Valley of Fire in an RV

Wednesday, December 7th, 2016

Valley of FIre As the oldest and largest state park in the US, and one that is open all year, it’s a great getaway. Only 6 miles from Lake Mead and 55 miles northeast of Las Vegas, the park showcases ancient trees, petrified wood and 3,000 year-old Indian petroglyphs. Red sandstone formations formed from the sand dunes shifting 150 million years ago, hence the name Valley of Fire.

With summer temps exceeding 100-120 degrees, and mild winters, with temperatures ranging from freezing to 75 degrees, makes this a great winter camping destination.

Valley of FIre If you’re looking for more information on each rock point and some greta points of interest, visit: valley-of-fire.com. Each rock formation is fabulous on it’s own and the stories behind just add to the enchantment. The petrified wood and animals that cohabitate in this area are a worth the drive to explore.

 

The desert is extremely fragile so remember to pack out absolutely everything that you pack in leaving no trace and preserving this wondrous destination for years to come.

Valley of FIre If you’re looking to extend the exploration, campsites are available. RV camping with power and water hookups are also now available if you’re looking to add a little luxury to your stay. Camping is limited to 14 days in a 30 day period and we offer a number of budget RV’s to suit the journey.

Thanksgiving in an RV

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

As the weather turns cooler, pot lucks begin and then finally a wonderful gathering of family at Thanksgiving. This time of year always makes me think of my roots, where it all began. Family road trips can be it’s own adventure, but why not take one to the roots of Thanksgiving.

TOP STOPS:

Plymouth, Massachusetts

There’s no better place to start this journey then where the first historic gathering happened, Plymouth, Massachusetts, a 45 minute drive from Boston. At Plimouth Plantation, you can experience history brought to life with outdoor living exhibits, the Mayflower II, Pilmoth Grist Mill and traditional New England trimmings where you can talk about the 1621 feast that started it all.

New York City, New York

If you’re a fan of gatherings and thanksgiving, the biggest gathering to celebrate the holiday is in the Big Apple at the Thanksgiving Day Parade with over three million spectators.

One Way Road Trips: New York to Miami

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

We just love road trips and what better way to experience it then to use a one way RV rental. As falls comes into full swing and the colours are blooming, who wouldn’t want to travel from New York to Miami? With all of the adventures that New York and Miami have to offer, but also the secret spots of fun along the way.

New York to Miami Road Trip
So if you’re looking to rent an RV for a one way road trip from New York to Miami, here are our must see stops along the way:

First Stop: Washington DC
Park the RV for the day and make use of city sightseeing by hoping on a trolley bus tour of the old town or amphibious vehicle tours on the Potomac river. If you’re in the city and museums are your thing, a stop at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and for some time outdoors US Botanical Gardens is a gorgeous stop.

Beach Time: VA Beach
Check out where Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a 3-mile boardwalk that stretches along the oceanfront. There’s plenty of restaurants, nightlife and even amusement parks for the kids. Outside of city life, there’s hiking trails and endless water sports.

From there, you can take the drive to Blue Ridge Parkway/Skyline Drive all the way to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Mountains Are Calling: Great Smoky Mountains National Park
After lounging on the beach, it’s time to hit the mountains and explore the world renowned diversity of plant and animal life in the ancient mountains of the Great Smokies. The Appalachian Trail also passes through the center of the park.

Back to the Beach: Myrtle Beach
After some solid hiking in the mountains, it’s always great to relax. And where better then on Myrtle Beach with it’s 60-mile Grand Strand string of beaches.

Stepping into the City: Savannah River Street
After all of that relaxation, it’s time to head back to the city. But let’s take it slow. River Street in Savannah is the perfect place to start. With its century old buildings, spectacular galleries, and amazing brew pubs, restaurants and nightclubs, it’s the perfect stop before heading into Florida.

Fun for All Ages: Orlando, Florida
Walt Disney World is a stop that’s fun for all ages. Between the rides, entertainment, dining, events and tours, Disney is the place to be. There’s multiple theme and water parks that appeal to child in you where a magic world never has to end.

The Last Stop Between Orlando and Miami: Kennedy Space Center
The last leg between Orlando and Miami is a short 3 hour jet, stopping at the Kennedy Space Center is a must. Why Kennedy? Check out the rocket garden, the Apollo/Saturn V Center, the Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit and take a ride on the Shuttle Launch Experience to learn what it really feels like to launch into space.

It’s a great one way trip from New York to Miami with all kinds of hidden adventures for every soul.

West Coast Bird Watching Road Trip

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Are you an avid bird watcher or simply like to take in the sights? Check out this west coast road trip that features birding to see some of the most exotic birds in the USA.

Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, Port Lavaca, Texas
The Aransas National Wildlife Refuge is a great place to start off the trip. With 54,000 acre’s, this refuge is most famous for its rarest bird, the whooping crane. Out of the 250 left in the world, more than 100 of this highly endangered species usually arrives here between mid October and early April. To protect the cranes, visitors can view them only by boat, but it’s well worth the trip. 5,000 acres of the refuge is accessible by car and on foot making sightings of many herons and egrets, sandhill cranes, waterfowl, shorebirds, and terns plentiful during the winter months.

Cave Creek Canyon, Portal, Arizona
After hitting up the wildlife refuge, head west to southern Arizona. There are many outstanding birding locales in southern Arizona, however, Cave Creek is of special interest. The canyon not only houses a wide variety of species in a small area, but also many essentially Mexican birds. These birds don’t venture much farther north then Cave Creek including the elegant trogon, the painted redstart and many hummingbirds.

Monterey Peninsula, California
Next, head towards California and take a drive up Highway One to Monterey and keep an eye out for saltwater ducks, gulls and alcids such as guillemots, murres, and other pufflinlike birds on the municipal wharf and the Coast Guard pier. If you’re looking for a California native, the chestnut-backed chickadee can be found in the hills of Monterey cypress and pine.

Yosemite National Park, California
Yosemite is a unique birding locale as it offers 1,189 accessible square miles with elevations that range from 2,000 to 13,000 feet in the Sierra Nevada range. Due to the cross section of habitats, birds that are typically in more northerly locations, such as Canada, can easily be seen. The great gray owl, pine grosbeak, calliope hummingbird, white-headed woodpecker and many more .

Tule Lake, California
If you couldn’t get enough waterbirds, head up to Tule Lake which houses three national wildlife refuges – Clear Lake (not open to the public), Lower Klamath and Tule Lake itself. In the dry uplands you can spot the rarely seen sage grouse and in the fall hundreds of thousands of ducks, geese and swans stop here before continuing their migration south.

RV Tailgating Tips

Monday, June 6th, 2016

Tailgating is a uniquely American tradition. Experiencing it in a motor home is a unique venture.  With so many festivals and sporting events coming up this year, a good tailgating experience takes the cake. Here are our favorite tailgating tips.

Tailgating Tips:

The food – Likely the most important part of tailgating. Hot dogs and burgers simply won’t do! So bring out those BBQ’s and smokers and let your imagination roam. Here are some great recipes to get you started and you’ll be bringing in a crowd from the smell alone. You never know, maybe you’ll be entering into one of those high class BBQ competitions before you know it.

If you’re looking for something simple, according to the Tailgate Party Planner, “Jim’s Tail Gate Beer” is the most important recipe:

1 – Cooler
3 – Bags of Ice
1 – Case of Beer

It’s not difficult to make, but it’s a mandatory dish. The same goes for water. Pack more then you think you’ll need. Hydration is key.
Parking – If you’re hoping for a prime spot, get there early! Sweet and simple.

Pick a side – Make sure there’s no confusion about what team you’re supporting and decorate your RV accordingly. Balloons, banners, and lots of colors. You can even bring a satellite and TV to run the pre-game show or play old iconic games of your team. And don’t forget the face paint and team flags, although I’m fairly certain that those are a given.

The luxury of an RV – The best part about tailgating in an RV is that you have all of your essentials on board for any weather condition or any issue that may arise. It’s all right there, packed up in your RV, including your bed to ensure that no drinking and driving occurs.

Meet your neighbors – Don’t be shy, go say hi to your neighbors. Everyone is friendly and there for the same reasons you are. It’s like creating a neighborhood. Bring extra food, be friendly, be respectful of opposing fans, and have fun!

Pack out what you bring in – Respect your team and the stadium by picking up after yourself.

Tips for Parking Your RV Rental in Any City

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Driving your RV from attraction to attraction in a city can be tiring, our advice: park somewhere for a half or full day and let city transport take you from there!

Parking sign

Whether you rented a Class A rock-star-tour type RV for your whole family or a truck and trailer for you and your boo, our tips will help you navigate parking in any city like a pro.

  • Know how tall your RV is. Many inner city parking lots have height restrictions so it is best to know before-hand what kind of parking lot you are looking for.
  • Remember your license plate number. This one isn’t as important because you can always check it out but make sure you do that before you walk up to the parking metre, which in some cases can be a block away from where you parked.
  • Check the hours of operation for the lot you decide to park in, you don’t want to get towed.

Top places to park your RV rental

City Parks. Check out a map to know where to look for city parks. Most of the time they have outside parking lots which means no height restriction.

Shopping Malls are a great option because they are more likely to have free parking and are always close to public transportation to take you all over the city!

After a busy day of sight-seeing, shopping & soaking in the hustle and bustle of the city, you have the luxury of parking in a quiet area of the city or outside the city limits to take in the scenery for a relaxing evening before continuing on your RV rental adventure.
