Alabama

Go to Space Camp. Rocket scientist Dr. Wernher von Braun wanted a place to inspire kids about space travel, and the result was Space Camp, where kids participate in simulated missions, experience what gravity feels like on the moon, and spin themselves silly on the multi-axis trainer.

 

Alaska

Go dogsledding. Whether you want to see the northern lights, explore Denali National Park or visit a glacier, get there by dogsled. The cold air in your face as you glide across the snow…there’s nothing else like it. Mush!

 

Arizona

Camp out in the Grand Canyon. But don’t stare at it for five minutes and then wonder, “Now what?” There are plenty of wonders waiting to be discovered inside the canyon. Climb down and explore, then spend the night under the stars at Mather Campground.

 

Arkansas

Dig for diamonds. Visit Crater of Diamonds State Park to find your own gemstones. It’s the only diamond-producing site in the world that is open to the public, so start digging!

After our time in Indiana, we decided we couldn’t head north without first turning around to give Kentucky some love.

RV ADVENTURES IN SOUTHERN INDIANA

 

Not wanting to stray too far from family because of my grandpa’s illness, we decided we would explore southern Indiana. Head south in Indiana and it won’t be long until the flat, open fields give way to rolling hills and lush green forests. It was in one of these forests we found a campground, Paynetown State Recreation Area, along the shores of Lake Monroe. We settled into a large shaded site and set out to explore the campground.

FAMILY, FUN, AND EMBRACING THE SMALL MOMENTS IN INDIANA

 

Nearly a year has passed since we put down our jacks in the Midwest where I grew up. Here in Indiana, the smell of fresh cut grass reminded me that winter was soon to be a distant memory and summer was just around the corner.

MAKING MEMORIES IN MADISON AND MINNEAPOLIS

RVing has changed our “goodbyes” into “see ya laters.” After saying our “see ya laters” to our family in Indiana we hit the road and headed north. Our destination was Madison, Wisconsin.

A few rest stops later and an overnight in a Walmart parking lot, we set up camp at Lake Farm Campground just outside Madison, Wisconsin.
