It's whatever you want it to be.

If you are looking for a community, go for the snowbird parks (florida, arizona south texas), they have tons of activities planned.

If you want to be alone, boondocking is an option.

Or you can move along every so often if you get bored with a destination.

Just keep in mind...you aren't on vacation...if you have a down day (or 3), it's OK, you don't have to hit 3 tourist sites per day...unless you want to.

Good advice, relax enjoy life. Find out what is going on around the park your in. Talk over a cup of coffee and realize this is the best time of your life. Do your due diligence and see what is going on locally.

Or you can move along every so often if you get bored with a destination.

Best advise! A lot of people up north say "have a great vacation". I used to explain that it's not a vacation it's just living in a different place. Eventually I stopped explaining and say "Thank you".

Many of the private parks post their monthly activity calendar on their website. If you find a park that interests you this is the time to check it out as the January/February/March calendars in the south usually have a lot more activities on them than the summer months.

"Down time" has been quite a problem for me; less so as I get older. Assume you are referring to when in campgrounds. We try to get in 1 good walk of 40 min. or more each day. Read, watch too much TV if available, sit outside a lot, weather permitting. We check out the surrounding area and attractions with the car we tow. Always Walmart, eat out once or twice a week. Campgrounds are unpredictable when it comes to making friends. Sometimes make friends right away, sometimes never. Campgrounds with open spaces are best rather than ones where you are isolated from neighbors with vegetation. Winter's short days are tough because you camp to be outside.

We spend 3 months in San Diego during the summer. The RV resort has planned activities both inside the park and to venues outside the park. Personally I use the time to decompress since I work during the week and visit my DW on the weekends. I do take 2 weeks off at the beginning and a week off at the end but some of those days are spent setting up and tearing down our 5th wheel & spot.

I do golf with some of the other rv'ers and I spend most evenings in the pool & spa.

We look for interesting things to do where we are. You never know what you will find on the Sunday drive. We try to find a Frank Lloyd Wright house that's open to the public, aviation and car museums, and scenery.

We also like to scout the area for other campgrounds in the area in case we come back this way.

Then there's the endless list of chores - waxing the rig etc.
