Leave your RV at Fort Massac Campground and go enjoy the state park with the same name. It’s ideal for hiking, fishing, and picnicking, and you’ll have the most amazing views of the Ohio River. Get really relaxed or play some disc golf before checking out the history of the park at the visitor center where you can learn fascinating facts about the area. If you’re around in October, you can’t miss the annual Fort Massac Encampment Festival.Just because you happen to park your RV rental at Fort Massac every night doesn’t mean that you can’t experience and enjoy other recreation areas - the more, the merrier. Head to Shawnee National Forest for some historic sites, scenic drives, and excellent hiking. Go climbing, explore the dunes, or try to spot the wildlife that’s hiding just out of sight. You can also walk and learn more about the Trail of Tears, where you’ll literally be walking on history. There are also springs, natural bridges, and viewpoints here.Now it’s time to cross a state line or two; it’s the only way to get to Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. And it's worth the trip: other than the two lakes and all their water activities, you’ll find the Elk & Bison Prairie, a homeplace from an 1850's farm, and a planetarium, among many other things. Look up what natural happenings will take place during your visit, such as bald eagles courting or lizard eggs hatching, and make sure to bring your binoculars so you can spot all the fantastic wildlife in this Kentucky and Tennessee area.
Cross the river with your rental RV and take a look at what the beautiful, fun, and interesting city of Paducah has to offer. If you don’t like quilting, you might as well skip to the next part, because nothing is bigger or more prevalent in Paducah than stitching those bits of fabric together. Shop for your own materials, or visit the National Quilt Museum, where you can also take part in workshops and perfect your own quilting skills.There are many more things to do in Paducah, especially for the history buff. Check out the Paducah Railroad Museum or the Historic Riverfront, and once you’ve had your fair share of history, choose between fantastic shopping (you need to take a look at the antiques) and excellent performing and visual arts. Once you’ve spent all your vacation money and the stage is cleared, go try a craft beer or some local wine before enjoying some local barbecue flavors.This and so, so much more will all be at your motorhome doorstep when you decide to book a rental RV in Metropolis, Illinois.
