Whether camping is your thing or not, these great ideas will definitely inspire you to hit the road and take a weekend out for an adventure. Whether you are looking for family fun or a couple’s retreat, a trip in the great outdoors can be an enjoyable experience for all.
If you want a beach holiday and your partner wants a camping trip, perhaps a great compromise is a combination of both. Camping on the beach can be super fun, especially when the sun is shining and the weather is warm. Sleeping under the stars to the sound of the waves is also incredibly relaxing, and luckily, you can enjoy this kind of trip all over the world. Before heading out for a beach camping trip, though, you’ll want to make sure you pack some beach friendly supplies. Pitching a tent on the beach requires different gadgets to those you need for pitching a tent on grass. You’ll also want to consider packing a dustpan and brush so that you can easily sweep away any sand from your sleeping quarters. Remember, too, to keep an eye on the tides as you don’t want to get caught out!
The Classic Camper
If you were in the scouts, then you are probably familiar with classic camping. In fact, you’ve probably earned badges for it. Classic camping makes for a great bonding experience with your kids and gives the whole family a break from technology. It can also be a fun way to spend a weekend with your best friends, swapping stories huddled around the campfire, with a can of beer in your hand. My Family Tent has you covered for the perfect big tent to fit everyone in comfortably, so you can all enjoy a great weekend. Remember to pack some board games or sports equipment to keep everyone entertained. And, you can’t go wrong with the ingredients for smores.
If you prefer thrills and adventure to relaxation and tranquility, then perhaps a trip to one of these locations will be more your thing. Whatever extreme sport may take your interest, a camping trip can always be filled with fun and adventure. Campsites often offer fun activities, but if you plan in advance, you can find locations that are located close to adventure activities too. If you want to take it to the really extreme end, it’s also a good idea to look into extreme camping. After all, can you really say you’ve experienced camping until you’ve done so hanging vertically from a steep cliff edge? No, we didn’t think so.
Whoever said camping cannot be romantic is wrong. There are plenty of beautiful, scenic places to go camping that can be very romantic. Let’s not forget the modern trend of glamping, so you can be extra comfortable and go camping in style if you really want to. Some campsites are strictly couples only, so you can have a lovely weekend away or perhaps even a honeymoon. Even if your other half isn’t keen on camping, the warm mood lighting, cozy bedding, and spacious environment of a glamping tent is sure to change their mind!
Cycling Road Trip
If you are really feeling inspired to go on an adventure, why not pack up your bags and hit the road? If you check out your local nature parks, you will probably find that many offer suitable bike trails and camping spots, so you can explore during the day and then set up camp at night. If cycling isn’t your thing, you can always go on a camping road trip from place to place, in the comfort of a caravan or camper van of course. Just remember to pack enough food to sustain your energy levels if you opt for this.
Ditch the phones and laptops for a weekend break camping and submerge yourself in all that nature has to offer. Whether you are looking for an affordable family trip to entertain your kids or a romantic getaway under the stars, camping has so much to offer. Just don’t forget to check your lists of what to take and remember to follow your local camping guidelines – happy camping!
