With 52 weeks in a year and only 2 or 3 weeks of vacation time off from work, it is important to plan your time wisely so that you can make the most out of your getaway. For starters, you must decide what type of vacation you want. If you are someone that seeks adventure, but also peace and quiet at times then you may consider making the Rocky Mountains your next vacation spot. There are many perks of taking a vacation to the Rocky Mountains because of the variety of things you can do.
Take a Road trip to the Rockies
Many people can attest that the best part of a road trip vacation is the road trip itself! If you have never taken a road trip before, don’t worry, it is easy to find all the tips you need to succeed. If you are traveling to the Rockies from a few states away, don’t miss out on enjoying the uniqueness of every state by flying instead of driving. Pick a few places in each state that you can visit without detouring from your route much and I can guarantee you that it will be one of the most exciting things you will do! If you are feeling spontaneous, don’t search for places to stop ahead of time, but look for billboards on the highway for interesting places to go! You will be surprised by how many unique places you can find without searching on Google.
Buy a timeshare
One of the best ways to enjoy your vacation is to buy a timeshare with family or friends. For example: while searching for a place to stay, you may find that the Welk Resort timeshare cost fits your budget perfectly. When buying a timeshare you can split the total cost while enjoying the benefits of having a home away from home whenever you desire. Owning a timeshare is relatively easy to maintain and it is more cost efficient than buying a vacation house on your own. You also have the possibility of buying a timeshare with strangers. I know that it might seem scary, but in reality you would be splitting the cost with people that are seeking to enjoy the perks of the timeshare as well. This means, that you won’t have to worry about them trashing the place because it will be a vacation home that they have invested in, too.
The best part about being in the Rocky Mountains is the amazing view that you will get every time you walk outside. If you are someone who enjoys nature, then consider spending a portion of your time in the Rocky Mountains hiking. Hiking is a great way to test and build your endurance. It is also a great way to explore, have fun and get into shape! Another perk is that you can turn your hiking trip into an educational lesson by teaching yourself or your kids about the different animals, trees and plants you may see while hiking. You can find lists of the different types of species online and make a scavenger hunt out of it as well!
Go Skiing or Snowboarding
There is nothing like skiing in the open mountains. There are many resorts in the Rocky Mountains that make skiing safe and enjoyable! After skiing in real mountains, you will wonder how you ever lived without it! You can take lessons if you are a first timer and who knows, it just might turn into your new favorite hobby!
Enjoy the rivers
The Rocky Mountains are a great place to go fishing however, that is not the only thing that you can do in the rivers. You can enjoy water rafting, swimming and a whole list of fun water activities. Many of the state parks can supply the equipment that you need for a reasonable price as well.
While it is nice to have a timeshare to come home to, you may also enjoy camping for a few days out of your trip. You can camp in the wild or in your timeshares back yard but either way, your experience will be completely rejuvenating. You can build a fire the old school way, tell night time ghost stories, eat marshmallows with hotdogs and sleep under the stars or in a cozy tent. An added bonus is that spending a few nights without using electronics will bring you and your family or friends closer together.
All in all, a vacation in the Rockies is a very thrilling experience if you plan your time wisely. The spontaneity of road tripping, the excitement of experiencing the outdoors and the security of knowing that you have a timeshare in one of the most luxurious places in the country will make waiting for your vacation worth it.
