need trip ideas

We have had a trip planned for 2-3 months starting in April of 2011. Starting in So Ca to New Orleans and on down to Key West, to the Outer Banks. If the spill does not ruin this trip we are open to all ideas.

Thanks
Mike

Myrtle beach is nice..we stayed at pirateland,but we have little kids. There is one beachfront RV right next to it called ocean lakes campground
Ocean Lakes Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, SC

I have(Jen) to Hatteras (Outer Banks) a few times. It's wonderful and secluded great for down time. This RV park looks pretty nice.
Ocean Waves Campground
Good luck and enjoy your East Coast adventure

My recommendation would be to plan a few places that you really want to see and then let the majority of the trip flow by what looks interesting in the area you are at the time. We took a four month trip around the country this way last Summer/Fall and found many surprising and interesting things we would have missed if we had a detailed plan. This country is absolutely awesome, in my opinion.

rvmike, don't let the oil spill spoil your trip. It is a great catastrophe on the gulf coast, and we all feel terrible for all the people affected, but there are lots of places to see along interstate 10 in Louisiana. When you get around Lafayette, take several side trips in cajun country. Sample the cooking, visit with the people, enjoy our culture.

We just took that trip. You'll have a ball. Kartchner Caverns State Park near Tombstone Az is a place we really enjoyed. Fort Stockton, Tx is almost a must overnight spot and we like the Fort Stockton RV Park (it used to be a KOA and has an on-site cafe called the Road Runner). Buckhorn Lake Resort in Kerrville, Tx is very nice but pricey. We stayed near downtown San Antonio at a place I think was called the "Traveller". It was cool because the bus stopped right in front and would take you downtown easily.

In New Orleans, we actually stayed right in the French Quarter at the French Quarter RV Resort. It's expensive (~$70) but you can walk to Bourbon St... walking back can be the hard part!

In Fla, near Titusville we stayed at the Great Outdoors which is remarkable. On the way we really enjoyed southern Alabama near Mobile. We belong to Escapees and got to enjoy their great parks both there and in Bushnell, Fla for only $85/week.

You got some great advice. Pick a few things you want/must do and make those the cornerstone of your trip and let the rest flow... and take time to relax too. We full time now and the Shuttle launch on 4/5 was one of those cornerstones for us.

Have fun and travel safely...

Also, if you decide to stay on the mainland rather than the Outer Banks, we loved the North River Campground in Elizibeth City. Very quiet, beautiful and nice people.
