For many, hitting the wide-open road in a recreational vehicle has never been more appealing than in 2022. RV excursions across the USA are the perfect way to enjoy the country’s scenic landscape from sweeping canyons to alpine forestry or white sandy beaches. Brand USA rounds up three lesser-known, bookable routes for agents to sell and travellers to explore, avoiding queues, crowds and traffic jams.
Wildlife and Wilderness Adventure, Minnesota
Known as the ‘land of a thousand lakes’, Minnesota boasts 85,000 miles of coastline, 66 state parks, 57 state forests and two national forests. From a paddlewheel cruise down the Mississippi River to driving through a 2,000-acre Wilderness Sanctuary in Itasca State Park, or watching the state’s internationally renowned eagle soar overhead from the riverside observation deck in Lanesboro, an RV adventure around Minnesota showcases the best of what the great outdoors has to offer.
American Affair is offering a Minnesota Wildlife and Wilderness Adventure from £2,679 per person based on a departure date of 13 June, 2022.

Traversing the South, Louisiana to Texas
From Cajun hospitality to a vibrant music scene, historical buildings and windswept beaches, an RV road trip across Louisiana and Texas merge the great outdoors with cultural offerings. Departing from Houston, travellers can head south towards Padre Island National Seashore, a vast protected area with beaches sheltering rare Kemp’s ridley sea turtles. Heading inland, road trippers will find the landscapes equally impressive, especially when they pull up in Abilene, a park system spanning across a total of 1,247 acres.
