Road-trip Destinations in California While Social Distancing

Yosemite Mariposa 
Mariposa County, the home of Yosemite National Park, is an ideal destination for social distancing. Not only are there wide-open spaces and gorgeous vistas to enjoy, there are several lodging options that are self-contained so there is minimal interaction with other guests.

The Redwoods in Yosemite is a collective of more than 130 vacation rentals INSIDE Yosemite National Park. The homes range from studios to seven bedrooms and are ideal for couples, friends and families. The Explorer Cabins at the Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite are a great way to experience the privacy of your own modern, two-bedroom cabin with high-end amenities, a kitchen and an inviting porch. The Cabins are a short walk from the main lodge and guests can take advantage of the resort’s restaurants, pool and spa if so desired. The Cabins will be available to book by mid-summer
Buellton in Santa Barbara Wine Country
For your next social distancing road trip, head to Buellton (located 2 hours north of Los Angeles). Visitors to the area can still experience a true Buellton wine country getaway as they would have any other time, as restaurants and wineries were already offering outdoor services and continue to do so. Private wine tastings in vineyards, dining al fresco, outdoor museums are all a part of the Buellton experience. Flying Flags RV Resort is the perfect social distancing lodging option, with parking spots for travelers who bring their own RV but also include over 50+ lodging options including vintage trailers, safari tents, cabins and more for those interested in glamping. 
Hideaway Santa Barbara 
Skip the big brand hotels and enjoy your stay at the boutique 9 room property Hideaway Santa Barbara. Hideaway is only a few blocks away from the beach, and the popular Funkzone area in downtown Santa Barbara full of wine tasting rooms for guests to enjoy. The hotel property has instituted a service called Zingle which interacts with customers pre, during and post stay via text. Through Zingle they can do contactless check-ins, check-outs, and concierge services. This allows Hideaway to still offer the high level of customer service their guests have come to expect from a Kirkwood property, while at the same time keeping guests and staff safe.
