Third time renting from this place and their staff have always been extremely helpful and have made the experience much better. The RV we rented this time around was newer but with some minor issues with the cabinets. Nothing that would prevent us from renting g from here again. Thanks!

El Monte in dallas have been nothing but a great experience. The staff is extremely helpful in explaining the RV and made the process really smooth. The vehicles are brand new and clean. I had to keep changing the contract but they were patient in updating it and helped me navigate the contract with ease. Would definitely recommend and will rent from them again if i'm in the Dallas area.

California Dreamin' RV Vacation Itinerary

California Dreamin' RV Vacation Itinerary

 

In less than 1200 miles and around 10 to 11 nights, you will go on a circle tour from Southern California to Northern California and back again taking in some of the most amazing spectacles California has to offer!  From Disneyland to giant Redwood trees; from Yosemite to Big Sur; from Hearst Castle to Malibu beach... All so different and all so amazing!

Destinations

Day 1 Santa Fe Springs to Anaheim 12 miles - 25 minutes

Day 1
Santa Fe Springs to Anaheim
12 miles - 25 minutes

After picking up your motorhome at El Monte RV Los Angeles location it's just a 15 minute drive south to your first night stop at the Anaheim Harbor RV Park.  The campground has a shuttle leaving every 20 minutes to Disneyland so, once checked in, why not leave your RV and you're off for a wonderful evening of fun.  Stay for the fireworks then head home for your first night in your motorhome.

Day 2 Anaheim to Sequoia National Park 241 miles - 5 hours

California Dreamin RV Vacation Idea

Day 2
Anaheim to Sequoia National Park
241 miles - 5 hours

The longest drive on this trip takes you north, headed for the Giant Redwoods in Sequoia National Park . You'll start by retracing your steps on Interstate 5 and once out of the metropolitan area will have Los Padres National Forest on your left and Angeles National Forest on your right.

 

Just beyond Lebec you will come onto Route 99, headed for Bakersfield (you should reach there a couple of hours after starting your journey from Anaheim).  

 

Bakersfield is home to the largest collection of Basque restaurants in the United States, you may want to stop for breakfast or lunch.

 

Continue north until Visalia where you may want to stock up with food. Then head toward Sequoia National Park.  At Three Rivers you will find Sequoia RV & Ranch, just 8 miles from the entrance to the park.

 

Several sites at Sequoia RV Ranch are alongside the river so, when you book, do tell them if you'd like this position.  

 

You will probably want to take it easy now: relax on the 21 acre property, swim in the spring-fed swimming hole, BBQ some of that fresh fish you just bought and spend a pleasant evening.

Yosemite National Park, California

Day 3
Sequoia National Park to Yosemite National Park

You are heading for Yosemite Village where there are a number of National Park campgrounds to choose from (www.recreation.gov & www.nps.gov).   These websites will not only give you details of campgrounds you can pre-book, but they will also tell you about the amazing things to be seen in Yosemite National Park.

Day 5
San Francisco to Moss Landing
90 miles - 1.5 hours

After a day in the city, enjoy 2 nights at Moss Landing KOA.  This will be your base for a tour of the Monterey Peninsula tomorrow, but this first day would probably be a good one for R&R to relax after a couple of long drives.  Moss Landing is in the heart of the Monterey Bay Sanctuary.  With its fish restaurants, antique shops and art galleries, this really is old-fashioned seaside Americana.

Day 6 Visiting the sites around Moss Landing 50 miles - 3 hours

Day 8 Big Sur to San Simeon 62 miles - 1.5 hours

Neptune Pool at Hearst Castle, San Simeon

Day 8
Big Sur to San Simeon

On your journey south today, you may want to stop for a while at Julie Pfeiffer Burns State Park to take the short, 1/3 mile easy walk on McWay Waterfall Trail.  It'll take you to an overlook facing McWay Falls, an incredible 80-foot waterfall that drops directly onto the sandy beach.  You are next headed for San Simeon and famous Hearst Castle built on land William Randolph Hearst inherited from his mother.

 

Originally known as "Camp Hill", its wilderness originally offered a place for family members and friends to "rough it" on camping trips.

 

Hearst envisioned more comfortable accommodations, and by 1947 they had created an estate of 165 rooms and 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools and walkways amidst the 250,000 acres which make up the estate.

Day 9 San Simeon to Pismo Beach 60 miles - 1 hour

Pismo Beach

Day 9
San Simeon to Pismo Beach
60 miles - 1 hour

Today, head south from San Simeon to Pismo Beach and Pismo Coast Village.  After about 35 miles you'll come to Morro Bay State Park which features lagoon and natural bay habitats.  The bay's most prominent landmark is Morro Rock,  The park museum has exhibits that cover natural features and cultural history, Native American life, geology and oceanography.  It would be a nice place to make an interim stop, even though today's journey is a short one.  Once you get to Pismo Beach, a classic beach town famous for its dunes, it's all about relaxing.  Pismo Beach is surrounded by golf courses.

 

There is horseback riding on the beach, fishing off of the pier, or surfing next to it, and a selection of trails to explore.  The spectacular Monarch butterfly groves is on the southern boundary.  Alternatively, just sit and look out for whales, otters and elephant seals just offshore. 

Day 10 Pismo Beach to Malibu 170 miles - 4 hours

Day 10
Pismo Beach to Malibu
170 miles - 4 hours

As you wave goodbye to Pismo Beach, you are heading for one of those iconic California places... Malibu.  Who knows, you may even bump into someone famous!  You can drive down on route 101 into Malibu or come off the main highway through coastal towns such as Mission Hills, Lompoc or Isla Vista.  A stop at Santa Barbara might be fun too.  When you arrive at Malibu Beach RV Park your site will have either an ocean or mountain view, so when booking it's worth saying which you'd prefer.  Whale watching is a great activity in March, April, October and November and you can watch dolphins all year round.  Ocean swimming, body surfing and beachcombing are also favorite activities.  And, of course, there's always star spotting either here or in Beverly Hills, just 23 miles away.

Day 11 Malibu to Santa Fe Springs 45 miles - 2 hours

Day 11
Malibu to Santa Fe Springs
