Taking the Scenic Route: RVing Adventures for the Whole Family
Spring has finally sprung, and that means it’s time to take the RV out of hibernation. RVs are an ideal way to see the country, “from the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters.” Here are some family-friendly destinations perfect to explore by RV:
National and State Parks
Did you know that our national parks are home to 29,000 campsites and our state parks boast more than 221,000 campsites spread across all 50 states? Whether you want to stay close to home for a quick weekend getaway or take a more leisurely road trip across the country, the possibilities are endless.
National Scenic Byways
If you want to get off the beaten path, take a ride along one of over 150 scenic byways recognized by the National Scenic Byways Program. It’s a great way to learn about U.S. history while admiring mile upon mile of breathtaking scenery along the way. On the East Coast, retrace the historic trail led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the Selma to Montgomery March Byway. Or, go back in time to the early settler days and explore the pastoral valleys and temperate rainforests pioneers encountered on the last leg of the Oregon Trail on the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway.

RV Parks and Campgrounds
Whether you’re looking for adventure or some R&R, RV parks and resorts offer something for everyone. Some of today’s campgrounds offer so many activities and amenities (e.g., miniature golf, outdoor movie theaters, game rooms) that there’s no need to go offsite for entertainment. Have you ever heard of glamping? You’ll find amenity-laden RV parks that offer salon and spa services, wine rooms and cappuccino bars. Of course, if you prefer to unplug and get back to the basics, there’s a campsite for that too!
