Set on the banks of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, Suisun is a small city near Fairfield, an hour’s drive northeast of San Francisco. It is named after the adjacent bay, which in turn was named after the Native American tribe Suisunes that once lived in the area. The city came about around the time gold was discovered in California, as it offered an ideal staging place for commerce and transportation between Sacramento and San Francisco via the Suisun Slough. Today, when you book an RV in Suisun City, CA you will be surrounded by soothing agricultural landscape, rustic wine country and hints of Cape Cod charm without the crowds, all within a day trip away from some of California’s grandest parks and scenic drives.
With your motorhome rental in Suisun City, you're only a two-hour drive away from the Sierra Nevada range, which means you can plan an overnight or a weekend getaway to Yosemite, Sequoia or Kings Canyon National Parks. Depending on how much time you have, you can visit just one park, or do all three in one multi-day journey.
While the towering sequoias are the star attraction at Sequoia National Park, don't overlook other attractions such as the Crystal Cave, the Moro Rock, Grand Sentinel and Obelisk for rock climbing, and Mt. Whitney for climbing. Hundreds of miles of trails crisscross the park, and you can plan a day hike or two on Cedar Grove Trails, Giant Forest and Lodgepole trails, and Mineral Kings Trail.
Just next to Sequoia lies the Kings Canyon National Park. Drive your Suisun City travel trailer rental along the Generals Highway which connects the two parks, and from the road marvel at their celebrated stands of massive sequoia groves. Several pullouts along the way allow you to admire the view or access trailheads. For more impressive views of Kings Canyon, drive down the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway, all on Highway 180. The two-lane highway, a cliff-hugging road cut into granite, skirts the banks of the thundering Kings River, and snakes down into Kings Canyon, one of the deepest in North America. Consider stopping at Boyden Cavern for a guided walking tour, or Grizzly Falls for a photogenic view in spring/summer.
A visit to the Yosemite National Park is a must, so plan on driving the Majestic Mountain Loop if you wish to include the other two national parks. You certainly can spend more than one day at each park, especially at Yosemite, but the drive usually takes over a period of three days, so put your Suisun City camper rental to good use. After a requisite stop at the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, which contains behemoth trees close to 2,000 years old, take in a sweeping view of the Yosemite Valley, Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, and the Yosemite high country from Glacier Point. You’ll likely stay a night here, so take advantage of a park shuttle to take you to this commanding lookout.
Conversely, look west for another cliff-hugging journey on the Pacific Coast Highway starting from San Francisco. The road winds down south near San Diego, with many iconic stops along the way including Monterey, Big Sur, Ventura, and Malibu, to name a few.
You can find one of the nearest campgrounds for your Suisun City rental RV in Vacaville, 10 miles north of town. There's also one near Travis Air Force Base about 10 miles northeast that is open only to members of the military and their families. Widen your search to within 25 miles and you'll run into several campgrounds in Vallejo, Rio Vista, and Napa.
Staying in national parks is another option, given the abundance of campgrounds open in season. While most sites do not offer water or electric hookups, most have potable water available and seasonal dump stations. The majority of nearby stores and gas stations, on approach to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks via Hwy 180 and Hwy 198, are in Fresno and Visalia.
As a city on the waterfront, Suisun City offers plenty of water-based activities for nature lovers and water sports enthusiasts. Admire beautiful views from the waterfront promenade, or sample a variety of ethnic cuisine in the historic Waterfront District. Follow the banks of the Suisun Bay on two wheels, or wander through the farm fields and quiet country roads of the California Delta in your Suisun City RV rental. Kayaking, fishing, bird watching, and boating are popular activities on the marsh. Cast a line from the fishing pier or motor over to Grizzly Island for fantastic bird watching opportunities. For more watchable wildlife, scope out the open space of Rush Ranch where more than 120 bird and 15 mammal species have been sighted.
In the late 1860s, the First Transcontinental Railroad came to town, and connected downtown Suisun City to the California Pacific Railroad and beyond. Today, you can relive history on an interurban ride operated by the Western Railway Museum aboard a combination of regional interurban railway cars.
For art lovers, there are paintings, pottery, jewelry, and 3D pieces to view at Lawler House Gallery. Also, keep an eye out for quirky metal sculptures by Phillip Glashoff scattered around the Suisun Valley. Take the Fairfield and Suisun Transit (FAST) bus to Fairfield for a brewery tour or wine tasting tour at local cellars. Suisun Valley's wines are rustic and mostly made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. If you wish to compare varietals, the celebrated vineyards of Napa County are just to the west.
Experience a slice of California that, like its marsh, ebbs and flows with time but remains true to its natural character. Then let your search for an RV rental in Suisun City lead you to the wild spaces and breathtaking places that the Golden State is known for.
