Traveling Through a Government Shutdown
A Conclusion for Travelers to the Government Shutdown

Open for Business During the Government Shutdown

One week into the government shutdown, and niether side looks to be willing to budge towards a solution. Caught in the crossfire are travelers - much like you and me - who aren't able to visit their national treasues, due to closures caused as a result of the shutdown.

While many of great cultural works are closed as a result of the shutdown (such as the Smithsonian, the National Zoo, and many memorials and museums directly under the care of the federal government), it doesn't mean that one's entire travels are shot as a result. In fact, there are still many places that are open as a result of the shutdown - and many places internationally that remain open as well!

In the latest edition of the Travel Insure blog, I've taken a look at four options for the traveler - be they as far away as another country, to as local as your library. And each of these options offer great cultural options for all members of the family. Read my tips by clicking on this link to the Travel Insure blog!

How are you making the most of your travels during this shutdown period? Has the shutdown encouraged you to start checking off alternate locations on your travel list? Let me know by leaving a comment over at the Travel Insure blog!
