A new year will be here before you know it, you may have already made a list of resolutions that are sure to be broken by the third week of February. There is nothing wrong with bettering yourself by resolving to eat healthier foods or to drink less alcoholic beverages, but you don’t need a new year’s resolution to do so. All you need is the will to be a healthier person and this can happen anytime during the year.

If you are going to make a resolution for the new year, make it something that is fun and that you would really enjoy. For example, you should resolve to travel to all 50 states.

Not all at once, of course, you want to hit a few states at a time over the course of several years. This way, you can renew your resolution each January and have something to look forward to in the new year.

Now, with the exception of Hawaii, the best way to travel to each state would be by car or truck pulling a rented RV from Campers4Rent.com, your Dallas RV rental specialists. This way, you can enjoy the scenic view road trips offer and keep a schedule based on your needs and what you want to do and when you want to do it.

From coast to coast and everything in between, there are literally thousands of things you can do in each of the states. However, you don’t have unlimited vacation time so you can pick one thing to do or see in each state. To make things easier for you, we have compiled a list of the best thing you should do or see in each state.


Do you have a little astronaut in you? If so, pay a visit to the United States Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville. This is a wonderful museum that offers an extensive collection of spacecraft, space artifacts and there is even a space simulator you can test out.

If you have enough time, you can even sign up for their Adult Space Academy where they train you to be an astronaut. For two days you get to learn the history of space flight, launch model rockets and train in a space simulator.


When you hit the Centennial state, you want it to be in the winter so you can get in a little skiing. So make sure you have your winter gear and skis in your RV and head to Telluride.

If you are in Colorado in the spring or summer, head to Telluride anyway as they host cool festivals year-round including the Telluride Blues Festival in September.


Besides the Arizona Diamondbacks, what is the main attraction in the state of Arizona? Anybody? Bueller? Anybody? Why it’s the Grand Canyon of course. If you had paid attention in school you would have got this answered correctly.

Anyway, it makes perfect sense to visit the Grand Canyon while you are in Arizona. If you have the time, visit the North Rim as it is more secluded. Make sure you take plenty of pictures to show everybody back at home.


No road trip should be without a visit to Alaska, it’s a move you will not regret. When you get to Alaska, the best attraction are the Northern Lights. The area just outside Fairbanks is as good a place as any to see the Northern Lights. Your best shot at experiencing the Aurora Borealis is on a clear night far away from the lights of the city.


When you find yourself in Arkansas, search for diamonds at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro. If you get lucky, you just might leave this beautiful state with a few diamonds of your very own.


When you are in Connecticut, you really need to experience how we traveled 100 years ago by riding on a train and taking a ride on a steamboat. The Connecticut River Valley offers both rides on their two-part tour that includes beautiful scenery and perhaps even the opportunity to spot a bald eagle.

We are going to stop here, but check back soon as we will continue this list. In the meantime, head to Campers4Rent.com and choose which RV you want to rent for your trip.
