HOME ON THE ROAD Owning an RV has its pros and cons, but I would have to say that overall I really enjoy the perks of having this mini-house when traveling.
It's so much more homey and personal than a hotel room. It makes for much more comfortable sleeping arrangements. And, one of my favorite parts, it allows Charlie the Beagle to come with us on family vacations. But something I feel like a lot of people overlook, even though it is so unique, about RV travel is the ability to stay in beautiful campgrounds. When you think "campground," you probably think about setting up a tent on dirt, getting eaten by bugs, and low-grade restrooms. But that is very rarely the case.

There are plenty of absolutely gorgeous RV campgrounds out there, and I will be the first to say that Bluewater Key RV Resort played a huge role in making our trip to the Florida Keys so special. I looked forward to coming home at the end of the day because our campsite was picture perfect. I didn't feel a need to rush to get ready in the mornings because part of the beauty of the Keys was right outside my door. I swear it could have been a postcard. We had a luxurious waterfront site with a dock, and the grounds were well-kept, which made walking Charlie a pleasure. We even had a tiki hut, and who doesn't love a good tiki hut? I highly, highly recommend this RV resort if you're traveling to the Keys in this fashion. It will seriously make your trip.

2950 US Hwy 1, Key West FL 33040
(305) 745-2494

Every site at this campground is privately owned, which means each site is well taken care of and has its own unique touch. There are waterfront, canal, and poolside sites, but I would definitely choose a waterfront site over the rest. You'll be able to swim in the clear, blue water, and you'll have a significantly better view. The expense will be worth it. Pets are welcome as well. Just keep in mind that there are RV size and type requirements to stay at this campground. It's also only about 10 or 15 minutes from downtown Key West, which I really loved - close enough to the action but far enough away to enjoy the peacefulness of the Keys. Also, summer is the off-season, which means way less people and cheaper rates. Happy camping!

The water looked like glass.
