At the end of 2022, more than 25 percent of employees in the U.S. were working remotely at least part-time. Among the perks of most work-from-home jobs is the chance to work remotely from somewhere other than your home—such as a private Zion Bungalow!
If your job allows you to work remotely, consider planning a working vacation. This can be a great chance to take advantage of your job’s flexibility. It can give you the freedom to travel during the off-season, while most other travelers are forced to wait for the summer or holidays. Planning a working trip also allows you to save your vacation time, while still enjoying a relaxing getaway.
The Bungalows at Zion is a great destination for your next working vacation. Thinking about planning a productive getaway? Keep reading to learn a few tips to ensure that you get your work done and still get to enjoy a great vacation!
Skip the Chain Hotels
The first step in planning a working vacation is choosing where to stay. Avoid booking a standard chain hotel. These are far from a comfortable option, and usually offer limited space to work. At best, you’ll have a table or desk placed close to your bed. You’ll be left feeling cramped and unmotivated.
Instead, opt for an alternative lodging option like a vacation rental. You’ll enjoy more space, as well as many homey comforts, like a kitchenette, a couch for lounging after a long day, and often some outdoor space as well. Depending on which ZIon vacation rental you book, you’ll also enjoy a dedicated workspace.
Each of our private Zion Bungalows features a dedicated workspace perfect for cranking out a day’s work on your laptop. Many of these workspaces even face a window, allowing you to enjoy the stunning views while you work. In addition to a dedicated workspace, you’ll also have a kitchenette perfect for making easy breakfasts and lunches while you work, a coffee machine, and a couch if you’re someone who prefers to stretch out and work with your laptop on your lap.
Don’t Skimp on Comfort
The last thing that you want to do is skimp on comfort to save a few bucks. On a regular vacation, you might be tempted to save on your lodging because you won’t spend much time there. However, this won’t be the case on a working vacation.
Don’t skimp on comfort. You don’t need to stay at the most expensive property around, but you should stay somewhere that is clean and comfortable. This will help you avoid distractions and make sure that the working part of your day is as relaxing and comfortable as the vacation part.
Luckily, The Bungalows at Zion combines comfort with affordability, making it the obvious choice for a Zion vacation rental.
Consider How You’ll Spend Your Free Time
Depending on your work schedule, you might not have time to do much sightseeing. So it’s important to make sure that you can make the most of the free time that you do have.
If you’re planning a working vacation at Zion vacation rentals, you’re no doubt hoping to have time to visit Zion National Park. But if you stay too far away from the park, you’ll spend a good portion of your day in the car. If you visit during the off-season, you’ll likely run out of daylight before you can spend any time in the park.
Staying in our Zion Bungalows makes it easy to maximize your time in the park. Zion is just minutes away by car, making it easy to drive to the park after you’re done working for the day. If the Zion Canyon Shuttle is in operation, you can hop on the shuttle and leave your car parked at your Bungalow for even easier access.
Set a Schedule
If you work set hours each day, you might not need to worry about this next tip for planning a working vacation. But if you set your own schedule or work flexible hours, another thing that you’ll want to do is set a schedule for yourself during your trip, and stick to it.
The last thing that you want to do is wind up not getting any work done during your trip. Setting a daily schedule or goals for what you want to complete will allow you to hold yourself accountable. When you get done each day, reward yourself with a fun activity, like a hiking trail you’ve wanted to see or an e-bike adventure in Zion.
