letter from the publishers

With 2020 behind us, I think we are all breathing a sigh of relief. Let’s all agree, it was an interesting year. But, like so many others, we found the silver lining and a lot of great things happened in 2020, both personally and with the magazine. One of the largest notables of 2020 was the launching of RV Destinations Magazine. You all welcomed us graciously to the RV travel marketplace and we continue to grow in subscribers and followers. We can’t thank you enough! We listened to our readers and have made changes to our graphic design process, making it easier to see lettering and to read the magazine. We expanded access to RVD through the App Store, Google Play and MagsFast app. We also started offering a basic…

Gulf Waters Beach Front RV Resort in the winter. Very nice beachfront campground in Port Aransas, Texas. Across the boardwalk is about 20 miles of beach. It’s south of town, so the beach isn’t too busy. You can also drive your car over there. It’s my favorite winter-time spot. —S. Martin, Harrah, OK Summit RV Resort in New Braunfels, Texas. The sites are roomy, and the amenities are superb with river access for floating. Nice place and great owners. —J. Free, Harker Heights, TX Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort and Marina. —Karen E., Augusta, GA Henrys Lake State Park in Island Park Idaho is a highly affordable waterfront location.

legends of niagara falls mist. lights & caves

NIAGARA FALLS NEW YORK | ONTARIO With 750,000 gallons of water plunging over the three separate falls every second, it’s easy to see why Niagara Falls has been such an attraction and is one of the seven wonders of the world. It’s not the tallest in the world, or even in New York, but one look makes it obvious why millions of people flock here every year to witness the breathtaking beauty and splendor. You can easily take an entire day to marvel at just the falls, so a week or more will allow you to fit in everything there is to do and experience with all your senses. There are two cities named Niagara Falls, both of which lie on either side of the border shared with the United States and…

aliens and ufo’s welcome

Do aliens really exist? If you ask the residents of Roswell, New Mexico, you certainly might think they do. This mid-sized city of about 50,000 residents made national news in 1947, when the Roswell Army Air Field put out a press release to the Daily Record that they’d captured a flying saucer. The very next day, however, they retracted the statement and claimed it was actually nothing more than a weather balloon. From this, the greatest story in U.S. history of aliens, UFOs and government cover-up was born: The Roswell Experience. Which side of the story is true? We’ll let you decide. But we discovered that the residents of this town have fully embraced the myth that put them on the map. You must do your due diligence to determine if…

shenandoah national park rvshare

There’s something extraordinary about heading out on a road trip. You pack your luggage carefully and strategically, like a game of Tetris. Snacks are at hand; music and navigation queued up. Shoes are typically kicked off, and hopefully, one last trip to the bathroom is taken by all. Excitement for the journey is just as great as the destination itself. That’s how we see it, anyway. Hi, I’m Alexa, the Senior Content Marketing Strategist at RVshare. RVshare is the world’s first and largest peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace.

if you’re so inclined

Situated on the eastern flank of Pikes Peak in Manitou Springs, Colorado, lies the Manitou Incline: a hike that’s a staple amongst Coloradans and tourists alike. Most commonly referred to as “The Incline,” this hike is unique, challenging and guaranteed to check your fitness level. Rated as hard to extreme, the Incline gains more than 2,000 feet of elevation in just 0.88 miles by way of old railroad ties—2,744 of them. Think of it as an outdoor stair master. With an average grade of 41% (and 68% at its steepest), your heart rate is sure to spike. The summit sits at 8,590 feet above sea level and provides stunning views of Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs and the Eastern Plains. And if you start early enough, a spectacular sunrise awaits you.
