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!

THE WHITE MOUNTAINS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE: A PLAYGROUND FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Many RVers believe vacations fall into two categories: the ones you take with the kids (think Fort Wilderness) and the ones you take without the kids (think Napa Valley). Over the last six years, we learned that the best RV vacations offer the right balance of thrills and relaxation for everyone, and we love discovering destinations that kids, parents, and grandparents can all enjoy equally. The White Mountains of New Hampshire win the blue ribbon in this category.

 

 

Located at the northern end of the Appalachian range, the White Mountains host 48 peaks that rise over 4,000 feet, including Mount Washington, the highest peak in the Northeast. The rugged terrain, glacial formations, and rushing waterfalls have beckoned tourists since the early 1800s. Hundreds of years later the tourism industry is still booming, drawing us in with its promise of world-class hiking and kayaking.
