Go RVing To Create Lasting Memories
You love to go out and explore the world, and you love to visit all types of places. But what if you want to make these experiences but are not or are with someone who is not really the camping type?
RVing could be your solution. It allows you to explore the beautiful world around you, all while bringing with you some of the luxuries and niceties of home. An RV will allow you and your partner (or your family) to experience the beautiful sights, sounds, and even smells that some of the most beautiful places on this continent have to offer.
Go RVing and you get to not only enjoy the destination, but also your way there. And no matter how large or low-key of an RV you choose to travel in, you’ll be able to make memories for a lifetime along the way.
Taking Someone RVing
Anyone who has done it knows the indescribable feeling of getting out on the open road and finding your own campsite. You not only get to see parts of the country that you’ve never seen before, but you also don’t have to travel worrying about finding costly hotels.
So especially if you are the kind of person who chases this feeling and wants to be as close to nature as possible, it can be difficult to find a compromise when traveling with someone who doesn’t want to camp. Choose an RV, and even making these experiences with small children (who would otherwise be too little to go camping) suddenly becomes easily possible.
We all know it: staying in a hotel overnight is not even close to comparable. You simply won’t be able to fully experience and explore the area as you could from a campsite or an RV park. Best of all, when you go RVing you are not limited to signature destinations like the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone National Park, but can transcend any destination.
Picking the Perfect Destination
Especially the first time you go RVing, it’s crucial to pick the right destination. Traveling with an RV is an investment of both your time and money, so you have to make sure to make the most of it.
For most people, that means defaulting to famous sites, such as national parks. And of course, these are obvious choices for a trip. At the same time, they are far from your only option.
For example, if you love history, consider venturing out to Colonial Williamsburg or even Gettysburg. Experiencing part of America’s history is priceless, and being able to visit these scenic and historic places while staying in your RV is simply special. In a way, it gets you more in tune with the history you’re visiting, taking you back in time to when life was more simplistic and camping was simply a way of life.
Once you adopt the RV lifestyle, you will find that there is no limit to the trips you can take. Whenever you have a free minute, you can pick up and go on a spontaneous road trip without worrying too much about planning ahead of time.
Making Spur of the Moment Decisions
You could take a trip during the fall simply to see the beautiful fall foliage that the Northeast has to offer. Alternatively, you can visit one of the countless beautiful lakes throughout the United States, or even visit a city of your choice. When you go RVing you get ultimate control over the trips you take. From festivals that involve camping to a spontaneous weekend fishing trip, enjoy the simple things in life in an adventurous way while still taking advantage of the comfort of your RV.
Given the plethora of potential locations available to you, it does make sense to do a little research before you pack up and go to your destination. Try to find an RV park within close vicinity of your ideal location.
If you’re willing to go for the basics or have an RV that can accommodate camping even in minimalist conditions, you can find parks that just offer clean water and electricity. But some RV parks also offer you sewage hookups and even WiFi connectivity. If you do the research, you can decide which options offer you the best fit for your style and preferences.
Additionally, you can even find some parks that offer Glamping, also known as glamorous camping. These parks offer even more amenities, such as golf courses, clubhouses, restaurants, spa services, wine rooms, and even coffee bars. Who said you had to forego luxury during your camping adventure?
Joining the Tiny House Movement
For some people, spending time in an RV is not just about going and getting away–they want to take it to the next level. You may have heard about the tiny house movement, a desire to live a more simple life and get rid of the things that don’t matter, which has swept the world. But that doesn’t necessarily involve buying a physical home. For some, the size and space that some of the larger RV’s have to offer is more than enough to live.
These RVs gives people the ability to visit any place they want, while simultaneously living modestly in a what can be called a ‘tiny home’. Of course, living in your RV full time is not necessarily the right thing. But if you’re planning to spend a large amount of your time traveling, it is an appealing option.
Great For All Ages (and Species)
Of course, as mentioned above, when you go RVing you are far from limited to one or two people at a time. If you are looking for a family getaway that also allows you to spend time together, this may just be the right choice.
These days, finding that quality family time can be difficult. Day-to-day life and constant distractions are often in the way. In an RV, you can change all of that. Pack up your family and spend a long weekend, going somewhere you’ve never been. Or take your children to Crater Lake National Park, and watch them experience the beautiful views for the first time in their lives.
Another advantage of traveling in an RV is the fact that pets are more than welcome. If you own a cat or dog, the idea of being gone for several days almost certainly puts stress on you and your pets. At the same time, it can be expensive to find a place to put your pet for several days.
When you go RVing, your pets don’t have to stay behind. You can save money, time, and energy all while keeping your entire family together. If your family includes one of more four-legged members, why not include them in your travels?
On the other end of your spectrum, an RV could be perfect to spend time with your other half during retirement. People often spend so much time working and going through the daily grind that they forget how to relax and unwind. But after you’ve retired, you’ll be able to set your own schedule and live at your own pace. Take your RV, and visit places that you’ve never been before. Alternatively, make a point to visit places that have been special in your life.
You can even go stargazing–that’s the beauty of RVing. There are no limits, no rules, and a lot less stress. Spend the week at the destination of your choice, and save yourself a great deal of money. The cost of a hotel room for that time could actually deter you from going on your trip. But an RV allows much more flexibility, allowing you to go on adventures of your liking.
From the east coast to the west coast and all places in between, fantastic sites throughout America are abundant. From historic battlefields to glorious National Parks, now is the time to make memories that will last a lifetime. So why embrace the RV lifestyle?
