JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Spring Break is just around the corner and a new AAA travel survey revealed that 60% of Floridians are uncomfortable traveling during the pandemic.
Their main concerns are:
- Fears of getting sick from COVID-19
- New strains of the virus
- The number of COVID-19 infections around the country
Nearly half of Floridians say they are comfortable staying in a hotel, but just 32% say they feel comfortable getting on a plane.
The vast majority -- 83% -- feel most comfortable traveling by car.
In Florida and Georgia, there are plenty of staycation options that are family friendly and don’t require getting on a plane.
Alison Peters-Carlson with Jax4Kids joined us on The Morning Show to offer some suggestions.
One idea -- enjoy the great outdoors!
Visiting a national park is a great COVID-safe thing to do. Learn more about National Parks here.
Crooked River State Park in St. Marys is hosting a photo contest through Nov. 30. Find out more about that here.
