We want to go on a trip but are first time travelers in our camper so we don't have a clue. I have been researching a little. I would like to go where there's country music festivals.

@Somersby What a wonderful trip! Do you know what route you'll be taking yet? Will you be going through the southern part of the U.S. or through the midwest/ northern states? Depending on your route, here are some of my favorite places and interesting sights (some I've been to, and some are still on my bucket list).

 

Southern Route:

Natchez Trace Parkway (Mississippi)

New Orleans

San Antonio--Alamo, Riverwalk

Mesa Verde NP (Colorado)

All the national parks in Utah: Bryce Canyon, Arches, Moab, Canyonlands, Zion

Monument Valley

Sedona, AZ

Grand Canyon

Las Vegas

Crater Lake NP

 

MW/Northern Route:

St. Louis--Arch

Carhenge (Alliance, Nebraska)

South Dakota--Badlands, Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore

Grand Teton NP

Yellowstone NP

Glacier NP

 

These are all pretty well-known destinations and sights. Maybe others will chime in with some off-the-beaten-path gems to explore along the way. Ending in Portland will be nice. It's one of my favorite U.S. cities. 

 

Happy travels!

  • Three girl friends in our early 70's are planning a cross country road trip (Florida to Oregon) in the fall. We would love some suggestions, we plan to hit all the national parks, Presidential Libraries and unique areas we can find. None of us have been to Oregon.
