RVers by nature are adventurous people who love getting up close and personal with nature. Whether it be by taking a simple hike or grilling out and enjoying a drink with family, connecting with the great outdoors is a basic tenet and value of RVers. While anyone can take a trail, there’s a range of other activities out there that you can partake in to enjoy the outdoors on a whole different level.
Did you know? Toy haulers are a favorite amongst RVers who tend to enjoy extreme activities and a great choice for anyone looking for a flexible space suitable for multiple uses.
Here’s a list of 5 unique activities you should make a point to try:
Snorkeling/Scuba Diving | If you’re planning a trip down to beautiful Florida (which has a TON of RV parks located inland and on the coast) you have to take the time to snorkel or scuba dive. There’s nothing like viewing the beautiful scenery that lies beneath the ocean. From brilliant coral to gorgeous fish, these activities are something that you’ll find yourself talking about for years and years to come.
Tidepool or Forest Exploration | While you’re exploring the coast take some time to discover the variety of small animals that make their home in tidepools. From starfish to crustaceans you’ll find yourself in awe of what you find. Find yourself in the woods? Try taking a slow walk alongside a river or stream and keep an eye out for salamanders, crayfish, toads and frogs, and a range of other animals.
Pick Local Fruit | Nothing connects you with nature quite like picking or growing your own fruit. Try researching crops that are local to the region you’re traveling in and finding a U-pick orchard to pick your own delicious fruit. As a bonus you can look up desserts that can be made with the fruit and whip up a treat for your family.
Stargazing | Grab an astronomy book and a set of binoculars (a telescope would be great, however, they’re quite expensive) and lay out underneath the stars to see how many constellations you can identify. This is a great activity for couples or families with young children.
Skydiving | OK, so this isn’t something that everyone can do, but if you’re in good health and have your doctor’s clearance, why not live on the edge and enjoy the beauty of planet earth from high in the sky? Many who have been skydiving have said it’s a completely ethereal experience and one they would love to have again. If you do decide to try skydiving just make sure you select a company with a good reputation for strict safety precautions.
Some of these ideas might be a little outside of the box and outside of your comfort zone, but they promise to give you experiences unlike any other. Have you ever tried any of these activities? What are some of your favorite ways to connect with nature? Share with us on Facebook or Google +.
