San Pablo is a city in Contra Costa County, California, but it is almost entirely surrounded by the city of Richmond, which perhaps lends the city an aura of anonymity. It is based around a post office which was established in 1854; San Pablo was incorporated much later in 1948. The city lies on top of a sedimentary plain that stretches from Berkeley Hills to San Pablo Bay, although the city limits don't extend all the way to the shoreline. Some notable celebrities who live in or are from San Pablo include former MLB outfielder Gene Clines and guitarist Gary Holt (from the heavy metal bands Slayer and Exodus).
Search for an RV in Contra Costa County and you have your choice from a vast number of RV types and models, all perfectly suited to the Californian environment and lifestyle. There are some other towns and cities that might be of interest to travelers in this area. For example, Vallejo was named after General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, who was one of the first members of the (U.S.) California State Senate (a neighboring city, Benicia, was named after his wife). Martinez has three international sister cities: Dunbar, Scotland; Hanchuan, China; and Stresa, Italy. Lafayette has a strong investment in the arts, with a public art collection, an art and wine festival, and summer jazz workshop, both held annually, and much more. Alameda city is located in Alameda County, on Alameda Island. San Rafael began as a ranch town around the Mission San Rafael Arcángel and was later invigorated by the arrival of the railroad. Your San Pablo RV rental is how you explore the geography and history of this area.
Mount Tamalpais Watershed is part of the Marin Municipal Water District and is a major source of domestic water.

Point Reyes National Seashore is a natural sanctuary reserve, sheltering over 1,500 plant and animal species; it is also a managed recreational area, allowing hiking and cycling, kayaking, and much more. The park stretches from the coastal area where ocean breakers crash into rocks to open grassland, brush-covered hillsides and forested ridges. Depending on the season, visitors can witness elephant seals on the nearby beaches, informational guided hikes by volunteers who are cataloging mushroom species or simply picnic or camp overnight.
Mount Diablo State Park is a popular area for hiking, nature viewing, and photography. It is a managed outdoor recreational area that was established in 1851.

On a clear day, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge and beyond from the summit; cycling and horseback riding are also allowed.
