Travel Before the Summer Ends

Even though summer is ending, there’s still time to plan for a last-minute trip. In this week’s Wildwood Towers Apartments Blog, we’ve got a few ways that you can get out of your Arlington, VA apartment and travel.


Heading out into nature is a good way to get out of your apartment. You don’t necessarily need to leave the state to go camping, but you are most certainly welcome to. Plan where you’re going to camp, the duration of the trip, and the food you’re going to be eating. Don’t forget to bring the necessities like toiletries, sunscreen, and bug spray!

The point of camping is to enjoy the beauty of nature, so keep technology use to a minimum. Use your phone for photos and emergency contacts; otherwise, keep it in your pack and socialize with your friends.

Travel Abroad

If you haven’t been outside of the United States, use this month as an opportunity to go somewhere you’ve always wanted to — or take the time before next summer to plan a great trip. There are many destinations to visit all over the world, so take your time to figure out where you want to go. Plane tickets can be expensive, so do your research and be patient. Eventually, you’ll be able to find tickets at a reasonable price. It is important to remember that you will be a guest in a foreign land, so be courteous and respectful of their customs and culture. If you are unsure what those customs and cultures are, the internet is a perfect resource.

These are just a couple of ways that you can travel. Traveling can expand your horizons and help you develop more creativity, so we encourage you to take advantage and see the world!
