Celebrating Valentine’s Day in Your RV

Valentine's Day Picnic

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to mean five-star restaurants and three-digit checks for dinner. The day is about reconnection and showing appreciation for the person you hold dearest. Spending Valentine’s Day in your RV is a memorable way to do just that, and in Baird, Texas, it’s quite easy to have a romantic getaway.

Head to camp

If you want to make a night or more of Valentine’s Day, Baird is a short trip from several great RV parks. From the Road Runner RV Park to the Bridgeview RV Park, you’ve got plenty of local options to consider. Whether you want to go on a hike, take a ride on your bikes, put together a lovely picnic, or just kick back in a lawn chair and watch the sunset, spending time away is easy at a local campground.

Take away distractions

It’s awfully easy to spend hours scrolling through social media, but for Valentine’s Day, the only thing you should be falling into is your partner’s arms. Make a pledge to put your phones away and leave them charged up in your RV. Then, you can have a candlelit dinner under the stars without unnecessary distractions.

The first step to having a romantic Valentine’s Day in your RV is to have an RV. If you’re looking for a new or used RV, visit Hanner RV Supercenter in Baird, and we’ll help you find the right model.

Camping Games for the Whole Family

Family Fun | Baird TX

If you’re looking for a new way to entertain the little ones as well as the rest of your family on your next camping trip, try out these camping games. After a day spent swimming, fishing and hiking, these games can help the fun continue.

Flashlight tag

Once the sun sets, flashlight tag is a great way to burn off some energy. The tagger uses a flashlight to seek out others and then tags someone by pointing the light at them. If you’re tagged, you take the flashlight and begin looking for players.

Races

Potato sack races are a tradition for many family picnics. If you don’t have any potato sacks, you can use trash bags to hop to your designated finish line.

Scavenger hunt

Come up with a list of items for your family to find at your campsite or on trails and then head out on a scavenger hunt. These items could include objects of certain colors, types of flowers and more.

Ring toss

As you sit outside your RV, you can start a ring toss game by simply placing a stick vertically into the ground. You can then try to toss rings, like a piece of rope tied in a circle or a glow stick bracelet, over the stick.

We at Hanner RV Supercenter hope you have a fantastic camping trip. Before hitting the road, check out our available RVs.

4 Reasons Why Young Families Should Buy an RV

Why Young Families Should Buy an RV

RVs often conjure up images of retirees selling their homes and heading out to explore the open country in their golden years. But increasingly, younger families are purchasing new RVs. Here are some reasons why young families should buy an RV.

Vacations Aren’t Just For Retirement

Why wait until you are retired to explore the world? Negotiate for more vacation time instead of that small annual raise, and then take your family out on a cross-country adventure. The bonus? You’ll save money by traveling in an RV because you won’t have to worry about plane tickets or exorbitantly high hotel prices.

RVs Have All The Tech Features You Need

Younger generations rely on technology now more than ever. Luckily, most RVs offer entertainment systems and Bluetooth® connectivity.

Safety Features Are State-Of-The-Art

Safety is important no matter what vehicle you drive. New RVs like Jayco models come with the safety features that parents want for their kids, like side-view and backup cameras or external lights that signal your driving intentions more clearly.

Stains Are Not A Problem

Some RVs come with a number of stain-proof materials, perfect for families with young children. Materials like carpets with stain guard, vinyl flooring, and seamless countertops make cleaning a piece of cake.
