RV Trips To Take In The Spring
Believe it or not, March and April are two of our favorite months to hit the road for an RV adventure vacation. Springtime RV travel means lighter crowds, gorgeous weather, and spectacular scenery. And all without breaking the bank. Each April, the National Park Service waives park entry fees on the first day of National Park Week. Parks also offer special programming and events – perfect for first-timers, or individuals and families who have seen the sites and want something a little new and different.
The desert parks are our go-to destinations for spring RV adventures. Park your home on wheels at the grand-daddy of National Parks, the Grand Canyon. The popular South Rim is less congested in spring and just as awe-inspiring. Drop below the rim either by foot or mule for a different view and some of the best hiking in the country.
Explore the curious stone hoodoos of Utah’s Bryce Canyon, which are often still snow-capped in spring. In Zion, the winter melt gives way to unexpected lush forests and magnificent waterfalls. Springtime in Zion means Cottonwood trees are in full bloom and the park’s famous hanging gardens are vivid with spring green ferns and wildflowers.
It may be spring break for the kids, but they can keep learning through special ranger programs museums, and visitor centers at all of the national parks. Our Adventure Kit will explain all of the little details.
Sedona, Arizona, with its dramatic sunsets and red rocks, is just a short drive south of the Grand Canyon, where average high temperatures in spring are in the low 80s.
When you choose the Mighty 5, try your luck in Las Vegas, when the crowds are much lighter, and escape the strip for a day at nearby Red Rock Canyon.
A California coast trip in spring offers the Bay Area Brew festival, Cherry Blossoms in Japantown, the spectacular flora of Big Sur, and the Ventura County Spring Fair.
Daylight Savings Time means an extra hour to explore the city, enjoy a camp fire, hike, bike, or catch a glimpse of the most magical perk of springtime in our national parks: Newborn wildlife.
Nothing beats the winter blues like planning for your springtime RV adventure!
