It’s time to start planning for your spring break trip. That means finding a place you’ve never been before and it also means getting the RV ready for a long road trip. If you haven’t used the RV since last summer or fall, you’ll have to de-winterize it and make sure everything is still working properly.
A.C. Gilbert’s Discovery Village
Head out to Salem, Oregon to camp in the serene forests and to visit the A.C. Gilbert’s Discovery Village, a museum where children can learn in a fun way. Kids will enjoy Imagination Playground, Go Figure! And Nano among several more learning exhibits. While you’re there, visit Salem’s Riverfront Park, the historic homes that live there and tons of shopping. For more information, visit acgilbert.org and tavelsalem.com.
World Center for Birds of Prey
Find a great campground near Boise, Idaho, and then spend the time touring the city and areas around the city, including the World Center for Birds of Prey.

Silver Rapids Indoor Waterpark Resort
For a trip that’s for the young kids and the adults who are kids at heart, visit the Silver Rapids Indoor Waterpark Resort in Kellogg, Idaho.
