the most unique way possible, like visiting an island where humans are outnumbered by polar bears!
Pirate Tip: Fly into Oslo or Stockholm for cheaper airfare. From there, you can easily book a cheap flight with Norwegian air to see the lights.
