Hotels arent the only place you can
stay on vacation
by Joe Collinsworth
Today, we as travelers have a ton of options to consider. Where
to go, how to get there, where to stay, what to take, how to
plan, where to find deals
You get the point. Well, this article is to introduce you to
options on where to stay other than a hotel.
Hotels are a great option. They can be just what you need for
your trip, especially if its just two of you. You can
go with big chains that are well trusted or small chains that
may take some digging to ensure you get a nice, clean, affordable
hotel room with everything you need. However, if you travel
with a number of people or as a family, a hotel room can get
cramped, lack privacy, and get expensive when you upgrade to
suites and add extra amenities (like a kitchenette).
Hotels though are great because it is easy to find a lot of
good deals with all the viable travel sites out there.
But, you do have other options
**How about a condo? Condos are great, and in some destinations
the main option. Condos can be small or big. They offer added
space, extra amenities, prime locations, and at prices that
are comparable to hotel rooms.
For example, we stayed in a quaint (small) condo in Miami. We
rented it for only $400 for the week. It was perfect for my
wife and I. The beds pulled down out of the wall, we had a very
very clean room, private entrance to the place and beaches,
quiet area, 2 pools, a kitchen with equipment, a nice bathroom,
cable, and gorgeous view of the Atlantic. It was our love
shack for the week and much cheaper by almost $200 than
any hotel in the area.
**Rent a home. These are now great with the way real estate
is nowadays. If you are traveling with a large group, then this
may be your best choice. Get everything you need or live like
luxury in a beachfront home for your vacation.
Once, 18 of our family members went to Florida and had to rent
a home. It was not on the Ocean, but on a bay. It was perfect.
It had 3 levels, a hot tub, pool, 4-5 bedrooms, plenty of room,
amenities, and lots of fun. We had a great time together since
everyone lives in different parts of the country. It was very
affordable once split up 4 ways also.
**Resorts and All-inclusive. This is an excellent option for
families or if you dont want to worry about reaching into
your pocket. All-inclusive seems to be diminishing in the US,
but you can find it abroad and is typically the best choice.
Resorts are great for those who want to spend quality time together,
get plenty of privacy and space, and enjoy various activities
like golf, fishing, things for the kids, spas, etc
**Time Shares. These are growing tremendously in the traveling
world. Time-shares are great if you use them. You pay a fee
upfront and once a year to utilize a time-share. There are various
types, so you would want to do your research. Buying a time-share
is similar to buying a home in that you dont want to take
the decision lightly.
My wifes parents have one and love it. They can go anywhere
they want as long as they stay in the designated places. We
used theirs for our honeymoon in Palm Beach, Florida. It was
first-class all the way.
If you and your family travel at least once a year, consider
looking into a time-share.
**Camping and RV parks. With the way campgrounds and RV parks
are set up nowadays, the term rough it doesnt
exactly come to mind. You can get almost everything at a campground
that youd get in a hotel. They are cheap, live out in
nature for a week, and have a great time. There are a few things
to consider if you are a novice to camping, so youll want
to do some homework before you decide on this as an option.
**Houseboats. Live on the water for your trip. This is, yet
another option to choose from. My aunt has lived on a houseboat
in Florida for years and loves it. This is something many dont
even think of, but look into it, you may not go back to staying
on land for any future trips.
We hope this article has helped shed some light on where you
might stay on your vacations. Villas, Cabins, and other type
choices should be considered for specific destinations and vacations.
Most importantly, have fun, find great deals, and enjoy your
