6 Destinations for an Outdoor Workation

Travel Inspiration

Work and play are no longer two different seasons of life. With remote work (or school) here to stay, we wanted to remind you that working from home doesn’t always have to be working from home. Lean into the flexibility of remote by going on a workation! Here at RVshare we like to call them ‘hush trips’. So, what exactly are workations?

Simply put workations = work + vacation coming together to bring you a burst of inspiration and a new backyard for after-work activities. They get you outside your home but keep you connected allowing you to clock-in and save the paid time off. Workations are a great way to spend more time outdoors. If you are a nature lover, hiking enthusiast or adventure seeker then this is for you. Expand your travels past your allotted PTO with a workation that connects you to the outdoors. Your day can be much more than the hours you work, and we are on a mission to inspire you to use those extra hours outdoors. These destination were carefully curated for outdoorsy people like you!
