The Ocean View

If you’re getting sick of seeing the same few beaches every summer, go to the Grand Strand in South Carolina. This location spans 60 miles of the coast, and offers different types of attractions and entertainment to keep you and your friends or family happy.

If you’re the active type, this area has over 100 golf courses as well as water activities such as boating and fishing. Alternatively if you’re more interested in seeing historical sites you will have endless options.

Atlantic Beach is a small town which holds many cultural events and festivals throughout the year. Fort Sumter is another notable historical landmark, as well as several plantations with guided tours.

The National Park

Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon are always the first national parks to jump to mind, but there are countless other parks which are well deserving of the same credit.

Make sure that Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is on your radar, because it is a spot you will not want to miss. It is located in northern Indiana and spans across 16 miles of the shore of Lake Michigan.

Here you’ll find small historical centers, water activities, hiking for all skill levels, as well as wildlife attractions.

The Big City

Cities aren’t always the best, friendliest places for RV-ers, but there are some urban areas that are more welcoming and easier to navigate.

Because staying the night in a parking lot is a lot less expensive than constantly paying park fees, you’ll want to visit a city that has no ordinance prohibiting overnight parking or larger vehicles.

RV-friendly Portland Oregon

Portland, Oregon is one of the better city spots for RV-ers. The entire state of Oregon is a part of the RV-friendly sign initiative, which allows drivers to identify gas stops, restaurants, and lodging that allow RV parking. You can also freely park on the streets and in parking lots in Portland, which will allow you to more easily enjoy the city on a budget.

The Winter Getaway

Winter is notorious for poor driving conditions. Snow and sleet make the ground slick, and fog and rain makes for poor visibility. The obvious choice is the California coast, but there are better options than fog and the cold ocean.

Whether you want to get away from the weather for a few days or all winter, southern Arizona won’t disappoint. In mid-December you will be playing in 60 to 70 degree sunshine. Cactus Gardens RV resort boasts 300 days of sunshine, over 400 sites, and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities to keep you occupied.
