Discover San Jose, CA

With the Bay Area to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the east, renting an RV in San Jose, California, lets you make the most of your vacation. San Jose was California’s first settlement and its original capitol and is the current largest city in Northern California. The city is full of quirks: check out the largest skate park in California at Alum Rock, visit the most interesting haunted house in the world, and or play on a life-sized monopoly board in a downtown park. It’s easy to get a tan from the California sunshine by visiting one (or several!) of the beaches, state parks, or national parks around the area. Search for an RV in San Jose, CA, and extend your trip to visit the majestic Redwoods, awe-inspiring Half Dome, or relaxing wine country.  

The Great Outdoors

San Jose is in the Bay Area, right off the coast. Rent an RV by owner in San Jose and drive along the famous Highway 1 to find the perfect beach and take in the view of the rocky cliffs and impossibly blue ocean waves. Head southwest to visit Shark Fin Cove in Davenport, and camp overnight in the breathtaking Big Basin Redwoods State Park. If you can’t get enough of the beaches and redwoods, continue south to Pfeiffer Big Sur Campground, which is a 15-minute drive to Pfeiffer Beach, and stay there a few days. Pinnacles National Park is in that area, formed 23 million years ago by a volcanic explosion which left behind looming spires of rock and talus caves. Novice and advanced climbers will find routes to both challenge and inspire them, and hikers can find everything from quick and easy trails to longer hikes that wind from the grasslands to the caves.

There are numerous state parks closer to the city, including Alum Rock Park with its mineral springs and native wildlife (lucky hikers might get to see mountain lions or bobcats – but please, respect their space and keep your distance). Head north towards San Francisco to visit McNee Ranch State Park, known for its hilly hikes and ocean views. On the opposite side of the Bay is Rock City Park, with holey rock faces and stunning panoramic views. Adventure seekers will want to trek east in their San Jose RV rental and drive to Yosemite National Park. You’ll find granite mountains, glassy lakes, waterfalls, forests, and the iconic Half Dome. You can see the sights from your luxury San Jose RV rental on the Yosemite auto-touring routes, or plan a picnic and kick back to take it all in.

RV Parks

Most of the state and national parks around the area have campgrounds where you can stay in your San Jose camper rental. You can fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves at the Half Moon Bay State Beach campgrounds, which allow trailers and campers up to 40 feet long. There are also several beach campsites along Monterey Bay, including the Santa Cruz/ Monterey Bay KOA Holiday, Seacliff Center RV Park, or Sunset State Beach campground. Nothing beats winding down from a day full of exploration like relaxing in the sand watching the sun set over the Pacific.

There are several options for RVers to stay closer to the city as well. Camp out in your RV rental in San Jose, California, at Coyote Valley RV Resort in one of their deluxe sites with electric, free WiFi and satellite TV, and recycling and trash pickup at your site. You can also take advantage of the pool, putting green, and laundry and fitness centers. Morgan Hill RV Resort has tons of activities on site, including mini golf, volleyball, a tennis court, a pool, and a dog park, and they are surrounded by vineyards. Nearby Uvas Pines RV Park is nestled in scenic wooded foothills, with spacious RV sites, trails, and open land. Campers will also enjoy Santa Cruz Ranch RV Resort which is pet-friendly and backs up to nature trails.

To get around in San Jose, you can park your RV rental at the Walmart on Story Rd and hop right on to the VTA bus system to get wherever you need to go in San Jose. They have light rails and community buses that make transportation around the city quite easy. You can even avoid traffic by taking the Caltrain up to San Francisco for the day.

Explore the City

San Jose has tons to see and do for every age. The Tech Museum of Innovation is a must-see, as you are in the “Capitol of Silicon Valley”. Their exhibits showcase the incredible ways technology shapes our lives. There are great art and history museums in the area, most notably the San Jose Museum of art and the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, which has the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in western North America. The Children’s Discovery Museum is perfect for families with playful children, and families with older kids won’t want to miss out on visiting the Winchester Mystery House (you can park your RV in the lot across the street). The owner was instructed that she could not stop building or else thousands of spirits would haunt her, so the mansion has 160 rooms, 47 fireplaces, 3 elevators, 10,000 panes of glass, and some pretty spooky stories!  

San Jose also has a ton of great options for restaurants and breweries, and the San Pedro Square Market is a hub for both food and live outdoor entertainment. The city has a vibrant arts scene and every summer hosts a weekend of open studios where the public can see works from hundreds of artists. When exploring, be sure to head out to Japantown; the iconic area has traditional shops, vibrant celebrations, and of course, incredible cuisine. Historic neighborhoods in San Jose include the Rose Garden and Willow Glen, where you can shop at boutiques and dine at open-air restaurants.
