10 Tips to Survive Disneyland in an RV

Friday, August 14th, 2015

As you’re sitting around your kitchen table discussing with the family where the next big trip to go, the kids always chant… Disneyland, Disneyland! And why not! There’s so much to see and do. Why not make it an adventure like no other and make it a road trip?

Disneyland
Here are our top 10 tips to surviving Disneyland in an RV:

  1. Where to stay? Are there RV Resorts close by? Sure there are! Check out this link for the top resorts with the best reviews.
  2. Enjoy the view. Don’t forget to enjoy the views during your drive. No matter where you are coming from, California has some amazing sights that shouldn’t be missed. Especially if you’re driving along the coast!
  3. How long are the lines? If you’re wondering how long am I going to wait in this line for, there’s this handy little app called MouseWait that will tell you all you need to know!
  4. But where do I park when I get there?! Check out this link on where to park if you don’t have a shuttle service at your RV resort (some resorts offer shuttle service to and from Disneyland. Be sure to check that out before taking parking.)
  5. When to visit. If you’re wondering when is the least busy time to visit, there is a formula for that! Whenever school is in and during the week. That’s your best chance at missing the huge crowds.
  6. Preplan.  Since you’ve decided to travel all that way to get to Disneyland, make sure to do some pre-planning and buy your tickets online and book your resort before hand. Purchasing tickets at the front gate is the most expensive spot. Check out this site for some great deals.
  7. Food and drinks. There are so many fun and amazing foods you can cook in an RV (stay tuned for our next blog post on all kinds of fun ideas) but can you bring outside food into the park? You sure CAN! As much as you want. Just don’t try to bring in a cooler or anything bigger then 24″x15″x18″. And no alcohol.
  8. Home away from home. One of the best things about bringing an RV is that you can lounge and nap at your leisure. No need to leave the room during mousekeeping. And no need to pack and unpack during your trip!
  9. Where to stay along the drive.  If you are going to a number of National Parks and State Parks then look at getting the Interagency Annual Pass for USD $80 rather than having to pay $20 or $30 per park. This all depends on how long your drive is, obviously.
  10. Enjoy the drive. Don’t forget about all of the other fun stops to make during your journey. Check out these fun roadside attractions and historic sites.

Cross Canada Adventure

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Driving across Canada has been on my bucket list for years. There is just so much open space and each province seems to offer a different view. Taking the Trans Canada Highway is one of those must do adventures.

Nova ScotiaNova Scotia

The east coast offers gorgeous views and boasts some of the best fish and chips that can be found. Don’t forget to pop into a few local restaurants to try the catch of the day.

Montreal

Montreal is one of those cities that is unique to Canada. They speak different language, have the best poutine (a must try when visiting Canada), and has a culture that is so open to community, music and the arts. Be sure to check the events calendar to see what is going on in the city as you’re passing through.

TorontoTorontoCNTower

Toronto, it’s one of my favorite cities. The food, the sights, the different cultural districts, The CN tower, the Skydome (yes, I’m still calling it the Skydome), the museums, the night life, the life, the city of love.
NiagaraFalls

Niagara Falls is also one of those places that is worth the detour off of the Trans Canada to see. The small town is quaint and the falls are boastful. Algonquin Park Canoeing
Algonquin Park

If you’re looking for a place to camp or do some canoeing on your trip, Algonquin Park is the place to stop.
BigNickel

Northern Ontario Canada

Continuing on the drive, northern Ontario is an experience with the twisty, rolling hills and colorful rocks. Just beware of the type of year as the bugs can be out of this world! Stopping in Sudbury to check out the Big Nickel and grab some lunch is also a great treat.

PrariesSaskatchewan

Manitoba and Saskatchewan offer golden fields that stretch for miles. Cities pop up out of no where and you really start to feel how much land Canada has to offer.

AlbertaLake Louise, AB

Alberta offers your first glimpse of the Rocky Mountains. They are an eye opener. Towering in the background as you come upon them. Stopping in Lake Louise and Banff are a must. The ski towns offer year round adventures and standing in the mountains is an experience that must be done!

Rogers PassGlacier National Park Bear Creek Falls

The drive between Calgary, Alberta and Revelstoke, British Columbia through Glacier National Park and Rogers Pass is my favorite stretch of the Trans Canada Highway. There’s just something about driving through the mountains that speaks to me. There’s nothing else like it.

Meadows in the Sky Revelstoke National ParkRevelstoke, BC

If you’re looking to have a meal on the top of a mountain, stopping in Revelstoke and visiting Mount Revelstoke National Park is a must. You can drive almost to the top and walk the last 1 km to summit the mountain. At the top, there is a short half hour hike through Meadows in the Sky that provides views of the mountain ranges that are a must see.

Victoria Island, British Columbia

Completing the coast to coast journey, taking the ferry to Victoria, BC is a must. The island is gorgeous and if you keep a look out you can see the whales playing in the water beside the ferry. It’s a perfect way to finish off an unforgettable trip!

What is your favorite stretch of the Trans Canada? We’d love to hear all about your adventures! And don’t forget to enter our photo contest for a chance to win a $100 gift Amazon gift card! Just send in a photo of you camping or rv’ing for your chance to win!

Why Music Festivals? Why RV?

Monday, March 16th, 2015

Music Festivals

I love music festivals. Discovering new artists, being in a crowd of people thoroughly enjoying the pumping tunes coming out of the speakers, and singing along to my favorite songs being sung by the artists themselves, is a feeling of freedom. From Coachella, to Lollapalooza, to Shambhala, to Osheaga, each offers a slightly different feel and experience. While Lolla happens in the fabulous Grant Park in the Windy City, Chicago, they offer the ultimate line up of artists right on the water, right downtown. Fun! Shambhala Music Festival brings the electronic groove to Southern British Columbia, Canada. You’ll be dancing the night away in a beautiful slice of forest and farm for the best outdoors experience. Osheaga is the mini, if you can call it that, sister to Lollapalooza and Coachella. Offering epic music in downtown Montreal in Jean-Drapeau Park. And then there is Coachella, with its two-weekend, three-day music and arts festival. Located in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert. No where else can you find the perfect variety of music, in a hot sunny desert with so many options for fun!

When getting around to all of these fun and fab music festivals there are many ways to live in comfort while not having to slog around in the mud and use public toilets. You can actually have that long desired shower before the end of the festival.

Enter the RV. Recreational Vehicle. Motor Home. Whatever name you choose the luxury it offers while camping out at a music festival is great. Here are a few great benefits to going to a music festival with an RV:

RV'ing at Music Festivals

1. Setup. Everything is already set up and ready to go when you arrive, and take down is super easy.
2. Privacy. You have your own private toilet, toilet paper and best of all SHOWER!
3. Location. You can stay right on the festival grounds, or nearby, which saves on taxi rides or additional car rental and parking costs.
4. Cleanliness. Your sleeping area is much easier to keep clean.
5. Food. You can easily cook your own food with nearly full size appliances.
6. Safety. All of your belongings are safely locked away.
7. Comfort. There’s nothing like sleeping in a comfy bed instead of on an air mattress.
8. Weather. If it rains, or snows, or is extremely hot or cold, you have a safe haven.
9. Sound. If the show goes all night and you’re ready to crash, an RV provides some sound protection.
10. Convenience. It’s like a hotel room where ever, whenever you want.

One Way RV Rentals

Friday, May 31st, 2013

One ways RV rentals can be a great way to see a lot of the country. Having the option to pick up in San Francisco and drop off in New York or Florida lets you drive across the country and then fly home. Maybe you want to see the Rocky Mountains, you could pick up in Denver and drop off in Seattle. Historic Route 66 is another must travel route. Starting in Chicago this highway takes you on one of the original highways from 1926. By the 1950’s and 60’s this highway was getting less and less travelers so new development stopped, so now travelling this highway is like taking a step back in time as you make your way to Los Angeles. Seattle, Atlanta, Boston, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Dallas, Miami, Orlando Las Vegas, the combination of trips are endless.

If you are going to plan a one way RV rental trip my advice to you is to plan the trip well in advance, 8 months to a year is not too far in advance to plan if you are planning on travelling June through September. Planning this far in advance will give you the most options as far of cities and size of RV. Start looking now for your trip next summer by filling out the city, date and vehicle fields above. Someone will get back to you with the availability for the trip you have selected.

If you are looking to book for a last minute special and your plans are flexible, fill in the fields above and write in the comment section that you are looking for a one way special and that your plans are flexible and someone will email you with the specials that are available.

Why not spend some time going one way from Orlando to Ft Lauderdale in January, what a great way to see Florida and beat the winter blues.
