How to Enjoy an At Home Getaway

If you’re anything like us here at AurTravel, this pandemic has been a drag for many reasons, but number one – you miss traveling! Who ever thought we’d actually miss waiting in line at airport security or packing and unpacking your suitcase until it fits just right? There have been plenty of things we’ve missed out on these last few months due to the stay-at-home orders and the bans on traveling, but some of your favorite resorts and destinations are still here to provide you with tons of entertainment and joy right at home. We wanted to provide you with a master list of some of our AurTravel favorites. Let’s get started!

AMResorts (a previous AurTravel blog spotlight and fan favorite) has been posting a weekly Virtual Vacations series, featuring spa treatments at home, dreamy date nights, and ultimate house party guides. Each week has featured foodie favorites and cocktail recipes you can make right at home, along with different activities that relate to that week’s theme. These are all great ways to help make your home feel a little bit like an oasis.

Did COVID-19 keep you from seeing that long-awaited Broadway show you’ve been dreaming about for months, maybe even years? Well Broadway Plus is offering virtual hangs with some of today’s biggest stars on Broadway! From meet & greets to voice lessons to concerts, this company is doing everything they can to bring the theater to you. They have a stellar line up with talent from shows like Hamilton, Mean Girls, Aladdin, Waitress, and so many more. Another great thing about this company is that they’ll still be a great resource for all your Broadway escapades once all this craziness is over.

Just like always, Las Vegas has got tons to offer the eager (at-home) traveler. We know you’re already scrolling through Twitter and Facebook non-stop right now, so make sure to check out some at-home food or drink recipes from some of your favorite Vegas chefs and mixologists. After you make yourself dinner and a cocktail (or two), take a load off and tune in to some of the finest entertainment Vegas has to offer like the incredible artists of Cirque or a magic show with Mat Franco.

Have you recently found yourself a home-schooling parent as well as working full-time? Well Google Arts & Culture is a great way to keep your kiddos entertained and educated.  Over 25,000 museums and exhibits have been made available to the public so you can check out hundreds of masterpieces like Van Gogh’s Starry Night or Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring from the comfort of your couch.

Need something to keep you and your little ones a little more active during all this isolation? Hard Rock Hotels has some great free home workouts and exercises for the whole family. If you feel like getting your heart pumping and that brow sweat dripping, check out some of the Les Mills free at-home workouts. Or maybe you’re looking for something a little more relaxing to sooth your mind—take a look at the “Rock Om” series for some at-home guided meditation or yoga. Have some little ones at home with you that need to get some of that extra energy out while you’re trying to get some work done? Sounds like a great time to throw a little dance party in the living room.

So, if you’re feeling a little cooped up and in need of a little getaway, we hope one of these options can help get the job done for you. And as always, we are here for you, ready and waiting to help you plan your next adventure once we get the green light. Stay safe, wash your hands, and keep dreaming of your travel plans.

Rebekah Swerczek, AurTravelGrowing up in a small Texas town, Rebekah always had the desire to travel and discover as much of the world as possible. After high school, she took her chance. Rebekah joined a performing arts group based out of southern California called The Young Americans. She had the opportunity to perform, teach, and mentor young kids all around the world. With this group Rebekah was able to travel to 11 different countries. She also met her husband while performing with this group and eventually they settled down in Nebraska, but they still love to travel together any chance they get. So far their favorite places are Riviera Maya, Mexico and Northern Michigan, but they still have a few big ticket bucket list items they’d like to mark off their list including: New Zealand, Hawaii, and Scotland. Rebekah is also a huge animal lover and an avid Harry Potter fan. She is the newest addition to the AurTravel team and so happy to be here.
