Have you ever dreamed of saying, “we’ll be away for the holidays,” but haven’t managed to make that happen? RV travel offers real value for families hoping to hit the road for the holidays.
We’re always looking for ways to help our readers plan the perfect vacations, and this holiday season is no exception. Here are five memorable ways to enjoy the winter holidays even more, thanks to the convenience of RV camping.
Winter RV Camping Getaway #1 – Amelia Island, Florida
An RV trip to the northeast coast of Florida should always include a stop at Amelia Island. This gem shines with historical and architectural charm, thanks to spots like Fernandina Beach, where entire blocks are on the National Register of Historic Places. You’ll also want to tour Fort Clinch, where the battle over ownership has been waged for more than four hundred years. Beautiful winter weather means highs in the sixties and lows in the upper forties; the perfect holiday RV getaway for snowbound families!
Winter RV Camping Getaway #2 – Boulder City, Nevada
There’s an RV camping haven just thirty miles south of Las Vegas that’s a fantastic family-oriented destination. Boulder City, Nevada is not only the gateway to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area, it’s also a winter wonderland of wildlife viewing, outdoor recreation and historical sites. Take the kids to the city’s Hemenway Valley Park to watch the bighorn sheep graze around the playground equipment! By all means visit Lake Mead and Hoover Dam—they’re both unforgettable—and while you’re there, hike the 3.7 mile Railroad Tunnel Trail, carved through solid rock for the railroad to use to build the Dam.
Winter RV Camping Getaway #3 – Port St Lucie, Florida
Love to paddle a scenic river trail one vacation day and play on a white sand beach the next? Port St Lucie is the place for you to get away for the winter holidays. The Indian and St. Lucie Rivers that run through this scenic southeast Florida city offer hiking, paddling and fishing opportunities to die for. You’ll also be within easy reach of Florida’s Treasure Coast, where spectacular beaches await.
Winter RV Camping Getaway #4 – Newport Beach, California
Winter break is the best time of all to hit the beach, and Newport Beach, California is a beach lover’s paradise. Park the RV at one of the many scenic campgrounds in the area and then soak up the sun on beaches like Corona del Mar State Beach and Crystal Cove State Park. Don’t miss the winter grey whale watching excursions and book your campground reservation in time to see the city’s annual five-day Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade.
Winter RV Camping Getaway #5 – Fountain Hills, Arizona
Want to camp where there’s scenic beauty all around, but big city attractions close by? Fountain Hills, Arizona, thirty quick minutes east of Scottsdale, is your perfect winter holiday location. Next door to McDowell Mountain Regional Park’s miles and miles of hiking and biking trails, this desert town will charm your family into coming back year after year. Hit the shops in Scottsdale, explore the attractions of Phoenix and then get out into the Sonoran Desert for hours of outdoor recreation. Have a golfer in the family?
