We RV every summer for 4-5 months , each time to different States/Provinces.


In 2009 we started in N.B and visited,Maine-NH-VT and Upstate NY ending the trip next to Toronto.


In 2010 we plan to pick up the rig from Toronto ( it is stored there

for the winter)and Explore North West

Ontario-Michigan-Pennsylvania-Maryland , Virginia and back to Toronto

(from June till October)


Planning is part of the fun and I am going to do it during the winter.


Our interests are mainly nature oriented,hikes,scenic drives,history,culture and special attractions.


Would be happy to get suggestions.


Thank you.

In southeast Pennsylvania;

Look up French Creek State Park....only electric hook up...have dump station....hiking trails, fishing, swimming, etc. [

I will be there June 4, 5, 6, 2010 with my family.

Visit Hopewell furnace, next to French Creek,...a national historic site....made iron stoves, cannon balls, etc., in 1700"s.

visit Amish Country in Lancaster county....visit outlet stores in Reading PA.

In Virginia, visit endless Caverns campground and tour the caverns..take your camera.

from there tour part of the Skyline Drive to route 64, then head east to Heritage Campgroundnear historicWilliamsburg, then the Shore area in Virginia [nice campgrounds in Norfolk/ Virginia Beacharea] and Maryland's Eastern shore.

Williamsburg---outstanding. Then there's Baltimore, inner harbor, Philly for a Cheesesteak, swing down to Gettysburg. Daniels family farm CG in Boston. When in Michigan don't miss Mill Creek CG (another of our favs) in Machinac City you could swing down through Frankenmuth then West thru Penn catching Erie (islands) or go a bit South thru the Smokies(Blue Ridge, take in Ashville)----wow am I jealous ! I only get a couple weeks at a time!

We spent 2 weeks in Virginia last summer and loved it! We had originally planned to go to New England but I ended up in the hospital so we had to scrap that plan.By the time I was "up to speed" again we only had a few weeks before the annual Myrtle Beach trip so we decided tospendwhat time we had left in Virginia since it would be on the way to SC.We found the Williamsburg area a little confusing until we figured out that there is 1Colonial Williamsburg, 2 Jamestownes, and 2 Yorktowne sites. See them all if you have time. The Jamestowne and Yorktowne sites are duplicated because the National Parks Service runs sites that are on the actual locations of the Yorktowne Battle and Jamestowne settlement. The Virginia Historical Society (I think that is correct) run renactment and recreated sitesbased near the original Jamestowne and Yorktown locations. If you have to choose 1 over the other I liked the National Parks sites best but see all of them if you can. We did 1.5 days in Williamsburg, 1.5 days split between the 2 Jamestowne sites and1 day split between the 2 Yorktownes We stayed at American Heritage RV Park. We really loved The Shenandoah National Park. We stayed at the NPS Cgs. (No hook-ups but generators allowed during certain hours, water available and dump stations) We stayed in Mathews Arm (North end of park) and Loft Mountain (South end of park). The CGs fill up on the weekend so avoid that if possible. Mathews Arm was very pretty and vacant! Only about 6 rvs there. Loft Mountain had very private sites but was busier but still not crowded at all. There are also several Presidents homes you can tour in Va. We saw Jeffersons, John Adams and James Monroes homes. Very awe inspiring to walk the same floors as some of these greatmen. We also went to Norfolk to see the Navy base. Take the Harbor tour to go out to see some of the Navy ships in dock. In Dearborn, Michigan you should see the Henry Ford Museum. I have never been there but my wife has and she said it is outstanding.

Enjoy the trip!

Lonnie

I am hoping to get back to New Mexico in 2010 but that is budget and time willing. I will be taking more local trips this year through New England as I have yet to fully explore my own backyard



As far as dreams, I'd love to get to the factory rally.

Wow!! I have been to many of the area's everyone here has mentioned. It's enough to hop in the truck, hook up the 5er and head out! We're deffinately going to Williamsburg this summer, and will probably go down to the Virginia Beach area. This will be via Pennsylvania, and Maryland, with stops along the way.







I have a few friends that like to do the European or Caribean thing. However, as any good RV'r knows, there is so much to see in our own country that it is impossible to see it all in one life time. What the heck, we can give it a darn good try, eh?

Very well put! After we started traveling with the 5er I lost all desire to travel "abroad". I am sure there are many wonderful things to see and do outside this country but I don't think I will finish seeing everythinghere with enough time left on my meter to worry about anywhere else.
