Social distancing is a strategy to avoid contracting Covid-19. The advice is given to maintain a distance of six feet apart from other persons in order to avoid contagion. This, along with washing one's hands frequently, is the recommended practice to minimize one's chance of being infected with the coronavirus.

So if you want to avoid close quarters in airplane cabins, city streets, and crowded hotels, why not take a road trip? This is the third in a series of articles highlighting some absolutely exquisite places where you'll encounter no crowds.

Twin Farms is a resort in the state of Vermont. Its 20 guest accommodations are spread over 300 wooded acres. The photo at the top of this article is the view from Aviary, the cottage where we spend our first night. The floor-to-ceiling windows brought in the beautiful outdoors. You can read about our stay here and learn about the incredible gourmet food included with your stay in this article.
