ONE RV ADVENTURE TO HAVE WITH YOUR KIDS IN EVERY STATE BEFORE THEY GROW UP

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!

WHY EVERYONE SHOULD GO RVING IN THE FALL

Many RVers will tell you that fall is their favorite time of the year to go RVing. Much of the country transforms into a spectacle of color and beauty during this time of year, but that’s just part of it. Here’s just a few of the reasons why we think everyone should schedule a fall RV trip before they winterize or, if they’re snowbirds, head south for the winter.

 

 

The Colors

Fall foliage is nature’s way of making us smile. With tracking sites on the Internet, we’re able to know the exact days the foliage will be peaking so it’s easy to make camping plans for the right dates at the right spots. It’s incredible how much the foliage can change in just a few weeks. If you’re a full-timer or have flexibility with your time, you might want to consider heading to a scenic area while it’s still a little green and stay a few weeks to watch this incredible event unfold.

HEADING WEST: EXPLORING THE BADLANDS AND BLACK HILLS OF SOUTH DAKOTA

Eager to get out west, we left Wisconsin with rugged landscapes and mountains on our minds.

 

 

But there was no way we could pass through Minnesota without stopping to visit our dear friends, the O’dells. We met the O’dells almost four years ago while on a walk in a campground outside of Savannah, GA. We connected instantly, and since then we’ve met up numerous times at their house and in Colorado.

SMILES AND SETBACKS IN MINNESOTA AND NORTH DAKOTA

Untitled

If the weather wasn’t cooperating in Minneapolis, it more than made up for itself as we traveled north. Our destination was to stop north of Brainerd, MN for a few days to meet up with some wonderful friends we met while RVing in Georgia a few years ago.
