One year in U.S. and Canada...what do you do/see?

If you had one year of full-timing and could go where you will, whenever you will, where all would you go in the U.S. and Canada? Places, times of year, etc.?

Where WOULDN'T you go because it's not worth the effort even though it may be popular?

Over the past five years we have visited 38 or 9 National Parks, of which two were in Alaska and we've visited every state you can RV to. When ever we are asked where our favorite places are that we've visited, the answer is always "Any of the National Parks"...there are NO disappointments. 'Out West' is another area of our Country that should not be missed. I've always heard, "Man made the East, but God made the West". Can't agree more. No disappointments there either. As far as when to visit, we've always let the weather that suits us determine that.

One thing for sure, I think after your year is over, you'll agree that a year is probably too short...but a year well spent. Safe journeys.

RIP 'Squeaky'

You definitely want to visit the big cities. New York, Chicago (greatest museums), New Orleans, San Francisco, San Antonio, Albuquerque. The list goes on. Put up a wall map of the US and start locating places to go. You can skip a lot of states that are just flat farmland unless you're into flat farmland there's plenty in Iowa I remember. There are RVers who write blogs. Ours is: HIT N THE ROAD All about our travels.

Do NOT "look" too fast! And do NOT miss the little gems that are just waiting to be discovered. You will miss many things if you push too hard and try to see too much. 😉😙
Here are some samples from our last 3 years:

Happy trails!

Niagara Falls - I like the Canadian side better than the US side.

Mesa Verde National Park - it's magical

Biltmore House - heart of the Smokys

Telluride, CO - you wanna see mountains?

Vicksburg National Park - hire a tour guide.

Mount Rushmore and the surrounding sites - Black Hills, SD

I like the Canadian side better as well. Walking behind the falls is kinda lame, but taking the boat to the bottom of the falls was pretty fun.
