For Hilton Grand Vacations Owners, there’s always a reason to travel, whether you’re up for an extended vacation to a faraway destination or you’d rather sneak away for a weekend staycation. No matter what kind of trip you’re craving, we’ve got plenty of vacation ideas

Here Are Five Vacation Ideas for Your Next Great Vacation

1. Reconnect with loved ones.      

Family vacations are the perfect way to reconnect after a year without the usual birthday and holiday visits to grandparents and cousins. A clan-wide get-together in Orlando is an event to have you counting down.

Hilton Grand Vacations’ spacious Suites are where families can share meals and relax after a fun-filled day in the Sunshine State. Make a day of going to the beach or take an excursion to see the beauty of Central Florida at Lake Louisa State Park, and then return to your resort to watch a movie and share a meal. 

"We purchased Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare to spend more meaningful time with our family. So, it was only natural that once we started regularly vacationing with Hilton Grand Vacations, we’d bring my mom along."

— Fallon S.

2. Get away with friends.      

After so many Zoom hangouts and virtual interactions, now is the time to plan quality time with your good friends. From the lights of the glamorous Strip and fantastic restaurants to the funk of Freemont Street and the breathtaking landscapes of Red Rock Canyon, a trip to Las Vegas has something for everyone.

If your travel crew's style includes palm trees and idyllic beaches, consider a getaway to Hawaii, Sint Maarten or Florida. No matter your travel style, a friend-cation is just the way to make your new favorite memories. 

"Of all the benefits of Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare, I’d say one of our favorites is sharing our holidays with friends at incredible travel destinations."

3. Put romance on your list. 

Adventuring with the special person in your life can reignite sparks and strengthen your bond. A Hawaiian escape will inspire romance. From the relaxed pace to stunning tropical vistas, it’s an ideal destination for reconnecting.

4. Prioritize wellness with a spiritual escape. 

Sedona, Arizona, is known for its peace, tranquility and stunning red sandstone backdrop. If your travel goals include reaching inner peace, this is the spot to explore. With hundreds of hiking trails, you can breathe in the fresh air and then return to your accommodations for plenty of room to stretch through a yoga session with a view to fuel your gratitude. It’s the perfect place to salute the sun.

"Sedona is known as one of the top ‘healing’ communities in the United States because of its vortexes. We found numerous crystal shops throughout Oak Creek and Sedona. Additionally, Sedona contains some of the finest art galleries in the country."

5. Discover classic Americana on a road trip. 

Whether you’re looking for a family vacation or a solo escape, consider taking to the open road for an all-American road trip. With Hilton Grand Vacations properties in popular drive-to destinations such as the Great Smoky MountainsMyrtle Beach and Southern California, you can skip the airport on your next getaway.

Explore a scenic bike ride or hike in the Smoky Mountains, break out the clubs for a round or two of golf in Myrtle Beach or dig your toes in the sand along the Golden Coast. 

"When you get creative and make each journey adventurous, you can enjoy two different experiences in one trip. We plan to explore South Carolina on a road trip between Ocean Oak Resort, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club on Hilton Head Island and Liberty Place Charleston, a Hilton Club, although the options are endless."

— Sue M.
