We live in the Central Valley of California. Lots of agriculture on the valley floor and three national parks only a short distance away. They would be Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon. Then only a short distance, less than two hours to the coastline. Great to be so close to all of this and still live in what is affordable California.

So I'll start, and I'll call my neck of the woods the New Mexico Area:

NEW MEXICO AREA
  • Balloon Fiesta
  • Santa Fe / Taos culture
  • Bosque del Apache (fall, winter, spring)
  • Native America: Current stuff (e.g., the Pow-Wow)
  • Native America: Historical, pueblos, etc.
  • White Sands and Carlsbad Caverns
That's all I can think of at the moment that really brings people with RVs into the area (though I'm almost certain to have forgotten something!). What about your area?

Don't forget the aliens! Roswell is good for about an hour for those with a sense of humor!

One of our favorite areas to visit. When we recently located down to the Palm Springs area, we first considered Buellton-Santa Maria area. All things being equal (and they never are) we'd probably have preferred to be there. But....as you said....it's gonna cost ya!

Here in Wyoming we've got the obvious ones. Everyone on the forum is familiar with Yellowstone and the Tetons. Then there's Devils Tower, Bighorn Mountains, the Snowy Range, Absoroka Wilderness, Chief Joseph Highway, Beartooth Pass, Flaming Gorge, Wind River, Sinks Canyon and some pretty good State parks.

Many people come here for hunting, fishing, camping, horse riding, hiking, ATV riding, and snowmobile riding. Cheyenne Frontier Days is always a big draw in July. There's great rock and mountain climbing, skiing, and rafting.

Just over the border to the north there's the Custer Battle Field, and to the east the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore.

That's just a few off the top of my head. I'm sure there's many more.

All in all, not too bad of a location.

I built Devil's Tower once out of mashed potatoes on a paper plate! Does that count? Ed (ET)

It only counts if you included the landing strip on the back side.

An interesting note about that. I believe there are still some of the props from the movie on the site. As I recall, there are some of the posts used to hold the Constantina wire for the barricades near the park entry booth. Kinda cool.

Everything between Nebraska and Kansas on the east side, Wyoming to the north, Oklahoma and New Mexico to the south including Mr Eubank, Utah to the west and just a spot of Arizona on the southwest corner.

Central Oregon on the Eastern slope of the Cascades, attracts a *lot* of tourons!

o Great weather, 300+ days of sunshine a year (including today)
o Pristine 4,000' air
o An athletic vibe like no other. Many professional and Olympic athletes in a variety of sports train here - and retire here. And everyone but me is fit!
o Speaking of athletic activities:
- world class mountain biking
- hiking
- white water kayaking and rafting
- great skiing, nordic and alpine
- world class fly fishing
- great golf
o Constant community activities and events: music festivals, beerfests (lots of beerfests!), street fairs
o 21 micro-breweries
o Great restaurants
o Ponderosa Pine forests
o Crater Lake

And probably a number of things I've forgotten.

But I'm heading to the Great Southwest in January. Winters aren't deep here, but they're wide. Shorter growing season than Moscow. Summer and Fall are hard to beat though.
