Destination RV'ing. What's been your favorites?


As an armchair RV'er so far, I think of destination travel.  A few examples, the Bourbon Whiskey trail in Kentucky, the vineyards of Napa, the American Indian reservations of the Southwest, the zoos and museums of major cities.  Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Yosemite.  A place where you might spend a couple of weeks or a month in one location just playing tourist.

What has been your favorite?

We spend 2-4 weeks every year in. Sonoma County 🍷 tasting. Napa is over priced, snotty, and not as much fun.

We have enjoyed exploring Asheville NC; Knoxville TN; Glacier NP; Columbia River Gorge; Acadia NP Maine; Prince Edward Island; Yukon, Granby CO; Steamboat Springs CO; Durango CO; Zion NP UT; Bryce NP UT;UP on Michigan; and the list goes on. I guess we just like to go exploring. Lots to see and do a these locations including hiking, biking, kayaking, museums, and local restaurants and lore.

After 4 years of wandering about our top pick would have to be the "Big 5" National Parks in Southern Utah.  Shock & Awe would be my best description.  

This Spring we did the 2 million acre Dixie National Forest that runs between Zion, Bryce, and Capitol Reef.  It is an amazing area that could easily compete with almost any National Park.  We still have so much to see.   America the beautiful, indeed.

I think Alaska has been our best stop…but really we have found very, very few places that we didn't have a good time, see cool stuff, and would go back to again.

We're in southern UT now…and Bryce/Zion/Antelope Canyon/Grand Canyon have been great…but as I said even places where we thought we would just veg out for a few days have turned out to be nice…Fulton MO, Casey IL for instance both had great stuff to see that we had no idea was there.

The Bourbon Trail was great…as was the UP of Michigan and just about every other place we've been in the past 5 years.

I'll have to agree with Neil and Connie. We've found a few RV parks we wouldn't use again, but no place in the country we haven't enjoyed and found something worthwhile. We've also found that thinking there is someplace we have to revisit regularly (i.e. yearly) takes up time we could be exploring someplace new. The only regular repeats are the places where our mothers and grandkids live.

Alaska, every time.  We had a great adventure going to Inuvik in the Canadian Northwest Territories. (Once is enough - challenging trip.) Have done the Canadian Maritimes including taking the RV on the big ferry to Newfoundland.  That's a great trip, highly recommended.  Done almost all the national parks and the Pacific northwest. We've filled in the US map - visited in the RV - to every state in the US.  But hands down, Alaska.  I'd go again in a heartbeat.  You also get the beautiful northwest country of Canada as a bonus during the journey.

I can't help much here as the wife and I spend longer periods of time in one place, mostly so that we can have plenty of time to really explore an area.  For instance, after retiring, we moved to the Colorado Springs area and was there for about 20 months.  Now, we are in SW Oregon near Grants Pass.  We've not been able to really explore a lot because of the "job" we have, but we also don't have any lot rent or utilities to pay.  All of that is paid by our "employer."

So far here in Oregon, we've explored some of the Redwoods in Northern California, kayaked the Smith River east of Crescent City, CA (first time ever for kayaking for this 70/64 year old couple), toured and photographed along the Oregon coast from Brookings up to Lincoln City, OR, and of course, a day trip to Crater Lake.  Youngest son is scheduled to take vacation for 2 weeks out here in November, so I need to begin planning where we will go.  Thinking of along the northern coastline of Oregon and the Columbia River area, and perhaps maybe even a trip down south with plans of visiting Golden Gate Park in San Francisco for a day.

Favorites so far are hard to nail down.  I'd just have to say I'm blessed to be able to say that there are so many places in the west that we have thoroughly enjoyed.

As for the future, perhaps in about 1 1/2 years, southern Utah.  I'd really like to find a year round job with the Utah state park system where utilities again would be paid.  But, with Utah, that would have to include 50 amp electric.  I'm not so much liking hot weather anymore.

Yosemite Valley- best experience was one night during a full moon. The granite walls and waterfalls lit by the moon seemed like they were from another world
Grand Canyon- watching the sun come up from sunrise point. A trip to the canyon on the train with a three night stay.
Round Trip from LA to Missouri- stopping at most of the places of interest along the way

We've been so many beautiful places but I have to say that the Black Hills of South Dakota was a surprise. Can't believe how much I enjoyed our time there.
