The spirit of the holiday season is all about the quality time spent together with our loved ones. And while these days it’s increasingly easy to forget this simple truth, there’s nothing quite like reminiscing about holidays past to remind one’s self about the traditions and memories a family shares.
With this in mind, we asked our Scenic Route contributors to share with us their favorite memories of RVing during the holidays with their families. Please join us in reflecting on the memories you’ve experienced and share your holiday favorites in the comments.
Our RV has given us the chance of a lifetime. It has brought us together and made us a better family. Each and every trip, big or small, has created memories that our kids will surely be telling their children, like when we went RVing to the beach for the first time and the first taste of the ocean water. These are magical moments to me and having a camera to capture them means they will live on forever. We have only had our RV for two years but it has become a part of us. We bring “home” with us wherever we go. I always thought we would have an RV when we retired and could spend time traveling. That would have been a mistake to miss all the time with our whole family, to miss moments that we can never get back, and to give our kids adventures to places they may never have seen. I hope to instill this love of adventure in them and their future families. If you have the chance to RV, take it and it just might change you forever. It has for us and for that I am truly grateful.
