Where to RV in the Winter: Southern California Edition
October 2, 2014
Northern California is gorgeous, but let’s face it: it can be rather cold and damp in the winter. Luckily, the southern part of the Golden State isn’t that far away – especially if you’re in an RV from your roadtrek rv dealer. Read on to discover where the best places are to go RVing in SoCal this winter.
- Borrego Springs. Known as, “Palm Springs without the crowds,” Borrego Springs is ideal for golfers. There might not be much in the way of water – there are no lakes and it’s nowhere near the beach – but the moderately-priced RV Park and 50 degree weather make it the perfect destination for snowbirds.
- Indio. Less than half an hour to the east of Palm Springs, Indio has its own brand of desert charm. Indio is the perfect spot for day trips into Joshua Tree National Park. You can also visit one of the city’s productive date farms such as Shields, and have a tasty date shake. If you’re a nature lover, make sure to head over to the nearby Living Desert Zoo and Gardens in Palm Desert.
- Desert Hot Springs. Also located near Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs gets its name from the two aquifers that pump out hot mineral water. Look for parks such as Tamarisk RV park which provide use of the park’s mineral pools. The best thing about Desert Hot Springs? The water doesn’t have that unpleasant sulfur smell usually associated with natural springs.
- San Diego. It really doesn’t get better than San Diego in the winter. Fantastic weather year round means you can indulge in water sports in December as well as enjoy fresh produce at the local farmer’s market. Splurge for a beachfront spot to enjoy the spectacular sunsets.
Whether you go to the desert or the beach, any of these SoCal spots is sure to be a winter winner.
