Temperatures are generally moderate across much of the country. (OK, I said generally.)
Warm, sunny days paired with cool, pleasant evenings make it the perfect time to RV and camp.
But if you’re wondering which direction to head, we have you covered with this list of the eight cities with perfect weather in June as compiled by the folks at Travel Trivia.
The list is, in part, based on the average monthly high and low temerpatures, along with home many days of rain to expect, based on stats from NOAA.
And we take it a step further by talking about some of the regional offerings each city offers RVers like you.
8. Los Angeles, Calif.
As we get into summer, L.A.’s temps will approach or pass classification as “sweltering.” For a couple of more weeks, however, chances are you will catch the area approaching perfection weather-wise. Beach areas like Santa Monica and Venice are prone to cool Pacific Ocean breezes. Without stifling heat, you may want to take in some of the tourist attractions, too, like the Walk of Fame, TCL Chinese Theatre, and more. Average highs are 79 degrees Fahrenheit, lows are 62 degrees Fahrenheit and there are usually zero days with rain.
7. Santa Fe, N.M.
New Mexico’s capital city in the northern part of the state is beautiful in June — as in you will likely want to be outside every possible moment you are able. SantaFe.com details more than 400 miles of hiking and biking trails. And RVLifestyle has written about numerous other attractions in the state, including the Gila Cliff Dwellings, the New Mexico Mining Museum, Bluewater Lake State Park, Manzano Mountains State Park, Water Canyon Campground, Rockhound State Park, and more. Average highs are 83 degrees Fahrenheit, lows are 50 degrees Fahrenheit with an average three days of rain for the month.
6. San Francisco, Calif.
High temps and clouds are kept at bay in June in San Francisco. You might want to have a light jacket handy for average temps that are in the 67-53 degree Fahrenheit range. However, with an average zero days of rain in June, you’ll also want to have some sunscreen and sunglasses handy so you can enjoy the area. Several spots within relatively short driving distances from San Francisco have been featured by RVLifestyle, including Vista Point at Golden Gate Bridge and Navarro Beach Campground.
5. New York, N.Y.
Long, cold winters seem to quickly give way to long, hot summers in the Big Apple, but tucked snuggly between is the month of June. Like most of the East Coast, weather is beautiful as temps average between 80-64 degrees Fahrenheit (though there are an average of eight rainy days). Of course, when you’re ready to leave the city, you might want to consider New York’s Finger Lakes or Letchworth State Park.
4. Flagstaff, Ariz.
Nights get chilly (the city is 7,000 feet above sea level), but daytime highs average 79 degrees Fahrenheit. Of course, the area offers tons of great outdoor activities local and regionally at places such as Sedona and the Grand Canyon. The area averages one day of rain in June. But be warned: if you get into July and August, your chances increase exponentially of getting caught in monsoon-like conditions.
3. Denver, Colo.
Music festivals, farmers’ markets and all sorts of outdoor activities await those who visit the Mile High City a relatively short time after they can safely tuck away shovels for a few months. The average high in June is 86 degrees Fahrenheit while lows average 54 degrees Fahrenheit. There are average of four days of rain.
2. Mackinac Island, Mich.
The favorite stop in our home state is a must-see place for those who love nature, history, and aren’t bothered by tourists. June is ideal as temperatures are about as perfect as can be — average high is 70 degrees Fahrenheit, low is 51 degrees Fahrenheit. There are an average six days of rain. Of course, since the place is an island, you will have to park your RV and take a ferry over. When you return to the mainland, however, there are ample opportunities to camp in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and northern Lower Peninsula. (Check out our Upper Peninsula 7 Day RV Adventure Guide!)
1. San Diego, Calif.
Average high temps year-round in San Diego are in the mid-60s to mid-70s. The average high in June is 72 degrees Fahrenheit, sinking to 62 degrees Fahrenheit at night. Brrrrr! Be sure to check out the RVLifestyle feature from contributor Janet Arnold called “Southern California attractions for the RVer” that talks specifically about San Diego and the surrounding area.
