Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Canoeing a beautiful Florida River

Carefree RV Resorts are a great base for Florida adventure

Last year I spent two weeks in sunny Florida. I actually did not spend one day on a beach. There is more to Florida than Disney World and beaches.  If you love Disney World and beautiful beaches, then Florida is great for you. I love Florida for its rivers, swamps, and birds. Someday I could see myself spending more time there in order to avoid a 20 hour road trip from Chicago. Carefree RV Resorts and affordable Florida vacation homes are within reach whatever your reason is for visiting Florida.

Although I am not yet ready to retire, I would love to have a base in Florida. Florida has so much to offer for the adventure traveler. You can swim with manatees, kayak thousands of miles of coastlines, and canoe beautiful pristine rivers. The bird and animal life is exquisite with a heron, egret, osprey, or ibis nearly on every tree.

What is a Park Model Home

A Park Model is a smaller, single-wide home that is considered a recreational vehicle. Park Models are designed for placement in RV resorts, campgrounds, or locations where smaller trailers are an acceptable living environment.

Looks like a great base for adventure for me

A typical Park Model is a single structure and is shorter and narrower than a Manufactured Home. They typically have one bedroom, one bath, an eat-in kitchen and living room. Park Models are typically eight to thirteen feet wide and have one or two bedrooms. They are under 500 sq ft.
