Guide to San Diego

San Diego

Sunny San Diego, the southernmost city in perpetually warm southern California, has become a particularly popular winter refuge for RV motorists from the continent's colder northern half. Several local RV parks are situated steps from Pacific Ocean beaches. Despite San Diego's status as the state's second most populous city, it is nonetheless able to maintain a laid-back vibe, especially compared to its northern neighbour, Los Angeles.

On top of that, the wonders and delights of Mexico are barely a 30-minute-drive south of downtown San Diego, and there are some famous amusement parks to the north. Younger visitors may prefer to head north to Carlsbad, home of Legoland California. An even larger and more legendary theme park, Disneyland, lies even further north in Anaheim. Other worthwhile day trips include the mountain community of Julian and the Imperial Valley desert. Boarding a Broadway Pier ferry is the most relaxing way to reach the serene peninsula of Coronado.

Atractions

San Diego's historic centre has long been its Gaslamp Quarter, a former gambling and prostitution district now filled with far more wholesome pastimes. Several of the city's most recommended restaurants, nightlife, and shops now fill these 94 historic buildings.

A more than 100-year-old carousel with hand-carved animals is among Seaport Village's most unique activities. This pedestrian only complex adjacent to San Diego Bay contains more than 70 shops, galleries, and restaurants. The Cabrillo National Monument on the Point Loma peninsula contains the spot where California's first European visitors walked in 1542.

SeaWorld San Diego may be the city's most family-friendly attraction. In addition to the amusing killer whale, seal, and dolphin spectacles found in all SeaWorld parks, the San Diego park also features a Wild Arctic simulator, Sesame Street's Bay of Play, and a couple of stunning views from the Bayside Skyride and Sky Tower.

SeaWorld is also just one of several attractions at the biggest water themed man-made park in the nation, Mission Bay Park, whose playground's pirate ship replica is a popular place for children to play. Another scenic San Diego green space, Belmont Park, boasts one of only a couple of coastal roller coasters on the west coast as well as the world's most expansive indoor swimming pool.

Next to Belmont Park stands Mission Beach, a place where surfers and swimmers can enjoy their favourite water sports in separate spaces. Many scuba divers and fishers, on the other hand, prefer the more secluded South Mission Beach Park.

Camping in San Diego

The San Diego Trolley and Interstate 8 are both conveniently located next to the San Diego RV Resort in the eastern suburb of La Mesa. Palm trees grow throughout this urban park belonging to the reputable Sunland RV Resort chain.

Mission Bay RV Resort is named after its surrounding body of water between Interstate 5 and Pacific Beach. Fiesta Island and SeaWorld San Diego are directly south of this family-friendly RV park.

A neighbouring private marina is one of the main attractions at the Chula Vista RV Park and Resort. This seaside RV park also boasts a couple of restaurants, a swimming pool with a spa, and a general store which sells women's clothing.

Driving in San Diego

RV motorists who drive from San Diego to the end of Interstate 5 at the Mexican border should expect long waits at the border crossing. San Diego is also the starting point for Interstate 8, which extends east to Arizona, and Interstate 15, which travels north to the Canadian border. Driving under the influence (80 mg/dL) carries harsh penalties.
