Start your tour with the 49-Mile Drive marked with blue-and white seagull signs. Be prepared to dine well: San Francisco has more than 3,000 restaurants. Most rate from good to terrific, with an emphasis on fresh ingredients – the hallmark of California cuisine.
Welcome to shopper’s heaven. The major department stores around Union Square and scores of specialty shops along Post Street and in the Embarcadero Center will tempt you. For fun plus good views, catch a cable car up Powell Street or California Street to Nob Hill, Chinatown, or Fisherman’s Wharf. Or, zoom to the top of the Bank of America Building to see the fog come in beneath you.
Here, two ethnic enclaves exist side by side. Stroll Grant Avenue amid Chinese-style buildings, housing, restaurants and shops. North of Broadway is North Beach, known as Little Italy. Explore the cafés and bookstores.
Stroll Fisherman’s Wharf savoring a fresh crab cocktail while you watch the fishermen put their boats in order. Nearby Ghirardelli Square and the neighboring Cannery both offer a myriad of shops and restaurants. Board the numerous historic sailing ships at Hyde Street Pier. At Pier 39, enjoy the sea lions, shops, restaurants, street performers, and a brand-new aquarium. Cruise to Alcatraz to tour ‘the Rock,’ a notorious former prison. Or, board a ferry to Vallejo and Marine World Africa USA.

Camp-California is concerned about the health and safety of our campers and adventurers. While camping and outdoor activities do offer the ability to self-isolate, we are encouraging all California residents and travelers to shelter in place until further notice. We recognize that getting outdoors is what you do best, and we will be here to reacquaint you with nature once we're cleared for adventure again!
Most private parks are open with 14-day minimums. If you are a full-time RVer looking to shelter in place, a member of the traveling medical profession, or a utility worker looking for a park please call our office and we can connect you with an appropriate location.
