Places to Go in 2017 

Ever wonder what awesome and exciting adventure you can take your Lance Camper on next? If you have been itching for a road trip but aren’t sure where to go, check out this list of top places to visit in the United States. Some of them are national landmarks and others are just well-known historical areas.

We will start this list with Yellowstone National Park. This park started the entire National Park system, so it would only be natural to visit this at least once. This is also the home of Old Faithful, the geyser that erupts almost every 90 minutes. From wildlife to the stunning geography of the area, there is something to be enjoyed by the entire family. Twelve campgrounds adorn the area surrounding this amazing park.

The Grand Canyon has always been a favorite. If you have never been, you must set aside time to go. The canyon spans 277 miles long and is almost 18 miles wide. This astounding chasm was formed by the Colorado River, which flows through the area. There are campgrounds located on both rims of the Canyon, but the Mather Campground on the south rim is the one open all year.

Tree lovers unite at the Redwood National Park. This is the best place to see the tallest trees on earth. Not only are there miles of gorgeous redwoods, there are rolling prairies and almost 40 miles of coastline. There are several campgrounds around the area to choose from.

Crater Lake National Park is a one-of-a-kind place with an extremely deep, pure lake, mountainous cliffs, and a vicious volcanic past. Nowhere else on earth will you be able to see the wondrous beauty that Crater Lake offers. There are two campgrounds near the park. The Mazama Campground is only open from June until September.

Williamsburg, Virginia, is the home of the colonial past. This area spans more than 300 acres and is dotted by numerous houses and shops dated from the 1700s. Take a stroll through what looks like an 18th century town while exploring buildings which are still open to the public. This is well worth the drive no matter where you are coming from.

There are many more wonderful and mesmerizing places to take your Lance truck camper or travel trailer, but you can begin your year’s journey with one, or more, of these iconic destinations.
