RV Camping Trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame

Millions of Americans share two great loves, RV camping and professional football. One way to indulge those dual passions is by RV tailgating at pro football games. Another is to take an RV road trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Before we expand upon the joys of a place solely dedicated to professional football, let’s talk about the best way to get to Canton, Ohio by RV. Canton is easily accessible via major highways. It’s located about an hour due south of Cleveland on I-77. It’s also six hours east of the greater Chicago area and two hours west of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Because you travel by RV to enjoy the sights and sounds of America, you’ll be interested to know that the lush Cuyahoga Valley National Park begins just twenty miles north of Canton in Akron, Ohio. If you’d like, you can plan a little extra time on your trip to take the historic railway tour through the Valley.

Now, onto what’s really bringing you to Canton, the Pro Football Hall of Fame. This beloved epicenter of US professional football holds events year-round as well as hosting permanent exhibits and activities that showcase Hall of Fame honorees.

Of special interest to hardcore pro football fans is the weeklong Enshrinement Festival in August. This extravaganza includes such events as a balloon launch, a barbeque “burnoff”, a huge parade, and a drum corps competition, in addition to the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Game and the Enshrinement Ceremony for the year’s Hall of Fame inductees.

Depending on when you decide to attend, there may be autograph sessions scheduled with featured Hall of Famers. You’ll always find exhibits featuring such artifacts sacred to football fans as Tom Brady’s Patriots draft card and the football commemorating Len Dawson as MVP in Super Bowl IV. There are literally so many videos, artifacts and educational materials related to pro football on display at the Hall of Fame that football fans will think they’ve gone to Heaven.

As an added bonus, a specially-priced Hall Pass available from either venue gives you access not only to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, but to the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame in nearby Cleveland, as well.

There’s really no excuse for a rabid fan of professional football not to visit the Hall of Fame at least once. Spending time there gives you the chance to pay homage to the best players in the sport. Getting there by RV makes the trip enjoyable and affordable. To make things even easier, there are scenic and well-equipped RV campgrounds just a short trip from the Hall of Fame. CampingUSA.com has a complete list of campgrounds in the Canton/Akron area.

It’s time to get into the game for this year’s RV road trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. You’ll score a touchdown by taking your favorite football fans along, and the memories you’ll come home with will be ones for the record books.
