Virginia's Eastern Shore
The Delmarva Peninsula, a dangling appendage 180 miles long that is suspended between the Delaware and Chesapeake bays, is attached to the mainland only by a thin sliver of land less than 15 miles wide where the states of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware come together. In fact, the peninsula is really an island, since the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal connects the upper Chesapeake with Delaware Bay, so that you can only get to the peninsula by crossing a body of water.
Ghosts in all their forms have been haunting us mortals since the first caveman spotted St. Elmo’s fire. Haunted houses, old hotels, abandoned warehouses, creepy cemeteries, even a covered bridge in Vermont all have their unique resident spirits.
Scenic and Historic Railroads
The first primitive railroads in the 1820s had proven that goods could be moved from point A to Point B on rails. The newly designed flanged wheels would keep the engines and cars on the tracks and hundreds of tons of goods could be shipped on a single train.
Maryland's Civil War History
If the best way to see America is in an RV, then, Mitch Bowman reasons, the best way to learn about American history is in an RV. The chapter of history Bowman is most interested in is the Civil War, much of which took place on what we now call “back roads.” As executive director of the Civil War Trails program, Bowman knows that to see America, one must venture off the well-traveled highways and byways.
Where Cranes Gurgle & Geese Chatter
As I write this, I am sitting in my full-size pickup truck, deep in the heart of New Mexico’s Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuse. It is high noon and too bright and flat to photograph. Instead, my fingers gently touch the keys of my laptop computer, while gangs of sandhill cranes move from one field to the next. Their gurgling sounds give me reason enough to stop typing and look up in wonder. I can't help thinking that the birds sound like they are gurgling underwater.
New Hampshire's White Mountains Call RVers
Early colonists came to New England seeking a better way of life. For some, this meant owning their own home and land. For others, religious freedom. And for some, political reasons helped realize dreams. Today, visitors travel to this area and New Hampshire’s White Mountains for many reasons. But all will agree: It’s not the destination, but the journey that’s important.

A popular stopping place for pioneers headed west, this was the home of celebrated showman Buffalo Bill Cody.

The Wild Side of Chicago
Lovers of the outdoors, we typically spend our days watching animal life, often visiting national parks, and searching for animals at national wildlife refuges around the country. So when we visited Chicago, we opted to find the wild side of the city. We searched out the best places for views and found plenty in the way of animal life, including an array of delightful big-city museums, aquariums and zoos, and in doing so we discovered the “wild side” of Chicago.
The Unspoiled Nature and Beauty of Jekyll Island Campground
Established in 1886 as a winter haven for privileged American families, Jekyll Island Club was launched as a 240-acre river-side compound of exclusive estates clustered around a huge, elegant clubhouse. As is still true of today’s visitors, travelers who made their way to Jekyll at the turn of the 20th century were drawn to the pristine world of the barrier island—miles of sandy beaches and dunes, salt marshes, oceanside forests, and abundant watchable wildlife.

The Lure of Smugglers’ Notch
Just a few miles beyond the tourist destination that is Stowe, VT lays the pastoral haven of Smugglers’ Notch State Park. A narrow pass through the Green Mountains with 1,000 foot cliffs on either side, Smugglers’ Notch began as a mere foot and horse path. However, an Embargo Act, prohibiting trade with Great Britain and Canada passed by President Thomas Jefferson in 1807, changed the history of this nameless, seemingly insignificant trail.

Camping in Alaska’s Spectacular Denali National Park
Denali National Park and Preserve is how it appears on the map, but the name of the mountain is Mt. McKinley (sometimes called Denali by the locals—just to keep you guessing). The word "Denali" comes from the Athapascan Native Americans. It means "Great Mountain", or perhaps High Mountain; it’s hard to find out the exact meaning. That’s okay, either will get you there.
Growing Aup as it did on the shores of Lake Michigan where what became known as the Manitowoc River empties into the third largest of the Great Lakes, it’s no surprise that Manitowoc’s history is immersed in maritime tradition.
Canada’s Wonderful Waterton Lakes National Park
In the Canadian Rockies, Alberta’s Banff and Jasper national parks get most of the glory and almost all the visitors.

But there’s another national park to the south, resting against the United States border and Glacier National Park. It is Waterton Lakes.
Insider’s Guide to Yellowstone
Yellowstone, although seventh in size among national parks, is a very big place. It’s larger than Rhode Island and Delaware put together.

Seen Through New Eyes
Smoky Mountain Memories
Unlike Yellowstone National Park, which was created mostly from public lands, Great Smoky Mountain National Park was purchased tract by small tract from lumber companies, farmers and other private landowners. Created on June 15, 1934, it was truly a labor of love as funding came largely from private contributions, grants from the states of North Carolina and Tennessee and even pennies saved by school children.
Ride the Highlands
Looking for a quiet weekend of camping, fishing, swimming, or perhaps a day riding your bike? Look to the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest (NHAL).

Knoebels Amusement Resort: A One-of-a-Kind Park
Relaxing. Traditional. Comfortable. Such words are seldom associated with an amusement park, but perfectly appropriate for Knoebels Amusement Resort located in Elysburg, Pennsylvania. It’s America’s largest free-admission park.
The Flavors of Pennsylvania
More than 40 years have faded into the fuzzy, deep recesses of my memory since I took William Graham Sumner’s advice (“Go west, young man!”) and left my birth home in Pennsylvania for the lure of the West Coast.
Newfoundland’s Rugged West Coast
“It is 10 o’clock eastern time. Ten-thirty in Newfoundland.” So said Canadian radio. That always made me laugh. Plus there were all those “Newfie” jokes. Well, I was about to see it all for myself.
When you think of the Ozarks, visions of picturesque mountains, clear, flowing streams and beautiful scenery instantly come to mind. After a recent trip there, however, I now not only picture those images, but also visions of beautiful caves filled with impressive formations that truly dazzle the eye. The most well-known and recognized cavern in Arkansas’ Ozarks is, without a doubt, Blanchard Springs Caverns, and there are three different tours available for exploring them.

Attracting visitors year-round, Aiken, South Carolina, offers the sublime complement of agreeable climate with many attractions.

It also claims a place in history as the site of one of the last Civil War battles.
The Lonely Road to Great Basin National Park
Heading east from Lake Tahoe, U.S. Highway 50 takes you to Fallon, Nevada. Continuing across the Silver State and into Utah, the highway is known as the Loneliest Road in America. In 1986,
called it that because there were only three towns from Fallon to Delta, Utah, a distance of over 400 miles—and no services in-between. We’re talking pure desert wilderness for quite a long way.
This corner of northeastern Minnesota offers adventurers the storied and rugged north shore of Lake Superior and easy access to the heavenly Boundary Waters Wilderness.

If you're looking for a place to plan your next RV road trip, consider historic and beautiful Prince Edward Island. Here are a few of Prince Edward Island's highlights, plus some advice on choosing Prince Edward Island campgrounds that will surely make your trip a road trip to remember.
Glacier earned national park status in 1910 with the help of George Bird Grinnell, its greatest proponent at the time. “Nestled in a far-off corner of Montana,” he wrote, “is the crown of the entire continent.” The park takes its name from the impressive tracts of super-compacted snow that line the park’s highest valleys.

Exploring Cape Breton Island

Birthplace of Texas
Appropriately named Washington, this small town was the seedling that grew into the Texas Republic.

The next day the delegates made that declaration.
Las Vegas - More than Just a Place to Gamble
Located 300 miles or more from any other large city—and those miles being the beautiful but imposing raw deserts of the American southwest—Las Vegas is the preeminent city of paradoxes. It is called with varying terms of endearment (or disdain) Sin City, the Entertainment Capital of the World, Lost Wages, Garden of Neon, and City without Clocks.
Safely Letting Your RV Cat Outdoors While at an RV Campsite
Letting your cat outdoors while you are RVing is a controversial issue.

In this article, rather than discuss the political hot issues, we will discuss the practical aspects of letting your cat outside while RVing.
Carlsbad Caverns National Park
First a bit of science: The basic rock in the Carlsbad Caverns area is limestone, which was formed more than 200 million years ago when the region was much lower and covered by an inland sea. Movement of the earth’s crust (plate tectonics) began to lift the land above sea level about 20 million years ago, and the processes of erosion started their work.
Rock Island State Park, Wisconsin
The state of Wisconsin has the shape of a mitten, and the majority of the landmass that forms the “thumb” is known as Door County — a Mecca for tourists.

Death Valley: More Than Just Desert
Located on the border between California and Nevada, Death Valley was identified by the famous American scenic photographer Ansel Adams as one of only two places where he would never run out of exciting things to photograph. For those who know Adams’s work, that is high praise, indeed.

Sampling the Beauty and Bounty of Buzzards Bay
The Bay of Fundy
Taking the ferry to Deer Island, I drove right out to the campground next to the "Whirlpool," set up camp and watched for the high drama of the swirling water. Nicknamed "Old Sow," the 300 foot diameter whirlpool is the largest in the world, although it is not the most dangerous.

New Brunswick’s North Coast and Acadian Village
One of the fun things on this extended trip to Canada's Atlantic Provinces was trying to deal with the concept of my fuel consumption rate. Figuring out mileage while driving through Canada goes something like this: "Let's see, it took 45 liters to go 200 kilometers. How many liters are there in a gallon?
Portland and the Columbia River Gorge
The biggest park within any American city's borders is in Portland. Forest Park is 5100 acres (by way of comparison ... New York's Central Park is 843 acres and San Francisco's Golden Gate Park is 1017 acres), and offers hiking trails as well as grassy areas. It's a wilderness surrounded by a city.
Canada’s Banff and Jasper National Parks

Down through the years these ancients were followed by the Apache, Comanche and Kiowa. Prairie schooners on the "Texas Route" and the Texas 49ers bound for the gold mines of California passed through, and in the 1850s the Butterfield Overland Mail Route from St. Louis to San Francisco stopped off at The Tanks. Always, one thing remained constant, the water in the huecos. It was the traveler's lifeblood.
Wonders of Western North Carolina
Asheville, the region's largest city, has a long history as a tourist destination. As early as the 1800s, people were traveling here for the cool mountain air and the sulfur springs, both considered beneficial for good health.

Oregon’s Glorious Coast
Continuing south, you pass through Seaside, Oregon's oldest, largest ocean–side resort. And then it's on to Cannon Beach for a look at offshore Haystack Rock.
