The Northeast

Here are the nine RV vacations that Jeremy and Stephanie highlight in their section on the Northeast.

  1. Acadia National Park
  2. White Mountains, New Hampshire
  3. Vermont Fall Foliage
  4. Cape Cod, Massachusetts
  5. Lake George and the Adirondacks
  6. Niagara Falls
  7. New York City
  8. Pennsylvania Dutch Country
  9. Washington, D.C.

Jeremy and Stephanie hail from the Northeast so this is their home stomping grounds and the part of the country that they have explored the most. They both pick Acadia National Park as their favorite RV destination in the Northeast because of its stunning mountains at the edge of the sea. They also both love all of the RV Vacations in New England, which is one of their favorite places to visit in the summer when the days are warm and nights are cool.

The South

Here are the eleven RV vacations that Jeremy and Stephanie feature from the South.

  1. Civil War Battlefield Tour
  2. Shenandoah National Park
  3. Kentucky Bourbon Trail
  4. Mammoth Cave National Park
  5. Memphis and Graceland
  6. Great Smoky Mountains National Park
  7. Cape Hatteras National Seashore
  8. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
  9. New Orleans
  10. Walt Disney World
  11. Florida Keys

As Northeasterners Jeremy and Stephanie love to escape their home state of New Jersey in the spring and head south for warmer weather and campgrounds that have their pools open and ready to go. Myrtle Beach is their go-to spot for spring break–but they both love camping at Disney’s Fort Wilderness and on either side of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Midwest

Here are the three epic RV Vacations that Jeremy and Stephanie feature from the Midwest.

  1. Hocking Hills, Ohio
  2. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore
  3. Mount Rushmore and the Badlands

Two of Jeremy and Stephanie’s favorite RV Vacations of all time are in this chapter. Their trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore was an all-time favorite and so was their two-week trip to South Dakota to see the Badlands, Custer State Park, and Mount Rushmore. If you are looking for more great campground recommendations from the Midwest–don’t despair–just check out their bestselling book Where Should We Camp Next? A 50 State Guide to Amazing Campgrounds and other Unique Outdoor Accomodations for tons of other recommendations.

The Southwest

Here are the four epic vacations that Jeremy and Stephanie feature from the Southwest.

  1. Route 66: Tulsa to Oklahoma City
  2. Austin and San Antonia, Texas
  3. Tucson, Arizona
  4. Grand Canyon, Arizona

Jeremy and Stephanie both love the Southwest and would certainly like to spend more time there on future RV Vacations. Snowbirding in this part of the country is also an option that is often discussed. Jeremy would rather winter in Arizona than Florida. But with three kids still in school, this conversation is far from urgent. Jeremy and Stephanie both also love Texas and had an amazing time visiting Wine Country–and Austin and San Antonio.

The West

Here are the 13 epic RV Vacations that Jeremy and Stephanie feature from the American West.

  1. Rocky Mountain National Park
  2. Arches National Park
  3. Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks
  4. Las Vegas
  5. San Diego
  6. Napa Valley and San Francisco
  7. California Gold Rush Tour
  8. Yosemite National Park
  9. Portland, Oregon
  10. Coastal Washington Lighthouse Tour
  11. Olympic National Park
  12. Glacier National Park
  13. Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks

When it comes to RV Vacations is the West better than the rest? Yes–Jeremy and Stephanie think it is. That’s why they packed this chapter with so many great options. Jeremy’s all-time favorite National Park is Olympic–Stephanie would go with either Acadia or Glacier. Their three sons, Max, Theo, and Wes would probably all pick Yellowstone.
