If the City by the Bay is beckoning you, you're not alone. Home of beautiful bridges, great food and plenty of recreation, San Francisco has enchanted visitors and locals alike since the Gold Rush days. And the best way to see this charming metropolis and its surrounding areas is in one of our San Francisco RV rentals from Cruise America. Conveniently located in Newark, our Bay Area RV rental center makes it easy to travel all over Northern California.
There are so many things to do in San Francisco, it would be hard to list more than just a fraction of them. Visitors would not want to miss a stroll along Fisherman's Wharf, taking in the smells of fresh seafood and sourdough bread. Make sure to visit Pier 39 to enjoy the shops and eateries, and to see the congregation of sea lions that call the K-Dock their home. Don't miss a visit to the birthplace of America's counter-culture, the Haight-Ashbury district. Hop on a historic trolley to get from place to place, and experience this magnificent means of transportation like they did in the days of old. Visit the fire hose nozzle-shaped iconic Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill. Become wiser in a scientific way at the Exploratorium in the Palace of Fine Arts in the Presidio. Visit the Golden Gate Park, and get a magnificent view of the bridge. While in the park, don't miss the Conservatory of Flowers and the carousel on Kear Drive. You can even visit a herd of bison at Bison Paddock. Find the freshest produce and great eats at the farmers market at the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero. If the season is right, take in a game at AT&T Park.
Once you've seen the sights of San Francisco and it's time to hit the road for some day tripping, there are several options. Here's an idea:
For a trip that will amaze you beyond imagination, visit the giant beauty of California's famous Yosemite National Park. There you will see the splendor of the magnificent giant sequoias. You will be spellbound by the tranquility in this forest of enormity. Stop at the "Fallen Giant" and walk through the "Tunnel Tree" to give you an idea of just how big these redwood miracles are. Stop at Inspiration Point and get an amazing bird's eye view of the entire valley, and gaze on the tallest waterfall in the nation, Yosemite Falls. Enjoy a picnic on the banks of the gorgeous Merced River. You can rent bicycles and enjoy the flat bike paths, or swim in one of the refreshing river pools in the summertime. You are likely to see a variety of wildlife while you're there. There are restaurants, museums and the Ansel Adams Gallery. There is virtually something for every member of your travel party. In addition, there are several quality RV parks in the Yosemite area. To get to Yosemite National Park from San Francisco, take I-580 E for approximately 164 miles. It's a three and a half hour trip, but well worth it. Besides, in your rental RV from Cruise America, the journey is half the fun!
