Costa Mesa RV rentals make getting to, and staying on, the beach easy and affordable, and Cruise America has a rental center right there! While the town is not actually touching the water, Costa Mesa is just minutes from the beach. But before you apply the sun tan lotion and grab the skim board, take a little time to enjoy the town of Costa Mesa and what it has to offer. For instance, you could drop by Tewinkle Park, otherwise known as the "Angels' Playground." This is a great opportunity for you and your family to enjoy some leisure time together. The numerous lakes, waterfalls and waterfowl provide the perfect setting for a relaxing stroll, as well as playful adventures for the kids. Pack a lunch and have a picnic under the massive covered picnic area. If Fido happens to be with you, there is a bark park with plenty of space for your four-legged friend to frolic! From the park you can load up the gang in your rental RV and head to some of the other attractions the town has to offer, such as the Teatro Zinzanni or the Orange County performing Arts Center. If shopping is in the mix, you can get some in at the South Coast Plaza or the OC Mix. You could pass by Herve Leger for one of their signature bandage dresses or stop into Christian Louboutin for your elegant shoe-shopping fix.
Once you decide to venture out of Costa Mesa, you needn't travel far because in every direction there are California attractions to see and experience.
Newport Beach is just an 8-minute drive west to the coast. There you can explore the Newport Landing Boardwalk, where you can take in the rays as you explore the beaches as well as the many shops and restaurants of one of California's best and top-ranked boardwalks. The views are stupendous, and the people watching alone provides nonstop entertainment. There are even whale watching tours available. If you happen to be there during the holiday season, the spectacular Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade of Lights is a priceless experience.
Just off the coast of the Newport Beach area is Balboa Island. It is a marine recreation center for the entire family. You can get there two ways; you can drive there in about a half-hour, or you can hop aboard the ferry, which only takes about five minutes. Either way, you will enjoy the most picturesque views of Newport Beach as you watch the luxury cruise boats and yachts go by, not to mention the fun of the coastal amusement park.
There are amazing RV parks all up and down the coast of Southern California, so you will never be far from a place to park your motorhome. Also, the drive along the Pacific Coast Highway (no matter which direction you travel) is best done in a Cruise America rental RV. It is indisputably the most relaxing, comfortable way to travel.
