Remember camping as a kid? The experience seemed so magical, from the taste of charred hot dogs perfectly roasted over the campfire to the view of stars calmly twinkling in the silent nighttime sky.Read more
What could be more romantic than cuddling up under a sky full of stars near a warm campfire with the one you love? That’s right, pretty much nothing. This Valentines Day skip the flowers & chocolates (or don’t if it’s not in your best interest) and go camping together. RVing as a couple is living the full definition of quality time. Whether it’s working together to get your RV to the next destination without getting lost, or staying out of the driver’s hair and letting them be the captain; it’s teamwork at it’s finest. That’s why we always say
“Couples who can successfully & happily RV together, stay together”.
One of the luxuries of RVing is the ability to pick up and go pretty much wherever you want. Your can take your significant other to a National Monument or drive some place you’ve never been to camp out for the night. So RVing naturally gives gentleman (and ladies) an advantage when it comes to “wooing” your loved one. You have the world at your fingertips. I can’t imagine anything more romantic than sitting quietly on a mountain top somewhere or taking a sunset canoe ride on a beautiful lake in Utah. Ultimately, it’s a matter of taste. Here are some date night ideas that can happen regardless of location, each catering to different interests.
