sunny Santa Monica
St. Louis, sunny and warm(ish)
That’s my plan: rent an entire villa and go via private jet…
Roadtrippers.com is a great resource for trip planning. It’s also an app.
Jane: Editors thoughts on Canada, once open? Not domestic, but driveable, open, safe, fewer people, some remote.
Hi Tanya - I think they would be if we’re allowed to cross over
we cover Canada quite a bit on T+L digital
Arnie is editor of Travel Weekly
For those of us who had trouble signing on, could you do another introduction of the panelists before it's over? Thanks.
Jane, since air quality has improved with sheltering in place, are the editors placing extra emphasis on eco-friendly travel?

drive/travel/open space ... keep in mind that some remote/rural communities don't want outsiders coming in until, at least, there is locally available testing.
Do you think there will be testing or health checks of visitors upon arrival?
Digital Executive Editor, T+L and Departures
Does anyone have any insight into international air travel six months from now? What can we expect?
danger of flooding small cities and rural areas without tourism infrastructure with tourism?
That's what we're seeing on TravelingMom.com -- our readers are looking for camping, RV, national parks, ways to get outdoors.
I’m with CityPASS, based out of Victor, ID with Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks in our backyards. Both those parks are closed until further notice - mainly because our rural gateway towns to the parks (Jackson Hole, Cody…) don’t want to overburden our hospitals and healthcare facilities because the are not equipped to handle the influx.
Interestingly, our 17 best countries to visit with kids also is in our top 5 posts. No idea why on that.
Correction: Thanks for that insight, Meg!
HI Cindy- we are seeing inspiration/wanderlust stories doing well, too. People are always planning ahead so I would suggest that readers are looking for winter or spring 2021 travel

I'm sorry I have to leave early... truly great content! Thank you so much for organizing!
For our European travel-planning site, traffic on our Germany pages is holding up much better than traffic for destinations like Paris, Venice, and Rome. I'm not sure why--maybe it's because Germany has been doing a better-than-average job of dealing with the coronavirus?
State parks more open than national, so looking at state parks in own state and other states. Cabins often rent by week in parks, so do not have multiple priors, and easier to do a clean and then stay put and do day drives.
I was on a cruise Facebook page and the cruisers were totally raring to go and were hoping their cruises for May, June, July were still happening.
Chris, good to hear from you! No secret - my clock just runs slow.
Re Eurooe: I think it's important to remember that, for Europeans, Europe is domestic travel. (And some of us SATW members have a lot of European readers--about half of our site's audience is European, even though we're Americans and are published from the U.S.)
Am missing the NYC flyover by Blue Angels to stay here on this valuable webinar.
I agree, Courtney. Committed travelers are willing to take the risk. It's the same for the Disney fans -- they can't wait for the parks to open so they can go back.
There will be some that will go into a destination full throttle and some that will be more cautious or will wait.
Just look at the CA beaches...there will be people who just don't get it.
I just can’t wait to return to Canada!
Must run. Great panel. Thanks all!
I'd love to see treatments on how we can change tourism's impact on culture, environment, etc.
Risk is relevant and a matter of perspective. As a Canadian, when I think of a country that's ripe for possible unrest and quaking from economic changes, it's not Madagascar that I'm concerned about visiting.....
A lot of small places attractive to visitors because they have not been hard hit by the virus, also do not want an immediate influx of visitors because of limited rural health care systems.
What Barbara Marr just said. Laos has completely closed its borders, for example.
Fendi sold out of their masks!!
True…but I think now more than ever we’ll see these appear on runways in a very real way
I have often worn a mask on flights, especially to Asia. Now I wouldn't be the subject of stares for being an oddball.
