With a record number of people expected to travel in November, December, and January, it’s a good time to confirm your holiday plans. Last year, nearly 113 million people traveled from December 23 to January 2, alone, according to AAA. And, last year was the third busiest Thanksgiving travel year since AAA started tracking travel in 2000.
Throughout last year’s holiday season, spirits were dampened for those flying due to thousands of flight cancellations and long delays at airports. Big storms and labor shortages were blamed, and it’s easy to understand why some people might hesitate to fly this holiday season.
Travel in a Luxury Motorcoach
Fortunately, there’s an alternative way to travel for the holidays in a luxury motorcoach. Whether you are traveling to see family or planning a fun vacation with family and friends, a luxury motorcoach has all the amenities you would find in a hotel, including queen-size and bunk beds, full bathrooms with showers, a large refrigerator, kitchen sink, oven, dishwasher, large screen television with WiFi, and plenty of storage space.
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. In addition, we can assist with other travel needs, such as reservations at fine dining restaurants, local tourist excursions, and other memorable experiences.
If you’re like most people, you’ll want to visit a warmer climate during the holidays. Our team at LiTRV can assist you with making reservations at a luxury RV resort, but reservations book up quickly, so we suggest confirming your plans soon.
Here are three luxury RV resorts to consider:
Bluewater Key Luxury RV Resort in Key West, Florida
If you’re seeking warmth and ocean fun similar to a Caribbean experience, consider planning your vacation to the Florida Keys. A string of tropical islands stretching some 120 miles off the southern tip of the state, the Florida Keys begin about 15 miles south of Miami and extend south-southwest, dividing the Atlantic Ocean to the east from the Gulf of Mexico to the northwest. Key West is the southernmost city in the continental United States, and it is located just 93 miles from Cuba.
Bluewater Key Luxury RV Resort in Key West is the perfect destination if you’re seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Tucked away in a peaceful enclave, this vacation destination is dotted with tiki huts and surrounded by sparkling turquoise water. Relax by the pool or spend the day diving or snorkeling. Be sure to visit Mallory Square in Key West, where you can dine, shop, and experience Mallory Square’s world-famous sunset celebration. Take a tour of Ernest Hemingway’s historic home and museum or check out the iconic Duval Street, known for its lively bars and restaurants. Duval Street is also famous for its New Year’s Eve celebration, so if you’re planning to stay through the New Year, make your plans to visit Key West well in advance.
Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort in South Carolina
Hilton Head Island received the prestigious honor of being named “#1 Island in the Continental U.S.” and “#2 Island in the World” by Travel+Leisure Magazine, and the “Top Island in the United States” by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine.
The island is part of the Lowcountry region of South Carolina. It’s known for its pristine beaches and golf courses. Hilton Head Island features unique restaurants and shops, the Harbour Town Lighthouse and Museum, the Coastal Discovery Museum, bike paths, hiking trails, and plenty of other fun activities, including kayaking and fishing. Between the island and mainland, the Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge salt marsh hosts deer, alligators and birds.
Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort is a great place to spend the holidays. Set on 50 acres of fully landscaped property, the pet-friendly resort features unique lots and diverse amenities, including a pool and hot tub, tennis courts, six new pickle ball courts, shuffleboard courts, a clubhouse, a poolside restaurant, a fully equipped gym, a full laundry facility and more. The property also has a secured, gated entrance.
Motorcoach Country Club in Indio, California
The warmth of California’s desert can also provide the perfect setting for a holiday vacation. Set in Coachella Valley, Indio is in the Colorado desert region of the Sonoran Desert.
With magnificent mountain and desert views, Motorcoach Country Club in Indio is surrounded by more than 100 golf courses and dozens of gated communities. Set on 80 acres, the luxury RV resort includes its own beautiful golf course as well as a 10,000 square-foot clubhouse, five-star restaurant, pickle ball and tennis courts, and one of the waterways for boats. Most of the Class A motorcoach lots are enhanced with “coach houses,” private swimming pools, casitas, and lush landscaping.
Named the City of Festivals, Indio has become a favorite destination for foodies and music lovers, attracting more than 1 million people each year for its multiple mainstream events, including the Indio International Tamale Festival taking place this year on Dec. 2 and Dec. 3.
During your vacation, be sure to visit nearby Palm Springs where you can view mid-century modern architecture, shop at high-end boutiques and art galleries, and dine at fine restaurants.
Indio is also some 30 miles from Joshua Tree National Park, which stretches over 800,000 acres of rugged terrain. Revered by American Indian tribes, the Joshua tree’s leaves provided durable materials for baskets and footwear, while the buds and seeds were a healthy addition to their food supply. The park’s unique rock formations are popular with rock climbers and there are plenty of places to hike and picnic.
These are just some winter destinations to consider when planning your holiday vacation. If you have other destinations in mind, we’ll be happy to help you plan a memorable vacation in a luxury motorcoach, complete with a professional driver, should you choose not to drive.
