Savannah is a coastal city located in the state of Georgia. It is one of the hidden gems of the Deep South as it is home to a unique southern charm and has a lot of places that tourists visit every year no matter what the season. It is a place steeped in history and also a great starting point for a southern road trip from one end to the next.
Corpus Christi is a Texas coastal town that has miles of beaches and one of the best places to visit along the Gulf Coast. If you want to start from the Atlantic coast and end in the Gulf, there is no better road trip that will last you seven days in an RV than one that takes you from Savannah to Corpus Christi. Let’s saddle up and begin this road trip west!
The Waving Girl statue might be doing the exact opposite for you as you are leaving Savannah. She might be waving goodbye to you and wishing you good luck on your journey. The Waving Girl statue was built as a way to greet ships that were passing through Savannah. Many boats would stop in Savannah before heading to their destination, wherever they might be going.
There are plenty of RV parks and campgrounds that are scattered throughout Savannah and the surrounding area. Before you leave, you might want to rest up a bit at one of them. Since Interstate 16 will be a major route during your road trip, the Biltmore RV Park that is located just off the Interstate might be a good place to get set up for a night of settling in.
As you venture through Western Georgia, you’ll end up in Warners Robin. Just outside of the city is the Museum of Aviation. The museum is located near Robins Air Force Base. The museum has plenty of exhibits and artifacts that pertain to America’s military might in the air. You might even get to meet one of the veterans who flew in dangerous missions during wartime in America. Why watch a documentary or read a book when you can hear real stories from the people who have flown on these big birds while defending America?
Thankfully, Warner Robins has RV parks and campgrounds in the city. The Robins RV Park that is located west of the downtown area is a good place to call it a day and rest. Plus, it has a good number of spaces where you can set up regardless of the size of your rig.
Just as you are leaving the Peach State, what better way to say goodby to Georgia than take a trip to the Lunch Box Museum? Who knows? You might find a replica of the very same lunchbox that you had in grade school. Some of the artifacts are rare limited edition lunchboxes. You might feel like a kid all over again when you visit this place. Plus, you might tell your kids which lunchbox you had when you were in school.
After spending the day at the museum and grabbing a bite to eat in Columbus, you can cross into the Alabama state line and go a little farther on US Route 280. Not far from the road is Sawyer’s Mobile Home and RV Park. This will have all kinds of space that will fit your RV. And you won’t be too far from any restaurants or stores where you can grab a few needed essentials that you are running short on. Stock up, hit the road, and let’s head to our next stop.
Driving through Interstate 85 you’ll come across the Tuskegee National Forest. This is the smallest national forest in the United States with about 10,000 plus acres of coverage. If hiking, biking, or walking among other activities is what you are looking to do then you’ll probably love this place. Sure, it’s a small national forest but you have plenty of ground to cover if you’re up for some exploring.
If you are looking to spend the night, there are some RV parks just outside of the national forest grounds. Some of them will be located in the nearby city of Auburn. One of those RV parks that are highly recommended is the University Station RV Resort. During the late summer to early fall, it might be teeming with football fans cheering on their Auburn University Tigers. If you are a fan of college football, you might want to catch a game if they’re playing at home.
If you are a fan of literature or if you’ve read “The Great Gatsby” a few times, you've probably heard of F. Scott Fitzgerald. This museum is located inside a house that once belonged to the novelist and his wife Zelda. The house was slated to be torn down almost thirty years ago, but locals stepped in to save it and it was soon considered a historical landmark. This home represents the work of both F. Scott and Zelda, who was known for her love for painting (and she herself wrote a novel).
If you are looking for an RV Park that isn’t too far out of the way, consider yourself lucky. The Montgomery South RV Park and Cabins are located just off of Interstate 65 south of the capital city of Alabama. You get plenty of hook-ups and amenities including free WiFi. You can use that to keep your friends and other family members up to date with how the road trip is going. Plus, it’s conveniently located on I-65, which you will be hopping on anyway to continue your next part of the trip.
Now that you are heading south, you’ll see the Gulf Coast. At this point, you know that this part of the journey is almost over. But first, you’ll be stopping in the city of Mobile where the USS Alabama Museum and Memorial will be. The USS Alabama was a warship that fought in both the Atlantic and the Pacific during the Second World War. And it is a place where you can learn about the battles and the history of the ship. It had protected allied ships in the Atlantic and fought with the Japanese for the other half of the war. Since 1962, the ship was docked in Mobile and still serves as a floating museum and memorial to those who gave their lives in the war.
If you are planning on posting up in Mobile for the rest of the day, the Shady Acres RV and Campgrounds might be a good place to set up shop. You’ll be near a state park where there are plenty of activities you can do outdoors. Plus, you won’t be far from a few awesome places where you can have dinner.
If you’re taking the whole family with you, then you might want to consider spending the day at the Gulf Islands Waterpark located outside of Gulfport, Mississippi. You can take this as a day off from the road so you can enjoy all kinds of waterslides, pools, and so much more. If you truly are a kid at heart, this is the place to be. Not only that, but you can also relax at one of the poolside cabanas while the kids slip, slide, and dive.
The Bay Berry RV Park is not far from the Gulf Islands Waterpark. So you can park your RV there and take a bit of a walk. It’s actually not that far. That way, you won’t have to go too far in order to find the best places to eat and have fun. Talk about convenience.
Houston, we’re almost there! If you are in the largest city in Texas, there is no way you want to miss the opportunity of checking out the Space Center. You will be able to check out the Science and Space Exploration Learning Center where you’ll be able to learn everything you need to know about space exploration. With hundreds of hands-on activities and exhibits to see, you will be fascinated by the wonders of what the U.S. Space Program has done over the course of its history.
Since you’ll be on Interstate 69 towards Corpus Christi, you might want to find an RV Park that is just off of the road near the city. If you fancy yourself as someone who likes to fish, the Lakeview RV Resort might be a good place to set up and do some fishing before the day is through. Plus, it has plenty of space for an RV like yours regardless of size.
You are finally in Corpus Christi! After a seven day trip, you can rest and relax at the beaches. And you can also enjoy some of the best seafood that the Texas coast has to offer. You can swim, surf, and explore the city with your family.
If you are looking for an RV Park in the city, you’re in luck. Most of them are located near the water. What a great way to set up for a night or two and wake up to see some beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico. It would be like having your own waterfront property.
