(Broadry) — With all the long-term changes that the global pandemic brought us, working remotely has been one of the biggest changes across the globe. With this new remote workforce, gone are the restraints of commuting to the office every day or waiting for the weekend for the much-needed road trip in order to enjoy a change of scenery or to escape your city.
Many people are looking for new ways to take advantage of this environment by looking for experiences that allow for convenient travel, avoid unnecessary contact with other travelers and still experience a trip that allows you to stay connected.
Whether on a vacation or working on the road, guests can find the ideal combination of relaxing, easy to get to destinations, with open spaces and fresh air, and the added bonus of resort-style connectivity at today’s modern RV campground resorts. Why work from home when you can spend the end of summer working in the Pacific Northwest, the fall in the Northeast, and the start of winter in the Florida Keys, soaking up that winter sun?
We’ve researched locations with Wi-Fi installations that will make it easy to jump on that Zoom call and send those timely emails as you work from your RV, cabin, cottage or even tiny house rental. Additionally, there is no need to leave your four-legged friends behind while on the road, as many resorts offer pet friendly rental units and feature onsite amenities like dog parks and pet stations for your traveling companions.
