Looking for a family adventure vacation that will help your children develop a lifelong appreciation for the great outdoors? An RV vacation is adventurous, educational, and flexible. You will be surprised how quickly your children fall in love with the outdoors. And, thanks to the RV, you’ll never wait in line for a snack or the bathroom like other visitors.
Old folks and rednecks seem to get all the attention when it comes to RVs, but traveling by RV seems like it was really made for families with kids. Digging for dinosaur bones. Riding on steam trains. Wading in mountain streams. Peering into huge canyons. Driving a Jeep along a rocky road. Building campfires and roasting marshmallows. Even jaded teenagers will be telling their friends about their cool summer vacation. Seriously.
The true inspiration for Tracks & Trails? It was seeing so many road-weary people during our own travels, stumbling into a campground at the end of yet another 10-hour day behind the wheel. It shouldn’t be that way! Why hurry? This is your vacation! Our itineraries set the right pace then show you how to make the most of every day.
Thinking of driving cross-country? Don’t! Not unless you have several weeks to spend. Start your road trip as close to the action as possible. Yes, airline tickets are expensive, but you’ll avoid additional fuel costs and excess mileage charges, and you’ll double the amount of real vacationing in your vacation. Too many people compromise their trips out West by using up their time and energy before they get here. We don’t want you to make that mistake.
When you’re traveling in an RV, an average of 150 miles per day (or less) is plenty. Out here, you don’t have to go any further to discover another breathtaking place worth staying for a couple of days. If you only have a week, it’s better to really get to know the area around Zion National Park than it is to start in Denver, roar over the Rocky Mountains, skim over Mesa Verde, fly through southern Utah, stick your head over the rim at the Grand Canyon, and whiz across Hoover Dam before collapsing in Las Vegas. Really. It is.
