Here are our top picks for RV destinations in 2016:
Most adventurers at heart will stop in the American Southwest at some point, to marvel at red rocks and transport themselves to the scenes of iconic cowboy films. The southern part of Utah and Northern part of Arizona will land you in a region where slick rock and canyons are king. Utah’s national park network is quite impressive, boasting five parks all within an hour or two of one another. Bryce Canyon, Arches, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and the popular Zion are the parks you can choose from, or go big and hit all five! Make sure to bring your camera for the famous sites, and hiking shoes to enjoy a range of hikes for newbies and experts alike. The adventure doesn’t end in Utah, however, as just three hours south of these parks sits one of the most renowned parks in the country, the Grand Canyon. Spend some time marveling at this world wonder, and decide where to venture next!
A destination appropriate for almost any time of year, and extremely popular in the RV community specifically, is the diverse state of Florida. At 500 miles long, the “Sunshine State” has much to explore, and with an RV you have the perfect travel setup for this adventurous destination. Beach camping is almost too easy, with gorgeous camping spots along all sides of Florida offering views that can’t be beat. Or decide to make your way through the entire state with a scenic drive down the Florida Keys, which includes a hundred mile drive with crystal blue waters on each side. Moving inland, RVers can enjoy other Florida gems, such as Everglades National Park or the many theme parks and attractions found in Orlando.
A Music and Food Tour
If trying new foods and experiencing culture is important to your RV travels, navigate your way through the good ‘ol south. In the state of Tennessee, for instance, you can find great barbecue all around, as well as musical history in Nashville and Memphis. Head further south to experience New Orleans, where you can indulge in Cajun delights, resounding Jazz tunes, and even some history. For even more good food and music, you can’t go wrong with heading to Texas. Austin is known for its vibrant music scene, and other cities such as San Antonio and Houston can be enjoyed for their mix of cultures and popular “Tex-Mex” cuisine. In between big eats and city life, you can always find yourself a state or national park to unplug and unwind.
With opportunities to experience the desert, coast, and mountains, California is the perfect place for RV explorers. For snowbird season, you can enjoy the Palm Springs area and Joshua Tree National Park, both desert spots whose sun and gorgeous views make them very popular with the RV community. One way to experience California in its entirety is driving the Pacific Coast Highway or the “PCH”. Starting from San Diego, you can make your way through Southern California staples, laidback central coast towns, bustling San Francisco, and the treasures of Northern California, such as the majestic Redwoods. Or check out the eastern section of California, where you can explore and enjoy Death Valley National Park, Lake Tahoe, Lassen Volcanic National Park, and Yosemite National Park. No matter which route you take, you are guaranteed gorgeous and exciting views through the windows of your RV.
