Top 10 RV Destinations 2017If you live or travel in an RV, you have far more freedom than other travelers. You can take any road you want, go as fast or slow as you want (within legal limits of course), spend the night just about anywhere you want and more. This freedom allows you to go and see virtually everything but deciding what to see can be a challenge. Here is a list of awesome destinations that you and other RVers can go see. Let us know in the comment section which ones you have been to and if your favorite spot is not listed, let us know what it is.
- Yellowstone National Park
Oh my gosh! Yellowstone, the flagship of the National Park system! See Old Faithful, amazing wildlife, stunning geological formations and much, much more. Lots of great campgrounds in and around the park but you may want to make reservations if during the peak season.
- Grand Canyon National Park
It is what it is... a chasm 277 miles long and up to 18 miles wide. It was formed by the Colorado River which flows through the canyon. Check for campgrounds or boondocking locations in the area of the park you plan to visit.
- Redwood National Park
Most visitors know Redwood National and State Parks as home to the world's tallest trees, icons that inspire visions of mist-laden primeval forests bordering crystal-clear streams. But did you know that the parks also protect vast prairies, oak woodlands, and nearly 40 miles of wild coastline, all of which support a rich mosaic of wildlife diversity and cultural traditions? Definitely a must see!
- Crater Lake National Park
No place else on earth combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost two thousand feet high; two picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past. It is a place of immeasurable beauty.
- Colonial Williamsburg
The Historic Area of Colonial Williamsburg stretches over 301 acres, and includes 88 original 18th-century structures. Hundreds of houses, shops and public outbuildings are reconstructed on their original foundations. Some buildings are open to the public, while others are private residences and administrative offices. A flag at a building's entrance indicates that the site is open.
- Blue Ridge Parkway
Outstanding scenery and recreational opportunities make the Blue Ridge Parkway one of the most visited sections of the National Park System. Split-rail fences, old farmsteads, mountain meadows and scenic overlooks with endless vistas make the Blue Ridge Parkway a popular attraction. The Parkway incorporates numerous campgrounds, picnic areas and trails.
- Mount Rushmore National Memorial
Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States. Mount Rushmore features 60-foot sculptures of the heads of former United States presidents (in order from left to right) George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres and is 5,725 feet above sea level.
- Arches National Park
Arches National Park preserves over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, like the world-famous Delicate Arch, as well as many other unusual rock formations. In some areas, the forces of nature have exposed millions of years of geologic history. The extraordinary features of the park create a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures that is unlike any other in the world. Camping information is available here.
- Rapid City, South Dakota
There are so many things to see and do in and around Rapid City, it would take several paragraphs to mention them. The obvious things are Badlands National Park, Mount Rushmore, Dinosaur Park, Bear Country USA, Custer State Park, Devils Tower, Wind Cave National Park and more! If you want to see a whole lot and only go one place, Rapid City, SD is the destination you should set.
- Fall Foliage Tour
Every autumn, nature puts on a brilliant show of color in many parts of the United States. From bright yellows to vibrant reds, the leaves transform, showing their rich and vibrant hues. From the Northeast United States, to the Southeast and Midwest United States, the foliage season begins in early September in the northern regions and ends in southern locations in late October or early November. Every year, people flock to these areas to take in the fall foliage, to catch a glimpse of natures splendor.
