Olympic PeninsulaNorthwest Family RV Spring Break Destinations

-The Olympic Discovery Trail “ODT” stretches 130 miles from Port Townsend to the Ocean going through Sequim Bay State Park- a great place to pull in the RV for the night. Enjoy gorgeous day hikes through the rainforest, kayak through the bay, or discover the great small towns in the area.

-Take in a little culture and education without your kids complaining by visiting the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Center and the House of Myths. Catch the carving of Native American totem poles that can be found all around the area.

-Visit the Olympic National Park full of moss draped trees in the rain forest, rocky rugged yet still beautiful northwest ocean beaches, and the largest unmanaged herd of Roosevelt elk in the world or one of the most amazing waterfalls in the state.

-Hop on a ferry in Port Angeles with your passport and take in Victoria B.C. This iconic Canadian destination is full of history and Victorian beauty that many people love.

Oregon Coast

-One of the most popular camping destinations in the northwest, check out Fort Stevens State Park 10 miles west of Astoria. Enjoy sandy beaches, a famous shipwreck, and miles of cycling and hiking trails.

-Stop by the popular town of Seaside and walk down the ocean front promenade or fly a kite in the breezy beach. Let the kids go crazy in the Funland Arcade full of hundreds of games, bumper cars, and the family fun game of Fascination.

-If you are looking for ocean front camping try the campground at Jetty Fishery Marina and RV Park in Manzanita. Take a horse ride down the beach!

-Check out the Oregon Coast Aquarium for the full experience of sea life along the Oregon Coast. Touch star fish, kiss a sea lion, shake hands with an Octopus, watch otters snack on crabs, or stand in a tunnel while sharks swim all around you.

Enjoy Some Last Snow Runs in Boise

Just 40 miles outside of Boise is Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area. Just a half hour from the action is the Boise Riverside RV Park not only close to the mountain; it is also just minutes from all the amenities in Boise.

After your snow adventure relax those muscles in the hot tub or take a swim at Roystone Hot Springs, just 40 minutes north of the city and fed by natural mountain springs.

There are beautiful and unique locations all around us here in the northwest and spring break is a wonderful time to discover new northwest gems. Don’t have an RV? Rent an RV near Seattle at Northwest Adventure Rentals.
