Who Are the Charming Millers?

Tessa and Philip Miller are an adventure-driven couple who discovered a love of RVing in 2013. Philip Miller was participating in a race called the RAGBRAI, which is a week-long bicycle race. Rather than tent camping, Tessa and Philip opted to purchase an RV, which allowed them to have a much more comfortable camping experience!

This also allowed them to find a passion for travel and RVing. Since then, this husband and wife team has made an effort to travel in their RV from their home in Scottsdale, Arizona for around six months of the year.

You can also find Tessa Miller in RV Destinations Magazine, where she is a featured author.

What Makes Them Stand Out

As tcharming millers dogshe name of their blog implies, Tessa and Philip are extremely charming. This comes through in their posts, and you’ll find yourself smiling easily as you read through their adventures. And if you don’t manage to find yourself endeared to Tessa and Philip’s easygoing tone, then the pictures of their rescue dog who joins them on their travels will certainly tug at your heartstrings.

Their blog posts feature images of their travels, and you’ll find some seriously stunning sights. The Charming Adventures of the Millers is a blog sure to do as it promises and charm you, as well as offer you plenty of inspiration for your next RV trip.

Where They Have Been

Tessa and Philip do their best to spend about 6 months of the year traveling and make an effort to visit as many locations as possible. Instead of asking, “Where have they been?” it’s probably easier to ask the question, “Where haven’t they been?”

The Millers have toured the majority of the United States, and have so far only missed out on 7 of the lower 48 states in the US. They have also done a small amount of RVing in Canada, including Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta.

You can take a look at all the states they’ve visited, plus the specific areas where they’ve stayed in their RV.

What They Write About

The Millers are adventure and travel-focused. Their blog posts cover the sights they see and have no shortage of images that will make you wish you were there too.

You’ll also find their posts to be super informative. When they visit a historic site, they take their time to learn about it and report their findings in engaging and interesting ways.

If you’re interested in hiking, Philip and Tessa have done their fair share, and blog about all the best hiking spots they find on their travels. It’s easy to see and feel the Millers’ passion for travel and adventure while reading their blog!
