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!

CAMPING WITH THE FAMILY – THE WHOLE FAMILY

I am incredibly lucky to be close to my siblings, as well as my parents. It’s a blessing that not everyone has, and I love the time we can all spend together.
As a family we try to plan one big getaway each year that everyone can attend. And, to keep it affordable, we go camping.
This year our outing was to the KOA in Gretna, Nebraska, just west of Omaha. I almost feel like the poster child for KOA here on The Scenic Route… What can I say, these campgrounds just work for us – especially when traveling with family members who don’t camp. We know that the camping cabins, pool, and other activities will help our non-RVing relatives enjoy the getaway and not feel like they are ‘roughing it.’ Another great bonus of camping is that our dogs are welcome to join us, making this truly a vacation for the entire family.
