Fun for Families
Something happens when families spend time together. Something good. Bonds are built between the generations. Secrets are shared. Discoveries are made. Moments are frozen in time.
Sometimes the road to a happy family is an actual road. Nothing brings a family closer together than taking them away. Away from the daily distractions that can get in your way. On a whim, you can hop in an RV and spend a weekend with your kids after a hectic week at work. Whether your passion is camping, mountain biking or touring some of history’s great landmarks, RVing is a wonderfully fun, surprisingly affordable way to get there more often.
According to a recent survey of RV owners, one of the activities that children enjoy most while on an RV vacation is gathering with their families around a campfire – whether it’s to make s’mores, roast marshmallows or tell stories. Survey results also suggest that children who take RV trips with their families continue the tradition of RV travel when they get older.
Step Back in Time. Tour Civil War and early American history battlefields from coast to coast, especially when a reenactment or celebration is planned. After you spend the day going back in time, you can spend the evening enjoying the modern conveniences of your RV.
Do a Good Deed. On Arbor Day (the last Friday in April), fill the RV with kids, saplings and shovels and embark on a mission to help beautify the earth. The best part is, after the good deeds are done, everyone can shower or wash up before snacks are served.
Feeling Adventurous? Pack up your archaeology books and maps and head out to a dig site. Volunteer for the day, and then watch “Jurassic Park” or “Indiana Jones” on the way home.
No Need to Hibernate. RVs aren’t just for camping – and they’re not just for summertime either – they can open up a world of possibilities for adventure and travel. Plan an active outdoor winter RV vacation complete with ice skating, sledding, snowboarding and snowmobiling. Plenty of storage means there’s room to pack bulky winter clothing and accessories to keep warm. With a little cold-weather preparation and with water and central heat standard equipment on most RVs, there is no off-season! And when the winter chill sets in, step into the warmth of your personal ski lodge on wheels for some hot cocoa and warm moments.
RVs help families escape the ordinary and enjoy the time away from work and demanding weekday schedules. Make the most of your downtime. Together.
