It might seem a little premature to be planning your fall RVing trip, but the reality is, that crisp, cool time of year is just around the corner. Kids are preparing to head back to school, you’ve probably got one or two small trips planned in the next month, and then we will all enter into the humdrum routine of work and school.
Here are some of the main reasons we love RVing in the fall.
Avoid The Heat
The summer heat can be exhausting for many, however, during the fall season you can enjoy cooler mornings and warmer afternoons. This allows you to plan your activities based on more predictable weather patterns. Plan your hikes for the morning and indoor activities for the afternoons when the heat is turned up a little.
Enjoy Fall Foliage
Fall foliage is absolutely stunning. Depending on where you are in the country, foliage peaks at different times. According to tripsavvy.com, “Generally, the best times to view the fall colors are near the end of September in the far north, the beginning of October in the White Mountain region, and the middle of October in the south.”
Bring your camera and set up shop in your favorite national park to enjoy the fall foliage.
Summer is a notoriously busy time of year for national parks. Fall and winter, however, welcome a much needed slow down. When you head to a national park in the fall, you’ll get to enjoy some of our country’s most beloved sites without the crowds. Imagine getting to enjoy wildlife and sites like Old Faithful without massive crowds. You’ll get more photo opportunities and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.
Different wildlife are active during different times of the year. When you visit a national park in the fall, you get to see wildlife that might not be active during the warmer months. This is also a great chance to bring the kids along for an educational trip to learn about different wildlife and how they behave throughout the year.
