When most people think of visiting Florida for vacation they think of theme parks. However, Florida has a lot to offer outside of the tourist center, and that includes our beautiful beaches. The Wyndham Vacation Resort’s Wyndham Royal Vista Pompano Beach, Florida sits directly on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Check-in is a breeze, both figuratively and literally as there are huge palm fronds fanning you at the desk. They are gorgeous and add a sense of style and welcome.
While we live in an RV, we also take many side trips away from “home,” and stay in motels, just like anyone else would do taking a trip from their home. Our method of traveling gives us the best of both worlds! When we visit with the grandchildren, we usually get a motel room with two double beds and let one of them spend the night with us each night. It makes for some pretty fun “slumber parties,” and lets us get to spend one on one time with them. When they come to visit us, we all pack into the RV and have a campfire in the evening. Since we don’t see them often, when we do, we spoil them rotten!
