Trip Planning: 6 Research Tips for Your RV Vacations

Trip Planning: 6 Research Tips for Your RV Vacations

We are in serious trip planning mode for the spring season here at RVFTA and if you are a longtime listener and reader, you know that our number one travel tip of all time is to talk to the locals and trust their recommendations. But that doesn’t mean we don’t do our research ahead of time. Our current operating method is to arrive at any new destination with an understanding of what it is known for and a list of possible activities that we might enjoy. We also have a loose schedule in our minds since we have discovered it is easy... Read More

RVFTA 1st Annual Rally Roundup!

RVFTA 1st Annual Rally Roundup!

We did it. An actual RV Family Travel Atlas Rally took place this past weekend at Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in Narvon, Pennsylvania. Here are the 10 most important facts to report: 1. We have the nicest listeners and readers ever. Seriously. In the privacy of our own RV, we continuously marveled at that fact that all of our attendees ended up being super, duper cool.     2. Campfires and games create instant community. Everywhere and all the time.   4. Potluck dinners stand the test of time.   5. Everyone wants to win prizes.   6. RVers... Read More

Choose Your Own Outdoor Adventure in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Be honest…outdoor adventure in Myrtle Beach sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, right? Most people think of “The Strip” when picturing Myrtle Beach and imagine a boardwalk lined with hotels, rides, and arcade games. But the real reason we decide to go back to Myrtle Beach year after year? Stunning natural beauty. Surprised? We were, too.

Wild and Crazy Boardwalk Fun, Minutes from the Myrtle Beach KOA

Wild and Crazy Boardwalk Fun, Minutes from the Myrtle Beach KOA

The word camping usual brings to mind quiet, natural settings far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. But sometimes our family wants to be right in the middle of the action when we travel in our RV. As we mentioned in our campground review, the best thing about the Myrtle Beach KOA is that you don’t have to choose. This campground is a wooded retreat just steps away from all the excitement of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. There are enough miniature golf courses, amusement parks, and fun houses in Myrtle Beach to keep your... Read More

6 Amazing Family Activities at Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina

6 Amazing Family Activities at Brookgreen Gardens, South Carolina

Brookgreen Gardens, located in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, is just 30 minutes south of Myrtle Beach. It is a fascinating and unusual combination of a botanical garden, history museum, zoo, and nature center. There are so many different activities to enjoy while visiting, but it would be virtually impossible to see and do it all. Last year we wrote a philosophical post after visiting Brookgreen, focusing on how the garden hits the sweet spot of family travel and pleases both the young and old. This year we are getting a bit more practical.... Read More
