Tips for Fitness Vacations

Do you have a fitness vacation on your bucket list? It’s such a great idea to combine fitness with adventure travel to explore new places. Combining exercise, new or proven sports with vacations is all the rage. Follow the advice from these professional travel agents to ensure your fitness vacation exceeds your expectations.

If you have a specific event that you would like to participate in, such as a marathon, the dates have basically been set for you. Decide if you want to extend your trip prior to the event or after the event. If you’re up for a new adventure such as hiking the Appalachian Mountain Trail or spending a week learning to sail, check out the options for solo or group participants on their respective websites.  You travel agent can recommend something entirely new within your budget, activity level, interests and time frame. Step out of your comfort zone and attempt to conquer a sport or activity you’ve yet to try.

When booking your accommodations, ensure that they are close enough to your event venue that you won’t be spending a lot of time each day traveling back and forth.  Consider taking advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and enjoy the great car rental rates offered by Enterprise. The options for accommodations are nearly as unlimited as the fitness activities from which to choose. An ever increasingly popular travel option is to book a private home or apartment at your destination. There are multiple websites that list private homes for rental. Be sure to communicate directly with the owner via phone or email prior to sending any payment. Unfortunately, scammers abound in every industry and renters of private homes are not immune. This will allow for much more room to spread out than a typical hotel room. You’ll also be able to prepare dinners and enjoy them at a leisurely pace in your private kitchen.

Prepare to take plenty of pictures and enjoy the adventure of a lifetime.
