Summer Vacation Planning with California RV Rentals
Posted on May 03, 2015
The school year is coming to a close, and parents all over the country have already started to plan epic family escapes. The family road trip is a time-tested classic vacation, and with Los Angeles RVs you can take it to the next level. Imagine cruising down the highways of California in a luxurious Los Angeles Class C RV rental, taking in all of the slights through a crystal clear, enormous windshield as your family relaxes and unwinds in the living quarters or bedroom. There is nothing quite like it and, in a state as rich in national and state recreation areas as California, the Golden State is the best backdrop for your summer vacation. If you’re overwhelmed by the wealth of destinations California has to offer, start with these picturesque and one-of-a-kind U.S. National Parks.
Joshua Tree National Park
Joshua Tree National Park is the closest national park to LA and provides the perfect getaway for RVs in Los Angeles. Extraordinary night skies, world class hikes through unbelievable rock formations, legendary rock climbing, and an otherworldly landscape make it easy to see why Joshua Tree has been designated a national park.
Death Valley National Park
One of the most unique landscapes in the entire world is a short 4.5 hour drive from Los Angeles in your Los Angeles Class C RV. Death Valley National Park is home to Badwater Basin (the lowest point in the U.S.), an array of deserted ghost towns and settlements, mountains, rock formations, seemingly endless desert, and some of the most colorful sunsets you will ever see. Just be sure to pack plenty of water!
Yosemite National Park
If you have a few weeks set aside for a road trip and have chosen from the many California RV rentals, Yosemite National Park needs to be on your list. Yosemite is one of the most visited parks in the National Park System and for obvious reason. The waterfalls, peaks, valleys, and wildlife of the Sierra Nevada Mountains are some of the most spectacular in the world, and the hiking, camping, and rock climbing in the area is equally stunning.
Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks
These adjacent parks are well worth the one-two stop if you have the time to take your Los Angeles Class C RV north toward Yosemite. Sequoia National Park is a park for giants with groves of dwarfing sequois (including the world’s largest tree) and Mt. Whitney (the tallest peak in the contiguous U.S.). Next door, Kings Canyon is home to the Kings and San Joaquin rivers as well as one of the deepest canyons in the country.
Pinnacles National Park
In 2013, Pinnacles National Park was made the newest addition to the National Park Service and is home to yet another landscape unlike anything on the planet. The geology of this park is made up of huge spires and steep canyons that are the remnants of an ancient San Andreas volcano. Excellent hiking, bird and bat watching, exploring, and a unique array of talus caves welcome visitors from all over the world each year.
