Experience the best of the Golden State on our suggested California motorhome holiday. The freedom of the open road and not having to be anywhere at any special time is the appeal of this type of holiday. We have recommended campsites and suggested an itinerary that isn't too heavy on driving time, but it's up to you how structured or not your motorhome holiday is.
Price per person includes:
Distance: 215 miles
Transfer to the motorhome depot to collect your vehicle. You will be shown an instructional video to help familiarize yourself with your RV and a professional staff member will show you around the vehicle, answer any questions and provide driving guidelines. You will also receive a full instruction manual regarding every aspect of your motorhome.
Now it's time to hit the road - Route 101 to be exact. This area of California is referred to as The American Riviera. Be sure to stop at the fabulous vistas and beaches en route to your overnight stop in Santa Margarita.

From sunset cruises to surf lessons, wine tastings to harbour-front promenades – you’ll be taken with the unique personality of Newport Beach. Often host to Film Festivals and Jazz events, it's worth checking a local events calendar for your actual travel dates.
Our suggested camp for the night is Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort and Marina. This 110-acre resort at the entrance to Back Bay Nature Preserve is a gem. The kids will enjoy a playground on the beach or set sail with a boat rental.
Enjoy breakfast, then it's just a short 30 mile drive back to the depot to return your motorhome. En route, be sure to stop at Huntington Beach (AKA Surf City USA) to watch the surfers or Long Beach to explore the historic Queen Mary which is docked there.
Today is your last day before your flight back home, however, your adventure doesn't have to end here. Perhaps you may want to extend your stay and fly onto Las Vegas for a few days or maybe include a city stopover in New York City or Boston.
