I was thinking about taking my 4 yo on a beach vacation and skipped going anywhere during peak summer season. Is there any place with low risk where I can spend some time away from home?

Pick an area you want to go and look for an Airbnb. We just went to the beach and were able to avoid crowds.

There are tons of smaller towns with beaches that won’t be absolutely crazy (think Delray Beach instead of West Palm Beach). I would look at small boutique hotels or B&B’s instead of chain hotels. Where/ what area are you looking to go?

Thanks all. I was looking for Cape cod.

I have a place I'm about to rent out near Sedona, AZ.

I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues.

I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
