Mountains vs Beaches for Summer Trips


Summer is here and that means it’s time to decide where to go for vacation. If you’re having trouble narrowing your choices, consider a visit to the beach or mountains. Both have their up and downsides, but they’re also both great for an RV trip. This really boils down to personal preference and what you want out of a vacation with your family and friends. Luckily for Pan Pacific RV customers, you can probably visit both if you can’t choose – California has both, after all!

Heading up the Mountain

Mountains provide a great environment for seclusion and relaxation. As an RVer, you can expect plenty of seclusion whether you spend your time in your RV, camp outside, or rent a cabin. While mountains can get a bit chilly, summertime is perfect if you want to enjoy the mountains without packing a coat. Enjoy hiking, climbing, biking, and much more. The mountains offer stunning views and lots of opportunities for photography and wildlife viewing.

Hitting the Beach

On the flipside, there are several reasons you may want to visit a beach for your summer vacation. Summer is perfect beach weather. Maybe you love the feel of sand between your toes. Maybe you love the smell of the ocean air as you lounge in your chair. There are activities such as beach volleyball, soccer and an array of watersports that you can partake in as well. If you don’t mind crowds, the beach may be your choice during the summer. There are chances to meet new people and explore new areas.

Both have their pros and cons, but you really can’t go wrong. The best vacation is the one you take, so pack up that RV and hit the road today!
