After about a three-month closure, many states are beginning to re-open in phases after long closures. As more and more states across America continue to open up, consumers are looking for ways to get outdoors and recreate responsibly. Interest is continuing to grow and many consumers are looking to take RV related action this summer including overlanding and off-roaders as well. RVs provide a great way for consumers to enjoy vacations with their families, while still adhering to social distancing policies. If you’re looking for your next adventure, we’ve curated our Top 3 travel destinations in the US for your upcoming road trip.
- Big Sur, California.
Big Sur is a stretch of beautiful winding coastline between San Simeon and Carmel, California. Each year this area brings an estimated 5.8 million visitors from all over the world. If you love the outdoors, this is the spot for you! From the breathtaking scenery featuring pristine beaches and redwood forests, this location provides activities for the whole family. Never get bored on a camping trip to Big Sur featuring the amount of scuba diving, fishing, hiking and horseback riding they have to offer. Depending on which way you’re traveling, consider making a stop in Pismo beach for some world-class off-roading in the Oceano Dunes. Make sure you’re equipped with one of our Portable Air Compressors for easy airing up and down.
- Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
If you’ve never seen the Grand Canyon, now would be the perfect time! This national park is easily one of the most breathtaking of them all. The vastness and beauty of the canyon simply cannot be put into words. The Grand Canyon’s warmer temperatures allow for year-round camping and exploring. Choose between visiting the North Rim or the South Rim. The North Rim is more remote and only open from May – October due to the cooler weather. This side of the canyon is for the adventurer who wants to be away from the crowds. The South Rim is more heavily trafficked of the two options. Open year-round, the Grand Canyon is home to historic lodges, museums, many hiking trails and other attractions.
- Zion National Park/ Springdale, Utah
Located in the Southwestern corner of Utah near the Nevada and Arizona borders, Zion National Park is a convenient stop for those visiting Salt Lake City, Las Vegas or Grand Canyon National Park area. The highlight of Zion National Park is an expansive canyon averaging 2,000 feet deep. Zion Canyon offers many hiking opportunities for all different levels. There’s the 20 to 30 foot wide area known as The Narrows or the challenging area known as The Subway. And if you’re ultra-experienced, you’ll love one of the scariest hikes in America called Angels Landing.
But the best reason to visit Zion is you can also visit the popular Arches National Park North of Moab. This very popular destination is a great option for canyoneering, hiking, river rafting, biking, motorcycling, ATV riding, and 4×4 driving. The Moab area is home to many easy to difficult off-road trails for novice to experienced off-roaders.
Tips for RV’ers
If you’re an RV’er or overlander eager to get back on the road, we recommend practicing social distancing. This includes even if you are inside gas stations, convenience stores or visiting the camp you stay at overnight. Using a VIAIR compressor will help ensure your tires are properly inflated to keep you safe and avoid being stranded with a flat tire on the side of the road. Take a look our new line of RV-Safe portable tire inflators specifically designed for RV or overlanding tires to make sure you’re covered wherever you decide to travel this summer.
