With more and more people vacationing from or near their homes, improving the home environment is quickly becoming the newest fad. If you are an RV owner whose RV might be a primary or secondary home, improving your home environment may mean relocating your RV to the ideal place where you can enjoy true tranquility. We’re going to discuss five reasons why Shady Acres is one of the best locations to have your staycation.
5 Reasons Shady Acres Makes for the Ideal Florida Staycation
1. Enjoy Relaxation, Florida Style
Stay cool in our new full-size gated pool or enjoy a warmer, more relaxing time in our gated jacuzzi. They’re both great places to relax while you’re having your clothes cleaned in the adjoining laundry facilities. Or, if you’d prefer to stay dry, you can rest in one of the lounge chairs encircling either of the two community fire rings we have within the park.
2. On-Site Fitness and Fun
Staying fit is easy to do while you stay at Shady Acres. You can do resistance and cardio training at our outdoor Shady Acres Sports Complex. Or stay active playing one of our many outdoor games like corn hole, shuffleboard, horseshoes, or chess. If you think playing chess isn’t a way to stay physically fit, try spending 30 minutes playing a match on our life-sized chess board with life-sized chess pieces; we guarantee you’ll have a very different opinion afterward.
We are a pet-friendly park, so even your dog will be able to have a good time as it frolics in our recently completed Dog Park. You’ll probably enjoy yourself just as much as your dog as you both navigate the park’s agility obstacles. Once you and your pet are finished, help your canine cool off at one of the many water stations you’ll find in the Dog Park.
3. Ideal Location
Our location in southwest Florida between Fort Myers and Naples places us conveniently within driving distance to many of our favorite local attractions, tourist spots, and services. Here are just a few:
Sanibel Island, located 40 minutes east of us, is famous for its large variety of shells on the beach. Many tourists visit the area to collect some for souvenirs. Ten Thousand Islands is a great spot to fish, kayak, see a variety of wildlife in their natural habit, or spend time relaxing on the beaches of one of the many islands. You will find the islands after driving just over an hour south of our location.
For the more adventurous, you can visit the Florida Panther Refuge. The few hiking trails here are physically challenging but with a little luck, and some help from your accompanying Park Ranger, you just might be able to see one of these rare, endangered panthers that live under protection in this refuge.
Many of our guests find our proximity to so many major grocery stores to be added value. While we do have a small shop on-site, knowing that there is a Costco located 16 minutes north of us, a Walmart Super Center just 12 minutes away, or three area Sam’s Clubs within a 45-minute drive away from us, bring a lot of comfort to our guests.
One could easily spend days window shopping at all the commercial areas located within 30 minutes from the park. Also, there are a plethora of businesses in the area that offer take-out and delivery, so leaving the park to shop is always optional.
Fitness and Fun
Because of its nationwide membership plans and 24/7 access, Planet Fitness is a popular gym for RV owners. Guests with membership at Planet Fitness will be delighted to know that we have a Planet Fitness gym located just nine minutes away. Fitness buffs will notice that at less than 2 ½ miles away, it’s close enough to jog to in the morning, do a full work out, and be back before breakfast.
The Forest Country Club Golf Course is just one of the many golf courses less than 20 minutes away from the Shady Acres. Voted the best in Lee County, this private Club has two 18 holes golf courses spanning across picturesque terrain. Loaded with amenities, the Club is worth paying a visit during your stay.
4. Trip Planning Convenience
Shady Acres has no minimum or maximum stay duration; you can stay with us for as little or as long as you like. Though we may be near many shopping centers and attractions, our park sits far away from the major roads. While staying with us, all you’ll notice is peace, quiet, and perhaps, an occasional duck, turkey, or other wildlife that visits our park to enjoy its serene location.
Plan a trip to visit us during our off-season summer months and enjoy an even greater sense of peace and solitude. Like many of the attractions in the Sunshine State, visitors who visit during off-season periods can enjoy what each attraction has to offer more fully without having to compete with the potential seasonal crowds.
5. On-Site RV Storage
We offer secure RV storage on our premises, a useful option for those who’d like to leave their RV in a secured location to retrieve later. We offer this service from April 2nd until October 31st. We are conveniently located approximately 20 minutes away by car from the Southwest Florida International Airport. Include a vacation in your Florida staycation and leave your RV while you travel to see other parts of the world, then return to retrieve your RV secured with us, safe and sound.
Whether you’re staying for a short while during a layover, for a few days, or an extended stay, you’ll discover that Shady Acres is just the right spot you’re looking for with everything you need. After staying with us, we think you’ll agree that our community truly is “where guests become friends and friends become family.” If you’re ready to start planning your Florida stay, contact us here at Shady Acres; we’ll be happy to help.
