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!

MAKING MEMORIES AND MUSIC IN NORTH DAKOTA

This week began among the rolling hills, quiet lakes, and colorful flowers of the International Peace Garden in Dunseith, North Dakota. The International Peace Garden has its own campground and we found a private spot nestled in some white birch trees. After a few small set backs last week, it was a perfect place to find our AWAY.

How we ended up at the International Peace Garden is a cool story. We were trying to decide what route to take through North Dakota. In the fall of 2012, we had taken I-94 and stayed a few days at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and were keen on experiencing the park in the summer. However a Go RVing Facebook fan suggested we see the International Peace Gardens. I was reading reviews about the gardens on Yelp and someone mentioned that the International Peace Garden was also the home of the International Music Camp.
