Most people use their timeshares to take a single or a few week long trips to one destination... Usually they fly and stay for a continuous vacation. But timeshare companies now make it possible for you to do road trips. In this example with HGVMax, I show you how you can travel within California.

Each of the Resorts has similar number of Points for the week, so you can use the weekly point values as a way to budget both your points and your maintenance costs (I use 14 cents a point for the example). It is time for you to hit the road with a little California Dreaming.

Here are reviews I have done
1) Hilton Grand Vacations Club MarBrisa Carlsbad
2) Grand Pacific Palisades Resort one Bedroom
3) Review of Hilton Grand Vacations Carlsbad Seapointe Resort One Bedroom
4) Two Bedroom Riviera Beach Resort Review by Hilton Vacation Club in Dana Point Ca
5) Tahoe Seasons Resort One Bedroom - Coming Soon
