Ah, summer. Time to take time off from work to hit the beach, or road trip across the country or fly to new lands. 

Of course, the pandemic made many types of vacations totally impossible and many of the remaining options anxiety-inducing and unsafe. Yet people still find creative ways to relax, whether it’s by camping, renting and RV or staying close to home. One of those people is AirTalk’s host Larry Mantle, who's taking next week off to rest and take a few day trips around Southern California. And he needs ideas, dear listeners, so share your creative (and safe) vacation plans by calling 866-893-5722.
