SoCal Beaches Tour

We had a great time visiting Southern California in the middle of winter. I hope you enjoy reading about our tour of Pismo Beach, Ventura, Huntington Beach, and San Diego.

This was our first "long" for us RV trip since we've retired, and we are already planning several more!

CA is a great state for RV'g (we live in the Sacramento area).

I agree, and Sacramento is a great base, with good access to the beaches and mountains.

Haha! Who knows, maybe they are following winnieowners.com. :-)

I have to say our Adventurer worked great the entire trip.

Thank you for Southern CA itinerary ideas!

I live in Colorado and Iím looking for ideas to spend 3-4 weeks on the road in January/February. Considering Texas, Arizona, and Southern CA. Can you give me an idea of high and low temperatures? You mentioned rain which I can deal with but wondering about freezing pipes etc.

In California, it's all about altitude. Unless you're in the mountains you don't need to be concerned about freezing pipes, etc. By and large, temperatures will be fairly moderate.
Now, rain storms, etc. are another issue altogether. This may help:

BobC is right, it rarely freezes, but it is the rainy season. Still we had sunshine mixed with the rain. Occasionally the temperature may drop into the freezing range, but usually for a short time. We live on the north end of CA in the San Francisco Bay Area, and in seven years we have never winterized. I have sometimes put a small heater in the basement just to be safe.

January in So. Cal might see mid-30's temps at the coldest part of the night AT SEA LEVEL, but there's also a good chance mountain passes and campgrounds might be snowed out. (5000', 6000', etc.)

It does rain a bit. In the past years (during a long drought) this meant a light misting, perhaps a thunderstorm that lasts for less than an hour. This year, we've actually had respectable rain that went on for multiple days, so I cannot promise what you'll see in years to come.


Daytime temps are just about perfect: mid-70's/high 60's at sea level.


So. Cal in the winter actually turns green. The grass has a chance to recover from the summer heat.



If you find yourself near San Diego, you should know that they may very well have the most perfect weather on the entire planet, year round.
