Families benefit from RV vacations
Discover what 30 million Americans already know... recreation vehicles (RVs) offer a fun and affordable way to vacation with the entire family. A vacation, with just a family of four, can become quite expensive. Costs quickly add up; they include: transportation, lodging, and food-let's not forget the entertainment. Amusement park tickets, museum admission, historic tours, boat rentals, all add to vacation expenses.
RV vacations have become the fun and affordable way to spend time with the family. Nearly eight million U.S. households today own at least one RV-a 58 percent gain since 1980. This year plans to be a good year as well.
The RV combines transportation, lodging and restaurant all in one. Depending on the type, RVs can come fully equipped with state-of-the-art kitchens, bathrooms, central air and heat, queen-sized beds, entertainment systems and more, allowing you to bring all the comforts of home with you when you travel. Many RVs provide kid-friendly areas with bunks, extra storage and additional entertainment systems.
Campgrounds, like other resorts, offer something for every member of the family-swimming pools, playgrounds, game rooms, boating, fishing, nature trails, planned activities and more! There are over 1,000 campgrounds in Michigan, located near popular destinations, along major tourist routes and even in metropolitan areas.
Replace airport delays, cramped hotel rooms and expensive restaurants with family memories of scenic drives, comfortable, amenity-filled campgrounds, campfire cookouts and outdoor adventures. RV owners surveyed by Robert Hilton Associates cited the most important benefits of family camping are bringing the family closer together, having new experiences and teaching a respect of nature.
