Legacy Vacation Resorts offers affordable, sustainable vacation experiences and is the first multi-state resort hospitality company in the U.S. to achieve B Corp Certification. It partners with environmental organizations to highlight important initiatives and encourages guests to support other B Corps. 

Green Getaways: Legacy Vacation Resorts Show How to Have Fun Sustainably

“We do this in a variety of approachable ways including an informational, yet comedic in-room video, signage across each property highlighting environmental impact projects like our renewable energy use and water reduction initiatives, as well as information in-room at different touch points to encourage things like recycling and avoidance of single-use items,” says Jared Meyers, CEO of Legacy Vacation Resorts

The company reached carbon neutrality by offsetting 100% of guest stays and activities. Here’s a look at four of its eco-focused properties across the U.S.

Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Just moments from the gondola and within walking distance of shops and restaurants, these suites are steps from world-class skiing in the winter and exhilarating mountain recreation the remainder of the year. Escape on a mountain biking trek, navigate whitewater rapids, fish for river trout, or explore the mountain trails on horseback. Return to the warmth of a dog-friendly condominium for Rocky Mountain-style rest in the hot tub or sauna, a barbecue at the grilling area, or more fun at nine-hole miniature golf onsite.

Indian Shores, Florida

Stunning Gulf Intracoastal Waterway views and the beauty of Florida’s West Coast beaches set a spectacular backdrop for an escape to this tranquil resort near Clearwater Beach and Tampa Bay. With fully equipped studio, one-, and two-bedrooms and elite units, its accommodations also include access to a swimming pool, hot tub, game room, grilling area, and an outdoor deck with magnificent views, beach access, a dock, and boat slips.

Reno, Nevada

A vibrant, diverse destination of sky’s-the-limit casino gaming, world-class outdoor recreation, and thrilling nightlife, Reno, Nevada, is an anything-goes town in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Explore whitewater rapids at the Truckee River, the Reno Aces baseball team, and annual events like the Reno River Festival and Great Balloon Race. Beautifully appointed hotel accommodations and amenities include an indoor pool, saunas, and a sundeck.

Brigantine Beach, New Jersey

Perhaps New Jersey’s best-kept secret, this timeless seaside town is a pristine hideaway from the larger New Jersey beaches. Directly on the white sandy shores of Brigantine Island, this historic beachfront resort is close to the action. Spend the day on the beach, cast a line into the surf, or book a deep-sea fishing charter. Stroll the boardwalk, tee off on a championship golf course, or take a short trip over to Atlantic City. Enjoy spacious, dog-friendly suites, along with a heated indoor pool and a seasonal ocean-view restaurant. The resort achieved 100% renewable electricity through Renewable Energy Certificates.
