According to Kevin Broom, director of media relations for the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), an estimated 750,000 to one million retirees call RVs home. And their numbers are steadily increasing. These adventurous individuals are making the most of their golden years, touring the country. And, if you belong to this age group, now is the perfect time to invest in a motor home and become a part of this community. With summer fast approaching, you’re bound to find lots of used luxury motor homes for sale at reduced prices. Choose the perfect vehicle for your lifestyle and spend your retirement years zipping from one location to the other, visiting your loved ones and experiencing nature. We’ve compiled a list of some of the country’s best tourist attractions that you cannot afford to miss.

1. Yosemite National Park

National parks are a perennial favorite of retirees. Most of them have dedicated campgrounds, which increases their popularity among the RV crowd. And Yosemite National Park in northern California is perhaps the most well-known of them all. Visit this national treasure and discover the majestic beauty of the High Sierra. Replenish your mind, rejuvenate your body, and revive your soul, exploring the open meadows and deep valleys, waterfalls, and the local wildlife. There are 10 campsites at Yosemite that accommodate RVs of varying lengths. However, campgrounds require reservations, and it’s hard to find a spot from around April through September. So, if you plan on visiting this tourist destination, make a reservation at the earliest.

2. Brevard County

The 10th largest county in Florida, Brevard is a haven for retirees interested in a little peace and quiet. Aside from the pleasant weather, you will come across lots of good pet parks in the area. So, RV-ers traveling with their pets will especially enjoy this spot. Other major attractions in the vicinity include the Brevard Zoo and the Kennedy Space Center. And if you plan on staying here for a few days, reserve a spot at the Willow Lakes RV Resort in Titusville and find out what it’s like spending time in an RV lot with a view of the nine-hole executive golf course or lake. There is a clubhouse along with kayaking and boating options.

3. Victoria Palms Resort

Declared Park of the Year in 2012 by the Texas Recreational Vehicle Association, this 55+ resort in Donna, Texas, is a gated community with lots of amenities. If you want a taste of the good life, you must spend at least a couple of days at this resort. Right from the moment you pull up at the entrance in your vehicle, you will be treated like royalty. At the entrance of this gated community, you will be received by an attendant. Dig into sumptuous cuisine at the restaurant, or cut a rug in the ballroom. There is also a craft room and computer room. Other attractions include the nearby Don-Wes flea market and the South Padre Island.

4. Lake George

Hidden deep in the Adirondacks in northeastern New York is Lake George, a little-known gem with a rich heritage and character. Go kayaking down the Schroon River, or indulge in a bit of art and culture at the Courthouse Gallery. End your day with a bang by attending the Thursday night fireworks show at Shepard Park. And if you wish to feel like a kid again, there is always the Six Flags amusement park, a mini-golf course, and a mine tour nearby.

Never miss out on the opportunity to invest in a used luxury motor home put up for sale by the owner if you wish to avoid a sedentary lifestyle during your retirement years. But make sure you find a good deal first. Chalk out a detailed travel plan, and zip through the country in your RV, visiting some of the best sights America has to offer.
