As summer ramps up and vacation season is around the corner, many people are left wondering where they can go during this COVID-19 pandemic. Travel during the pandemic is accompanied with risks and restrictions we’re not accustomed to.

With countries worldwide easing lockdown and other measures, it may seem like the tourism industry could soon open for business. Yet while domestic travel is allowed, international travel is still restricted in many parts of the world — but not everywhere.

24/7 Tempo compiled a list of 30 countries that are already open or will be open for international visitors in the summer. We did not include countries that allow entry to people only from a few countries, such as Denmark, or countries that won’t open their borders until August. Most European countries on the list are not open to U.S. citizens unless their spouse is a citizen of the country they want to visit or have other family there.

Eventually, people will be allowed to travel anywhere they please. Until then, if the U.S. is the only option, or if you’re just looking for a local perspective, these are the most beautiful attractions in the U.S.
