Try a different RVing experience
By this time of year, you may have already been on a few RV trips or are currently planning one for an upcoming Canadian long weekend. What’s so great about the summer is it offers constant opportunities to learn about new destinations.
Traveling by RV always provides great memories and there are often a few choices of RV parks in the region you want to visit. Remember, reservations are always recommended and if space is not available, you may be forced to look for accommodations elsewhere or a new trip altogether.
If this has been the case when planning a previous getaway, online booking sites like Harvest Hosts and Campertunity are ideal alternatives. Both can offer the chance to stay in your desired location and enjoy a unique environment for the night.
A departure from traditional campgrounds and provincial or national parks, they are strictly for campers and are the perfect way to try something you haven’t done before. For example, depending on the RV booking site and its hosts, you can relax among the grounds of vineyards, the wide open spaces of orchards or even find an area in a busy urban centre.
RV booking sites and the hosting locations welcome RVers all season. You can reserve in areas all the way to your final destination or even make a trip out of visiting a variety of regions, staying at a different private space every night. You just might be surprised at what you can find.
This style of RVing is more popular than ever. Above all, online RV booking sites can provide new memories on the road and different experiences with every planned trip this summer.
