Best Ways to Celebrate 4th of July

Posted by Mia Reid on Mar 22, 2019 1:00:00 PM

Independence Day is coming up, have you made plans yet?

One of the most celebrated holidays in the United States across every town and city, the Fourth of July is prime vacation time. Sparklers, fireworks and waving flags make for symbols of summer—which means family vacation time!

2018 broke records with the most travelers vacationing 50 miles or more. A breaking record of 46.9 million Americans were on the move! You might have noticed July Fourth pictures and videos on your social media feeds as friends and families got together to celebrate.

Have you thought about your July Fourth plans yet? If you’re looking for a guaranteed vacation on Independence Day every year (or any time you would like!), buy a timeshare now so you have it just in time for July 4, 2019.

Benefits to Vacation Ownership

You may be wondering how a timeshare will bring you the most memorable vacations. Aren’t they supposed to be a scam? Have you been told to “run!” when a timeshare seller wants to take you on a presentation? This may have been the case years ago, but the timeshare industry has taken a turn for the better. In fact, ARDA reported that the timeshare industry is celebrating its eighth consecutive year of revenue growth. Your grandparents may have purchased a timeshare that was used for vacationing at the same resort, for the same week every year. This is still a common option with timeshares, but more companies like Wyndham or Hilton are making points systems to allow for more flexibility and customization.

Instead of booking a reservation at a hotel this holiday, where you are cramped into a suite with maybe two beds and a cot, stretch out in a luxurious timeshare resort and guarantee a vacation every year. Plus, hotel room prices spike tremendously during big events like the Fourth of July, but your timeshare ownership will never rise in price—you already own it!

Travel with friends or the whole family using your new vacation ownership and let everyone have their own private space in a beautiful resort complete with crystal clear pools, great dining options and in the best destinations.

The closing process for timeshare resales is typically between 60 to 90 days. Call us today to ensure you buy a timeshare just in time for July Fourth.
