With the arrival of autumn, comes fall foliage and football. Cooler weather and shorter days are on their way, but that doesn’t mean that your camping and RVing fun has to end. Fall is a great time plan a camping trip to destination hot spots that may have been too busy during the summer. In the fall campgrounds and parks are less congested and rates are usually reduced. Many campgrounds offer kids of all ages fun, autumn inspired activities.
Consider a fall color tour while camping — from mid-September to late October the autumn foliage colors can be spectacular. To help you plan your fall color drive or nature hike near your destination, check online for tour dates and maps that list the best locations to view the changing fall colors.
Fall is the perfect time to visit orchards, farms and markets throughout the country. Cider mills and apple orchards are usually busiest during the fall months, offering fresh apples, cider and doughnuts. Check for farms near your campground that offer corn mazes, wagon rides and pumpkin picking during the fall months. Or find an enjoyable scenic railroad that offers a nice leisure fall inspired scenic trip.
With autumn’s arrival comes the tailgating season. Besides the excitement watching your favorite college or NFL team play, the tailgating tradition allows you to enjoy some leisure time with family, friends or complete strangers, before you enter the stadium. Tailgating in an RV is an experience that just may spoil you and your guests for life.
Besides having a roof over your head in case of bad weather while tailgating, most RVs have a bathroom allowing you to skip the porta potty lines and a refrigerator to keep your food and beverages cold. After the game, forget about sitting in traffic, fire up the grill for some hot dogs or hamburgers, watch game highlights on your TV or play some games until it’s time to leave.
Sooner or later, the cold weather will approach and many of us will be winterizing our RVs. So get out there and enjoy the fall camping season before it is too late.
Safe Travels and Happy RVing!
