We're back! Idaho and the rest of the nation is feeling good and it seems like we're super excited to get back to travelling. Memorial Day Weekend with the exception of last year has always been and extremely popular travel weekend. This year AAA is predicting "More than 37 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home for a holiday getaway." 37 million is a lot of people, how many of those travelers are from our neck of the woods? The AAA estimate says that "202,000 Idahoans will be hitting the road, that's a 60% increase from 2020 but 13% less than 2019 so not everybody is quite ready to pack a suitcase.

Are you traveling? where are you headed? Is it a McCall weekend? Are you sick of McCall because you've been there done that throughout the pandemic? Are you the type to head to the Oregon coast? Seattle? The Redwood Forest? Yellow Stone National Park? or will you take the kids to Lagoon in Salt Lake City for the extended weekend?   .

According to AAA Idahoans are headed to warm-weather destinations like Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Orlando. I'm biased so I will tell you that if you want to stay on the west coast and like the shorter flight then San Diego is the move, especially if you have a family. Between the beach, The San Diego Zoo and Sea World you will have plenty of things to do in a city that is clean and beautiful. If you don't mind the flight time then Orlando is the move. Personally a cabin that is within walking distance to the lake in McCall or Cascade is my goal this year. Where are you going?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
