Spring Break on a Budget – RV Rental

Spring break isn’t just for college students looking for fun in the sun. Many parents use this opportunity to take a family-friendly getaway that keeps their kids entertained (and off the internet) during their mid-season vacation. 

Unfortunately, the price of vacationing during these peak travel times is enough to break the bank. Between hotel accommodations, airfare, and dining out, it would be easy to drop several thousand dollars on even a simple trip. 

So what’s a family to do?

Take a Spring Break Road Trip in a Luxury RV

An RV vacation is a budget-friendly way to get the family out of the house and out on the road during your spring break. As you’ll be traveling in your home away from home, you’ll save on the cost of airfare and hotel accommodations. And the RV’s kitchen gives you the freedom to cook your own food and save money on dining out. 

After a long, cold winter, your family is anxious to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather. Fortunately, there are destinations all across the U.S. that are easily accessible by RV. Plus, these destinations offer an almost unlimited supply of inexpensive fun outdoor activities.

Here are a few of our very favorites:

Yosemite National Park

As one of the country’s most notable natural areas, Yosemite National Park offers an unparalleled view of nature’s awe-inspiring majesty. The park covers some 1,200 square miles and features an array of family- and budget-friendly activities. From hiking and mountain climbing to gazing at glorious waterfalls and guided nature tours, you’re bound to enjoy every minute at this landmark destination.

Rich in history and beautiful scenery, San Antonio was settled in 1718. In fact, many of its most historic spots remain to this day, including the legendary Alamo. The city has become a hot vacation destination in recent years, thanks in large part to the city’s gorgeous River Walk Park. Lining the banks of the San Antonio River, this attraction features an assortment of shops, restaurants, public artworks, and historic missions.
