When winter seems like its never going to go away, your only choice is to go away from it. Fire up your RV and head to one of these southern winter escapes. The warm weather, endless sightseeing and sandy beaches will help you forget about snow and ice in no time.
Charleston, South Carolina
Few cities have all that Charleston has to offer — beaches, history, five-star dining, nightlife and mild winter weather. If you’ve been feeling cooped up inside all winter, Charleston, S.C., is the perfect place to get outside and explore.
When you’re looking for a beach vacation that won’t break the bank, Galveston, Texas, offers numerous RV parks with extended stay rates, so you can park all winter long. Camp just a few steps from the ocean or explore the historic district — you may make winters in Galveston a new tradition.
Key West, Florida
Most travelers think of high-rise resorts and expensive cocktails on the beach when they think of Key West, but this tropical paradise doesn’t have to eat up your savings. Stay at Leo’s Campground — the most affordable RV park in the Florida Keys — and you’ll enjoy that upscale resort feel for a reasonably monthly rate.
Wilmington, North Carolina
Located just a few hours north of Charleston, Wilmington, N.C., is the Holy City’s mellow cousin. Relax on the uncrowded beaches, explore a more mild downtown scene or just kick back at the campsite and enjoy the warm winter temperatures. The North Carolina coast offers breathtaking views and outdoor fun all year long.
New Orleans, Louisiana
Whether you’re in the mood to party, dance, sightsee, eat or shop, few cities are as vibrant as New Orleans. Stay right in the French Quarter at French Quarter RV Resort or relax on the waterfront away from the action at Pontchartrain Landing RV Park. And whatever you do, don’t miss Mardi Gras.
