Go somewhere where you can do outdoor stuff. Denver has a lot of parks and trails outside you can do. I went to the lake that was outdoor. Honestly as long as it’s not a hot spot you should be fine.

The virtue signaling on this post is insane, but expected by now. As a “terrible person” who just traveled due to a family emergency, Puerto Rico is a good option. A bit of a pain with the tracing getting in, but once you’re there, they’re having extremely nominal issues with containment (it’s safe) and have few actually enforced restrictions. Caribbean vacation with no passport required.

None. Stay home and stop making flight attendants and service workers risk their lives because you are bored.

OP flying contributes nothing to the flight crew keeping their jobs. That is pennies compared to billions of profits mismanaged by the airlines over the past several years Airlines spent 20-30+ billions in profit buying up their stocks to bump up their price instead of saving up for a rainy day fund. Covid hits and they ask you, me, and the American taxpayers for a bailout of similar amounts. Then they say they'll start laying off their employees as soon as the government freeze ends in October. Let them go bankrupt for mismanagement and have better entrepreneurs buy the company and manage it better. Also don't risk the lives of others by taking unnecessary travel. Be a good person.

"Quarantine is not that hard"? VP2, you really need to get out of your privileged bubble complete with indoor/oudoor pools, golf courses and FT house staff, and smell the reality.

Drive to a place and use the airline credits for hotel credits instead. The hotel experience is much safer, and you’re likely able to pivot and cancel the trip if you face another lockdown.

I’d avoid American and United. Consider somewhere you can do lots of outdoor activities and keep track of any restrictions you may have going there and when you get back to your home state
