Travel Cross Country

My wife and I are planning an RV trip to visit family in Michigan, New York, New Hampshire and home to Arizona. Probably a 2 month trip. What is the best time weather wise. We are thinking April-May but maybe May-June might be better. And any must see places. Appreciate your input.

Hi Bruce H,
For me it would be May/June as the better of the two choices. As to what to see, can you provide the cities you'll be in?

We did it from Burbank,Ca, New Mexico, Kansas, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, Connecticut, Virginia, North & South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Missippi, Louisianna, Texas and back to Burbank, 7,600 miles September , October, November. Visited family and friends saw the fall colors throught the Adirondacks, Vermont and the East coast. Went to the East side of the Okeefenokee Swamp and down into Florida before heading back West. Great great trip and staye ahead of the cold weather.

We've done a bunch of cross country trips and a few must stops include:

- Gateway Arch in St. Louis (traveling east to west for us, this is where we are finally 'out west' or you would be 'back east'!)

- Kentucky - so much to do and something for everyone. From Land between the Lakes, to the Corvette Museum, Mammoth Caves, Bourbon Trail, etc.

- Cooperstown, NY - the baseball hall of fame just brings back so many great memories

- Ground Zero in NYC. Tough to get to for an RVer, but a pilgrimage.

- Mt. Washington in NH. Cog railway up to the top. But cold ANY month of the year!

Safe travels.

Hi from New England! Weather here in May, nice, the sun is starting to warm up - never know when the mayflies will come out. But there's also those horrible gypsy moth caterpillars which can ruin a camping trip (I know from experience). Because of the crappy winter, schools in this area aren't getting out until close to the end of June, which makes it easier for reservations at places.

Having grown up in Michigan, I would wait until May/June. By thin the weather will have warmed up and the chance of running into snow is somewhat diminished (LOL). Seriously I have run through snow in the midwest in April and May, sometimes old man winter doesn't want to give up....

Thanks for all of your input. I think May-June is the time of year. Looks like a lot to see in the good ole USA.
