Whether you’re able to homeschool the kids, work remotely or simply looking for a brand new adventure with friends or family, our team is excited to showcase to you how you can make the most of your next RV trip!
How To Get Started
Before we get too excited about these upcoming destinations, we need to iron out some key logistics - the first and most important being, ‘Where do you get your RV from?’. Whether you’re a current owner, or looking for a new ride, our team recommends you check out the fantastic fleet at RVshare. With over 100,000 listings across the U.S. and in all 50 states, this is the perfect platform to find a RV that fits your needs, no matter your location, destination or number of explorers. Or, if you already have an RV, why not plug into the platform and earn a second income? A win-win!
Why Take An RV Vacation?
Sometimes our team gets asked why you should take an RV over a more traditional holiday, especially in the context of exploring the outdoors. The answer is simple. It’s a far more authentic way to take in your natural surroundings, it's more cost effective and most importantly you have the complete freedom to explore as you and your friends/family wish. In light of Covid-19 it’s also a far more responsible way to travel, both for yourself and your wider community. So what are you waiting for?!
Where To Go
As we all know, there is no shortage of magical state and national parks to visit across the country, so to narrow it down to these top picks is a challenge in itself. Nonetheless, you can trust that all of these destinations have been hand selected with RVshare’s full range of listings in mind and where fall foliage is most striking at this beautiful time of year
1) Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
The breathtaking orange of Bryce Canyon’s ‘hoodoos garden’ puts on a panoramic view like no other in fall and is a must do for any current (and future) RV lover. October, November and December are the best months to explore this paradise with smaller crowds and cooler weather. The deep reds and eye catching golds of the quaking aspen and majestic oak could only be described as some of the most special fall destinations in the American West. With so many magical spots, there is no shortage of options for pictures, lunch breaks and night stopovers in your RV. While here, we also recommend exploring around wider Utah, to make the most of this sometimes underrated state.
2) Green Mountain National Park, Vermont
Vermont’s Green Mountain National Park could only be described as being a mecca for any serious leaf lovers, while exploring the Eastern U.S. Pick up your RVshare in Vermont (or any neighboring state) and get ready to drive a number of highways and byways that wind through mountains and valleys, backdropped by glorious hues of violet-red pin cherry and yellow alder trees, as well as blazing orange maple trees. On this trip you could easily spend up to a week, making the most of your favourite RV and its top quality facilities. Our Exploring Our Globe team recommends driving the Green Mountain Byway from Waterbruy to Stowe, as this will enable you to see a mixture of peaceful meadows, charming villages, farms and conclude with the state’s highest colourful peak, Mount Mansfield. From here you can find the perfect place to park your RV for the night, take in the breathtaking night sky and smile.
3) Oak Creek Canyon (Near Sedona), Arizona
The bright yellows and rich oranges of fall are a sight to behold at Oak Creek Canyon. A well-known destination, often visited en route to Grand Canyon National Park, is the perfect place to use RVshare and check out this fantastic river gorge. Occasionally called, the Grand Canyon’s cousin, Oak Creek Canyon is filled with beautiful sycamore and oak trees. If you’re wanting to go for a hike (strongly recommended), our team suggests checking out West Fork Oak Creek trail, as it is relatively unknown by non-locals but will blow your mind. As you explore this magical destination, make sure you’re ready for some of the best fall colors in the country. The collection below will give you a little taste of what's to come for this RV adventure.
4) Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
Last but not least (and arguably our favorite of all), Rocky Mountain National Park can only be described as the definition of a bucket-list RV destination. When exploring this national treasure, we recommend getting your RVshare for over a week and truly take your time to soak in the stunning landscapes that surround you (both within the park and the wider area). The more you relax and actually admire the beauty with the people accompanying you, the more you’ll enjoy this remarkable RV experience - we promise! Here you’ll find, mountains blanketed with incredible hues of golden bronze and dazzling yellow. Prepare yourself for the high altitude though, as much of the park sits 10,000 feet above sea level. Once settled in, not only will you observe incredible colors, but also have the privilege of witnessing jagged mountain peaks soaring into bright blue skies. A must stop in the area is Maroon Bells - here you’ll see the beautiful scenery reflected into Maroon Lake.
We hope you can see just how magical these 4 adventures would be and how the team at RVshare can help make these bucket-list destinations come true.
Stay tuned for the next edition of Exploring Our Globe’s favourite National and State Parks across this beautiful country!
