Albuquerque, New Mexico is at the crossroads of central New Mexico, where Interstate 40 intersects Interstate 25. The largest city in New Mexico, it lies on a plain along the banks of the Rio Grande River, at the base of the Sandia Mountains to the east. Albuquerque represents a synergy of Native American, Hispanic and Anglo cultures where traditional and modern cultures coexist. A number of Indian Reservations and Pueblos exist in and near the city. The Native American culture is probably the most deeply rooted of the many branches that make up the diverse ethnic and cultural environment of New Mexico. The Anasazi Indians were virtually the first identifiable inhabitants of the Southwest. They have bestowed a legacy of kivas, cliff dwellings and traditional arts and crafts. Today, a wide variety of Native American culture is available at the 19 Indian pueblos that lie within the boundaries of New Mexico. Indigenous arts and crafts are still widely practiced in New Mexico's pueblos, and you can almost always find native crafts people selling their wares. (Whenever possible, remember to check in at the tribal office before venturing out into the pueblo.) Ritual dancing, pow-wows, and feast days are a large part of Indian culture. Some of the dances are traditional, dating back to long before the arrival of Europeans in America; others re-enact a variety of events that took place during the uneasy early stages of European-Native American relations. One excellent way to orient yourself before any visit to a pueblo is to tour the Indian Pueblo Cultural Centre in northwest Albuquerque. Open seven days a week, the centre offers a huge range of exhibits, performances, and information on Native American culture in general, and Pueblo Indians in particular. Of the centre’s many components (children's museum, gift shop, bookstore, restaurant), only the museum charges admission. Weekend performances of Native American dances, demonstrations of arts and crafts, and a variety of year-round special events are free to the public.

From 2014, travellers from overseas will be able to explore the National Parks, and other sites of America’s historic West, by motorhomes collected much closer to the places they’ve come to see.

Billings, Montana, is by far the closest international rental station to the magnificent Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks; to General Custer’s Little Big Horn; Wild Bill and Calamity Jane’s Deadwood; Buffalo Bill’s Cody and the many more scenic and historic sites.

Yellowstone was created as America’s, and probably the world’s, first national park in 1872: twenty years before surrounding Montana, Wyoming and Idaho even became States. Millions of visitors come each year to experience the unique combination of stunning Rocky Mountain scenery; three hundred and ninety-four species of fauna and the world’s largest concentration of geysers. Indeed, among thousands of colourful hot springs, it is home to half of the world's total number of geysers in its nine basins.

The northeast park entrance at Silver Gate is just over 100 miles and could be only a couple of hours from Billings. Most people, though. will take far longer experiencing what has been called "the most beautiful drive in America” rising to very nearly 11,000 feet or 3,350 metres. The scenery is jaw-dropping so it’s a good idea to stop frequently to admire it but then keep your eyes firmly on a road that switch-backs down to Yellowstone. The gentler alternative is the four hour drive, plus time well spent exploring Buffalo Bill’s Cody, before arriving at Yellowstone’s East Entrance.

Leaving Yellowstone to the south takes the driver directly into Grand Teton National Park. Rising up to 13,775 feet or 4,200 metres, these are ‘new’ mountains rising abruptly without foothills. Those with a knowledge of the language will understand how the name of the range is cautiously attributed to early French Canadian trappers. Just south of the Grand Tetons is world famous resort, Jackson Hole.

To the east of Billings, it’s only an hour’s drive to The Little Big Horn Battlefield where General Custer encountered Sitting Bull’s and Crazy Horse’s warriors and suffered what has been described as the worst American military disaster ever.

According to her story, another iconic name from America’s west had, six years earlier, joined General Custer’s forces as a scout. Illness caused Calamity Jane to leave Custer only weeks before his death. On her way from hospital, she says she met ‘Wild’ Bill Hickock and they moved on together to Deadwood. The saloon where he was famously shot, and the graves of both Calamity and Wild Bill, are to be found in this old western town. Deadwood is under three hundred miles from Billings, a drive of about four hours. Along the way is The Devil’s Tower, the backdrop to the movie Close Encounters.

Going north out of Billings, Glacier National Park is less than a five hour drive. Glacier eventually merges with Canada’s Waterton Lakes to form the Waterton Glacier Peace Park. Though much of Glacier’s spectacular ‘Going to the Sun’ road is not available to motorhomes the drive alongside the Rocky Mountains is memorably rewarding and should form part of a quite amazing tour taking advantage of this new motorhome rental station

Putting some or all of these experiences into an ideal itinerary, created personally for each customer, is the specialty of The Motorhome Experts. They’ve driven all these roads and visited all these places more than once. Their personal experience and knowledge of touring North America by motorhome is almost certainly unequalled.

Then on to historic Ybor City where the Cuban sandwiches are hot and crisp, the cigars are hand-rolled, and the colourful streets are lined with fun. Rather spread this over a couple of days!
What next? White, sugar sand beaches, sport fishing, jet skiing, parasailing… so much to do in Florida’s second largest resort area.

In the heart of the downtown you'll find art galleries, museums, historic sites and churches, shopping, sidewalk cafes and friendly nightclubs.

Montreal, Quebec…… Montreal's renowned duality of Old World charm infused with North American energy lies at its very heart; however, it is the plurality of cultures that really makes this metropolis tick. A photographer’s dream, you could snap away at warp speed and capture a new story with every click. Montreal is as romantically traditional as it is cutting-edge innovative, as cosmopolitan dynamic as it is small-town friendly. Yet despite this diversity, an underlying homogeneity exists in this vibrant population who collectively and confidently "live and let live? - and do it well. Take Saint-Denis Street for example. On the first warm day of spring, Montréalers flock to the outdoor terraces en masse to celebrate winter’s departure and lift their faces to the light like sunflowers. Or downtown during the holidays, where rosy-cheeked shoppers stop to listen to Cyrille the Spoonman as he merrily click-clacks away in front of Ogilvy’s department store. Or summer Sundays on Mount Royal, where everyone gathers to let loose to the tribal beat of the tam-tams. Bohemian? Maybe. Uplifting? Definitely. After spending some time here, you’ll notice that without the complex mix of flavours - ethnicity, culture, language, ideas, cuisine, you name it - warm camaraderie and sheer joie de vivre, anywhere else just seems bland.
