Have you ever taken a vacation out of state? Maybe Florida or California? Well, if you did, you probably took an airplane. Airplanes may get you to your destination quick, but there is definitely a more fun way to travel. Traveling long distances in a recreational vehicle (RV) is the way to go!

My family and I travel every year to Florida in our RV. We get up early for the adventure and drive all day. While driving, we get to see so many wonderful sights along the way. We're hardly bored because we can play on our iPads, watch movies on TV, work on arts and crafts projects or play board games. Sometimes we just look out the windows and check out the beauty of America. When we stop for gas or for a meal, we get to see many different people from all over the country. While driving, if we are hungry, dad doesn't need to stop. We just go to the refrigerator or cupboard and take a snack. It's even easier when someone needs to go to the bathroom. Our RV has a kitchen, a bathroom with a shower, and beds enough for our entire family.

Even though it may be faster to travel on an airplane, traveling in our RV is much more fun. Plus we get to spend more time with one another.
