letter from the publishers

The one thing that remains the same is that everything changes. How many times have you heard that in your life? Probably quite a few times, I know I have. It seems we can apply that adage to so many events throughout our history. Each generation looks upon the new generation with curious eyes, unsure of what lies ahead, because, after all, “We did it differently when I was young.” One thing that has never changed, though, is our desire to spend time with loved ones. The human race enjoys gathering with one another, sharing a good meal and making new memories. We assemble for just about every occasion we can imagine and have even created some new events like graduations at every level of schooling. I’ll admit, preschoolers in…

q&a do you prefer a drivable or towable rv and why?

There were some significant reasons we opted for a drivable. First, we have three big dogs, and cramming them into the backseat of a pickup wasn’t an option. We wanted our dogs to be comfortable, and, with the drivable, they’re able to lounge on a dog bed or the couch during travel. Another priority for us was having access to our bathroom and kitchen. It’s reassuring to know that when nature calls, you can answer without missing a beat. In any rig, but notably a big rig, detouring from the interstate can be stressful and must always be well planned-out beforehand. Choosing a random exit in search of a gas station with a decent restroom will cause a delay and create tension for us and the dogs (who are completely relaxed…

valley of fire state park nevada

RV travelers who love the color, beauty and easy accessibility of the desert Southwest, but want to avoid the crushing crowds of well-known destinations like Zion National Park or the Grand Canyon, have another great option: Valley of Fire State Park in Southern Nevada. Just 48 miles from Las Vegas but a world apart, Valley of Fire is a popular day-tripper destination for its photo-worthy formations, towering rock spires, and gasp-worthy views. For the ultimate Valley of Fire experience, RV travelers can enjoy a multi-day stay inside the park at one of its two small campgrounds. Indeed, camping here is the best way to really sink into the depths of the park’s grandeur! Named for the fiery Aztec sandstone that formed from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago, the multicolored rock…

mesilla new mexico

At the foothills of the jagged Organ Mountains and surrounded by Las Cruces, New Mexico, is a small 6.7 square mile town rich in old west history. Always under attack from Apache Indians, this small town became the capital of the Confederate Army for the Arizona territories and later became the stomping grounds for many of the Lincoln County War figures such as Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett. Today, long gone are the days of Indian attacks and Civil War battles. What now remains is a charming southwestern town dotted with small businesses, adobe buildings and a town plaza decorated with hanging red chilies. The lure of small shops and the gun-slinging history draws tourists from afar to visit the small town of Mesilla, New Mexico. If you have any…

beaches, kites and warm nights

The casual charm and inviting undertones of South Padre Island and neighboring Port Isabel made us New Englanders feel right at home. If you’re like us and prefer a modest place to relax with some fun and adventure mixed in, this is the spot. These two resort destinations on the southern coast of Texas are inseparable from each other and connected by the Queen Isabella Causeway. This scenic bridge makes the short drive from the mainland to island a great photo op, particularly at night when Pirate’s Landing Pier is lit up, and the historic Port Isabel Lighthouse (circa 1852) is casting its brilliant light over South Padre. At the same southerly latitude as Fort Lauderdale, SPI offers tropical weather and 70 miles of pristine national seashore similar to what you would…
