Whether you are in the United States, February tends to be a bit of a gray and cold month. Luckily, there are plenty of warm places to escape with your RV during this time of year.
Whether you’re looking for long stretches of beach, stunning red rock formations, or inspiring architecture and history, each trip is guaranteed to cure seasonal blues and offer some sunny sites along the way.
1. Clearwater, Florida
When it comes to beaches, the weather is a top consideration. If you’re seeking warmth and Sun, February is your month. Clearwater, Florida – located on the Gulf of Mexico – gets an average of 288 days of sunshine per year. This makes it perfect for a beach trip in February.
Another great reason to go to Clearwater is that there are many activities available year-round: golfing (at one of several courses), shopping (at Westfield Countryside and Pier 60), taking in some local history at Caladesi Island State Park or Fort DeSoto Park, or enjoying live entertainment at Ruth Eckerd Hall.
The town offers many dining options and nightlife if you’re looking for a more lively vibe than the beach offers during this time of year (or any other time).
2. San Diego, California.
San Diego is a great place to visit any time of year, especially in February, when there is less crowding and higher temperatures than many other popular California cities. Take advantage of the milder weather (the average high temperature in February is 72°F), gorgeous beaches, and beautiful mountains by taking an RV trip to San Diego.
3. Moab, Utah.
Moab is an ideal destination for February travel. It’s one of the most popular winter destinations in the U.S., with plenty of warm weather, hiking trails and mountain biking opportunities to keep you busy. Plus, it’s just an hour from Arches National Park, which offers some of the most spectacular views in America—just like other beautiful places we recommend below.
4. Sedona, Arizona.
Sedona, Arizona. This town is one of the most beautiful places in the state and attracts travelers worldwide. During this time of year, you can expect mild temperatures (even snow in some areas), clear skies, and plenty of sunshine—a perfect combination for exploring Sedona’s many hiking trails.
One must-do activity is taking a hot air balloon ride over red rock formations at sunrise or sunset—you will be blown away by how breathtaking it will be.
You should also visit Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, Devil’s Bridge Trailhead Parking Area or Oak Creek Canyon Trailhead Parking Area for hikes that are sure to invigorate your soul and body.
If you’re planning on staying overnight during your visit to Sedona, opt for an RV park outside the city center to have easy access to all those fantastic hiking spots without having to drive far after a long day spent exploring the outdoors.
Here are some tips when visiting Sedona:
- Bring your camera. Everyone has one thing in common when they come here: taking photos of themselves posing with beautiful scenery behind them because they think it makes them look cooler than they actually do (just kidding).
- Leave valuables at home if possible, so nobody breaks into your RV while parked somewhere public like the Walmart parking lot. Don’t forget important things like wallets/purses, cash, credit cards etc. Make sure nothing valuable is visible inside before leaving.
5. New Orleans, Louisiana.
New Orleans is the place to visit if you’re looking for a warm-weather destination that can’t be beaten. The city’s French Quarter is always lively.
Still, February has even more fun in store: Mardi Gras falls on Fat Tuesday this year, which means food and drink specials abound (Mardi Gras beads are also an option).
If you want to stay dry during your trip, try visiting Audubon Zoo at Audubon Park instead—they’re home to over 4,000 animals representing 700 species.
If you’re looking for something more educational than a zoo, check out City Park as well, It includes several museums and playgrounds for children of all ages.
If you’d rather be outside than inside, take advantage of the park’s bike and running paths or hop on one of its many golf courses (including one designed by Tiger Woods).
