Halloween for Homebodies
Want to stay in the RV for Halloween? Make your own fun!
- Carve a Pumpkin. Find pumpkins in any grocery store and make your own Jack o’ Lantern.
- Play beach volleyball – Paint the volleyball orange like a pumpkin and put a face on it – Hey look! It’s another Jack o’ Lantern.
- Make some more S’Mores! All you need are graham crackers, chocolate Hershey bars, and marshmallows. Make them Spooky S’Mores with spooky peeps! Just put the chocolate bar on the graham cracker, toast the marshmallow over the grill or campfire, and plop the ooey-gooey spooky peep onto the candy bar. The chocolate will melt a little bit from the heat of the marshmallow, causing your kiddo to say, “Mom! Gimme s’more!”
Whether you want to splash in the Gulf or swim in the pool, stroll in the moonlight or relax under the palms, Stella Mare RV Resort has all the amenities and activities to make your October vacation an adventure you’ll long remember.
