San Francisco RV Rental

Drive Your RV Rental Over The Golden Gate Bridge

Say hello to San Francisco and start your motorhome tour of America’s western states. 
 

Hiring a motorhome from San Francisco

San Francisco is one of the most iconic cities in the USA with its Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars and Alcatraz Prison. Just over a million people live in San Fran, making it a thriving city, but not an overcrowded one. San Francisco is also a fantastic place to begin a Californian motorhome vacation, where you have 19 fleets to choose from with Motorhome Republic. There are RVs for families, campervans for those looking for a simple bed-on-wheels without the extras, and luxury motorhomes for couples and groups who want a comfortable experience. 
 

Places to visit in your San Francisco motorhome rental

As one of two famous cities in California, a big drawcard of heading further south in the state is Los Angeles. The city is home to the Hollywood Hills, the original Disneyland in Anaheim, and the unmatchable Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. It will take you a little over 6 hours in total to drive between these cities, a trip of just under 400 miles. 
 
America’s west is known for its towering sequoia trees, so a trip to these forest giants while you’re in the area is a must. Make your way just over 5 hours southeast to the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, which are right next to each other in the Sierra Nevada. You can hike, bike, horseback ride and more amongst sequoias that can grow up to 280 feet tall. 
 
Napa Valley is only two hours north of San Francisco, and is one of the best spots in the country for wine growing – and therefore wine tasting. This beautiful spot also offers spas, wine tours by bike, and luxurious hot air balloon rides over the landscape. 
 
Four hours directly east (roughly 160 miles) of San Francisco is the Yosemite National Park, the third most visited in the country with almost 4 million people coming to view this natural paradise every year. It’s full of waterfalls, granite cliffs, sequoia trees, hiking tracks, and animal life. 
 
California’s capital city Sacramento is just 2.5 hours from San Francisco and is a beautiful spot built around the Sacramento River with pockets of history throughout the city. It’s known for its museums, food, parklands, and historic locations.

An 8.5 hour drive to the east is the city of casinos and shotgun weddings. The Nevada city of Las Vegas is a great spot to start or finish an RV Rental roadtrip.
 

Best seasons to visit San Francisco

The weather in San Francisco is notoriously difficult to predict, and the seasons don’t tend to correspond with the normal expectations.
 
Spring, from March to May, is a great time to visit, as the city tends to be both warm and dry, without the usual springtime rain showers. 
 
Fall is arguably the best time to stay in San Francisco. From September to November, there is less fog, plenty of warmth, and not much rain. 
 
San Fran summers tend to be cooler than expected, with fog rolling in from the sea. Similarly, winters are unlike normal winters, as in it practically never snows and the temperatures remain quite mild, although rain is common.

RV's vary widely, and in a big city like San Francisco there can be so many options it is overwhelming. Search and compare motorhomes from companies including Apollo RV, Road Bear, Cruise America, El Monte RV, Jucy Rentals, Expedition Motorhomes, Lost Campers and many more.

Top Tips for San Francisco RV Trips

These few pointers will help you keep on track and get the most out of your road trip.

  • San Francisco has so many great possible destinations, but the Napa and Sonoma countryside should definitely be top of the list.
  • You need to be 21 or older to rent an RV.
  • A credit card is often required to guarantee your rental.
  • Give yourself time! California is full of small towns, National Parks and hidden gems – be flexible, your itinerary might change.
  • If you are arriving from an international flight it is always wise (and often compulsory) to leave your pick up until the following day. That way you will start your journey well rested and ready for the adventure ahead.

RV rental depots in San Francisco


Compass RV Rentals and El Monte RV

Compass RV Rentals and El Monte RV Compass RV Rentals and El Monte RV are situated at 6301 Scarlett Court, Dublin in San Francisco.

It also is very near to the premium designer outlet store in Livermore. Transfers are not available from the airports, but can be organized for $15 per person each way from a number of hotels around the airport and central downtown area, provided you call to arrange the service before 9.30am on the day. Motorhomes available for rent in San Francisco run the gamut from two ­berth RVs to eight­ berth class A vehicles. Collection times begin at 1pm, and be sure to arrive with plenty of time to spare as orientation and contract processing can take 1-­2 hours.

Lost Campers

Lost Campers offer budget rental vans for affordable touring and a smaller carbon footprint. For those who want to stay anonymous on the roads, Lost Campers don’t have branding on their vans. These rentals do not have toilet and shower facilities on board, so you will need to stay in campgrounds or RV sites during your stay. You do get linen provided, 24­hour roadside assistance and 100 miles of free driving per day. The rental office in San Francisco is located at 2955 3rd Street between 25th and 26th streets, and is open seven days a week 9am to 6pm, and is only closed on major holidays. Drop off and pick up times run throughout the day. The San Francisco International Airport is just 15 minutes away by taxi, or you can take the BART to downtown. Alternatively, Lost Campers offers a $40 one­way transfer for up to four people from the airport or city center.
 

Escape Campervans and Wild Campers

Located at 427 Beach Street, Fishermans Wharf, this San Francisco depot stands out from the pack with a fleet of artfully designed van conversions from Escape Campervans and Wild Campers. They offer vans with up to three sleeping spots, and they don’t charge extra for drivers aged 21 to 25. You will need to organize a campsite or RV park, as these vans do not come with bathroom facilities. The depot is open every day 8.30am until 5pm and does not offer transfer services. That said, public transport in San Francisco is quick and easy from city areas or either airport, and a taxi from SFO will cost approximately $25­35, or a little more from Oakland Airport. Drop offs need to be made before 10am and collections are scheduled for 11am to 4pm. If you return the van more than an hour later than the agreed time, you will be penalized with an extra full­ day rental charge.
 

Best Time RV

Best Time RV runs a fleet of E­23 Winnebago motor homes from its depot at 847 Industrial Parkway West in Hayward, about 25 miles or 40 minutes from San Francisco International Airport, or just a 20 minute drive from Oakland Airport. Taxi from either airport or the city are affordable, and there are transfers available for designated hotels. The depot is open 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, as well as 9am until noon on Saturdays. All RV's are less than a year old, have an on board toilet and shower, and a fridge and microwave oven. Return times run 9am to 11am every day, and Best Time RV will charge $30 per hour for late drop offs.
 

Apollo Rentals and Star RV

Star RV is a premium dealer of motor homes, offering RVs that are less than a year old. It is run by Apollo Rentals, the largest privately owned leisure vehicle operator in the world. They are both located at 14273 Washington Ave in San Leandro, and with Apollo’s variety of mid­-range vehicles for hire in San Francisco and Star RV’s premium offerings, there is a motor home suited to any budget or traveling style. The branch here is closed on Sundays and public holidays, but is open Monday to Friday 9am to 4.30pm, and on Saturdays from 9am to noon. Drop offs must be made by 11am, and pick up times are between noon and 4pm, or between 9am and 11am on Saturdays. At just 6 miles away, this is one of the closest rental companies to Oakland Airport, and is just a 30 minute drive from San Francisco Airport. A taxi fare from the city or San Francisco Airport will cost approximately $140.
 

Jucy Rentals

Jucy Rentals offer modern vans with custom fit outs for comfortable travels. They hire to anyone with a license over the age of 21 and the campers come with a fridge, gas cooker, sink, DVD player, and sleeping space for up to four people. Without a bathroom on board, you’ll need to take this van to a campsite or RV park for accommodation. Jucy’s San Francisco office is located at 1620 Doolittle Drive in San Leandro about 30 miles from the International Airport, and just 3 miles from Oakland Airport, which will cost around $125 and $15 respectively. They are closed on Sundays and do pick ups 1pm to 3pm on weekdays and 9am to 11am on Saturdays.
 

Star Drive Rentals, Road Bear RV and Britz Campervans

All three are located at 420 San Leandro Boulevard, San Leandro, which is just 10 minutes by taxi to Oakland Airport and approximately 40 minutes to San Francisco Airport. Star Drive, Road Bear and Britz do not allow you to pick up your vehicle hire on the day you arrive overseas, so it is suggested you book a hotel or motel for your first night in the city. If you are flying in from a domestic US location, you can pick up on the same day. A complimentary shuttle service runs to various hotels around the city between 11am and 1pm, provided you give them a 72 hour minimum warning. Road Bear RV offers rentals from modern suppliers such as Coachman and Thor with Class C and Class A RVs, while Star Drive offers luxury models and Britz covers the basic family model. This depot is also less than 10 minutes from the nearest Walmart, so you can stock up before you hit the road.

 

San Francisco RV Rental Vacations

Get on the road in San Francisco and enjoy the fabulous Bay area and state of California with a rental RV. Having your own wheels will allow you to explore the Bay and head south to more fabulous coastal cities, or north into the Napa Valley wine country.
 

City on the Bay

One of America’s most iconic destinations, San Francisco is located on the west coast – north of Los Angeles and south of the Napa Valley. Not many cities have a song dedicated to them, but San Fran is more than worthy. 
 
It’s been described as a ‘roller-coaster ride of a city’, with so much to see and do. Landmarks, rolling hills and a remarkable multicultural population help to create this tourism favorite.

Lay Your Head

You can’t go far wrong at Union Square in the CBD. From Chancellor to the Grand Hyatt, the larger hotels are here. But brace yourselves, as it can be exceptionally busy all night long. Nearby Lombard Street has more inns and motels, but there are so many options. If you are travelling as a family, Fisherman’s Wharf is easily accessible by public transport and is a city in itself. There isn’t an abundance of hostels, but look in the CBD for options. Pacific Tradewinds Hostel, near Chinatown, has a good reputation. Find an RV park on the coast to park up a rental motorhome.

What’s On in San Francisco

Baseball is a unique institution in the USA – and opening day for the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park in April brings more than 100,000 locals out to play. And try the garlic fries. The Cherry Blossom Festival is in the same month and is a celebration of Japanese culture with music, food booths, dancing and much more.

A&T Park Motorhome Rental

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Parade (LGBT) is a two-day festival in June, with the best jazz music performers coming to town around late October-November. But overall, no matter what you do, the generally positive atmosphere will make any event a memorable one.

Are you hungry?

As you can imagine, it’s difficult to categorise the cuisine – other than to say virtually everything is on offer. New restaurants are opening regularly, while regular high-end spots such as Bar Tartine and Gary Danko continue to deliver. San Francisco prides itself on cultural variety, so bistros, bakeries and great cafes are commonplace. You won’t go hungry here.

Another booming craze is the microbrewery, with 21st Amendment and Anchor Brewing Company offering craft beer and an array of different alcoholic flavours.

History and People

San Francisco has embarked on a remarkable journey, beginning in 1776 when Spanish colonists landed. A gold rush, earthquakes and fire followed, creating the melting pot that exists today. 
 
San Fran is split into districts and regions, including Financial, Chinatown and Western Addition. The population stands at more than 800,000. White-collar workers used to be prevalent, but the high cost of living has influenced the demographic.

Get Out and About

It’s impossible to go past the two iconic tourism landmarks of San Francisco: The Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Spanning nearly 9000ft, the suspension bridge has been the background to numerous famous films and the new Bridge Plaza is all part of the visitor experience if you fancy a guided tour. Alcatraz Penitentiary still has mythical-type status, despite the fact it closed in 1963. Located on an island, it operates today as a museum and receives around 1.5 million visitors every year. 
 
Getting around on cable car is another top ten thing to do, along with the Exploratorium at the Palace of Fine Arts. It’s a scientific haven, with exhibits and programs – just so much to see and do in one place.

Trains and automobiles

Getting around San Francisco is pretty straightforward, with the Muni railway very popular. This works for both light rail and the subway. Cable cars are hugely popular and there are also intercity bus services. Rent a car or an RV for travelling at your own schedule.

Inner-city Transport with your San Francisco motorhome rental
 

A Pacific outlook

The weather forecast is strongly influenced by the nearby Pacific Ocean, with an average high of 20-21 degrees in summer, while winters dip to around eight degrees. Summers can be dry, but there’s nothing too extreme. In terms of what to wear, layers could be the option.

Plan Your RV Rental San Francisco Roadtrip

San Francisco - it’s one of those names that either makes everyone say that they’ve already been there (and loved it), or can’t wait to go. Simply not going to San Francisco at some point in life just doesn’t seem to be an option. It’s a city of endless entertainment, whether that’s through music, sporting, cultural and foodie events or year-round attractions such as the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and cable cars. Whether you’re passing through on an epic American road trip or starting out with an RV rental in San Francisco and driving out from there, you’ll need plenty of time to see what needs to be seen in this city. Read on for all the useful information and links you need to plan your trip, and take a look at the On The Road tab on the right for info on local rest areas, campervan campsites and dumpstations.
 

Itineraries From San Francisco

 

Could there be anything more exciting than a massive itinerary at your fingertips, laying out the massive number of world-renowned attractions, cities and events you’re about to experience? We doubt it. Just picture that feeling of getting in the driver’s seat ready to make a start on your tour - now start planning. Here are a few of the best itinerary ideas for San Francisco and its surrounding areas that you can use as a little inspiration to get you started. 
 
Mixed bag doesn’t even begin to cover the multitude of spaces you’ll cover on a road trip from Salt Lake City in Utah to San Francisco on the Californian coast. The views out your window will change from sparse alien-like landscapes and bizarre salt flats to the majesty of the Grand Canyon then the busy art hubs of San Francisco. Or, you could always pick up a San Francisco RV rental and do it the other way around!
 
Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Los Angeles, San Francisco - these are some of the biggest names in US travel, and you’ll see them all (and more) on this roundabout road trip that takes you the awesome way rather than the quick way. The contrasting sights of the wild open spaces and the always-on cities will keep you on your toes and your finger on the shutter button of your camera. 
 
The Main Street of any town tends to be the place with the best sights, tastes and attractions of the city. So when you drive down the Main Street of America on Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles, you’ll get a hearty filling of all things USA. While the route doesn’t technically take you all the way to San Francisco, you could easily add on the final few hours in your RV rental up the Californian coast to add this dynamic city to your itinerary. 
 
Salt Lake City is an ideal place to start your Burning Man road trip, as you can begin your adventure long before you cross Nevada to become a temporary resident of Black Rock City. Experience the madness and excitement that typify this annual celebration of humanity, then finish your holiday with a drive over to San Francisco with your campervan.
 
The Burning Man Festival is, without doubt, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Nowhere and nothing else on the planet offers such a party with the festive vibe, community spirit and eco-friendly goals as Burning Man. That’s why it’s made it onto our Bucket List of road trips, and why you should definitely book a camper rental in San Francisco to get yourself there. 
 
There’s nothing that says ‘holiday’ like time spent on a coastline, and - you guessed it - San Francisco and the Californian Coast are right up there are one of the best coastline road trips on the planet. You can start or finish your itinerary in your San Francisco Motorhome Hire in this town, but where you go from there is completely up to you. 

 

San Francisco & Surrounds Events

 

There are more events and things to experience in San Francisco than there are in some entire states. This city offers an endless array of experiences, from some of the biggest sporting matches in the country, to incredible cultural festivals that reflect the town’s diversity and acceptance. Of course, this Californian city also knows how to put on a feast, which is why there are so many food and wine events in and around San Fran. And finally, the music scene adds another reason to book RV rentals in San Francisco throughout the year, as there is an endless string of concerts and performances featuring some of the most well-known names in music throughout the year. 
 
Burning Man

A temporary city, a community without financial transactions, a party in the desert - the Burning Man is many things, but most of all, it’s a Bucket List experience not to be missed. This epic festival attracts thousands of free spirited people with minds as open as they are curious, where they get together and spend one week dressing up, partying and sharing resources before burning a giant effigy at the end of the festival. Many people use RV rentals in San Francisco, so be sure to book early to lock in your set of wheels that will get you there. Refer to the guides by our expert writers below to learn more about this fantastic event:
 


Sport
 
The Ryder Cup

Held once every two years, the Ryder Cup is an ongoing golfing battle between Europe and the United States. Minnesota’s Hazeltine National Golf Club will host the event in 2016, after which it will travel back to Europe in 2018 and so on. It’s a great excuse to grab a motorhome and take a road trip to see this epic competition for the Cup - and more importantly, for the glory. Take a look at a piece on the Ryder Cup put together by the Motorhome Republic team - RVs and Golf, a Match Made in Holiday Heaven: Ryder Cup and Beyond.
 
The Superbowl

The championship NFL game in American football has become such an event that many Americans consider it an unofficial holiday, and it’s regularly the most watched television event in the country. For those who can make it to the game in person, everything from the atmosphere to the legendary half-time show and the actual game itself make this a once-in-a-lifetime event. The 2017 match will be held in the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, which also happens to be a great city to add to any road trip itinerary. Follow the link here to find out more on the Superbowl 50 and how you can make it an RV rental adventure!
 
Levi’s Stadium

While you’re in town, you can also check out Levi’s Stadium, which is the home of the local football team - the San Francisco 49ers. It’s one of the most high-tech sporting facilities on the planet, and recently hosted the Superbowl 50 match. There are massive sporting events and concerts held here throughout the year, so be sure to check if anything’s on when you visit with your RV hire in San Francisco.
 
AT&T Park

San Fran’s other major sports stadium is AT&T Park, home to the local baseball team, the San Francisco Giants. Located right on the waterfront, this venue offers awesome views at any game, and even if there’s nothing happening here while you’re visiting, you can take a guided tour for back-stage access to players areas and other places you would not usually see. 


Arts & Culture
 
Cherry Blossom Festival

The Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco proves that you don’t have to be in Japan to enjoy this celebration of springtime’s prettiest pink blooms. Usually held over two weekends every April, the event brings together Japanese and American culture, with performances, music, food and more. 
 
Folsom Street Fair

What attracts more than 400,000 people, covers 13 of San Francisco’s city blocks, lasts just one day in September and can call itself the biggest fetish and leather celebration in the world? The Folsom Street Fair, held in the only place where such an event should be held. There are more than 200 exhibitors each year, each bringing a variety of products such as sex toys, clothing, accessories and more. This is an extremely welcoming community, so don’t let your nerves get the better of your curiosity and head along!
 
Santacon

Yes, Santacon is exactly what it sounds like it is - only better. This annual event is an excuse for thousands of people to dress up in Santa Claus outfits (or other festive characters) and go on a city-wide pub crawl. It’s also known as Santapalooza, the Santa Rampage, and Santarchy, and while it’s now in more than 50 countries around the world, it all started right here in San Francisco in 1994.


Food & Wine
 
Napa Valley Wines

There are few regions as well known and respected in wines as Napa Valley. Only 1.5 hours north of San Francisco, this valley is home to no less than 400 wineries, plus a multitude of restaurants, spas and attractions to complete your trip. You could get lost amongst the vineyards and drive around in your San Francisco campervan hire for weeks simply tasting your way from one cellar door to the next, so give yourselves plenty of time for exploring if you love a good vino.  
 
San Francisco Food Tours

One of the most fun parts of exploring a new city is discovering its foodie scene, but it can also be one of the hardest, too. When you’re short on time, and you want a quick way to find the best restaurants, bars and cafes, get yourselves onto one of the city’s food tours. There are several great options that will provide you with all of this info, as well as history on the area, and a few great tastings along the way. 
 
Food and Wine Festival

Late in August every year, San Francisco delivers its best in food, wine, beer, and spirits in a world-class event that will get yours mouth watering and your eyes picking out your next treat. Take classes, watch demonstrations, visit restaurants, and eat, drink and be merry to your heart’s content. 


Music
 
Treasure Island Music Festival

Treasure Island is a piece of artificial land sitting in the San Francisco bay, and it’s the site of an annual music festival that runs for two days in October. Day one is all about hip hop, rap and electronica, while day two is dedicated to indie rock and rock. Many of the headlining acts are world-famous, such as Gorgon City and Deadmau5. 
 
Outside Lands

If you love music and being eco-friendly, the Outside Lands music festival could be the perfect event. Initiatives such as a refillable water program (to reduce bottle use), a farmer’s market and gardening workshops all run alongside a list of some of the biggest names in music. In 2015, headlining acts included Elton John, Sam Smith, and the Black Keys.
 
Lost Highway

The Lost Highway Motorcycle Show and Concert is a massive festival for bikers, bike lovers, and rock fans. There’s plenty of live music, with charity rides, art exhibits, and a motorcycle show across two days in July each year in San Bernardino. As a bonus, there’s a massive campground on site, making it a perfect place to visit with your San Francisco RV rental. 
 
Bottlerock

Take a short 2-hour drive from San Fran to Napa Valley for this five-day music festival in May. It’s still in its infancy, with the inaugural year only in 2013, but this event is already attracting crowds of more than 100,000 people, and world-class acts such as Ben Harper and Joan Jett. 
 
Coachella

One of the biggest music festivals on the planet is Coachella, and it’s held down in Indio, California, roughly a full-day’s drive from San Francisco. The event covers a number of genres from hip hop to electronica, and includes art sculptures, and is rare in that it offers the same lineups two weekends in a row so that even more people can make the trip. 

 

Activities in San Francisco & Local Cali Area

 

In between all the itineraries and the events, don’t forget that San Francisco and the surrounding Californian landscape has activities and attractions that could take weeks to explore just by themselves. There are iconic monuments known all over the world, as well as epic natural scenery and everything in between. Make a list of all the things you want to see then set about ticking them off for a memorable and incredibly busy San Francisco tour! 
 
Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is not just San Francisco’s main icon, but it’s also a universally recognised structure around the world. This suspension bridge attracts roughly 10 million visitors every year, and you can see it by taking a bike across, walking, or driving over it. 
 
Alcatraz

It’s a name that inspired fear into the hearts of many as a federal prison for the worst criminals in the country from 1934 to 1963. Nicknamed ‘The Rock’, no prisoner ever managed to escape this island fortress, and you’ll be able to see why when you take a boat ride out and tour the structure during your visit to San Francisco. 
 
Chinatown

If you’ve ever wondered where the largest Chinatown outside of China is, this is your answer. San Fran’s Chinatown is also the oldest in the US, and is packed with stores, restaurants, parks and squares across 24 blocks in the downtown city area. The two main roads, Grant Avenue and Stockton Street, are two of the best places to simply stroll and explore. 
 
California Academy of Sciences

There are more than 26 million species housed in the natural museum at California Academy of Sciences. Covering 400,000 square feet, it’s both one of the newest and largest in the country. This isn’t your fussy, boring museum either, it houses an aquarium, a planetarium and a rainforest as just a few of the fantastic exhibits. 
 
Cable Cars

There are many places in the world that use cable cars, but none so recognisable as those in San Francisco. This is largely because this city is where innovator Andrew Smith Hallidae first thought up the idea and tested the very first system back in 1873. You can ride the cars and enjoy the views (in far more modern versions) in San Fran today. 
 
National Parks

San Francisco is found right in the middle of a smattering of unbelievable National Parks. To the northeast, the Rockies (the Rocky Mountains) stretch from British Columbia in Canada right down through the states, and you can visit them at countless points with a San Francisco motorhome hire. The Yosemite National Park is a little closer, just three hours east by campervan, and is known for its beautiful waterfalls. Finally, Yellowstone National Park is a long drive away in Wyoming (mostly), but makes for an incredible road trip from San Francisco. Check out this piece by the Motorhome Republic team on experiencing Yellowstone in an RV Rental.
 
Muir Woods National Monument and Sausalito

The Muir Woods are the world’s most visited redwood park, and are a gorgeous place for an afternoon or day spent exploring these massive, beautiful trees just a little out of Sausalito. Sausalito is the small, arty community on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco city. It’s ideal for a bite to eat, a spot of shopping or a vino as you watch the sun go down in the bay. 
 
Sonoma County Wine Region

Drive two hours north of San Francisco and indulge in the bountiful Sonoma County Wine Region. Known for its divine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the area has more than 500 wineries just waiting for you to drop by and taste their finest products. 
 
Halfmoon Bay

Day trips don’t get much better than this - Half Moon Bay is just 45 minutes in a RV rental from the city and offers a world away from the bustle of San Fran. Between the beach (that you can ride horses on), the golf course, and the shops and restaurants in the small township, you can easily while away a day or two in bliss. 
 
Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is roughly 3.5 hours northeast of San Francisco, and is the largest alpine lake in North America. It crosses the border between California and Nevada and is popular throughout summer for hikers, bikers, and kayakers, then throughout winter as well when the ski season sets in and it becomes a leading snowsports destination. 
 
Big Sur

Follow the coastline roughly three hours south of San Francisco and you’ll reach Big Sur, a popular attraction for its rugged coastline and rich history. The Bixby Creek Bridge is one of the iconic structures in this area, as it traverses a canyon right in front of the crashing waves of the coast. Head on down from San Fran in your campervan rental from Motorhome Republic.
