Now that summer is coming to an end, most RVers will probably start to put away their RV’s until next year. But, why do that when there are many incredible reasons to keep using your recreational vehicle during the fall season? Here are a few reasons that might convert you into an autumn RVer from here on out.
Fall Festivals and Events
All across the nation many cities and towns will be holding their annual Fall Festivals. This is a perfect way to extend spending some quality time with your family that will keep everyone entertained and happy. Whether you enjoy great live music, apple ciders and seasonal pies or like to get a little spooky with haunted houses during Halloween, the fall season offers a unique travel experience that differs from summer.
If you’re on the East Coast, the Pennsylvania towns of Arendtsville and Biglerville (outside of Gettysburg) come together to show their adoration of the fine autumn fruit, the apple, at the annual National Apple Harvest Festival. Go bobbing for apples, drink fresh-pressed cider, gobble down on apple dumplings and sauce, and, of course, grab a few, fresh apples to enjoy.
If you can’t make it to Munich for the celebration of beer that is Oktoberfest, come to the Midwest and celebrate at the Columbus Oktoberfest in Ohio. Complete with covered spaces for sampling brews, stages for live music, dance floors to kick up your heels, and eating German food favorites you can create your own memorable experiences.
If you prefer traveling the West Coast, the five-day Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta should be at the top of your list. Featuring Santa Fe’s 75 best restaurants along with 90 national wineries, you can view cooking demos, indulge in wine and food tastings, and take part in special luncheons and dinners.
Who doesn’t love seeing the absolutely stunning changes during the autumn season. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing the transformation of landscape color that bring about the most breathtaking visuals. State and national parks become some of the most beautiful natural attractions in the entire world. The U.S. Forest Service’s Fall Color Guide provides the best information on when fall colors are peaking all across the country. On top of the vibrant fall colors, the weather is cool and comfortable for almost everyone.
While Halloween isn’t necessarily the first thought that is associated with RV travels, almost every town in America will hold some type of event to celebrate the spooky holiday. Experience all the scary fun of haunted houses and ghost tours while traveling with style in your RV. If you’re not planning on traveling far, you can use your RV to pick up people in your neighborhood and receive a group rate visiting haunted houses. Many campgrounds are big on Halloween as well and provide a great time for traveling families during the season.
Those are a few reasons many people are finding the fall season the perfect time to take out their RV. You will soon realize that you are not sacrificing the fun by beating the typical RV rush of summer by choosing to wait until fall.
We hope you find this information helpful and motivational to get out on the open road and visit the beautiful fall season!
