Livingston is a city in Merced County, California. It was incorporated in 1922 but was first settled as early as 1862. It was named after the famous doctor who had disappeared and whose name was in the newspapers at the time; the community's name was later shortened when an application for a post office misspelled the name, dropping the final “e”. It has historically been a farming community but gained notoriety when Bill Dalton, an infamous western outlaw, was given refuge from Kansas authorities by Cyrus Bliven, whose daughter had married Dalton. In more recent times, it has gained recognition for its vineyards, sweet potato crops, and almonds, as well as its diversity.

RV rentals in Merced County are your best choice for creating a memorable vacation in this area. There are other cities of interest that might be worth visiting too, such as Modesto, which is the heartland of the almond industry. Mariposa was named by Gabriel Moraga, a Mexican Army lieutenant, in 1806, after seeing a swarm of butterflies on a nearby river (now named Mariposa Creek; Mariposa is Spanish for “butterfly”). Merced is home to one of the University of California campuses, UC Merced, which opened in 2005. Chowchilla was named after a local tribe of Native Americans, whose name became a byword for “bravery”. Los Banos is named after a local hot spring (the name is Spanish for “the baths”). Your Livingston travel trailer rental is the only invitation you need to explore these and other places.

The Great Outdoors

Henry W. Coe State Park is one of the largest state parks in Northern California. It is a recreational preserve open to the public for a variety of activities such as hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and more. Backpackers will enjoy the moderately difficult trails while picnickers and photographers will enjoy the natural surroundings. The park consists of lofty ridges, steep canyons, and oak savanna tree stands. It is open to camping, accessible by car, and the volunteer organization that manages the park offers guided tours. It is also home to numerous animal species including mountain lions. Your Livingston camper rental is the perfect photography blind for capturing images of this wonderful environment.

San Luis National Wildlife Refuge is a combined wetland and grasslands preserve, providing sanctuary to a variety of plant and animal species. Many of these species, such as the San Joaquin kit fox, are endangered. Wildlife observers visiting the area can use any of the three auto tour routes that dissect the park and offer a glimpse of what is there. The refuge contains numerous stands of tree species, like valley oak, cottonwood, and willow. It has a visitors center where guests can view interactive exhibits explaining the wildlife and habitat. Keep your Livingston RV rental on hand for a post-activity coffee and take some photos with your RV in the foreground.

Yosemite National Park is also a short distance from Livingston and is an iconic American park located in the High Sierra Mountains. It was established in 1864 and is most famous for its waterfalls, but visitors will also find ancient stands of giant sequoias, expansive meadows and deep valleys, and much, much more. Popular activities within the park include backpacking and hiking, rock climbing, winter sports, and others; the park is open all year round.

Exploring The City

There are a lot of things to do around Livingston, such as taking in the museums and art galleries. One museum, dedicated to local history, has both indoor and outdoor displays and a canoe that children can get into. There are theaters where patrons can watch live Broadway-style plays and other entertainments. A casino bar allows visitors can play the slot machines, darts, or a game of pool while relaxing over a drink.

There is a good supply of restaurants, about equally commercial fast food enterprises and locally owned and operated businesses and the choices are good. Customers can choose from seafood and diner-style home cooking, Mexican, Chinese and more. One of the pizzerias has a game room for kids; if you eat here, try the chicken salad or the fried chicken. Another venue, specializing in Mexican food, offers large portions at reasonable prices. Try the Pollo a la parrilla (chicken breast with green sauce) and enjoy it on their outdoor patio.

If quiet and solitude are what you're after, consider preparing your own home-cooked meal in your Livingston luxury RV rental. Local grocery outlets can provide whatever you need, and nothing ever really matches your taste preferences the way your cooking does. Sit outside your home-on-wheels in lawn chairs, enjoying the night sky and uninterrupted conversation. This is how vacation memories are created.
