Whatever happened to good, old-fashioned road trips? Many of us think about packing up, grabbing a group of friends, and taking off for a while, yet we rarely make it out of the driveway. Dreams of driving with the wind in your hair and feet dangling out the window can, unfortunately, seem like a fantasy. Thankfully, Peace Vans Rentals, which opened Feb. 16 in Seattle, makes life on the road a reality.
With its fully restored Volkswagen camper rentals, built between 1987 and 1991, its Vanagons are a cure for all your road trip nostalgia. Weekend warriors, baby boomers, and modern nomads can now pile into a Westfalia model van and explore the road. Each van sleeps up to four adults comfortably, but why not grab a few extra people and sleep under the stars? If you’re going for the complete van experience, we recommend it.
That kind of carefree attitude is what you’ll find on the open road, but don’t worry if you can’t fully get into the hippie lifestyle. Each van lets you bring a little slice of home with you. Combining comfort with functionality, Vanagons come equipped with a built-in stove, sink, cookware, utensils, and ample storage. Peace Vans understands that coffee is essential, so a French press coffeemaker and fresh, local beans are provided. Washington wine and spirits, and other gourmet treats can be added upon special request.
Summer is on the way, so it’s the perfect time to plan your next vacation. Journey down the coast or check out one of the 407 national parks that the United States has to offer. With the National Park Service Centennial happening this year, it’s the best time to go. As part of the celebration, there will be 16 days of free admission to 127 national parks. Campsites will be filling up quickly, so make sure to plan ahead!
