6 Activities to Make the Most of Spring Break in Your RV

RV vacation

If the winter weather has kept you home for several months, spring break is the perfect time to hit the road for an adventure. For many people, spring is also the kick off to camping season. Give yourself a break from life’s day-to-day responsibilities and just focus on relaxing and having some fun. If you’re thinking about spending spring vacation on the road, check out RV Trader’s six activities to make the most of spring break in your RV.

1. Head to the Beach

What better way to put winter’s chill in the rearview mirror than with a trip to the beach. Staying in your RV is more affordable than booking a hotel or rental home, especially with the spring break crowds. You can either find parking near a public beach access or unhitch your travel trailer nearby and drive your tow vehicle.

If you do stay at an RV park or campground, we recommend making your reservation early. Once you do, all that’s left is to load up your camper with blankets, chairs, and beach toys and get ready for a fantastic vacation in the sand and surf.

2. Explore a National Park

Spring break is a great time of year to visit a national park. Many national parks boast breathtaking landscapes, roaring waterfalls, and memorable wildlife sightings. Hit the road for one of America’s national parks to see the animals wake up from their winter hibernation and the wildflowers start to bloom. 

Spend the day hiking, biking, or simply cruising around in your camper or tow vehicle. Most national parks can accommodate RVs up to 27 feet long, including many Class C motorhomes. Reservations do fill up quickly to stay at the on-site campgrounds, but most national parks also have other campsites nearby to choose from.

3. Visit an Amusement Park

Whether you’re traveling with kids or you’re a kid at heart, there’s nothing more exciting than visiting an amusement or theme park. However, admission tickets alone can cost a pretty penny, and your vacation budget increases when you factor in the cost of staying in a hotel closeby. Fortunately, you have an RV, so your accommodations travel with you.

Popular amusement parks often have convenient and less expensive campgrounds nearby. Some will even offer discounts and coupons to use at local attractions, including the amusement park.

4. Have a Picnic

No matter where you are, a picnic lunch is a great way to spend a warm afternoon. Hop in your RV and head to a park or another scenic locale. You can either prepare your food ahead of time or make it in your RV’s kitchen. Enjoy your meal under the spring sunshine or in the shade beneath your camper’s awning.

5. Host a Movie Night

Another great spring break activity, whether you’re on the road or at home, is to host a movie night. You can do this with family, friends, and neighbors outdoors. After dark, pop some popcorn and set up a portable projector. You can project a movie right onto your RV or on a screen draped across the side.

If you want to have a movie night at your campsite, make sure to get permission first and abide by proper late-night campground etiquette

6. Discover Roadside Attractions

If you do decide to take a roadtrip in your RV for spring break, stop along the way to enjoy one of America’s many roadside attractions. These roadside attractions offer fascinating and unusual sights to behold, along with being great pit stops for long rides. As you plan your trip, use websites like to see what oddities and attractions will be on your route.

One of the best parts of having an RV is the freedom to go almost anywhere. Spending spring break in your RV is even more worthwhile when you get to return to your mobile home away from home after a day of adventures, excitement, or relaxation.
