We are vacationing in other places- I have no plans to go to Disney or Universal or any place that requires masks. I get following rules. I am a big rule follower. You are right- there are many places that don't require them- and we have been on two vacations this summer and have two more coming up. We have lots of options for places to go and things to do. Most places in the South are only recommending masks- probably because they don't want the headaches and lawsuits that come along with requiring them. And they don't want to lose all the customers they will lose if they require them.
Feel lucky that you can travel and vacation. Over here in the UK we have a much lower death rate than the US (but still higher than much of Europe who put harder lockdowns in place). Even within the UK we can't go anywhere as hotels etc aren't open, theme parks might start to re-open in July (after being closed since about the 20th March).
I'm choosing to stay at home at the moment and plan vacations for 2021 instead.
