Recommendations

San Diego is full of beautiful beaches. We recommend grabbing a site at Carlsbad state Beach for surfing, biking, and comfortable temps. Remember no A/C in this vintage VW. The winter months {November-March} we encourage heading East to explore Anza Borrego State Park. The landscape is endless and we have had some of our most memorable trips our there. Let us know what you are looking for and we'd be happy to chat and help you find a great adventure!

Other things to note

You are looking at a "30 something" VW van full of original parts and full of some modern parts. This combo is what provides the vintage experience but with the protection of modern & safer driving.
