AAA Northeast to Host Town Hall on Rhode Island Summer Vacationing

With restrictions, regulations, and requirements abound, Rhode Islanders may be left feeling the summer season is lost. AAA has gathered local industry experts to help members navigate their options for safe and fun summer getaways. On August 4th, the region is invited to attend a town hall broadcast focused on safe alternatives for travel options.

Panelists include:

Sarah R. Bratko – Vice President of Advocacy and General Counsel, RI Hospitality Association
RIHA represents over 700 foodservice, hotels, vendors and hospitality members in the state of Rhode Island and has been the voice of the hospitality and foodservice industries in the state since 1963.

John Goodman – Director of Media and Public Relations, RI Airport Corporation
As Rhode Island moves into “Phase 3” of its re-opening plan, T.F. Green Airport and the Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) are providing updates for travelers regarding airport parking, available concessions, and new quarantine requirements for individuals arriving from states with high coronavirus positivity rates.

Evan Smith – President & CEO, Discover Newport
In these unprecedented times, there’s nothing that matters to Discover Newport more than the health and safety of our locals and visitors. Rest assured this coastal haven can still provide the serenity and relief it always has.

A visit to The Classic Coast—nine vibrant and historic towns all sharing some seriously prime New England coastline—is both everything you expect and enjoyably unpredictable. This is a place and a people made of surf and soul; raised by the ocean and built by eccentric and outspoken rebels some 300-plus years ago. If you’re looking for classic Colonial architecture and breathtaking New England landscapes, we’ve got ‘em. Trust us. But it’s a feeling you get here that’ll make you never want to leave. It’s that feeling of being away yet connected; switched off yet inspired; engaged yet refreshed. There’s no word for it, but it happens every day on the Classic Coast.

Cyndi Zesk – VP of Travel, AAA Northeast
COVID has left AAA members with questions. Let AAA be your first destination when you’re planning a trip. Whether it’s a family vacation or cruise, a romantic getaway, or a business trip, AAA can get you there in style, with great member savings. You’ll get hotel discounts, discount car rentals, and vacation packages that meet your needs and budget – all while we help you navigate the pandemic.
