DENVER — AAA Colorado on Tuesday announced a series of virtual travel events through mid-July to allow Colorado residents to see the world from the safety of their homes.

"We know two things for certain: Travel is coming back, and planning a future trip gives people something to look forward to – which everybody could use right now," said AAA Colorado spokesman Skyler McKinley. "The research is clear: The anticipatory period prior to travel is actually the most exciting time for travelers, and now's the perfect time to begin to plan and dream." 

AAA will team up with travel vendors and in-house experts to offer the virtual events for anyone who may be thinking of planning a vacation, according to the release from AAA Colorado.
