In the United States, California is by far the top U.S. state for such posts, averaging more than 150 tagged #vanlife in under two hours. While tracking location data, Spruce said it determined that the top California destinations for #vanlifers are cities and national parks such as Los Angeles, Lake Tahoe, Big Sur, Calif, and Yosemite National Park. “With an abundance of ocean-side campgrounds and laid-back attitudes, California certainly reigns supreme as the number one #vanlife capital within the U.S.,” the report noted.
Other top five states with rich van life communities include No 2 Washington, No. 3 Colorado, No. 4 Oregon, and No. 5 Wyoming.
