With state park campgrounds closing in many states and the federal government encouraging people not to travel, we figured we’d put together a list of things you can do to get outdoors or at least dream about it while helping our society get through these difficult times.
Take a virtual tour of one of 31 national parks on Google Earth.
Camp in your backyard or driveway.
Take a hike in your local area. Remember that restrooms and visitor centers may be closed.
Join the America’s National Parks Facebook Group to chat about parks and see dozens of beautiful photos a day. Or join the See America group for American travel destinations, and the RV Miles group for RV travel advice.
Practice your trailer driving skills with the RV & Boat Towing Parking Simulator app.
Tour RVs on YouTube. Leisure Travel Van salesman Dean is our favorite. This guy could sell you oceanfront property in Arizona.
Plan a future road trip on Roadtrippers. Use our discount code rvmiles917x for 20% off Roadtrippers Plus.
Break out the Blackstone griddle, Instant Pot, or build a campfire in your backyard to perfect your campground meals.
Take a virtual hike with Luke on the Outdoor Gear Review YouTube channel
Get a Disney Plus account and check out all the cool National Geographic content. We enjoyed the documentary “Into the Grand Canyon.”
Take a scenic drive within a few hours of your community.
