You’ve always put your relationships with your family first. You’ve committed to a family road trip and bought an RV so that you can enjoy the creature comforts of home while reconnecting with nature. But where do you go? There are so many memorable road trips to take that it can seem overwhelming at times. But before you throw a dart at the U.S. map or flip a coin to decide on your destination, consider the following locations for your next RV trip:
There’s a reason that Yellowstone National Park has become an iconic name that so many people are familiar with. Its twelve campgrounds and 2,000 campsites offer numerous places to reconnect with your family and appreciate the natural beauty of our land. From majestic forests to flowing rivers, you can be surrounded by natural beauty and explore unfamiliar territory while staying in the relative comfort of your RV. Be sure to make a reservation, as slots for large vehicles fill up quickly, and try to avoid peak season in July and August if possible.
If your family appreciates sweeping geologic formations and hunting for fossils, Badlands National Park in South Dakota is the place for you. Due to glacial movements during the ice age, much of the area was once under water. As a result, its geologic formations are impressive and distinctive thanks to sedimentary rocks, and numerous fossils have been found in the area. Its 244,000 acres are also home to a wide array of animals such as bighorn sheep and buffalo.
While there are many great RV parks or campgrounds, some people prefer to keep driving, rather than park. Exploring New Mexico is a great option for on-the-go RV vacationers. You can start in Santa Fe and explore its many shops, restaurants and art galleries. The city is teeming with culture and ready to be explored. About an hour drive away is Taos, the oldest continual Native American settlement in the U.S. The small community has many shops as well as preserved pueblos and dwellings to explore. Check your road map and find many other wonderful stops in New Mexico.
Zion River Resort
Maybe you’d like an extended stay somewhere in your RV so you can appreciate the changing seasons. The Zion River Resort in Utah has grills, free Wi-Fi and more for visitors. In addition to being only 13 miles from Zion River National Park, you can use this campground resort as a base to visit the northern edge of the Grand Canyon. Reserve a spot early to be sure your stay is guaranteed, especially if traveling in several vehicles with friends. Costs vary depending on the size of your vehicle.
Your RV will soon become your home away from home, allowing you and your family to live comfortably while on the road. Discover some of the wonderful sights the country has to offer, and enjoy the journey.
