by Jun 17, 2022Camping, Blog, RV

As an East Coaster myself (I’ve lived my entire life on the east coast), I can tell you that our part of the country is stunning. As much as I love visiting other places in the U.S. There’s nothing quite like returning to my home region and exploring some of its under-appreciated gems. 

In this post, we’ll talk about 10 of the best destinations for RV travel on the eastern side of America. From serene lakes and state parks to charming seaside towns, these places have something for everyone.

1. Myrtle Beach State Park, South Carolina

Chincoteague Island is a popular destination for people who want to see wild ponies. There are, however, many other attractions on the island that make it worthy of your visit.

The beauty of Chincoteague Island lies in its wilderness, so don’t forget to pack your binoculars and camera. You can expect to see abundant wildlife while staying here—coyotes, foxes, deer and wild turkeys are just some examples. And if you love nature photography or bird watching (which we know you do), then this is definitely the place for you.

If you’re looking for something more modern than camping out in a tent or RV, try one of the resorts on Chincoteague Island. 

They offer luxury accommodations on top-of-the-line sites with plenty of amenities such as pools or spas where guests can relax after enjoying activities such as golfing or even simply strolling through town and visiting historical landmarks like The Pony Penning Museum & Shop.

These sites  tell visitors all about how these gentle creatures became part of our lives today through various displays set up throughout their facility including one dedicated entirely towards educating children about what exactly “roundups” mean by displaying different types throughout history where kids could get hands-on experience touching them too.

3. Peek’n Peak Resort and Spa, New York

Peek’n Peak Resort and Spa is a great place to stay. The resort offers various fun activities for all ages, including water park rides, mini-golf, and an indoor driving range. 

The spa has many different treatments, from massages to facials to manicures. You can also enjoy the pool, hot tubs and sauna on-site at the spa or in your own room.

4. Niagara Falls, New York

Niagara Falls, New York

Niagara Falls is a popular tourist destination, and with good reason. You’ll find plenty to see and do in this Canadian-style city. The main attraction here is, of course, Niagara Falls itself – it’s a beautiful sight that you won’t soon forget.

Many attractions in Niagara Falls keep you busy while visiting the area. The Skylon Tower provides panoramic views from its observation deck above the falls; if you’re looking for something more active but equally impressive, try ziplining over the waterfalls themselves. 

For those who prefer more peaceful pursuits, there are also several parks nearby where you can relax with friends or family members: Victoria Park boasts lush greenery plus picnic tables under shady trees.

Rainbow Park has beautiful floral gardens that will make anyone feel serene on even their worst days; while Old Fort Erie offers historical tours (and admission prices) as well as fun activities like laser tag games and paintball tournaments.

Finally, we know what you’re thinking: “That’s all great information, but I want more.” Well, fear not—there’s plenty more where this came from.

With so many amenities available at each resort location along our route, including swimming pools heated year-round 24 hours daily by solar panels located atop each structure which convert heat into electricity, thus reducing costs associated with running traditional heating systems such as natural gas lines, etcetera ad infinitum et cetera (not really).

5. Acadia National Park, Maine

The only national park in New England, Acadia National Park is one of the most popular destinations on the east coast. The park has many hiking, biking and kayaking options and an excellent chance to see wildlife like moose and eagles.

One great thing about visiting Acadia in the winter is that it’s less crowded, so you’ll have more room to enjoy yourself. This also means you can take advantage of the resort amenities without feeling like sharing them with thousands of others.

6. The Romer’s Farm Market and Restaurant, Ohio

Romer’s Farm Market and Restaurant is a family-owned and operated farm market and restaurant. They have a large selection of homegrown produce, which they sell on their own or on other farms in the area. 

Romer’s also serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, homemade baked goods including pies, cakes and cookies, and homemade jams and jellies. They have a picnic area available for those who want to bring their own food or buy from them.

Romers has a full kitchen, so if you are looking for some good food, this place is for you. Having such a variety of options will definitely be something for everyone here. The prices aren’t too bad either–especially considering how delicious everything tastes 🙂

7. Bushkill Falls, Pennsylvania

Bushkill Falls, Pennsylvania

Bushkill Falls is a great place to visit if you are looking for a natural waterfall and hiking trails but don’t want the crowds of Niagara Falls. 

In Dingman Township, Pennsylvania (just east of Allentown), Bushkill Falls is open year-round and features a scenic path along the waterfalls with several points where you can get close enough to touch them.

It’s also an excellent spot to fish or swim because there are areas where it is shallow enough for children to play. There are also covered pavilions with picnic tables available near both entrances to Bushkill Park. You can stop by before or after your hike if it starts raining while you’re exploring the park.

The entrance fee is $12 per vehicle on weekdays and weekends during the summer months; there is no fee during other seasons except Thanksgiving Day through December 24th, when it’s free admission all day long.

9. Bar Harbor, Maine

If you’re looking for a beautiful summer getaway, Bar Harbor is a great place to visit. The town has long been a popular tourist destination, and for a good reason. With its picturesque views of the harbor and Acadia National Park, it’s no wonder why so many people flock here every year.

The weather in Bar Harbor is perfect for exploring Maine’s outdoors. The summers are warm but not too hot with plenty of sunshine. Plenty of activities are available year-round, including biking trails, hiking paths and even whale-watching tours.

To make sure you don’t miss out on any fun while staying at your Maine RV rental park, ask about amenities such as golf courses nearby or even water parks if your kids want fun activities too.

10. Sea Isle City, New Jersey

  • It’s a perfect destination for families with children. There are many activities in the area that will keep your kids entertained.
