In the past road trip and luxury weren’t necessarily two phrases that went hand-in-hand, but now that’s anything but true. Road trips have a lot of advantages when it comes to vacationing including the fact that you may be able to avoid the inconveniences of airports, they’re great if you have kids and a family, and they give you the opportunity to see a lot more than you would if you were to go to a single resort and stay there for a week.
Road trips create authentic experiences, but for a lot of people who want a luxurious vacation, they just don’t see how it could work for them.
Luckily, there are ways you can create a luxurious road trip and enjoy the best of all worlds and a true bucket-list experience.
Rent an RV
There are sites like Outdoorsy that make it extremely easy to rent an RV, and you can choose from simple options to high-quality luxury vehicles among a complete list of RV brands. You can choose a large RV with all the amenities of a home on wheels, so you won’t feel like you’re sacrificing on your road trip. RVs have come a long way in what they’re equipped with and their overall style and design.
In fact, some RVs are so nice they’re nearly the equivalent of having a five-star hotel with you on the road.
When you take a road trip in an RV, you have a couple of options regarding accommodations. First, of course, you can stay in the RV, or you can stop at hotels and high-end resorts along the way.
If you do decide to stay in the RV, there are high-end RV parks that cater to people who want the experience of a road trip without necessarily roughing it. There are options with pools, tennis, fishing, social events, and really anything else you would get at any other resort.
If you want the best of the best, look for an RV campground with scenic views that you wouldn’t even be able to get at most resorts.
You can always stop along the way to enjoy meals on a road trip, or you can use the kitchen in that luxurious RV you rented. Think about sampling the local flavor in all the places you go by going to gourmet markets, local seafood markets, local farms, and all of the places that you wouldn’t ordinarily be able to food shop if you were at home.
One of most people’s favorite things about going on vacation is sinking into a super luxe hotel bed. The best ones feel like a cloud that envelops you, but if you’re going to be sleeping in your RV, you may be worried you won’t get that same experience.
With that in mind, pack you own bedding. It’ll be worth the few extra minutes it takes to get your bed just right for a great night’s sleep wherever you are.
These are just a few ways to elevate a road trip from mundane to elegant as you see the country.
