The Only Thing Constant in Life is Change
Owning vacations has been a constant for
decades, only WHAT we own has evolved. Through the 60’s, vacations
were typically a couple of weeks at the family owned cabin. Changing
lifestyles saw a world become more mobile and fly–to vacation
destinations more desirable. The 70’s introduced
timeshare ownership to meet this desire. Timeshare created flexibility through
an exchange program with worldwide vacations choices. Another change in lifestyle
emerged in the 80’s with the busy baby boomers. The one–week
vacation offered by timeshare was a luxury many didn’t have time for.
Demanding careers and busy children left little time for much needed family
vacations. Several two or three day getaways were preferred over the traditional
full week vacation. In 1989 Trendwest created WorldMark with a vacation ownership
flexible enough to accommodate ever–changing lifestyles…constantly.
WorldMark credits are a vacation currency that you own. The number of credits
you purchase is deposited annually into a WorldMark account to spend as YOU
chose. A couple of weeks at the lake every year, exchange into a world-class
resort for a week or spend a couple of days at a drive-to resort. How long
you stay is up to you and only limited by the number of vacation credits
WorldMark credits give you ultimate flexibility. You don’t own in a particular
season, in a particular unit or at a single resort. You own all them! All resort
locations (more than 50 currently), everything from a studio to a four-bedroom penthouse.
Nearby or far away. By the ocean, mountains, lakes or the desert. Small enough
or big enough to fit whatever lifestyle you’re living today! Single?
Couple? Small family? Large family? Grandparents? Empty nesters? WorldMark
has the perfect vacation for you.
Trendwest pioneered the Drive-to Resort concept with the creation of WorldMark.
WorldMark resorts were designed to make 2- or 3-day getaways easy. Most WorldMark
resorts are within a 2- to 5-hour drive of the metropolitan areas where Trendwest
markets. These areas include Seattle and Portland as well as several cities
in California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and Missouri. In fact, 80%
of WorldMark resorts are drive-to resorts. Of course we all dream of going
to the other 20%—exotic locations including Hawaii, Fiji, Mexico and
WorldMark South Pacific's resorts in Australia. Visit it our resort
