RV’s are the Top Travel Experience this Summer

RV’s are the Top Travel Experience this Summer

With COVID-19 not slowing down, travel has been halted this summer. Our favorite spots may be closed, partially open or too risky to visit making it a tough time to go anywhere. Something we have seen more lately are RV’s. By renting or owning an RV, you can go anywhere you want within the United States and bypass the risk of flying. You can take your immediate family members and don’t need to interact with anyone else if you don’t want to. America has some of the most beautiful campgrounds and RV parks in every state that are worth exploring. Getting out into nature is good for the soul and we think now is the best time to get out and enjoy it. Our friends at Giant Recreation World can help you with an RV rental or purchase. They have been in the business for decades and have serviced tens of thousands of happy customers over the years. They can provide you with your...

What's even worse is that as the senior population continues to grow, food insecurity among adults is increasing. In 2016 alone, 8% of senior households lacked basic food.
