September 27, 2020, is World Tourism Day, and as such we want to give you some ideas for vacations, getaways, and adventures in 2021. The last year has been unpredictable for all of us, and the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that many of us have to postpone or even cancel our travel plans. While there is still a level of uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus, travel restrictions have been eased to a certain degree, and although this is subject to change at the discretion of each nation, we can start to look forward to the future. To give you some inspiration about potential vacations next year, we’ve put together just a few ideas of places to travel to in 2021.
What to expect when you travel in 2021
The reality is that none of us can really know what to expect while the pandemic is being dealt with. However, we can, and should still plan to travel in 2021. Whether you plan a summer vacation, a winter getaway, or an adventure in the spring, 2021 travel will be wholly dependent on the number of cases in each country. Nevertheless, we can still book rentals and flights, and should the need arise, postponing our vacations rather than canceling them is an option we should all consider when we’re looking for places to travel to for a vacation in 2021.
Visit Utah, one of the best places to travel to all year-round
Utah is an eclectic state, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts year-round.

In Utah, you and the whole family can look forward to an action-packed vacation surrounded by swathes of incredible natural beauty.
Places to travel to in New Zealand in 2021
New Zealand’s natural beauty knows no bounds, and it is not remotely surprising that this stunning country has been used to bring both Middle Earth and Narnia to life on the big screen over the last couple of decades. As well as boasting the Hobbiton movie set, one of the more unusual things to do in New Zealand, the whole country has incredible beaches, such as Cathedral Cove, as well as mountains that even the most intrepid explorer would marvel at. During family vacations in New Zealand, some of the best places to travel to include Rotorua, Milford Sound, or the Tongariro National Park to truly take in the stunning vistas and natural beauty unique to this amazing vacation destination.
Discover the wildlife in Botswana’s Okavango Delta when you travel in 2021
If we’ve learned anything over the last few months of uncertainty, its that we should pursue all our dreams and goals at the soonest possibility, and what could be more “bucket list” worthy than seeing some of the incredible African wildlife in Botswana? Elephants, a variety of big cats, and more wander through the Okavango Delta, making vacations in Botswana even more appealing when planning where to travel in 2021. Of all the places to visit in the world, somewhere that reminds us of the incredible natural world is without doubt one of the best vacation spots.
Enjoy a beach vacation in Mexico for a 2021 getaway
From Mayan ruins to vibrant towns and cities, the Riviera Maya is the perfect place to travel to for a beach vacation. In Mexico, beaches are the order of the day, and no vacations in Mexico would be complete without exploring this stunning coastline. Without doubt one of the best travel destinations with its golden beaches, turquoise waters, and even an underwater museum for a scuba diving adventure, you’ll want to swap your house for one of the beach houses along the Riviera Maya after a stay here.
The hills are alive with things to do in Austria
A landlocked country, Austria doesn’t have the coastal delights of Mexico or New Zealand, however, there are stunning lakes, and mind-mindbogglingly beautiful mountains. Anyone who’s seen The Sound of Music will remember the opening shot of the mountains, and any summer vacations in Austria can be spent exploring them, and winter vacations can be spent skiing in them. If you’re looking for culture when you’re compiling your list of places to travel and things to do in Austria, Vienna and Salzburg are two of the most beautiful cities in Europe, steeped in history, music, and art.
