It would require the writing skill of a Shakespeare or Thomas Hardy to describe the diversity of Northern California. For, Northern California offers a whole variety of entertain, visual delights, cuisine, and so much of history.
The beauty of Northern California lies in its silvery beaches, diverse marine, the awe inspiring forests of tall sequoia and redwood trees, the towns, now forlorn, which at one teemed with prospectors of goal and silver.
California is easily accessible. If you are planning a trip to Northern California, and wish to avoid the routine and often mundane tours, and wish to plan your own trip, with no specific agenda, then RV camping is ideal for you. Be warned however that during the summer months Northern California gets heavily booked, and woe betide you, if you don’t book in advance.
Be sure to book well in advance at the right place. Find out which places in North California have good, well maintained RV camps, and you can book a place for your RV, what facilities are offered and so on. Please go into detail, because if you land up in the wrong place, instead of having a holiday, you would be spending a nightmarish experience. The best place for taking an RV is generally in the Sequoia National Park and the Redwood National Park. They have good hook up facilities and ease of access. Make sure that the dimensions of your RV are such you can get in and out without having to content with outsized RVs! It has happened to many, and sure, you would want to avoid it.
You can even think of camping your RV on the beaches of California. There are some very good beaches where you can park your RV, but again, you need to call in first and book yourself a good camping place with all the attendant facilities that you need. You can think of Fort Braggs Beach and the Half Moon Bay. These are the more popular ones, but you can discover more suitable for yourself.
We mentioned earlier that another great attraction of Northern California is its ghost towns, that were once a hotbed of activity with prospectors for gold. Some people like to camp out here in the old ghost towns. Bodie is one such town.
Sacramento, the historical capital also attracts visitors in very large number of months. You can of course choose to stay in one of the large many hotels of the town, but if you think it cramps your style, you can use your RV in one the camps that are available just outside the city.
Before beginning your trip, make sure your RV is in good condition, and that the air conditioning is working perfectly. Northern California can become very hot and humid so checking your air conditioner is a must.
Again it bears repetition that if you are planning a trip to North California you need to make firm bookings whether it is for an RV or even an hotel room. And if you are taking your family with you, do make sure very much that all your travel plans are in good shape and everything is finalised and you are holding confirmed bookings.
