One of the easiest ways to support sustainable travel is to select a car free family vacation island for your next family trip. A car free family vacation island, generally, has a healthier population due to less air pollution and a less sedentary population, improved conditions for culture and leisure facilities, more space set aside for gardens and parks, more energy-efficient and water-efficient buildings (due to necessity), higher real estate values, and lower rates of crime, among other benefits.
To provide some additional eco-inspiration, while I’ve written about our travel experiences in Hydra, Greece and more recently Mackinac Island, Michigan, here is a list of other U.S States and countries who have designated entire islands as car-free.
