An RV Camping Trip on the California Coast

There is no better time to explore the California coast than right now.  It may still be winter, but the crowds are gone and you are going to get some solitude and privacy on this western vacation.  Take an RV as your mode of transport and sleeping quarters.  You will quickly find out how thrilling a trip up the Pacific coast can be.  It is also very convenient.  Rent your RV at El Monte RV Rentals in San Diego and get ready to experience the California coast in style.

Start out in Southern California and head north.  This is going to be a trip of a lifetime, with beaches where the Pacific ocean crashes ashore, redwoods shade your picnic area in the afternoon and comfortable RV campgrounds exist all along the way.  It is great to begin your adventures in San Diego where you can take time to visit the San Diego Zoo.  If the weather is warm enough, which it most likely will be, you can beachcomb on Coronado Beach.

A little further north is a mecca of seaside amusement – Oceanside.  Take a boating tour, go jet skiing or fish from the pier.  You can play a round of golf on one of the golf courses here in Oceanside or you may enjoy visiting the California Surf Museum.  RV camping is recommended at Oceanside RV Park .  Here you’ll have easy access to all the attractions the area has to offer.

The next place on your itinerary for the California coast trip is beautiful Santa Barbara.  Besides the lovely ocean views, there are historic sites to see, shops where you can pick up unique gifts for those back home, and hiking trails to explore at El Capitan State Beach.

Everyone must visit Monterey and Big Sur at least once in their life.  Driving Big Sur is a breathtaking trip along some of the most beautiful coastline in the United States.  With lots to do in Monterey, you can stay here for some days.  Bird watchers come to try and catch a glimpse of the rare California condor.  Others come specifically to tour the Monterey Aquarium.

A spectacular view of ocean and coastline is available at Point Reyes National Seashore.  As you watch the waves crashing against the headlands and see the sandy beaches and lighthouse, you know you have come to the right place to get inspiration for whatever your big dream is.  It’s a place of beauty and solitude.

After visiting Eureka and absorbing some area history in Old Town, you can head to Redwood National Park to walk among the redwoods.  This is a truly unique experience if you’ve never been to the coastal redwood forests before.

This is just a taste of what awaits you on the California coast.  Pack up the kids, your friends, neighbors and relatives and head off for one super RV trip.  You will love every second.
