1. Get outside more

Good for your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. Nuff said.

2. Travel more 

The travel bug only has to bite once for you to catch the infectious wanderlust. You know you want to.

3. Spend less

Pinch those pennies and build that savings account. It can be done.

Campervan in the wild


Rent RVs, Camper Vans, and Trailers

Road-tripping is one of the most favored ways to get outside and see a bunch of places in one trip. Visit a nature center in the morning, hike in the afternoon, and end your day around the campfire. Sleeping in the outdoors will do wonders for your health.

Book Stays in California, Colorado, and Texas

Go Hiking

Stretch your legs, slow down time, and breathe in that sweet, sweet air that’s not as stale as an indoor office. Review the ultimate guide to hiking essentials and this guide to proper trail etiquette, then pick one of these 10 amazing hiking trails that start from your campground.

Hang Lakeside

Water-based vacations were a big draw in 2023, so let’s keep the trend going for 2024. Hot or cold weather, there’s something soothing about watching and listening to the waves. Head to one of these 5 top lake destinations, or hit the beach for a sandy stay at one of these 8 spots.

Attend a Music Festival

Blend your exquisite taste in music with a rockin’ outdoor setting. One of the perks of road-tripping to music festivals is the ability to stay on-site in the designated camping areas. That way, you don’t have to worry about having too much to drink or missing your favorite performer because of traffic.

1. San Diego, California

Year-round sunshine, taco joints on every corner, oceanside campgrounds. It’s a good time to visit San Diego any time of year for good food and a Vitamin D refill. Bring your passports and venture into Tijuana, which is slated to open a new eco-park by the end of 2024, complete with sports fields, zip lines, and bike paths.

2. Hill Country, Texas 

Known best as a destination for wine lovers, Texas Hill Country is also a land of springs, canyons, and hills ripe as wine grapes for exploring. So much so that Outdoorsy opened a glampground—a glamping campground—for those who want to experience luxury in the outdoors. Book a stay starting in December 2023. (Stay there for the total eclipse; more info below.)

3. Flagstaff, Arizona

With the Grand Canyon National Park to the north and Saguaro National Park to the south, Flagstaff is at the center of Arizona’s best outdoor attractions. Hike, bike, climb, raft, run—it’s got everything. The wildflowers bloom in spring and summer, the aspens turn gold in the fall, and winter frosts the lodgepole pine forests in fluffy snow.

4. Coastal Alaska

Alaska’s coastline is 6,640 miles long, bordering the Beaufort Sea, Chukchi Sea, Bering Sea, and Gulf of Alaska. Make your way along the scenic byways to catch the northern lights, see caribou grazing, take a dip in the teal arctic waters, and stare up in awe at the fjords. Get familiar with the Alaska Marine Highway System if you’re considering a trip.

5. Mississippi River

Follow the Mississippi River along the Great River Road National Scenic Byway to pass through tiny riverside villages and urban metropolises for one of the most diverse road trips in America. The whole thing takes about 10 days from northern Minnesota to the tip of Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico, or you could break it up into sections.

6. Vancouver, British Columbia

This bustling West Coast seaport is revered for its access to nature, from forests to mountaintops to beaches. Go whale watching, rent or bring kayaks, take a ferry, and visit the Harbour Centre Tower Lookout for panoramic views of the city and natural areas. From there, head to Squamish, Whistler, the Kootenays, and more Canadian majesties

7. Southwest Colorado

Maybe you’ve heard the hype about or experienced Colorado’s Front Range. Well, the southwestern part of the state is totally different. The little mountain communities of Telluride, Silverton, Durango, and Pagosa Springs offer views and to-dos in the San Juan Mountains. Make Outdoorsy Bayfield, with campsites and luxury tents, your basecamp for exploration.

8. Upstate New York

Leave the Big Apple for a retreat upstate. It’s really quite overwhelming just how much nature New York has to explore, like the Catskills region, the Adirondacks, and the Finger Lakes. Admire the waterfalls along the Thousand Islands-Seaway Trail, step foot on parts of the Appalachian Trail, and birdwatch at the Montezuma Wildlife Refuge.

9. Anywhere in the path of the eclipse

April 2024 is going to be a dazzling month with the total eclipse revealing the sun’s corona, a glowing crown that’s not usually visible to the human eye. Accommodations are already booking up for next spring, so hop on it. Check this NASA map to see the path of totality—major cities include Dallas, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Buffalo, Toronto, and Montreal—and then book your rental ASAP on Outdoorsy before inventory runs out.

Even when fuel costs are in flux, traveling in an RV is still a less expensive mode of travel. Financial benefits of road-tripping include: 

  • Eliminating hotel expenses; campgrounds and RV parks are cheaper
  • Saving on meals because you’re cooking rather than eating out
  • Minimizing fuel costs because RVs are more fuel efficient than flying
  • Having flexibility over your schedule and change your travel plans
  • Creating built-in entertainment that includes low-cost activities like fishing and boating
  • Reducing costs for extended travel, which can add up quickly
  • Avoiding airfare costs that are just getting more expensive
  • Removing pet boarding costs—because you can bring them with you!

These best places to travel in 2024 will help you bid goodbye to 2023, and say hello to another year of adventure! We wish you the safest and happiest travels in the new year, whether you rent, stay, or journey in your own rig.
