I live full time in an RV so I travel all the time. For those who are summer RVers it’s soon time to hit the road. There are numerous adventures and exciting places to head towards. On the open road, you can go wherever you want and go as fast or as slow as you like. The fun about full-timing is that I can take time traveling around the country. Spending the night anywhere that looks interesting and having the freedom to go and see everything is what every RVer lives for. AS many destinations as there are for the intrepid RVer, there are a few well-kept secrets that need to be on your list for 2018.
The historical area of Colonial Williamsburg stretches over 301 acres and includes 88 original 18thcentury structures, representing a true trip through history. Hundreds of the houses, shops and public outbuildings have all been reconstructed on the original foundations, keeping the history alive. Some of the buildings are public and others are private residences or for administrative offices, but either way, there is plenty to see. You can step right from your into history as you walk the paths and streets of former Presidents. There is a designated RV park for travelers which offer a lending library, park, laundry facilities, game room and a fenced dog run for the family pet. Staying here also gives you access to the nearby Jamestown, Yorktown and Busch Gardens.
Blue Ridge Parkway
The scenery and wildlife of Blue Ridge Parkway make it one of the most sought-after destinations for RVers. This stretch of road winds for 500 miles along the Blue Ridge chain of the Appalachian Mountains. There are several stops along the way perfect for RVs, but be sure to check ahead as not all of them offer water and electrical hookups. Once there, you can enjoy any number of hiking trails, museums, and visitor’s centers. The Parkway is divided into five distinct regions, each offering their own attractions. The summer season is always crowded and winters can get cold, so the best time to visit is spring and autumn. The weather will be nice and you can avoid many of the summer crowds.
Arches National Park
Arches National Park preserves over 2000 natural sandstone arches including the famous Delicate Arch and some other unusual and unique rock formations. Thousands of years of geological history are revealed here all thanks to the forces of nature. The landscape created consists of contrasting colors, unique landforms, and multiple textures, unlike any other destination in the world. RV parking and setup is offered at several locations as this region is friendly for RVers and campers alike. Campgrounds facilitate campsites, campers, and motorhomes, so everyone is welcome year round.
