The Road Ahead Partnership and Harvest Hosts have partnered to provide RVers traveling Route 66 a new way to experience all the Mother Road has to offer.
Harvest Hosts is a program for self-contained RVers that allows its members to stay overnight for free at wineries, farms and other selected sites across the United States and Canada. An add-on program expands overnight offerings to hundreds of golf courses.
The goal of the new partnership is to expand current Harvest Hosts locations to include unique sites along historic Route 66 and enhance the experience RV travelers have on the Mother Road.
Harvest Hosts currently provides access to more than 735 wineries, farms, breweries, museums and other attractions where members can stay overnight for free. A one-year membership is $79 (although RVtravel.com readers can get a 15% percent discount by using the coupon code HHFRIENDS15 at checkout).
In an effort to support those who act as hosts, RVers are encouraged to support the businesses through buying some wine, shopping in the gift shop (jams, jellies and specialty cheeses are often great choices), making a donation to a museum, or stocking up on local produce. Hosts are almost always eager to dispense travel information, and that’s for free!
Harvest Hosts has tens of thousands of members from the United States, Canada, and around the world, all of whom have one thing in common: the desire to experience unique locations as they travel. Despite all those members, RVers who stay at a Harvest Location are almost alone or with only two or three other campers, a refreshing change from crowded RV parks.
Established in 2015 with the support of the National Park Service and the World Monuments Fund, The Road Ahead Partnership’s mission is to revitalize and sustain Route 66 as a national and international icon through partnerships focused on promotion, preservation, research and education, and economic development.
