6 of the Best RV Destinations for Spring Break

RV spring break

As the sunshine melts away the winter snow, you know it’s time to start planning your next RV vacation. For many people, spring’s warmer weather marks the start of their camping season. Whether you’re traveling with college buddies or your grandkids, spring break can be an excellent time to hit the road before the summer crowds flock to RV parks and campgrounds. 

Ready to plan your spring getaway? RV Trader has put together a list of six of the best RV destinations around the country for spring break.

Lewes, Delaware

The charming streets of Lewes, Delaware are perfect for travelers seeking a low-key destination with plenty to do. Lewes is best known for Cape Henlopen State Park, situated where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Delaware Bay. Along with waterfront views and uncrowded beaches, Cape Henlopen is also home to the Fort Miles Historic Area and a standing WWII Observation Tower that visitors can climb.

Take a day trip to nearby Cape May, New Jersey, which is just a ferry ride away, to explore the shops, restaurants, and seaside Victorian homes. The Cape May-Lewes Ferry can transport RVs as large as a Class A motorhome across the bay.

Lewes, Delaware

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Unhitch your travel trailer and sprawl out on the 60 miles of scenic coastline when you arrive in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The weather along the Grand Strand is typically warm enough for lounging with a book or making sand castles. Stroll the oceanfront boardwalk then get a bird’s-eye view of the beach from the SkyWheel.

Away from the beach, attractions and entertainment abound, from themed shows and live performances to outlet shopping and fascinating museums.

About 20 minutes away from Myrtle Beach is Murrells Inlet, known as the seafood capital of South Carolina. Explore this historic fishing village and grab a bite to eat that’s fresh from the docks.

St. Augustine, Florida

Venture down to St. Augustine, Florida to enjoy the coastal relaxation that the Sunshine State offers without the rowdy spring break crowds. The beaches near St. Augustine are both secluded and unspoiled, perfect for days of playing in the surf and sand.

This historic city, founded in 1565, features beautiful Spanish architecture and landmarks like Ponce de Leon’s “Fountain of Youth.” Walk along quaint St. George Street, through the historic district, and explore the city’s local bistros, boutiques, museums, and gift shops.

One of the area’s most unique attractions allows you to zipline across live alligators and crocodiles. That will certainly make a great story to tell your family and friends back home.

St. Augustine, Florida

Galveston, Texas

Cruise in your camper across the bay to the Gulf Coast of Texas. The island of Galveston boasts 32 miles of sandy shoreline that are the perfect retreat for relaxing under an umbrella or making a splash in the waves. From there, take a walk on the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, filled with rides, midway games and food.

Bird watchers can observe the spring migration of thousands of neotropical birds making their way north from South and Central America. Spring also signifies the start of crawfish season on the Gulf Coast. These bright red crustaceans are typically served boiled alongside corn and potatoes.

Galveston, Texas

Branson, Missouri

While Branson, Missouri is inland, this Ozark town features three lakes with plenty of RV parks and campsites nearby. Branson is best known for family-friendly entertainment. Attend live shows with toe-tapping song and dance, hilarious comedy, awe-worthy acrobatics, and more.

Branson also offers plenty to see and do outdoors. Spend a day on the water at one of the town’s three lakes, hike through the Ozark Mountains, or fly through the treetops on a zipline tour.

Silver Dollar City, voted one of America’s Best Amusement Parks by USA Today 10Best Readers, opens for the season in mid-March. Guests of all ages will love the thrilling rides, attractions, and old-fashioned fun at this local amusement park.

Big Sur, California

Breathtaking views and golden beaches sum up the Big Sur experience. Nestled between Carmel and San Simeon, take in views of the Pacific Ocean and rugged Santa Lucia Mountains as you travel California’s Highway 1 in your camper. Stand beneath the towering redwoods at Andrew Molera State Park one day, then view the sea lions relaxing on rocks at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve the next.

You could spend most of your spring break driving through Big Sur, stopping at scenic overlooks such as McWay Falls, Notleys Landing, and Bixby Bridge. Along the 90-mile stretch that makes up Big Sur, you’re sure to enjoy a meal with a view. Many restaurants boast ocean views and are situated on the area’s coastal cliffs.
