TOP 5 REASONS TO RV THROUGH NEW ENGLAND IN THE FALL

 

The Fall Foliage

Did you expect anything different for number one? Tourists flock from not only all over the country, but from all over the world to see these radiant colors in New England. The foliage is the number one reason for visiting New England in the fall, but “leaf peeping” from the comfort of your RV makes the experience even more special.

The comfort you have of viewing the radiant colors from an RV is unbeatable. While heading down roads that look like they belong in a glamorous magazine or movie, you can easily stop and grab a soda out of your own fridge or pull off to the side of the road and have a spontaneous picnic.

FUN ALONG THE SHORES OF LAKE ERIE

There are very few things in life as fun and exciting as seeing new things. After four years of full time RVing, we’ve started visiting places a second or even third time. Of course, we are always finding new things to do in areas we’ve visited before like going to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls a few weeks ago. However, the past few weeks have been filled with entirely new-to-us places as we’ve been making our way along the Pennsylvania and Ohio coastlines of Lake Erie.

 

 

Our first new-to-us stop was Presque Isle, a peninsula located in Erie, Pennsylvania. It’s name in French means “almost an island.” It became a state park in 1921.

5 NATIONAL PARKS YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE

The National Park Service was established in 1916 and consists of over 400 parks covering more than 80 million acres. In 2014, these parks saw nearly 300,000,000 visitors. National parks are a perfect place to experience nature, learn about our history, pursue favorite pastimes and find your AWAY.

After 3 and half years of full time RVing, we’ve been to nearly a fourth of the parks. We’ve walked the battlefields of Gettysburg and under the giant sequoias in California with many stops in between. While we have enjoyed aspects of each park, there are a few that stand out as places that kids (and adults) will especially love.

Yellowstone National Park

I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I had low expectations for America’s first and most visited national park, Yellowstone National Park. I had heard about the crowds (I’m not a crowd person) and assumed the park was overrated. I was wrong. We all LOVED our time in Yellowstone. Thing 1 and Thing 2 both agreed that it was their second favorite National Park.
