Depending on where you live, it may be getting cooler each day. If winter in your region brings snow, ice and frigid temperatures, consider planning a vacation in a luxury motorcoach to a warmer climate.
When you travel in a luxury motorcoach, you have all the amenities that are found in a hotel, including queen-size and bunk beds, full bathrooms with showers, a large refrigerator, kitchen sink, oven, dishwasher, large screen television with Wi-Fi, and plenty of storage space. Some RVs also come with an electric fireplace. LiTRV can help you assess what type of motorcoach would be the best fit for you and your family, friends, and pets, and arrange for a professional driver, should you choose not to drive.
One of the benefits of traveling in a luxury motorcoach is that the open road is yours to explore. There’s no rushing to the airport or having your travel plans interrupted by flight delays or cancellations.
If you’re seeking to escape freezing cold, miserable weather, consider visiting a warmer climate in the West and Southwest. Here are some ideas:
As the second-largest city in Arizona, Tucson is best known for its beautiful desert landscapes, vibrant Mexican American culture, delicious cuisine, and it is also a big college town — home to the University of Arizona.
While a large city, Tucson has kept its rustic appeal and has attracted creatives who draw inspiration from the serene Sonoran Desert. One Wall Street Journal reporter described Tucson as “a mini mecca for the arts.” With a vibrant arts and music scene, there’s plenty to experience in and around the city.
Tucson is also home to world-renowned spas and wellness resorts. LiTRV’s professional driver can drop you off at Miraval Resort & Spa, Canyon Ranch Resort, or another luxury spa where you can treat yourself to several days of relaxing, transformative self-care.
A trip to Tucson would not be complete without visiting Saguaro National Park. The giant, majestic saguaro is the universal symbol of the American West. Standing tall, often with many “arms,” these cacti are primarily found in Southern Arizona and Mexico. The park protects these iconic saguaros on the east and west sides of the city. The park includes scenic looped roads and several hiking trails, including Signal Hill Trail, which leads to petroglyphs of the ancient Hohokam people.
There are several RV resorts in and around Tucson, and because winter reservations book up quickly, our LiTRV team can help you plan your trip and research availability.
Death Valley, California
From the warmth of San Diego to the cooler beaches in Monterey and other northern California towns, California is a great place to escape the harsh winter. From whale watching to wine tasting, there’s plenty to do and many great regions of the state to explore.
Depending on which part of the state you want to visit, and if you have kids, you may want to allocate time to visit Disney California Adventure Park, Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott’s Berry Farm, and LEGOLAND California. If you’re spending time in or near San Diego, be sure to stop by Balboa Park, which includes 17 museums, 19 beautiful gardens, musical theaters, a sports complex, and the San Diego Zoo.
And, while temperatures often exceed 120 degrees in the summer, Death Valley is a beautiful park to visit in the winter, with temperatures averaging from the mid-60s to the low 70s during the day. In this below-sea-level basin, steady drought and record summer heat make Death Valley a land of extremes. Between the rugged canyons, salt flats, vibrant mountains, and golden sand dunes, the park offers stunning and diverse landscapes. While there are RV resorts nearby, we can arrange for your motorcoach to include a tow for your car, so you will have more flexibility exploring the park.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Whether you want to be dropped off at a five-star resort and casino or you prefer to stay at one of the RV resorts close to all the action, Las Vegas provides an incredible variety of entertainment, especially for winter visitors escaping colder climates.
And you don’t have to gamble to enjoy this one-of-a-kind city. Take in an evening show or concert, shop at designer boutiques and high-end brand stores, indulge in delicious cuisine at countless world-class restaurants…you’ll be amazed at how many entertainment options you have.
Las Vegas is also becoming a big sports town. With enough notice, LiTRV can try to secure tickets to big sporting events, including the Vegas Golden Knights (NHL), Las Vegas Raiders (NFL), and the Las Vegas Aces (WNBA). The city is currently preparing for the Formula One Grand Prix in November and Super Bowl LVIII in February 2024.
Or take a short road trip via your motorcoach to Lake Mead, which is just 24 miles east of Las Vegas. Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the United States in terms of water capacity. The reservoir is formed by Hoover Dam on the Colorado River. During winter months, daytime temperatures range from 57 to 69 degrees.
