We camp. Our northern Ontario provincial parks are all wonderful. Varied terraine and secluded sites. We could spend months just walking, hiking and sitting by the bonfire. The only shopping or site seeing I need is the grocery store to restock.

Most of the time we are out and about. We try to take in as much as possible. We often take the grandchildren, and they love to go on "missions". We go to parks, museums, art shops, antiques, fish, take photos. We spend a fair amount of time in Key West, and have local friends that we spend time with. We have what I consider a nice motorhome, but it is basically a place to crash.

To wander or not

A bit of both....however, it depends upon where you camp...we often head on down to the Keys and camp on Long Key, in the state park. When the ocean is literally ten feet from your front door, offering some of the best kayaking, fishing, diving and sunsets in the world....why leave to go anywhere else?!

Both, but I'm good with staying at the campground. We mainly stay at state / county campgrounds that provide some privacy. Swimming, snorkling, boating, walking, cycling, and just relaxing with friends around a night fire.

To the Michigan responses, can't wait to go back! Would stay at Wilderness for 3-4 days a do the UP from there, back down to Traverse City, want to kayak the river! And take in as much as we missed this past trip. DW and I too like to go out and see what's around us, and to see how the other folks live where we re visiting. However, Wilderness was just so darn beautiful, quiet, friendliest Rangers we ever encountered it was hard to leave daily and when it was time to head back to WNY State.

We never go anywhere there isn't water of some kind. Lakes, creeks, rivers, ponds or ocean, doesn't matter as long as it's wet. An 11'-8" RIB is carried in the truck bed along with a 9.9hp outboard and it gets wet every day. I love to fish and DW just likes to explore small rivers and creeks.
The TT is our home away from home, so yes, we do a lot of exploring and sightseeing while using the unit as a basecamp.
I have no clue why my attachments end up sideways.

If we wanted to stay in the campground with our camper, we would park in our driveway, roast hotdogs on our portable barbecue...and save the difference. Seriously, life is too short and there is so much to see and experience. We can't afford to sit still except in the evenings after a day of exploring another piece of this great creation. Our MH is considered the "basecamp" for venturing out in the toad. Once we're satisfied we've seen enough of one area, we pack up and head for the next one. That normally results in 2 -3 days in the same location.

We use our Solera as our "hotel room on wheels". We bought the motorhome so we could travel, take our dog, and see the beautiful USA. That said, sometimes it's nice to just hang at the CG or RV park, and relax or chat with others in the campground.

We always stay in State Parks where you have more privacy. We enjoy hanging around the campsite and just relaxing. Our weeks at work are crazy and we cherish the downtime. Fishing, long walks, paddle boats, reading, and a nice campfire in the evening are our relaxation.
