Smile Where are your little treasure spots

DH and I are first time RVers. We will take delivery of our Palomino Columbus 5er this week. We would like to go somewhere the middle of this month and get out of the freezing cold in Wisconsin. We enjoy nature, hiking, historical sites interesting museums, etc. so I'm looking for some place to go where it will be warm and enjoy some activities other than those in the park itself. For instance, my brother recently retired near Tucson Arizona. When we visited with him we went to the desert Museum, Sabino Canyon, and the biosphere 2. In that same trip we visited hanging Lake near Glenwood Springs and hiked the path up to the lake. Also enjoyed driving the California coastline from San Francisco to San Diego. So for us these places are all little treasures that I didn't know about before we got there. So again I'm looking for all the treasured places out there that will be relatively warm to visit. And warm is a relative term. We are living here in the polar vortex where it's really cold. We wouldn't mind someplace nice with the daily temperatures at least in the 50s.

It will be impossible to find any RV parks near NOLA for Madi Gras this year (there is always next.) Although Madi Gras is fun, it's super crowded,lot's of drunks and very expensive. I personally find St. Patricks day celebrations to be a better bet. The costs to park are way down, the parades are not as crowded but super fun, seems more like a locals only event.

Mardi Gras in Mobile is more fun, and less drunkenness...although there is some. More family oriented. Mardi Gras originated in Mobile, by the way.

But we prefer Disney's Fort Wilderness. In Central Florida, you have access to the activities at Disney, Universal, Sea World, nearby Atlantic Ocean and the Space Coast, as well as the nearby Gulf Coast. Also Tampa, Miami, etc.
