Wildflowers are one of those much-anticipated spring sights that make you stop and think about all of nature’s beauty, and there are few spots throughout the United States that seem to put on an extra-special show. Fire up your RV for the season and head across the country to some of these gorgeous wildflower sighting destinations.
Crested Butte, Colorado
Known as the Wildflower Capital of Colorado — Crested Butte is one of the best places in the country to find an abundance of spring and summer wildflowers. And if you can’t seem to get away in May or June, July is one of the best times to visit as Crested Butte hosts the annual week-long Crested Butte Wildflower Festival.
Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
If you’re hoping to stay a little closer to Maryland in search of spring wildflowers, the Shenandoah National Park is one of the best places in the east. Over 850 wildflower species grow in Shenandoah National Park — nestled within the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains — and you’re guaranteed to see everything from yellow violets to pink lady slippers, wild geraniums, trilliums and more. And although the flowers start popping up in March, May is the perfect time to admire the spring colors or even attend the much-anticipated Wildflower Weekend.
Glacier National Park, Montana
Head way out west to an area of the country where spring has finally poked its head out from beneath the snow. Glacier National Park’s most vibrant wildflowers (close to 1000 different species) finally fill this massive park in the summer months of July and August. So if you’ll be getting a late start on your RV adventures this spring, or are planning to be in Montana for its warmest months, you’ll fall in love with the wandering daisies, lupine, Monkeyflowers, sticky geraniums and hundreds of other flower species.
