Year-round Georgia RV Adventure Travel Ideas

May 16, 2008
Whether the sun is shining, leaves are falling, or icicles are glistening, there's an exciting RV trip to be had. Jaunts to the beach are fairly standard, but new RV and travel trailer enthusiasts often miss out on some unique adventures that are only possible during other times of the year.

Georgia RV dealers are a good place to start when you're on the hunt for new destinations with your RV or travel trailer. They're likely RV owners themselves, and reap the benefits of information other customers have shared. One of the first short-distance trips many local RV dealers suggest is Red Top Mountain at Lake Allatoona.

Part of Georgia's state park system, Red Top Mountain is a perfect destination almost year-round. Visitors can enjoy swimming, boating and fishing in the 12,000 acre lake, or can take to the trails for hiking or biking. In the colder months, the park offers themed activities on some weekends, like Harvest at the Homestead, or Christmas at the Cabin. Interesting near-by attractions include the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History, as well as the Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site.

If you're feeling lucky, head to Dahlonega during the third weekend in October for the world famous Gold Rush Days. Thousands hit the small town to see the deep fall colors at their peak and celebrate Dahlonega's discovery of gold in 1828. If the gold panning contest doesn't call to you, there are plenty of other things to do: stroll the 300 booths set up by artists and craftsmen, check out the parade, listen to some old fashioned hog-calling, or even watch a fashion show. With live entertainment and delicious food, Gold Rush Days in Dahlonega are an excellent RV and travel trailer destination for the Fall.

Another Fall destination, Cloudland Canyon State Park, is said by some Georgia RV dealers to be one of the most beautiful spots in the state. The views into the Canyon are stunning, and if you're able to weather a 600-step staircase and some serious hiking, the waterfalls at the bottom are worth it. Tennis and disc golf are also available at the park, which has 73 sites for RVs or travel trailers.

Once the chilly winter months hit, a prime RV and travel trailer destination is Hilton Head Island. While most tourists associate the island with surf and sand, the winter Carnival season is also a blast. Throughout January and February, Hilton Head celebrates with live entertainment, pageants, bike tours, opera and other cultural events. If you arrive in February, you'll also be able to take part in the Gullah Celebration and learn more about the unique lifestyle and language of those descended from West African slaves in the region.

If you're thinking about a trip over Labor Day weekend, talk with your RV dealer about some of the options--there are many. One that's received rave reviews from GA RV dealers in the past is the Hot Air Balloon Festival at Callaway Gardens. The weekend starts with a balloon glow on Friday night, and the fun doesn't stop until the end of the weekend. Between balloon launches, there's entertainment, demonstrations, and activities for kids and grown-ups (rock climbing, anyone?).

Grab the kids, pack up that RV, and hit the road. With all the year-round adventure RV opportunities in and around Georgia, there's no reason to wait until next summer!
