There's an old saying that there's no work without vacation. That's to say, to be productive, you must take time away from work to rest. As such, it's important to plan a getaway every now and then to refresh and replenish your productivity. To give you some extra help in accomplishing that goal, we're providing tips on planning your trip. Check them out and start thinking about your next adventure!
Let's get down to brass tacks. You can't go on a vacation without choosing a destination. Thus, the first step in planning a getaway is to pick a destination. Think about a region you've always wanted to visit, like the Pacific Northwest, Florida's Gulf Coast, or California Wine Country. Then, look for resorts near those destinations that will give you easy access to the local attractions.
If you're looking for warmer weather during winter, try checking out our Southern getaways.
The change of seasons will influence how you plan a getaway. Are you in search of snow-free Southern stay during winter? Or are you looking for mild summer temperatures and ample swimming opportunities in the Great Lakes State? (That's Michigan, by the way.)
Just as important as where you travel is when you travel. The seasons will change the opportunities. Use the tips below as a rough guide for choosing:
The journey doesn't have to be wasted time. Instead, turn your drive into part of the vacation. Look for great stops along the way, such as historical towns and national parks. You might also consider spending a night at one of our other resorts along the way if you have a long drive. We've even come up with some sample ideas for road trips, including adventures in Texas, the Midwest, and the Gulf Coast.
This could be part of planning a budget, but it's important enough to be separated. You should always check for special offers when you plan a getaway. Depending on what's available, you could find significant savings. There are often winter specials, especially for long-term stays in snowbird states. And summer sees deals at our seasonal resorts in cooler climates. Additionally, there are year-round offers, such as our RV Longer Program and the Sun Military Discount.
Last, but certainly not least, is to enjoy your trip! You've done a lot of work to plan a getaway, now is the time to kick back and rejuvenate. Take advantage of the activities and amenities offered at our resorts across the U.S. and Canada. Whether it be kayaking, swimming, mini golfing, taking a hayride, or something else, there's an option for you to enjoy.
And that's all there is to it. It's not difficult to plan a getaway and we promise the payoff is worth it. The next step is to share this post with a fellow traveler and begin planning your own vacation. Happy trails!
