If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind Indiana experience, get an RV rental in Kokomo, IN. As Indiana’s 13th-largest city, Kokomo is known as the “City of Firsts”. Among other achievements, Kokomo was a pioneer of the United States automobile manufacturing, with Elwood Haynes test-driving his early internal combustion engine auto in 1894.
Have an interest in learning more about the city’s history? Hop into your Cruise America RV rental and tour America’s oldest art glass company, Kokomo Opalescent Glass. A chemist from New York, Charles Henry, launched the company during the natural gas boom of the 1880s. If you prefer exploring local shops and boutiques, check out Kokomo’s Downtown District. Feeling nostalgic? Kokomo Toys & Collectibles’ merchandise varies from rare prototypes to collectors’ items to make things that your children and grandchildren can enjoy.
After touring Kokomo’s Downtown District, hit a “home run” with your family with a visit to Kokomo Municipal Stadium to watch the Kokomo Jackrabbits baseball team. Want to stay active during your visit? Canoe or kayak in the Kokomo Reservoir or down the Wildcat Creek. Or bike, walk or run on the Wildcat Creek Walk of Excellence or Industrial Heritage Trail.
After enjoying some time in Kokomo, it may be time to jump into your Cruise America motorhome and explore other cities in Indiana. Getting an RV in Richmond, IN is just a two-hour drive, which makes it a short and sweet trip. Better yet, Lafayette is not too far either.
In the comfort of an RV rental in Indiana, you can drive up north to Fort Wayne in less than two hours. There is so much to see in Indiana and we will make sure your trip is one to remember with our motorhome.
