One Easy Step to Happy

It was another seemingly random poster on social media. You know, the ones that combine a quote or clever saying with an image. I typically skim them; they have a fraction of a second to grab my attention or I’m on to the next thing. “Plan a trip, but don’t take it.” That’s what caught my eye. It was one sentence in a list – 10 Scientific Ways to be Happy. Really? Happy? This little exercise? I am reading this in a week where I am, once again, visualizing where I might go next. Come to think of it, I

A Stampede of Color and Design

The naysayers will try to convince you there is no value in hanging out on Facebook or engaging in Twitter, but I pooh-poohed that in 2009 when Facebook was the connector for a fabulous trip to Italy. While that’s an outsized example of what social media can do, I get so many ideas from scrolling my timeline and seeing what people are up to. That’s how I happened on my cousin and her husband visiting The Stampede Outdoor Art Exhibition in Hopewell, N.J., which is actually 68 hand-painted oxen placed in locales all over the suburban town. My 11-year-old niece seemed

The Airstream Community

Community: a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. While the Airstream community may not “live” in one specific place, there is a community that has grown across the country among Airstreamers. Community is an important and amazing thing. When you surround yourself with people who have similar characteristics, interests, and goals as you, you tend to find that “doing life” is a bit more enjoyable and full of great adventures. We recently released a new

Letting Curiosity Lead the Way

I’ve enjoyed a picnic at the beautiful, sacred Newark Indian Burial Mounds in Newark, Ohio. I’ve had a spot-on ice cream sundae at the Cow Palace in Shelbyville, Indiana. I’ve visited the storied Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico. All wonderful experiences. All asides to trips planned for other reasons. In other words, none of those was a destination, but each one made me richer in my travel life, in my whole life. I’ve been reading a lot of articles lately about how best to travel, how smart and cool it is to do non-tourist-y things or how a bucket

Why a Live Riveted Summer Makes the School Year Better

It’s hard to believe that the summer is quickly coming to a close. With an amazing summer behind us, the recent release of our 2015 Travel Trailer models and the addition of Quietstream, our conversations are abuzz with lots of exciting things. And with a new school year kicking off for many of our littlest Airstreamers and adventurers, we got to thinking about how a “Live Riveted” summer is the best way to spend summer break. However, the greatness of a Live Riveted summer doesn’t end when the school bus rolls around the corner. In fact, for many families, Live

Five Places to Visit in the USA

At Airstream, we make it a point to celebrate people who embrace the words of Eleanor Roosevelt and truly live life to the fullest. This way of life—the Live Riveted life—is one that Airstreamers know well. We love hearing about their adventures, memories and places they’ve visited along the way. To encourage the Airstream audience to share Live Riveted stories, we have held several monthly challenges asking people to share their favorite photos, memories and more. The July challenge was one of the best yet! We asked Airstream fans to share a photo of their favorite place in the USA. There

Living Riveted in National Parks

National parks are some of the United States’ greatest treasures. In 1872, President Ulysses S. Grant signed the act that established Yellowstone as the nation’s first national park. Sequoia and Yosemite followed, both established as national parks in 1890. Today, a total of 84.9 million acres has been designated as national park land, which accounts for approximately 3.6 percent of all land in the United States. There are 58 different national parks in the U.S., and we at Airstream love that we have so many incredible national parks to visit. National parks allow us to take in our country’s beautiful natural
