Discover Vista

Experience the Sites and Scenery

Vista does not disappoint on the outdoor scenery front. The surrounding parks and nature preserves are hikers’ havens. Most of the county parks are all about bringing your canine friends out to enjoy the landscape too, so if you’ve got a dog along for the ride in your Vista rental by owner camper or RV, get out there and play. Del Dios Highlands Preserve, located about 15 miles Southeast of Vista, is a choice natural playground for those slightly more advanced in their hiking skills. A rigorous trek up a mountain is rewarded with stunning 360° views of the surrounding treescapes and waterways below. Wilderness Garden Preserve is another magnificent park easily accessed about 25 miles Northeast of Vista. With mostly flat trails, benches, and picnic tables, this 700-acre preserve is a great destination for families and nature lovers. Once inside, visitors can relish in the peacefulness of the park and enjoy casual exploration and maybe even some relaxation. When sticking close to the city in your RV rental in Vista, the Buena Vista Park is a fun place to slow down and rest awhile. Yet another opportunity for hiking lies within this park, along with the potential for some action-packed duck observing at the pond. These are just a few of the many parks and preserves in the area, so without a doubt, the outdoorsy traveler will have no trouble finding something to explore.

City Attractions

The city of Vista is packed to the brim with places to visit when on your camper rental vacation. Brengle Terrace Park is a must-see, housing both the Alta Vista Botanical Gardens and the Moonlight Outdoor Amphitheater. The Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum might spark some interest in those with an inclination for history and industry. The Farmer’s Market is a fun stop to get a taste of the local produce and maybe stock up the motorhome rental for the next few campfire cookouts.

What’s Unique

The art and culture that embodies Vista can be found all around the city. The Broadway Theater and the Moonlight Outdoor Amphitheater both feature Broadway-quality musical productions throughout the year. Various forms of local artists’ masterpieces can be viewed in multiple galleries and some work can be seen displayed at quite a few other sites around the town. If you’re looking to get involved with some microbrew sampling during your RV rental vacation in Vista, you’ve found the right place. With over 15 breweries to choose from, you should expect to leave Vista as an expert in the local brews.

Where to Park It

There are quite a few highly rated private RV parks in the area. Most offer full hookups, swimming pools, free WiFi and are welcoming to dogs. If you’re looking for a more rustic experience, a stay at Del Dios Highlands Preserve may fit the bill. Guajome County Park is also a valid option. The 500-acre park offers campsites and is home to a National Historic Landmark known as the Rancho Guajome Adobe. This historic hacienda was built in the 1850s and is a great representation of Mexican colonial architecture. Of course, there’s always Walmart, too. This one is located on the Southeast end of town, off of Highway 78. And as always, never hesitate to research the ever-evolving free campsite options in the area.

The Food

There are quite a few local and chain grocery stores around the area, so it should be pretty easy to pop over to one in the Vista RV rental and pick up some supplies. Attention Italian food lovers: Vista has an extremely wide variety of Italian restaurants and pizzerias. And Italian isn’t the only type with decent representation in the restaurant scene. There are some quality Mexican and Asian cuisine establishments around, too. And did we mention the breweries?

Take in some sunny California vibes when you book an RV rental in Vista. Offering a unique balance of nature, culture and fun city living, Vista has something for everyone on the camper rental trip.
