If you want to know what a driving vacation is really like during a pandemic, come to Reno, Nev., with me.
You probably won’t find the 788-mile drive from Spokane, Wash., on any top 10 lists. It’s a two-day journey through the farmland and mountains of Oregon and Idaho. But if you’re looking for an idea of what a driving vacation is really like, there may be no better gauge.
For example, how are other travelers treating the risk of a coronavirus infection? A drive through the American West will answer that question. What about hotels? Travel down to Reno to find out. Same thing for restaurants. And, of course, the million-dollar question: Is it safe to take a driving vacation now?
