We heard about this quirky little museum that showcased classic RVs that had been rehabbed. We thought it would be one of those road side attraction places but it ended up being a great museum. It was a private collection of rvs dating back many generations.

During mid-road-trip polling of passengers on this trip, we learned that the hotel pool ranked up there with the most exciting attractions and land formations, so this has become a priority for us, as a great way to get out some energy and unwind, especially after a long day in the car.
