Great Destinations to Visit in 2022 By:  Brianna Korb Sculpted Escapes

 

At this point, you might be so desperate to go somewhere, anywhere, that the destination itself  is almost an afterthought. We completely understand, and we’re always up for a new place to  explore or an old favorite to revisit and see what’s changed. We’re still, of course, navigating  the unique circumstances that the COVID-19 pandemic has ushered into our lives. With those  factors in mind, these destinations stand out for 2022. 

Alaska 

After a lost summer season in 2020, the wild frontiers of Alaska were able to salvage a partial  season last year with great success. If not back to “normal,” this year at least figures to offer an  entire summer of adventure — although you don’t have to limit your Alaska explorations to the  warmer months. Alaska’s autumn colors are just as spectacular as any you’ll see in the Lower  48, and the longer nights increase your chances of spotting Northern Lights. Cruising is the most  common way people get around, and the Inside Passage does indeed showcase the state’s  spectacular landscapes and wildlife, but it’s not the only way. Boutique lodges can be a  fabulous way to explore Alaska’s interior and less-trafficked waterways.

The British Isles 

The UK and Ireland have recently done away with the requirement for pre-departure testing for  fully vaccinated travelers, making for one less barrier between you and a great vacation.  Visitors to the UK still need to present a negative test on Day 2 in the country, but those can  now be rapid antigen tests rather than PCR. That makes cities such as London, Edinburgh, and  Dublin, as well as the lovely countryside you’ll find throughout England, Scotland, Wales,  Northern Ireland, and the Republic of Ireland, more easily accessible for your international  getaway this year.

Hawaii 

As a small island state, Hawaii has understandably been careful with COVID restrictions through  the pandemic. However, the governor has invited travelers back, and recent relaxations make it  easier to get in. Domestic travelers who are fully vaccinated no longer need a negative test, and  unvaccinated domestic travelers can enter with a negative test. Going between islands no  

longer requires any testing, so a multi-island itinerary is once again a breeze that shows off all  Hawaii has to offer. Hawaii has long provided a tropical paradise you don’t need a passport to  go to; now, it’s a haven from onerous entry protocols.

Egypt 

After the fallout from the 2011 revolution, Egypt has re-emerged as a popular destination in  recent years. Open throughout most of the pandemic, it’s been one of the go-to international  spots for travelers, who have had all those antiquities primarily to themselves. Few sights are as  imposing and awe-inspiring as the pyramids and Sphinx towering above you against the desert  backdrop. But the hits don’t stop there. At Sakkara, you can view an even older pyramid, the  Step Pyramid of Djoser, and the ruins of the Old Kingdom capital at Memphis. At Luxor, you’ll  find more than 400,000 square feet of well-preserved temples on the banks of the Nile.

The Rookies 

It’s ski season, and the slopes of Park City, Jackson Hole, and the resorts that stretch up and  down Colorado are calling. Here you can be outdoors and do exercise during a season when we  spend much of our time shut up indoors to get away from the miserable weather. Add  mountains, though, and we can’t get enough of winter. The Rockies have plenty going on in all  seasons, with summer bringing food and music festivals and the general pleasantness of being  in the great outdoors with great weather and beautiful scenery.
