Travel just isn't what it used to be. This time last year, if we're being entirely honest, I was in Scottsdale, Arizona soaking up the sun and running wild, several shots of Patron deep.  Nothing beats a little Scottsdale, Arizona debauchery in the winter. This year, the story is far different.  Since last March, travel "as we know it" has completely changed. Many wonder if it will ever go back.  Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, air travel was frowned upon because of the spread of the coronavirus. The past year has been no joke.

Looking for a new destination? How about going East?

Just announced today, a new direct flight to Nashville, Tennessee will begin from the Boise Airport in May of 2021. According to a statement from Allegiant Airlines:

As summer approaches, we expect a lot of pent-up demand for travel, especially for places where people can hike, fish, camp or visit the beach. With this expansion, we've added even more service to destinations known for their outdoor appeal. Now, with Allegiant's low-cost, nonstop service, travelers will have easy, affordable access to the cities they want to visit.

I have never had the chance to visit Nashville, but given the expectation that the climate around travel may mellow out a little bit soon, maybe now is the time.  It's the music capital of the world-- imagine all of the concerts that you could see in Nashville. There is so much fun and history there! Even better, the fares one-way will start as low as $69! That's comparable to a flight to Seattle, on a good day.

Flights can begin to be booked as soon as February 10th.
