The weather is lovely and your kids are about to be out of school on break. Why not take this chance to take your RV out on the open road? You can point your RV in about any direction and find something breathtaking after all.

RV trips are some of the most freeing vacations you’ll experience too. On top of seeing famous areas like the Grand Canyon, you’ll be able to explore smaller, lesser-known towns and stay in gorgeous campsites. You may find it hard to decide where to start on your trip.

Don’t worry, we’ve got a few ideas. Here are some amazing RV trips that you should add to (and cross off) your bucket list.

1. Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park is huge. Between the hundreds of lakes, roaring waterfalls, Glacier Point, and soaking in Yosemite Falls, you’ll never run out of things to explore.

There are about ten campsites that allow RVs to be parked on them but there are a few snags. Due to the high volume of people who come in, you’ve only got between April and September to reserve a spot.

These campsites also don’t have sewer or hot water hookups. There are dump stations and water stops available around the camps though.

2. Route 66

Route 66 is famous for appearing in both John Steinbeck’s novel “The Grapes of Wrath” and in an old television show called “Route 66”. Today, it’s been disbanded into different byways but that doesn’t make it any less memorable.

There are many things to see and do as you drive through. You can drop in the Route 66 National Museum or stop into the Cadillac Ranch. When you need a break from driving there are many rest stops along the way that are RV friendly.

3. Denali

The Denali highway isn’t exactly car-friendly because of the tough terrain. With some RV upgrades, your home on wheels can conquer the challenge though and you’ll want to. The scenery down the highway is beautiful.

You’ll find a few campgrounds in the national park there. The Teklanika River campground will be about as deep as you can go with your RV. It doesn’t have any sewage or water hookups but it’s still worth it to go.

You’ll be able to snap some great pictures of unique wildlife and you’ll have a great view of the mountains.

4. Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is a popular spot for a reason. While there, you and your family can go whitewater rafting, rim hiking, and donkey riding. It’s also not too far away from Las Vegas.

When you’re done having fun you can you head over to the South Rim to park your RV at the Trailer Village.

5. The Canadian Rockies

This trip will have you take your RV through the Banff National park to Jasper in Canada. During this RV trip, you’ll get a great view of the Rockies, waterfalls, valleys, and glacial-silt lakes. On this trek, you’ll run into all sorts of wildlife that can’t wait to be a part of your camera roll.

There are RV parks that are located along the trail but you’re better off staying in the national parks. They have RV sites that have electrical, sewage, and water.

As you can imagine these fill up fast though. You’ll need to book well in advance to secure your spot.

6. Oregon Coast

Going along the Oregon Coast is the best way to cram an entire vacation in a small amount of time. You can look at the Puffins on Cannon Beach.

There are almost a dozen lighthouses along the way. You can swing by Fort Stevens to check out the abandoned military facilities. The more adventurous members of your group can go out on dune buggies.

There are plenty of RV-friendly parks where you can stay. You’ll need to book in advance depending on what sights you want to be near though.

7. Albuquerque

You may best know Albuquerque as the filming location for “Breaking Bad”. This isn’t the only show that’s been filmed in this location and given the scenery, it probably won’t be the last.

If you’re going to go, the best time is during the balloon festival. Hundreds of hot air balloons are released above the city. It’s a colorful sight to see and you can park your RV near it to watch it happen first hand.

If you don’t go during the balloon festival there are still plenty of things to see. The weather stays nice so you can always explore the National parks. There are tons of RV parks that you can pick from during your stay too.

8. San Diego

If you’re looking for a place where you can escape the harshness of winter then you should head to San Diego. The temperature stays at around 80 degrees all through the chilly season.

There is a little something for everyone here. Your kids can go to Sea World or Legoland and you can go surfing and fishing.

If you need a break from the great outdoors then you can go shopping. There are a lot of great places to shop in the area. Like with Albuquerque, there are a lot of RV parks for you to stay at so you can sort of take your pick.
