Time for Some Sun?


If you live in a bone-chillingly frigid environment during the cold months, it may be nice to find somewhere packed with family fun, but where the climate stays on the mild side. There are many online resources available to help you find the right RV park for your cold-weather escape, but we have a few ideas as well. For instance, the San Diego area provides some nice RV parks that are on the beach (or close to the beach) that could be just exactly what you're hoping for. Here are a few different places to park your motorhome while you take the relaxing time to thaw out:

Paradise by the Sea – This resort is one of the highest-rated RV parks on the California coast, and boasts the title of “Southern California’s Only Beach RV Resort.” The resort-style pool and hot tub are just a couple of the great amenities that are offered at this San Diego North Shore beachside RV park. There are coin-operated washers and dryers available, as well as free HD cable TV and Wi-Fi. The beach entrance is easily accessed and the climate in San Diego is wonderful year-round. There are fire rings and patio furniture that can be enjoyed by travelers on those cool nights. The winter rates run from $65-90 a night (with discounts for longer stays), and reservations can be made online.

Mission Bay RV Resort – This beautiful, pet-friendly RV park is surrounded by the waters and action of Mission Bay in San Diego. It is a facility with 24-hour security.
