Become a SnowBird!

When winter descends on northern California and points further north, you'll be wishing you'd made plans to get away from the cold with its high heating bills and aching joints. Don't let that happen to you ...plan now to get away for the winter.

You can drive south in November ... fly home for Christmas if you want ... and then drive back home in the spring ... arriving after the snow has melted, and the daffodils are blooming.

Afraid you'll be lonely & homesick? No way! California RV Parks that specialize in the seasonal stays of Snowbirds also specialize in fun activities that give you opportunities to make friends and find folks with the same interests you have ... card tournaments, bocce, crafts, bingo, dances, talent nights, potlucks & BBQs, horseshoes, water aerobics, chapel services... are just a few of the activities you'll find. You'll meet so many new friends you'll miss them over the summer, and be excited to come back again next year!

Don't miss the opportunity to make the most of your snowbird trip ... take your time and visit some California attractions enroute! Our list also includes parks that have nearby attractions ... stop in, stay a couple days to see the local sights! And, not every snowbird makes it all the way south ... some stop along the way and choose to stay! In California many areas do not have snow, so you just might find a place to call home for the winter that isn't in the desert!

Don't live in snow country? Why not have a winter getaway! Winter can really be dreary ... even in "sunny" California. Why not setup your RV once and stay in it often throughout the winter? You can use your economical vehicle to commute back & forth.

Find parks that cater to Snowbirds!

 
Featured Region: San Francisco

SF_shopingCool fog. Hot restaurants. Neighborhoods to explore. Cultures to experience... San Francisco is so much more than just a bridge!

This is the place for culture .... opera, symphony and ballet ... they all perform at the beautiful San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center.

Known as a shopping mecca ... from flowers to shoes to clothes for the whole family ... fully exploring San Francisco's shopping is not for the faint of heart ... but oh so fun!

The area boast many museums, aquariums, a zoo and some of the world's finest architecture. There's just too much to say here ... so you'll just have to come explore!

Some of the local RV parks have access to convenient transportation into the city. Just ask them when you make your reservation. That way you can park the RV and leave the city driving to the professionals!
