Day Trips Close to Home for the RV Lifestyle

“Oh summer, are you really coming to an end so soon? I feel like we hardly got to spend any time together. There just wasn’t enough road trips for me to get my fill.” Are you one of the many feeling like this? Its true summer is nearing an end, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have time for a last minute road trip! Don’t give up on summer yet, we’ve got some great ideas for day trips close to home that will fit the RV Lifestyle!

If you’re in San Francisco you can head on over to Lava Beds National Monument. Its about 375 miles. You can explore “Captain Jack’s Stronghold” by following one of 12 hiking trails that cross the high desert at Lava Beds National Monument. As you descend a ladder into the caves, the temperature drops, the moist air fills your lungs, and a new world unfolds before you...

If you’re in Los Angeles you can take the quick 31 mile drive over to to Palos Verdes Peninsula and once there, you can visit Abalone Cove Shoreline Park. The Park features two beaches (Abalone Cove and Sacred Cove), tidepools, bluff top viewing areas and trails crisscrossing the area. The park contains a State Ecological Preserve. Starfish and Sea Urchins are some of the animals you may find in the tide pools at low tide, so be sure to bring your camera!

Moving on up the coast to Seattle, you could take a trip to Whidbey Island, Washington -just 34 miles. As you drive over the Whidbey Scenic Isle Way you become mesmerized by the beauty. You’re so captivated by the scenic view that you don’t even realize you’ve come to almost a complete stop in the middle of the bridge and according to Jack Penland, “You’ll find that its easy to get to Whidbey Island, but difficult to leave.”  That statement couldn’t be more true. Once you see all that this amazing island has to offer, you most certainly will not want to leave.

There you have it, a few close to home adventures to squeeze in before summer bids us adieu. Be sure to take lots of pictures to you can submit them with your stories about how you RV! We look forward to hearing about your adventures!
