The east coast of America is an exciting part of the country to visit, with so much to offer every traveler. Steeped in history, and full of stunning scenery, the east coast is the ideal vacation destination.
According to Outdoorsy, an RV rental marketplace, anyone traveling to the east coast should spend at least 1-2 days visiting each destination, as there is usually so much to do.
But what are the best places to visit on America’s east coast? We’re going to take a look at that now:
Acadia National Park, Maine
Acadia National Park is thought to be something of a hidden gem. Found on the Maine coastline, the Park has been open for 100 years and is home to a wide variety of ecosystems and terrain.
Covering more than 47,000 acres, and with multiple islands, Acadia Park is home to the tallest mountain on America’s Atlantic coast, and incredible scenery.
Sit on the rocks by the sea, and listen to the sound of the waves crashing against the shore. Alternatively, hire a bicycle and ride the historic roads, and experience all that this incredibly beautiful national park has to offer.
Ellis Island, New York
Take a trip to Ellis Island, New York, and visit America’s most important gateway, where more than 12 million immigrants passed through between 1892 and 1924.
A trip to Ellis Island would not be complete without visiting the Immigration museum that brings the museums collection to life.
Once you’ve made your way around the museum, hop aboard the boat that takes you on to Liberty Island, and get a closer look at the Statue of Liberty that began to welcome millions of immigrants to the United States more than 100 years ago.
Shenandoah Caverns, Virginia
Shenandoah Caverns can be found deep underground in Quicksburg Virginia, and are a sight to behold.
Welcoming visitors for more than 90 years, the caverns are home to crystalline formations, amazing geology, and an underground tour that will take an hour to complete.
Discovered in 1884, and with a year-round temperature of 54 Fahrenheit, the Shenandoah Caverns make the ideal destination if you love a bit of history, or you simply enjoy exploring the earth’s natural wonders.
The Florida Everglades, Florida
The Florida Everglades is one of the east coasts most stunning landscapes. Established in 1947, and spanning an impressive 1,542,526 acres, the Everglades National Park has something for everyone.
Home to 40 species of mammals, more than 300 species of fish, and 50 reptile species, in addition to manatees, panthers, and crocodiles, the Everglades will help to make your vacation one to remember.
Go hiking, canoeing, take a tram or boat tour, or enjoy a spot of camping, before taking a peaceful stroll around the boardwalk trails so you can enjoy the Everglades’ sights and sounds at your own pace.
The east coast has so much to offer, from stunning national parks to incredible museums, underground caverns, and stunning landscapes. If you would like to have an unforgettable vacation, head to America’s east coast, and experience all that it has to offer.
