For this year’s Spring Break, you don’t need a passport to experience incredible sights and unique culture.
For the third year in a row, RV ownership is at record highs. According to a study by Topline North American Camping Report, roughly 40 million people each year are going RV camping. Embracing the call of the wild is an American tradition that sees us going back to our roots, and doing so with those close to us. With the rise in RV road trips as alternatives to traditional vacations, it’s not surprise that in recent years, more and more cities have expanded their infrastructure to include RV campgrounds.
With that in mind, we’ve gathered six Spring Break destinations that are perfect for RVing in 2022.
Top Six Spring Break Destinations 2023
Along the western border between Arizona and California, Lake Havasu is an aquatic oasis surrounded by desert on all sides. The lake itself features sparkling blue water that stretches for 45 miles of shoreline, with hidden beaches and alcoves in many places reachable by boat or hike. As far as Spring Break destinations go, the lake is second to none in terms of watersports and a ratio of people to space.
Despite how popular the lake is for Spring Break, there’s just so much water that you’ll have plenty of quiet places to choose from if that’s what you want. On the other hand, if you’re looking to party, waterfront bars and restaurants fill to the brim during the week in March.

With islands nearby to explore and dozens of nightclubs and restaurants keeping visitors busy past sunset, it’s no surprise that Key West is one of the most popular Spring Break destinations in the US.
