After taking a break from traveling last summer, Susan Newell and her family are happy to be tourists once more.
Many attractions were closed or restricted last summer because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so the family decided to stay at home in Pontotoc, Miss.
But this summer, they’ve visited several destinations, including Mississippi Children’s Museum-Meridian in mid-July. Newell and her husband played with their three young boys in the museum’s ambulance and in other exhibits.
The kids approved of the trip.
“They like it, which is why they’re just running around right now,” Newell said. “They’re not sitting still.”
