If you view the other Cross Country pages you will see that we normally take the month of August off to travel. Unfortunately, for this summer trip, we had less time to be on the road. Even though we had less time out RV trip to Nashville was still an enjoyable vacation.

When planning this trip we decided to stay east of the Mississippi. Fortunately, we were still able to visit two new National Parks and one National Historic Site.

The National Parks

Part of our mission with the website is to help others get out and CAMP, EXPLORE the world around them and help PROTECT the environment. We do this by sharing our National Park camping tips, exploring the parks ourselves, and then passing on what we have learned. This RV trip to Nashville was no different. 

In addition to Nashville, this trip included stops at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, New River Gorge National Park, and the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park.

A great way to learn, for free, while visiting the National Parks is to participate in the Jr. Ranger program. This is a great program that helps visitors of all ages learn.

Memorable Stops Along Our Rv Trip to Nashville

Rv travel is about more than just traveling from one point to another. In our opinion, it is about all the unique, and memorable things you come across as you travel the country. This trip includes memorable moments such as: 

Visiting Tennessee and Virginia, at the same time.  

Standing  6,643 feet on the highest point in Tennessee

White Water Rafting in West Virginia 

Eating BBQ, and Listening to Live Music in Downtown Nashville


This trip was shorter than our other trips due to a number of reasons. Our life this summer was a little busier than past summers. In addition, we left for home a few days early. This was due to a hurricane predicted to hit our hometown. 

We hope this page will help if you are planning a trip to Nashville, or the Great Smoky Mountains, or the New River Gorge N.P. 

Our goal is to help others get outside, travel, and learn as much as possible. You may not be planning the same trip, but we hope to be able to help a little with the trip you are planning.
