RV Day Trips
RV Day Trips are an excellent way to find even more days a year to enjoy your investment and make the cost of owning an RV even more economical. RV ‘daycations’ are a perfect quick break in a hectic week to relax, recharge, and enjoy time with friends and family without a major time commitment.
RV Day Trip Ideas:
- Sporting events and concerts. Tailgating is one of the first options that come to mind for most people, think grilling, drinks and fun. This is a great place to meet other RVers who share your passion for a team even if you aren’t able to score tickets to the big game. College and professional stadiums have lots reserved exclusively for tailgaters but there may be an additional fee and you should book in advance.
- Theme parks. If you have small children or other people that tire easily in your group, having your RV in the lot is a lifesaver. It also makes the meals much more economical as you can pop back to the RV for a bite on a budget.
- State parks. A day at the park with the kids or a holiday family reunion are much more enjoyable when you have your RV along for the fun! Make sure to bring along plenty of outdoor chairs, bikes and games!
- Beach day. Having your RV at the beach is a welcome respite from the sun. Head inside your RV for shade and a cold drink when the sun is at it’s highest and enjoy the beach in the cooler hours. Napping in your RV with the sound of the waves outside your window is an amazing recharge for the week ahead.
- Outdoor festivals. Daytona Bike Week, Renaissance Fairs, Barbecue and other Food Festivals. Everfest provides a great calendar of events for upcoming not-to-miss festivals in Florida.
Packing for an RV Day Trip:
- Food and drink. Depending on the type of ‘daycation’, this category can range from quick sandwich fixings in the fridge to platters of meat and veggies for the grill. Food always tastes better eaten outside so don’t be afraid to over prepare when planning your meals.
- Grill. Make sure the propane is full as you don’t want to run out mid-meal!
- Games. Lawn games, board games, cards, etc. Make sure that there is plenty to do for all activity levels.
- Outdoor furniture. Make your outdoor area comfortable with a area mat, plenty of seating and shade. This
- Bikes, hula hoops, kites and other sporting equipment. Keep the kids active by providing plenty of fun outdoor activities for them.
- Tailgating antenna and outdoor TV. These are a must if you are headed to the big game.
