California: An Airstreamer’s Paradise

CaliforniaAirstreamParadiseWith winding mountain roads, the deep blue Pacific and cactus-littered highways, California may be the best place in the world to enjoy your Airstream. There’s an atmosphere for everyone in our nation’s third largest state, so get behind the wheel, and don’t forget to check out these amazing spots.

Big Basin Redwoods State Park

Just north of Boulder Creek, Big Basin Redwoods State Park is the oldest state park in California. The breathtaking landscape has everything you could dream of in a campground. Sit by the ocean and relax with the Pacific waves lapping on the beach, or hike over 2,000 feet to the park’s highest point. Located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, you’ll be submerged in 18,000 acres of forest with redwoods, oaks, conifers and seemingly endless wildlife. Pull your Airstream up to the park any time of year, but don’t forget to call ahead in summer. View full post…

10 of the top RV campgrounds in Florida

If your goal is to get away and see the world, nothing matches traveling in an Airstream. Airstream road trips and camping let you have all the comforts of home in your own personal space, and unlike impersonal flying, you are on the ground through all your travels, soaking up everything the world has to offer. Florida is a worldwide destination for a reason, and below are some of the best RV parks to experience the amazing weather and awe-inspiring sights in the state.

Manatee Springs State Park
An hour out from Gainesville, Manatee Springs State Park lies in the heart of the Florida wilderness. The main draw is the water activities: in addition to open water for swimming and snorkeling, the park also offers cavern scuba diving. Just under ten miles of nature trails and, if you arrive between November and April, the calm packs of friendly beasts for which the park is named make it a peaceful getaway. Stays cost $20 per night, plus admission.

Big Cypress National Preserve
Big Cypress boasts of being one of the first national preserves created by the U.S. National Park System. Located about 45 miles out of Miami and adjacent to the Everglades, Big Cypress is home to many of the same animals you find at that well-known park: alligators, manatees, and cranes among others. Doubling as an Indian Reservation for the Seminole and Miccosukee tribes, some of the best wading grounds in the country can be found here for only $16 per night at the Midway Campground.
