Favorite RV trip?

We need some direction in figuring out where we want to go. We keep looking at stuff but nothing is "speaking" to us! So, I ask you, what is your favorite rv trip that meets (or nearly meets the specifications below)?

1. We have 9-11 days
2. Would like it to be within 8-10 hours of either Memphis, TN or Kansas City, MO
3. Not located in the Southeast
4. Good for Spring travel (late April)

One of our favorite trips was traveling up through PA and spending time in Amish country and then heading upstate NY

Bourbon Trail in KY? Or any of the wine trails in the areas around that. Southern Illinois has the Shawnee Wine Trail which could be combined with this.

Nashville,TN. Look at Nashville Shores Campground. On an huge lake with many waterfront sites. Very large water park, marina, boat rentals, restaurant, and a shuttle that takes you downtown and picks you up. Plenty to see and do in Nashville.

Need more info. What are you looking for in things to do? Prefer a state/federal/county park or a private? Rig length? Kids/pets? Many on here can help, we just need to know your preferences. Where ever you go, relax and enjoy!

We like either natural scenery or cities. Prefer a state park (or similar) but will stay in a private campground if necessary. Dogs. RV is TT 30ft.

This was actually similar to our first choice but we don't have enough time to do it the way we'd want to.

Nashville is kinda, sorta on our list due to the fact that we have family there and have a (free) place to park the rv.

From Kansas City, we went to Colorado Springs. I don't know how 6000' would treat you in April, though. If you're driving out I-70, stopping at Monument Rocks for a couple of hours would be a fun thing to do. We stayed for an overnight in Goodland, KS and drove to it.

The other place that we LOVED was Moab, UT. But that's over your 8-10 hour drive @ 1,000 miles from Kansas City.

I haven't been to too many other places.
