Dreaming of an RV Winter Getaway

One of the best things about RV living is the freedom to follow the sun. When it’s cold outside, it’s fun to think about a winter RV getaway.

As a holiday gift, we’ve put together a list of lovely places to park your adventure vehicle if you’re seeking warm weather during the colder months. So now we offer them to you, in no particular order.

In addition, we’re including the best pictures we could find. So sit back, take in these photos and dream of your next great escape.


Winter Getaway #1

Scottsdale, Arizona

Scottsdale is part of the Phoenix metropolitan area. But it has some of the charms of a small town. Enjoy the arts district, casinos, golf courses, and access to the Mayo Clinic. There are nearly a half-dozen RV parks in Scottsdale alone. If you stay until spring, you can watch the San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies, and Arizona Diamondbacks spring training.

San Diego

All the conveniences of a big city, but with the feel of a laid-back beach town, San Diego is a wonderful place to winter. The temperature hovers between 70 and 80 degrees all winter. Also, this city is full of fine restaurants, wineries, and breweries. And there are more than a dozen medical centers in San Diego and the surrounding communities. There are about two dozen RV parks in and around the city, some close to attractions like Sea World and Legoland. By the way, don’t miss out on the world-famous San Diego Zoo.
