Holiday Travel to Florida in a 15 Passenger Van Rental in RI

It’s time to pack up your 15 passenger van rental in Rhode Island and hit the road to Florida.

Remember the thrill of the holiday season as a child? The crisp air, scratchy wool gloves, a faint smell of chimney smoke. As night fell, twinkling lights lining the neighborhood houses glistened, transferring you to a magical, wintry North Pole. The Christmas season was so delightful then, full of promise and joy.  

Now, that air feels downright cold. Pulling on gloves is just another morning task before a long, grueling day trudging through day-old snow. Odorless fires turn on with the click of a button. And who wants to spend an agonizing afternoon on the roof hooking up Christmas lights? 

It’s time to go to Florida.

Why a 15 passenger van rental in Rhode Island is an essential piece of your Holiday Road Trip.

So you rent a large passenger van rental in Rhode Island with Greenvans. There’s plenty of space to fit your kids, your pets, your partner and your things. Possibly more than you need but bring it anyway! It will surely fit in your 15 passenger rental van!

Moreover, it’s the holidays! What better place to cultivate that magical togetherness than on the road?

We suggest bundling up for the evening cruise, as historical buildings on the river banks gleam with lights. If your trip is adults-only, check out the festive Dickenson booze cruise.

Is this a passenger van…or your living room?

The long ride to Charleston is a great time to play games and make playlists. For families with young kids, I Spy, if briefly, helps to keep everyone disconnected from devices. Older children and teenagers may appreciate trivia.

Consider making a playlist that includes each person’s favorite holiday song. Let the van serve as your living room, where loved ones gather to connect and interact.

Charleston, SC

Driving time from Williamsburg: 7hr

Suggested overnights: 2-3

Charleston is, without a doubt, one of the most charming towns in America. Immerse yourself in a Festival of Lights, listen to the Charleston Caroling Company, sip on hot cider, or enjoy a Christmas tour with High Tea. Children will revel in a 30-minute holiday sleigh ride to Santa’s magic stable, where hot cocoa and cookies await.

The real memories are made on the road, in the van.

The end of your road trip is an ideal moment to reflect. Being in a passenger van from Rhode Island to Florida together gives everyone the chance to share their favorite destination, activity, or restaurant. Before the final stop, talk about your trip together and the memories you’ve created. The destinations might be the main attraction, but it’s the conversations, laughter and time spent together inside that van which will stand out for years to come.
