Whether you plan to take it by motorcycle, trailer or RV, the summer road trip is a time-proven fun tradition for families, friends and individuals. With spring coming a bit early this year, folks are already starting to get a jump on planning their perfect trips, and we encourage you to do the same. After all, you’ve got to have something to look forward to through all those rainy March and April days!
A motorcycle or RV allows you to go just about anywhere on the continent, but for this hitch and tow blog in Eugene, OR, we will be focusing on slightly more manageable road trips that are great for a week with the family or even just a long weekend with friends. With that in mind, here are some fun ideas to help you get started on planning your perfect summer road trip.
When it comes to nature, Oregon has just about everything: mountains, lakes, the beach, the forest and even a crater. Speaking of craters, Crater Lake National Park is just a quick two-and-a-half hour RV ride away. If you have little ones who have yet to take in Oregon’s most iconic natural attraction, make this the summer you finally camp there.
If you have already done Crater Lake and are looking for a cool blend of nature and culture, then you might want to hop on the motorcycle and check out Bend, Oregon with some friends. This charming Central Oregon town is known for three things: Black Butte, bikes and beer. All right, there’s also the Deschutes National Forest, a burgeoning cider scene and some great local art. If you want to be roughing it by day and relaxing by night, this is the place for it.
Unless you are new to Oregon, you have probably already visited Portland several times. But one of the best things about the city is that there is always a cool new thing to check out, whether it is a hot new brewery, a new collection of charming shops and restaurants or a nearby natural attraction that you have not yet visited.
And if you have kids, they will jump at the chance to visit the old standbys: Voodoo Doughnut, Powell’s Books, the International Rose Test Garden and much more.
Tackle the coast
All right, we have saved the best for last. Everyone who lives on the West Coast has dreamed of taking an RV or motorcycle all the way up or down the coast at some point in their lives. What is stopping you from doing it this summer? If you start in Eugene, you will get a chance to appreciate the peaceful beauty of Northern California, the bustling excitement of the Bay Area, the beautiful Central California Coast, the hip Los Angeles and San Diego areas and maybe end your trip with the best tacos you’ve ever had by the Mexican border.
Whatever you choose to do with your RV or motorcycle this summer, you will need the right accessories and towing products to do it safely and efficiently. For the service and products you need, visit Ron’s Hitch N Tow today.
