1. Seven Mile Bridge
Seven Mile Bridge, Seven Mile Bridge, Florida, USA
PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
Leaving Marathon, you’ll drive across the Seven Mile Bridge which spans the channel between Knight’s Key and Little Duck Key.
The history of this iconic structure dates back to the early 1900s when Henry Flagler built the Overseas Railroad as an attempt to lure tourists to the Lower Keys. The railroad was eventually converted into a highway, which stood for decades before a new span was built in the 1980s.
There are amazing water views along the entirety of the bridge and even better sunsets.
Remains of the Old Seven Mile Bridge run parallel to the new. More than two miles of the older structure remain open to foot traffic and the span is a popular spot for biking and fishing.

Located on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park, this campground is located at a higher elevation, affording wonderful views of the wide-open spaces. It's been named one of the best campgrounds in Colorado. Check it out: https://rvlifestyle.com/best-campgrounds-in-colorado/
This state park is situated inside the Cascade Range and Modoc Plateau natural region, and is set in a gorgeous forest. It has five miles of stream and lake shoreline, including Lake Britton, and amazing hikes.
There is also the gorgeous 129 foot Burney Falls waterfall that alone is worth the trip. The campground is also very nice, with a beach, boat ramp, camp store and more.
With over 60 different area attractions, Colorado Springs is the perfect place for everyone. Ride a train, visit a museum, go to the park or take the kids (or your grandma!) to the zoo.
If you love the outdoors, you can take a short hike or wander miles of trails. Or walk down the main street to find some delicious food to feed a range of palates.
If you're up for an RVing adventure, you can drive to the summit of Pikes Peak. You'll have a 14,150-foot view of the mountains and valley below.
The road up to Pike's Peak is very nice, but there are some hairpin curves with little or no shoulder or guardrails. Driving up isn't really a challenge, but the descent can be. There is a mandatory brake check and you'll want to use low gears to control your speed.

This is a gem of a location and RV resort park with all the amenities imaginable. Super for convenience, even direct access to the sands of the Pacific Coast and a bridge that connects the RV park to the quaint little Central California town. Full hook up, clean hot showers, onsite restaurant, camp store, picnic tables at each site and so much more. Hiking, biking, wine tasting, shopping, great restaurants and more.
This park got its name because of the bizarre, goblin shaped cliffs, standing eerily here and there across the landscape. It is pretty amazing. The exposed cliffs reveal parallel layers of rock bared by erosion. Because of the uneven hardness of sandstone, softer parts of the rock eroded more quickly than harder layers, creating the Valley of Goblins. Some people compare this place to Mars. There is hiking, biking. disc golf, camping and amazing dark skies to enjoy.
This left behind the bizarre goblin shapes seen today. Water erosion and the smoothing action of windblown dust work together to shape the goblins
Coeur d' Alene is known as a popular resort town with a 'floating green' hole on the golf coarse adjacent to the Coeur d' Alene Resort shown in the attached photo. The city is located in the Pacific North West area of Idaho and has a variety of campgrounds located with various amenities. Blackwell Island RV Park is a popular private campground with all the amenities listed! We have stayed at this RV location a couple of times and it does not disappoint. Located close to town and adjacent to the lake. A popular floating restaurant Cedars in only a few minutes away by car. Website: idahorvpark.com
Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument spans about one million acres. It is a vast stretch of desert with a white-sandstone mesa, with incredible views, natural bridges and even a 126 foot high water fall. Be sure to stop by visitor centers for an overview.
The area is mostly white-sandstone mesa with some pretty incredible views, as well as some steep drop-offs. Here are all the best things to see and do in the area with an RV: https://rvlifestyle.com/the-grand-staircase-8-best-things-to-do-see/
The Gulf Islands National Seashore is a 160-mile stretch of gorgeous and very secluded beaches. It is undisturbed by development and characterized by blue-green sparkling water.
So big is this property that it lies in two states – Florida and Mississippi – and is divided into 12 district areas.
The protected regions include mainland areas and parts of seven islands. If you count Alabama, the area is even longer. Some islands along Alabama coast were originally considered for inclusion, for some reason, they are not officially part of the national seashore managed by the National Parks Service.

Some say this is the most beautiful state park in Utah. Desert landscape with breath-taking canyons and cliffs. Amazing sunsets and sunrises. Dogs are permitted on the trails. The star-filled dark skies are breathtaking. We highly recommend.
What many say is the most beautiful state park in all of the United States. See why what we have to say here: https://rvlifestyle.com/dead-horse-point-and-goblin-valley/
Immense vertical cliffs meet with canyons carved by ice, water, and wind creating a visual masterpiece.
First Landing State Park is just a phenomenal place. Sites are wooded and the beach is accessible by several short walkways. The RV sites have hook-ups. We chose to dry camp and use our own shower and toilet.
We took advantage of the nearby Rite-Aid’s Amazon Locker!
