Are you in the mood for an East Coast vacation? Want to experience both gorgeous nature and exciting cities? Well, then you might want to get an RV rental in Emmaus, Pennsylvania. This charming borough, located between forest, fields, and suburbia, is close to Trenton, the capital city of New Jersey, and the big city of Philadelphia isn’t far from your camper rental in Emmaus either. Even closer is the cultural city of Allentown.
You were promised some fantastic nature as well, and here it comes: Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area is also fairly close to your motorhome rental in Emmaus. More locally, you’ll find the small village of Lanark as well as the slightly larger historic city of Bethlehem, both well worth a visit. How to get there? Well, via Interstate 476, that runs through the borough, of course.
As it so happens, if you want to spend some time in the lovely outdoors, you barely have time to get into your camper rental in Emmaus before it’s time to get out again: part of Wildlands Conservancy South Mountain Preserve is situated within the borough itself. Here you can hike on miles of trails through maple and red oak forests while enjoying the flora and fauna.
Slightly farther away but still just a short ride from your RV trailer rental in Emmaus you’ll find Nockamixon State Park, where you can hike and bike through the beautiful forest, as well as go boating and try your fishing luck - you might catch some picnic food. If not, you can always play disc-golf or go swimming in the pool; there’s lots of fun to be had here.
If you don’t feel like hitting the road in your luxury RV rental from Emmaus, you can still enjoy some peaceful nature within the city itself. Rodale Nature Area is great for this; it has its own trail winding through woods and fields and passing by a small pond, and you might even spot a squirrel or two.
There are a couple of places to park your RV rental near Emmaus, and the beautiful Quakerwoods Campground is only 20 minutes' drive away. Here you’ll find full hookups (including cable), restroom and laundry facilities as well as both a playground and a horseshoe pit. When you’ve shown off your skills, you can stroll down to the picturesque little pond.
Another option is Allentown KOA, which is under 30 minutes' drive away and has full hookups as well as a swimming pool, mini golf, and a dog park. There’s also Wi-Fi, in case you’d want to tell your loved ones all about lovely Emmaus, which also happens to have several gas stations and even more grocery stores.
Park your travel trailer rental in Emmaus and have a walk around town, soaking up all the history of the place. Historic Emmaus is a cooperative effort of three historical preservation groups, each focusing on the Shelter House, 1803 House, and the Knauss Homestead, respectively. Each building is a museum displaying the evolution of Colonial architecture, and well worth some of your time.
For some equally engaging but more contemporary culture, give the amazing Community Center for the Arts a visit. The center is a place where everyone can gather and express themselves through art, and they have exhibitions, concerts, lectures, and poetry readings all year round. There are also lots of art classes if you’d like to awaken your inner Picasso, or perhaps you’re more of a Monet.
You don’t need to go to an establishment to have fun in Emmaus - you just need to be there at the right time. There are lots of events going on, especially around the holidays - the borough is famous for its Halloween Parade. And every Sunday almost all year round, there’s a farmers market where you can buy locally produced fresh produce, as well as learn about the benefits of local agriculture. You can also visit community yard sales and get some truly unique gifts to bring back home.
If all the food talk has made you hungry, there are lots of places where you can get anything from a juicy burger, a delicious pizza, or some scrumptious seafood, and, of course, you can get both hot dogs and cheesesteaks. By now you must be ready to search for an RV in Emmaus, right? Right! So pack your bags, because you’re going to Pennsylvania!
