Publisher Comments:

20 Dream RV Vacations for All Seasons <P>How does an apple butter festival in autumnal New England sound? Or Mardi Gras in New Orleans when you're fed up with winter? How about a dazzling summer drive through Canada's Maritime Provinces, or a long lazy jaunt along the "lonely leg" of Florida's Gulf coast? Let experienced RVers Janet and Gordon Groene help turn your dreams into reality. <P>Since leaving their "regular jobs" more than a decade ago, the Groenes have taken to America's highways and backroads in their 21-foot motor home. They've made many unforgettable journeys, sharing their experiences with the rest of us in their magazine articles, columns, and popular books. Now, with "Great Eastern RV Trips," they've really outdone themselves. The book offers a delectable menu of 20 vacations from which to choose. From South Florida to Prince Edward Island, from Ohio and Illinois to Kentucky, Mississippi, and Alabama, it guides you to magnificent scenery and must-see events throughout the eastern United States and Canada. The authors have organized this guide by season, providing you with all the information you need to plan trips you've only dreamed about. They've also included maps, camping suggestions, scheduling strategies, practical RV tips, notes on offbeat attractions, references to sources of valuable information, and much more. With the help of 50 stunning photographs, the Groenes describe these and dozens of other unforgettable experiences that will appeal to RVers of every kind.

Synopsis:

Guaranteed to stir wanderlust, these 20 enticing seasonal adventures steer travelers from apple butter festivals in autumnal New England to candlelit caroling for Charistmas in Colonial Willaimsburg, and more. The Groenes, longtime, fulltime Rvers, have written a guide with the comfort, needs, and concerns of RVers in mind.
