Anyone who says living large is the best way to go hasn’t spent a night in a tiny home. The trend has really taken off in recent years, with homeowners ditching their square footage for a much smaller footprint that’s far more affordable, more ecologically sustainable and more mobile. Not sure you’re ready to downsize, or maybe you’re just curious? Rent a tiny home for your next vacation and experience it yourself. Here are 8 wonderful tiny homes you can book right now on Travelocity.
