Summer is almost upon us, but it’s not too late to find that perfect place to spend those vacation days. Whether it’s with family, friends, or solo, vacation time is best enjoyed when you know you’ve planned it right.
It seems like everyone is traveling for their vacations these days. More than 3 out of 4 travelers domestically are taking their trips for some kind of leisure purpose, and almost half of all Americans take a summer vacation away from home. When polled about what were the most favorite vacation destinations, the respondents declared that staying at the beach was the most desirable trip (45%), while cities (42%), national parks (21%), lakes (17%) , and resorts (14%) followed.
Many who stay at the beach for any length of time, whether it’s a day trip or a stay for a week or more, have a favorite beach they like to revisit time and again. Vacation rentals at or very near the beach can get sold out pretty early in the rental season. Oceanfront condo rentals are usually the first to go, though you might be able to find one if you enlist the help of the right real estate agent. They know all of the rentals available and would be more than happy to aid you in your quest for the perfect beach condos.
Depending on the time of year, oceanfront condo rentals can be easy or difficult to find. Obviously, if you are on the east coast, for example, and you’re looking for beach condo rentals in July, you’re liable to find exactly zero units available, and if one is available, the price will likely be sky high. However, if you’re looking in September for Myrtle Beach oceanfront condos, you will have a much better chance of finding one for rent and at a good price to boot.
Sometimes, it’s timing that means everything. Planning for an off-peak rental is usually the least expensive way to spend your vacation, but you have to weigh the pros and cons. While oceanfront condo rentals might be less expensive after Labor Day, will there be enough in the way of activities for your kids? Then again, if you have no children and just want some peace and quiet so that you can read the new James Patterson book, after Labor Day might just be the perfect time for you to head out.
Aside from family vacations, and maybe in addition to them, there is a newer trend called “Celebration Vacations.” These are vacations where travelers stay somewhere to celebrate a special occasion. Roughly 69% of the leisure travelers out there are taking a celebration vacation and because there is a special occasion to be celebrated, it is most often at least and overnight stay. Whether these celebrants are staying hotels or oceanfront condo rentals, they are all looking for the best vacation they can get. Are you?
