There’s no arguing that travel has been transformed over the last year and that Americans are ready to travel again. In 2020, many USTOA member tour operators focused on domestic programs with proper health and safety protocols.
This year should be even more fruitful. From exploring Utah’s National Parks to sunning on Hawaiian beaches and kayaking through Alaska, there are hundreds of stateside options for travelers.
