So many travelers dream of taking a trip to faraway, exotic places. If you look at the Internet, it appears as though there are no unpopulated areas here in the U.S. where you can find solitude and tranquility. However, anyone who is part of the RV lifestyle knows different!
No matter where you live in our United States of America, you most likely won’t have to travel very far to explore some of nature’s finest work, breathtaking landscapes, vibrant cities, winding beaches and iconic landmarks.
Here are just a few incredible places to travel in an RV:
Red Rock Country in Arizona
This is a road trip that will keep you gazing in wonder. The scenic byway begins in Sedona, where some of the natural formations have been named after just what they look like. For instance, there’s Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock, Ship Rock, and many more. In fact, several of these goliath formations have been featured in movies.
Secret Mountain Wilderness is one of the ten designated wilderness areas in Coconino Forest. While in the Red Rock area you can enjoy jeep tours, horseback riding, fishing, swimming, sightseeing, nature viewing and, of course, RV camping.
Death Valley in California
Death Valley is one of the hottest places on this planet. This is where you’ll find the lowest elevation, the driest climate and the hottest temperatures in the U.S. Temperatures have been recorded to soar up to 134.06 degrees during the heat of the summer. As far as camping goes, there are over 3,000,000 acres of wilderness, along with 700 miles of backcountry dirt roads that are open for camping in this amazing national park. Star watchers love it in Death Valley, as it provides for some of the best star gazing and meteor spotting on the planet. There is no light pollution to block out heaven’s light show.
Myrtle Beach in South Carolina
Here you can find amazing beaches; sixty miles of them, to be exact. This sandy paradise, mixed with the party atmosphere and the delectable eateries, are just a few good reasons to maneuver your RV to this hotspot. There’s also a great nightlife, with popular hangouts like Malibu’s Surf Bar, Senior Frogs and Club Boca. Another thing this area is famous for are the perfect bodysurfing conditions. For a fun adventure with a carnival feel to it, visit the boardwalk and the promenade.
Crater Lake in Oregon
If lakes were given a rating from 1 to 10 on the beauty scale, this lake would get an 11! It is the deepest lake in the nation, with the bottom looming 1,949 feet beneath the surface. The water is incredibly blue because of the purity of the water. Here you can take boat tours, go swimming, fishing, listen to the ranger presentations, take part in the evening programs, and camp (of course). There are old-growth forests to explore, mountains to climb for spectacular views of the lake, and wildflower meadows to gaze upon. It has been dubbed as one of the best RV camping spots in the country.
Leavenworth in Washington
You’ll think you’ve stepped in a true Bavarian village when you visit Leavenworth. Take a stroll through this quaint menagerie of Bavarian shops and German eateries. This tiny town may be considered eye candy to some, but the little village is geared toward travelers and outdoor enthusiasts with the richest soil for harvesting an amazing variety of delicious, sweet apples, peaches, cherries, plums and pears. In the winter you’ll find skiing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, ski jumping, snowshoeing, snowcat skiing and even dog sledding. It’s a winter wonderland during the cold season. If you’re a wine connoisseur, you’ll appreciate going to a wine tasting, as the wine from Leavenworth Valley is quickly becoming one of the hottest up-and-coming wine hotbeds in the Northwest. If you’re looking for more physical activity, run along the Skyline Lake Trail, which is a 3.3-mile loop near the town, or the Colchuck Lake Trail, an 8-mile out and back trail.
