OMG I need some Advice. PLEASE! Step brat will be with us for two long ass weeks in July. I can HARDLY stand the disrespectful brat for the weekend two weeks will be pure hell. 

To keep my sanity and avoid murder charges I need to get away for a few days when the brat is here.  I'm looking at mid July and I live in New York State so would like to stay in the northeast area.  Hoping covid virus is gone or good enough to travel. 

Any suggestions on where I can go solo and still have a good time for a few days? Unfortunately I don't have any friends that could travel with me and my only living Relative is a elderly aunt who is a germ freak so not sure with Covid she would want me to visit that soon.

Is there an old friend from college you can visit? Former coworker? The Coast will be expensive this time of year, but what about The Finger Lakes? Philadelphia? A cottage in Vermont? Maybe book a series of spa treatments so you'll be busy each day? Heck, treat yourself to a massage and room service at a hotel in a nearby town.

I do have a good friend in Florida who would love to see me BUT due to work I can only get away for a max of four days and it's really not worth the airfare $$$


I could fill up a day at the spa but who knows if they will be open by then

If you don't mind being alone and can afford it, rent a small place on the Finger Lakes for a week or weekend. Gorgeous lakes - and most things will likely be open by then (I'm in NY too). Or in the Adirondacks - very little COVID up there.

Finger lakes is a good idea never been but always wanted to. I love the Adirondacks but would be fearful hiking alone
