Rent an RV in Southern California


Southern California, often abbreviated as SoCal, is a geographic and cultural region that generally comprises California's 10 southernmost counties. The region is traditionally described as eight counties, based on demographics and economic ties: Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Ventura. The more extensive 10-county definition, which includes Kern and San Luis Obispo counties, is also used and is based on historical political divisions. The 8-county and 10-county definitions are not used for the greater Southern California Megaregion, one of the 11 megaregions of the United States. The megaregion is more expansive, extending east into Las Vegas, Nevada and south across the Mexican border into Tijuana. Southern California includes the heavily built-up urban area which stretches along the Pacific coast from Ventura through the Greater Los Angeles Area and the Inland Empire, and down to Greater San Diego. Southern California's population encompasses seven metropolitan areas: the Los Angeles metropolitan area (Los Angeles and Orange counties), the Inland Empire, (Riverside and San Bernardino counties), the San Diego metropolitan area, the Oxnard–Thousand Oaks–Ventura metropolitan area, the Santa Barbara metropolitan area, the San Luis Obispo metropolitan area, and the El Centro area. The Los Angeles area has over 12 million inhabitants, while the Riverside-San Bernardino area has over 4 million inhabitants and the San Diego area has over 3 million inhabitants. For Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) metropolitan purposes, the five counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura, are all combined to make up the Greater Los Angeles Area with over 17.5 million people. With over 22 million people, Southern California contains roughly 60 percent of California's population. The Colorado Desert and the Colorado River are located on Southern California's eastern border with Arizona, and the Mojave Desert is located north on California's Nevada border. Southern California's southern border is part of the Mexico–United States border.

Disneyland Park

Disneyland Park, originally Disneyland, is the first of two theme parks built at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, opened on July 17, 1955. It is the only theme park designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney. It was originally the only attraction on the property; its official name was changed to Disneyland Park to distinguish it from the expanding complex in the 1990s. Walt Disney came up with the concept of Disneyland after visiting various amusement parks with his daughters in the 1930s and 1940s. He initially envisioned building a tourist attraction adjacent to his studios in Burbank to entertain fans who wished to visit; however, he soon realized that the proposed site was too small. After hiring a consultant to help him determine an appropriate site for his project, Disney bought a site near Anaheim in 1953. Construction began in 1954 and the park was unveiled during a special televised press event on the ABC Television Network on July 17, 1955. Since its opening, Disneyland has undergone a number of expansions and major renovations, including the addition of New Orleans Square in 1966, Bear Country (now Critter Country) in 1972, Mickey's Toontown in 1993, and the forthcoming Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in 2019. Opened in 2001, Disney California Adventure Park was built on the site of Disneyland's original parking lot. Disneyland has a larger cumulative attendance than any other theme park in the world, with over 650 million guests since it opened. In 2013, the park hosted approximately 16.2 million guests, making it the third most visited park in the world that calendar year. According to a March 2005 Disney report, 65,700 jobs are supported by the Disneyland Resort, including about 20,000 direct Disney employees and 3,800 third-party employees (independent contractors or their employees).

Disneyland

Enter a magical kingdom where you can sail with pirates, explore exotic jungles, meet fairy-tale princesses, dive under the ocean and rocket through the stars—all in the same day! Disneyland Park is a beloved Southern California destination where generations of families have made their Disney dreams come true. Opened in 1955, Walt Disney’s original theme park is divided into 8 extravagantly themed lands—Main Street, U.S.A., Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Mickey's Toontown, Frontierland, Critter Country, New Orleans Square and Adventureland. Walt Disney’s first park is said to be haunted by the man himself, seen in or near his old apartment near the Main Street fire station. It is also said that the park is haunted by the spirits of park guests who have died on the Anaheim theme park’s premises. Specific areas include: The Christmas Shop – the expression on the face of an old 19th century photo of a woman appears to change from time to time. Sometimes she frowns, other times she has a straight face. Disney Gallery – ghostly figure of a tall man seen walking. Some say this is Walt Disney. Fire Station – footsteps and knocking are heard. Haunted Mansion – of course its haunted! It’s a Small World – dolls move, even when not plugged in. Lights turn on and off by themselves. Matterhorn Mountain – ghost of a girl named Dolly haunts the place of her death. Pirates of the Caribbean – local legend has it that a mother (illegally) spread the ashes of her dead son here, and that he now sometimes appears on the video security monitors when no one is in the park. Space Mountain – the ride and the women’s locker rooms are haunted by a ghost named “Mr. One Way” who died there in the 70s. He is seen riding the cars, but never stays through the end of the ride. The Star Trader – cold breezes appear inexplicably in the 4th floor stock room Tom Sawyer’s Island – several ghosts seen here, possibly from children who drowned nearby. Tomorrowland – vague reports of cold spots and feelings of unease.

Calico Ghost Town

A ghost town with food & camping!

Calico is an old West mining town that has been around since  1881 during the largest silver strike in California.  With its 500 mines, Calico produced over $20 million in silver ore over a 12-year span.  When silver lost its value in the mid-1890's, Calico lost its population.  The miner's packed up, loaded their mules and moved away abandoning the town that once gave them a good living.  It became a "ghost town."  Walter Knott purchased Calico in the 1950's architecturally restoring all but the five original buildings to look as they did in the 1880's.  Calico received State Historical Landmark 782 and in 2005 was proclaimed by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California's Silver Rush Ghost Town.  Today Calico is part of the San Bernardino County Regional Parks system visited by people from around the country and all over the world.  The park  offers visitors an opportunity to share in its rich history and enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding desert environment.  Along with its  history and attractions, Calico Ghost Town has shops, restaurants and offers camping and outdoor recreation not available at most of our other park facilities.

Chino Hills State Park

Beware the Killer Cows!

Chino Hills State Park, a premier natural open-space area in the hills of Santa Ana Canyon near Riverside, is a critical link in the Puente-Chino Hills biological corridor. It encompasses stands of oaks, sycamores and rolling, grassy hills that stretch nearly 31 miles, from the Santa Ana Mountains to the Whittier Hills. Chino Hills is vitally important as a refuge to many species of plants, and as a link between natural areas essential to the survival of many animal species... including roaming herds of killer cows, responsible for the death of at least one man. Chino Hills is also a place where people can escape the pressures of urban life and find peace and solitude in a natural setting. Visitors can camp for a few days or simply enjoy a walk, horseback or bicycle ride over trails that meander through valleys and along ridge tops through woodlands, sage scrub and grasslands. Sixty miles of trails and fire roads also offer excellent opportunities for viewing wildlife and native plants. Facilities consist of a picnic area, equestrian staging area, pipe corrals, a historic barn, water spigots and restrooms. Most of the trails accept multiple use. However, a few trails are designated for hiking only, because of safety issues or the potential for damage to habitats. Chino Hills State Park is nestled in the foothills surrounded by the communities of Corona, Chino Hills, Yorba Linda, and Brea. The State Routes 57, 71, 91, and 142 border or are the near the park for easy travelling and accessibility from almost anywhere in Southern California.      You can access the park and the trails from the Chino Hills State Park Discovery Center located at 4500 Carbon Canyon Road in the city of Brea or from the Quarter Horse Drive Trailhead in the city of Yorba Linda. The Sapphire Road (Elinvar Road) entrance in Chino Hills is temporarily reopened for hikers, bikes and horses only due to construction on Bane Canyon Road inside the park. Due to construction the Rolling M Campground, the equestrian staging area, and group campsites within the park are closed.
