Unforgettable Yellowstone RV Trip

YellowStone Pic 1I recently spent some time helping one of our members plan an RV trip to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks all the way from Minnesota. We went back and forth on the details changing things here and there for about a month before deciding we had his trip all planned out!

It was such a cool experience for me that we decided to write about it in our newsletter.Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 10.18.47 AM

Well, I wasn’t the only one who thought that it was cool! I’ve had several members call in since asking for help planning their own trips to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks.Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 10.15.17 AM

Escape The Winter: Mazatlan With The Family

Andrea DreamingIf you are like me the longer the winter gets the more I longingly stare out the window–humming John Denver’s Sunshine on my shoulders and dreaming of a sunny beach with a lounge chair with my name on it.

If you are a member with us, this doesn’t just have to be a dream! You can hop right from fantasy to sandy beach and all for a minimal cost.

 Mazatlan, Mexico is a beach lovers dream vacation. With over 12 miles of continuous beach you can relax, enjoy water sports, picnic, and so much more. For the more adventurous you won’t want to miss Diver’s Point. Here you can watch divers jump from high atop the cliffs into the 6 foot deep Pacific Ocean below them! This show is FREE to the public! But if you enjoy the performance, don’t forget to tip–that is how the talented divers make their living!Diving

You will also want to visit El Faro- Mazatlan’s Lighthouse. El Faro is one of the tallest natural lighthouses in the world. Here you can explore long walks and hikes along the coast. You will want to stay until sunset to experience the beautiful colors of the sunset along the water.Screen Shot 2015-03-06 at 2.27.02 PM

Aside the beaches and other natural wonders, Mazatlan offers fun entertainment for the whole family. Visit Mazatlan’s aquarium and you will experience the “largest seawater fish tank” in Latin America. Here you can swim with the sharks, enjoy the sea-lion show, and go snorkeling in the Manta Ray Tank!! Talk about adventure!

 Even more exciting than all of this, right now with Hopaway Holiday you can book a 2 Bdrm condo that sleeps up to 6 people for $399.00 for 7 nights. That’s $57.00 a night for 7 nights starting April 12th!!

Snowbird Vacations

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 11.24.09 AMSnowbird season is upon us once again. The less hardy RVers put theirs into storage for the winter however; there is a special breed of camper, the Snowbird, who continues to use their RV all year round. These campers set their sights further south once the leaves begin to change. Snow is not their cup of tea but sun and sand sure are. My great grandparents were Snowbirds for several years before settling in Arizona. Every fall they would ready the 5th wheel for their long trek from Black Hawk, South Dakota to Mazatlan, Mexico. They would winter in the south because it was much kinder on their health and because they had friends that did so as well. I remember them bringing back many cool trinkets from their yearly Snowbird journey. Here are a few destinations in the Coast to Coast system for you to check out on your own Snowbird Journey!

Coast 2 Coast

Alabama:

Mountain Lakes Resort by Ocean Canyon Properties is a Premier Coast to Coast park. Located near Langston, Alabama it has over a half mile of lake shoreline on its property.

Vegas Here We Come

VegasI recently had the opportunity to help one of our new Members utilize Coast to Coast and become familiar with booking a discounted hotel stay. Through Coast Travel Services’ Members on Vacation website they were able to find a hotel stay in one of the most desired travel destinations, Las Vegas, Nevada. They called me wanting to know how to book a hotel stay for 5 days and 4 nights; they were concerned that they had already booked a hotel stay for $120.00 per night and thought that was a little high. Together we were able to find a hotel stay for them through Coast Travel Services at discounted rate of only $59.99 per night, that’s right almost half of what they were going to originally pay. They were able to get into the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino with Unlimited Tower access.Vegas

Many hotels charge higher rates depending on the day of your stay, with our affiliate programs you are able to get your stay for one low rate throughout the week! Here at Midwest Outdoor Resorts I am able to help our Members find the best possible discounted travel accommodations out there. If I can’t find it, I will put you in touch with someone who can.

If you would like help finding discounted travel accommodations or learn more about how a Midwest Outdoor Resort membership can save you money, give me a call!
