What You'll Get
Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a one-night stay at an RV or tent site, plus a kayak rental and a surrey bike rental, at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina in Newport Beach (a $170 value).
A beachfront oasis filled with towering palms and user-friendly sand, Newport Dunes offers campers scenes of distant mountaintops and an entertaining outdoor venue that's great for escaping homes and high-maintenance gardens. Choose to either spend a night at one of the 382 RV sites or slumber at a tent site that includes two-cots tent and a fire-ring for easy up and has a picnic table and pouches of instant fire. Customers can also enjoy a two-hour kayak rental and a one-hour Surrey bike rental—each rental is valid for two people and provides ideal respite for campers who prefer paddling through cerulean waters or exploring bike trails to sleeping all day. Guests who choose to stay at the RV park are rewarded for their choice with a 20% discount at Newport Dunes' Back Bay Bistro.
