Anaheim is an adventure for RVers of all ages

Anaheim has been known for decades as a tourist spot, not to mention a place where RVers love to go camping, play on the beaches and enjoy other local attractions.
Most famously, Anaheim is known for being the home of Disneyland. There are rides for all ages, interactive learning experiences, all your favourite Disney characters, gourmet food and special events on a regular basis.
Sports fans should also check out the Angel Stadium of Anaheim, where you can join the Halos for a behind-the-scenes ballpark tour, and see areas that the public is normally not permitted to see.

San Diego earned its reputation as a California beach destination 

With its wealth of museums, beaches, events and of course, the renowned San Diego Zoo, this California city is a known travel hot spot.

Winery tours are a big deal here, as are whale and dolphin watching tours and cruises. 

If you're craving a beach day, head to Mission and Pacific beaches, two interconnected areas along the shoreline that offer prime surfing, swimming and sunbathing conditions.
