Why You Should Road trip Across North America on Your Next Vacation

If you’re looking for the ultimate vacation with your family this summer, why not rent an RV, pack your things and head out on the road? You don’t have to fly overseas to experience great culture, breathtaking views and ancient ruins.

There are many benefits to taking a road trip instead of flying; first, you can go where you want, when you want, on your own schedule. You don’t have to rush to catch a flight, fight traffic to get there on time, or be subjected to disrespectful treatment. Second, it’s cheaper. Yes, you’ll pay for gas, and your RV rental, but you won’t have to pay for hotels or restaurant meals. Third, there’s nothing like the open road to give you a perspective on nature and all it has to offer. Simply rent your RV, purchase your online car insurance and you’re good to go!

Here are some must-see sights in Mexico, the U.S. and Canada to give you a diverse and unforgettable experience that you and your family will remember forever:


Mexico


Mexico is a loved destination for those wanting to escape the frigid winters of the north. It offers beautiful scenery, a relaxed atmosphere and friendly people. Here a few places to include on your itinerary:


Chapultepec Castle, Mexico City


A nominal entrance fee will gain you entrance to one of the most beautiful structures in North America. Walk the gardens and tour this amazing castle with a breathtaking view of the city below. Be warned, though, there is a bit of walk to get there.

Tulum

Beaches, beaches and more beaches! Take a day to soak up the sun, or book a guided tour through the Tulum ruins. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even zip line through the jungle or snorkel in a cenote.


Iztaccihuatl, Puebla

If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at mountain climbing, this is your chance! Located in Puebla, this is a very unique mountain. Many called it the ‘sleeping lady’ as if you look from the west or the east, you can distinctly see the shape of a woman. Even if you don’t climb it, you’ll want to see it.


U.S.

There are too many destinations to mention, but here are some of the most popular:


Grand Canyon, Arizona

Everyone needs to visit the Grand Canyon at least once in their lifetime. It’s a great stop on your North American tour that the entire family will enjoy. Take in the views or try white-water rafting down the Colorado River.


Yellowstone National Park


Infamous for being the world’s first National Park, there’s much for you to see and explore. From volcanoes to wildlife, you could easily spend a week here.


Taos Pueblo, New Mexico


A UNESCO World Heritage Site, these mud and straw adobes have been home to Tiwa-speaking Native Americans for almost 1,000 years. As you check out the dwellings, strike up a conversation with the friendly occupants inside who are more than happy to share their stories.


Canada


The true north strong and free has so much to offer, it’s hard to know where to start! While it’s a great place to visit anytime, this year marks an especially special time – July 1st marks Canada’s 150th birthday! As part of the celebration, all of the National Parks are free of charge this year (there are 46 of them!).

No matter where you go in this great country, you’ll encounter friendly people, diverse culture and plenty of wildlife.

Here are just a few stops you can make in this vast country:

Flowerpot Island, Tobermory, Ontario

You’ll have to park your RV and hop on a boat, but it will be worth it! Located in the Bruce Peninsula in Tobermory, Ontario, this island offers breathtaking views of the pristine waters of Georgian Bay. Take the day and hike the loop trail, or explore the caves.


Banff National Park


Turquoise glacial lakes, Rocky Mountain peaks and a picture-perfect mountain village await; take in the scenic drives and abundant wildlife – it’s all here in Banff National Park. There are lots of activities to do here – hiking, swimming, skiing and camping (and don’t forget admission is free in 2017!).


George Street, ST. John’s Newfoundland


This infamous street in downtown St. John’s features two blocks of restaurants, pubs and bars. It has a unique reputation that brings thousands of visitors here each year. Some notable bands that have played here include Ron Hynes, Blue Rodeo and Great Big Sea. Take in a fine dining experience or enjoy one of the two annual music festivals.

Wherever you go this summer, do it with family and make memories that will last a lifetime.
