Although the summertime always serves as an excellent time to go RVing, this summer is the best yet. With COVID-19 (coronavirus) increasing stress levels and keeping everyone home more than ever before, it is high time to take a break from it all. But, with social distancing orders still in effect, the options are quite limited. Thankfully, RVing is here to save the day. Here’s why it’s a great way to spend the rest of your summer.
A Brand New View Promises to Beat Cabin Fever — Fast
After months of social distancing, cabin fever has set in for many. The need to get out of the house and go absolutely anywhere is often hindered by a lack of open venues. Everything from concerts to parties is just not safe, giving you little option on spur of the moment activities. With RVing on your side, however, you can hop in your vehicle at a moment’s notice and hit the road to feel the cool breeze. If you are lucky, you can even find campgrounds with open sites, letting you stay away for the entire weekend with ease.
Camping Out Makes Social Distancing a Breeze
While social distancing orders are still in effect, you have to play it safe and camping is the way to go. When you camp out in your RV, you can stay a safe distance from other groups without compromising on the fun. You can use your own bathroom, cook at your own campsite, and even bring along tons of camping games to keep your group busy between adventures. Just remember to bring the masks to wear around others in case you end up in a crowded area.
Crowds Have Shrunk Considerably
In a normal year, more than 30 million people travel to Niagara Falls to peer across its great expanse and marvel at its stunning geological formations. With the US borders locked down tight, a fraction of the people will visit this year, as only 1/3 come from Canada. The same situation is playing out at all the major attractions across the country along with the campgrounds at every corner. This leaves plenty of room for your group to stretch their legs and check out the sights.
Rock Bottom Campground Prices Keep Costs Low
Since campgrounds are seeing far fewer campers than in prior years, many have dropped their prices quite a bit to get people to come stay awhile. With the money saved each night, you can easily decide to extend your trip without breaking the bank. Of course, if you want to camp for free, you always have the option to park on Crown lands instead. No matter where you decide to go, make sure to check that the campgrounds or lands are open for use as the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation evolves.
A Getaway Will Rejuvenate and Restore the Group
Believe it or not, RV travel is about much more than simply beating cabin fever and having fun. The time away in nature can help restore the mind and body, readying everyone to restart the daily grind with renewed vigor.
The benefits you may enjoy include:
- Lower cortisol levels
- Decreased heart rates
- Stress relief
- Improved focus
- Less inflammation
- Higher vitamin D levels
- A boost to creativity
And with all the new lifestyle changes and demands of daily life, these benefits are more important than ever. So, soak up the beauty of nature with confidence you are spending your time right this summer.
RV adventures await, giving you a way to beat cabin fever and simply get away from it all. Before you load up and head out, make sure to verify you have the right insurance coverage for your RV and all your other vehicles. That way, you can stay safe and maintain true peace of mind through all your travels.
