RVshare, a peer-to-peer RV rental platform, finds that top travel destinations and trends for fall 2021 continue to be driven by the desire for memorable trips and experiences. Looking at recent data, RVshare finds that national parks continue to be popular attractions, with Yellowstone National Park, Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon still among the top ten destinations for September-November RV travel.

RVshare data also proves that out of the most frequently booked destinations for the next few weeks, nine out of the top 15 destinations are driven by major events & festivals.
