North Carolina Communities That Make RV Travel Easy

These communities in North Carolina provide RV parking, making it easier for active adults to hit the road whenever they want.

An RV has always been a convenient way to hit the open road and explore all the U.S. has to offer. In recent years, there’s been a resurgence of travelers who are opting to pack up an RV and drive to their favorite destination instead of flying and staying at a hotel.

For active adults who prefer this method of travel, it can be hard to find a community that has additional space for residents to safely park their RVs. However, North Carolina has several active adult communities that offer a designated area for homeowners to park their RVs when they aren’t in use.

Here are six North Carolina communities that make RV travel easy.
