Park you car. There are free buses (LL Bean is a big sponsor) which take you to almost everything - the exception is up Cadillac Mountain.

The schools are closed due to snow storm today in the northern UP. The weather will be an adventure even at the end of the month, but if you need adventure just check ahead as most sites are still normally closed then. But that could change as the lows are in single digits again the past week, it has to get warmer. The campgrounds will be opening throughout May usually along with parks. Fla. sounds good today

You don't want to be in the UP in April that's for sure. We have a home a mile from the UP/WI state line and the ice isn't out on our lake yet! We won't have leaves on the trees for at least 3 weeks yet. UP is great from June - Sept.

You certainly have options. We vacationed in Kentucky a few years ago and enjoyed the bourbon tours, Lexington, and Nashville, TN. If you head up to Harper's Ferry you can also go to Virginia - Charlottesville, Richmond, Fredericksburg, D.C. West Virginia is fun for camping at the state parks and white water rafting, but April might be a little too early to go rafting.

Good point. We are Floridians and forget to account for cold. Will see what the projected temps are. It's too hot here already. The heat/humidity gives me massive headaches. We are moving from FL to the PNW.

Thanks. As basically life-long Floridians, we tend to forget that it might be cold somewhere else- especially in April!

We visited Acadia and Fundy National Park (Canada) last Summer and had a great time. It's what motivated us to buy the rv.

Harpers Ferry is our second choice at this point. We want to see what the weather is up to in the UP for the dates we'll be there and then we'll decide.

A little farther than you may want to go but Moab UT would be a great choice. We were there last week. Lots of outstanding scenery & so many things to do. Weather was great & should still be good the end of Apríl
