One of the most fun aspects of planning for an RV trip is thinking about all of the things that you’re going to do.
You see, the road trip itself is half of the experience. The other half of the experience is having fun visiting cool areas and doing fun activities. You’ll want to decide what these activities are before you even rent your RV in the first place.
Here are some ideas on what to do in the outdoors on your next RV trip:
Visit Scenic Areas or Natural Landmarks En Route To Your Destinatio
Do your research and find out if there are any scenic areas or landmarks en route to your destination. Any cool places you haven’t seen before will certainly be worth checking out.
And remember, it’s not like you can only do outdoor activities such as hiking once you arrive at your destination. If there are any hiking trails you want to visit en route to your destination, you can check those out too.
Explore A City
Yes, usually RV road trips are associated with camping. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t explore a major city that’s en route to your destination.
This is one reason why bringing a normal-sized car in addition to your RV may be a wise idea, especially if you plan on driving anywhere where an RV will not be practical
Go Mountain Biking
When you’re writing down your RV checklist before you leave, something that you will probably want to bring are your bikes. Biking is a fast paced and exhilarating activity and also provides you with the opportunity to view some awe inspiring natural landscapes if you go to the right areas (make sure your phone is charged so you can take pictures).
Another outdoor option besides biking will be to go kayaking (or rafting or canoeing). Even if you don’t have kayaks yourself, you can research RV parks ahead of time that do have them. If you don’t have any experience with kayaking either, hiring a guide will be a wise idea.
Have Backup Activities
It’s always a smart idea to have backup games or activities planned as well in the event that you’re not able to do another planned activity on a particular day (such as if it’s raining outside).
Games that you can do at the campground (such as bocce ball), board games or card games, relaxing and reading books, or even movies are all examples of backup activities that you can do when you aren’t able to do what you may have had planned.
Having Fun On Your RV Trip
Driving your RV on the road is only part of the experience. The other part is the actual activities that you’ll be doing on that trip, and that’s what really is going to make your trip truly memorable.
