Travel, usually by vehicle, to smaller family-type local and regional attractions is enjoying an upsurge in COVID-19 times over longer trips to larger, brassier cities with Disney-like group formats and crowds.

Publicity on behalf of more homespun, nearer destinations has increased in my inbox. Recent statistics indicate Americans are taking 41 percent more road trips than in the past, to attractions nearer their homes. But, because of sometimes sudden closures, always check the website for availability, before departing home.
