Phoenix, AZ – Pedata RV Center urges RVers to celebrate fall by making a Fall Festival road trip. Many see the recreational vehicle as a means of summer travel, but in today’s day and age the RV is no longer delegated to the sidelines once summer comes to a close. Long time RVers and “first timers” will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy a road trip featuring fall festivals.
Pedata RV Center’s Gerard Pedata said, “For fall travel the East coast is a popular location. It’s commonly agreed that the eastern regions are able to provide the most perfect representation of the fall season. Travelers get the changing colors on the trees, the falling leaves, the breezes and, of course, the fall festivals.”
