Strengthen Family Relationships by Rving

December 31, 2009 by Woodalls Editorial Staff ·  

Today’s fast-paced life often leaves busy parents searching for opportunities to spend quality time together as a family. Increasingly, families are discovering that vacationing in an RV is the best way to cement family relationships while having a great time.

The RV provides the means to hit the road, leave the daily routine and enjoy quality time together.” Many parents also supplement their children’s learning during their RV travels. The Campfire Canvass found that 43 percent of families cite visiting a historic location for educational purposes. Science and nature centers, zoos and ...
