TAMPA (WFLA/NBC) – If you’re planning to travel outside the U.S. this summer, take note!

There are currently 57 countries on the state department’s travel advisory list ranging from level 2 to level 4 and some are popular vacation destinations.

Included in the level 2 category, which means to “Exercise increased caution,” are the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and the Bahamas. If you are planning a trip abroad be sure to check out the travel advisories on the U.S. state department’s website.

The agency says its a good idea to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program to receive alerts. 

Also, review the crime and safety reports for the countries you are traveling to.
