What’s that one thing that you look for when you plan to travel with your baby? You may name variety of things ranging from a diaper bag to water bottles and baby blankets. Well, the most important thing will be a car seat. You can’t carry your baby in your lap while travelling in your car. You need a car seat. If it is convertible then it will be a better option.

A convertible car seat is preferred by the parents for many reasons. Before deciding on to buy one for your baby, consider the following advantages and disadvantages.

Pros

4 awesome camping sites in the U.S.

 

I fell in love with camping and spending time in nature when I was a kid. I used to go camping with my family, mainly my parents and my grandparents whenever the first had the time. I’ve always been of the opinion that spending some hours in the middle of the woods hiking is way better than watching TV every night.

Of course, my time is limited now that I’m all grown up, but I still like to organize camping trips once in a while. I’ve been fortunate enough to afford an RV that I take out whenever I have a week off. There are many reasons to own a motorhome, one of them being that you are not restricted in terms of the places you can visit. I enjoy traveling and meeting new people, so it’s definitely my cup of tea.

One thing I would like to mention before I move on to and tell you all about four amazing camping sites in America is that you should never leave home without an RV GPS. It’s one of the handiest gadgets I’ve used in my life because there is no way you can know how to reach a camping ground without proper instructions.

North Rim Campground, Grand Canyon National Park

There are two places that every American has to visit in their lifetime, and those are Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park. This camping site is fantastic because you’ll be able to enjoy a bit of privacy. It’s large and packed with breathtaking views that will have you wanting to take up photography. RVs are allowed.

Sage Creek Primitive Campground, Badlands National Park

This campsite is something else. If you really want to know how America used to look like several hundreds of years ago, you should consider the location. It’s a unique place to visit and hosts one of the largest populations of foxes in the country. There are fifteen camping sites in the park, so you can choose whichever you like. I do have to add that there’s no running water, so make sure to be prepared.

 

Memaloose Campground, Memaloose State Park

The coolest thing about this park is that it has over one hundred sites. It’s one of the most convenient places to visit, in my opinion, because it has showers, flush toilets, picnic tables, and everything else. Also, if you’re the owner of a bigger RV, you’re not in for a surprise as even these are allowed here.

Jedediah Smith Campground, Jedediah SmithRedwood State Park

If you’re a fan of Lord of the Rings and any other movie where the woods play an important part, you’re going to love this park. It’s packed with as many as eighty-nine camping sites, and the variety of services is truly daunting. Only small RVs are allowed, so keep that in mind before going on the road.
