posted in: North America  |  posted by: Jennifer Gregory on July 21, 2008  |  9 Comments

So many American families dream of hitting the road for a family vacation. One of the best ways to optimize your vacation budget and time is to travel via RV. An RV gives families the flexibility to go where they want, when they want, with little regard to budget and without a need for strict planning. Some of the most beautiful places in North America can be reached by RV travelers and the destinations are well worth the drive!

10. Madison Arm Resort, Montana

Yellowstone Park

Located in West Yellowstone, Montana, Madison Arm Resort is a mere 8 miles outside of Yellowstone National Park, making it easily accessible for visitors who don’t wish to camp or stay within the park’s sometimes crowded borders. Be sure to stroll by Lake Hegben for fishing, swimming, and site seeing in between trips to the national park itself!

9. Squaw Flat Campground, Utah

    Hi there, Will you be publishing a follow up write-up? My husband and me have used some time looking over your site and surprisingly enough you highlighted one thing i was talking about only the other day with our neighbour. We quite often notice ourselves quarrelling about the smallest of things, isn’t it foolish?
