Where to Spend New Year in an RV
New Year’s Eve is all about reflecting on the year past, looking forward to the year ahead, and celebrating with those closest to you, and there is no better way to do all of those things than with an RV New Year! New Year camping can be a great way to spend quality time with some of the people you care about most, and a New Year trip is the perfect way to put an exclamation point on the year gone by – whether incredible or challenging. As the leading provider of Orange County RV rentals, 1st Choice RV is here to provide New Year vacation deals and New Year camping tips and offer some of the best places to travel for New Year. There truly is something special about getting away with friends and family and celebrating the New Year at your own pace. Below are four favorite places to take Orange County rentals on New Year camping adventures.
Las Vegas, Nevada
If your ideal RV New Year involves a big party, point those Orange County rentals four hours to the Northeast and head to Sin City. Each year, Las Vegas goes big for New Year’s Eve, making it the perfect destination for New Year’s travel. Whether your New Year trip is with friends or family, Las Vegas has something for everyone. Museums, arcades, rollercoasters, and games are perfect for kids, and, of course, there is no shortage of entertainment for grownups in this adult playground. There are also plenty of campgrounds for your RV rental, both near the exciting downtown and in some of the breathtaking natural area that surrounds Sin City.
Big Bear Lake, California
For a touch of winter in California during your New Year camping adventure, head to Big Bear Lake – just two hours east of Los Angeles. Big Bear Lake is home to Southern California’s best ski area and is the perfect place to park your Orange County RV rentals to enjoy a winter wonderland. New Year’s celebrations at Big Bear Lake include a skier/snowboarder-led torchlight parade down the mountain, live music, fireworks, and parties all over town. During the day, you can ski, tube, ice skate, and enjoy all that winter offers. Like Vegas, it doesn’t matter who you are traveling with – Big Bear has something for everyone, and there is a small selection of places to park your RV rental.
California is full of quieter options for New Year camping spots, and one of our favorites is Pas Robles, just 3.5 hours northwest of LA. This quiet little escape is in the heart of the coastal mountains with incredible access to the mountains, beaches, and deserts of this beautiful part of the state. If you are looking for nice weather and a quiet escape for your New Year trip, you will be hard-pressed to find somewhere nicer than Paso Robles. There is a ton to explore for kids and adults alike, and the latter will find particular enjoyment in its proximity to some of California’s finest vineyards.
Joshua Tree National Park
If a proper escape and New Year camping experience is what you seek, take your Orange County RV rentals to one of California’s most spectacular natural spaces – Joshua Tree National Park. You can harness solitude with your traveling companions and enjoy a quiet New Year around the fire or stop into the town of Joshua Tree or Twentynine Palms to nose into some smaller local festivities. With plenty of campgrounds and minimal cell/internet service, the real allure of a New Year’s in Joshua Tree is the ability to unplug and escape the world you left behind with those you care about most.
New Year’s is just around the corner, and our team at 1st Choice RV wants to be the first to wish you a very Happy New Year and 2023 full of brand-new adventures. Whether that be with Orange County rentals or a journey all your own, here’s to a safe, exciting, transformative, and adventurous year ahead!
