Your adventure begins in one of the world’s most beautiful cities, San Francisco, California. Fly into San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and take a 30-minute Lyft or BART ride into the heart of the city. Many of our guests spend a day in San Francisco before embarking on their BlissRV adventure.
Take some time to relax from your travel by exploring San Francisco’s diverse neighborhoods and attractions. Ride the Cable Car up from Union Square to the top of Lombard Street. Head down to Fisherman’s Wharf and the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero. For a classic cocktail in an art deco setting, try Stookey’s Club Moderne. How about a private electric tuk-tuk tour? Dylan’s Tours is a great way take in the city.
With its relaxed, small-town vibe, Sausalito makes for an invitingly easy start to your BlissRV adventure. Downtown’s charming shops and cafes offer an entertaining afternoon, strolling the waterfront. Our two favorite hotels in Sausalito are Casa Madrona and the Inn Above the Tide. Both are centrally located to enjoy the town on foot and both are a 10-minute ride to pick up you BlissRV. Barrel House Tavern is a fun stop for california cuisine and views of San Francisco. Sandrino is our pick for charm and romance on the local’s favorite street, Caledonia, where you will also find the acclaimed Sushi Ran. Sausalito’s Seaplane Adventures is a spectacular way to see our unique Floating Home Community, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and the natural beauty of Marin Headlands.
The Giant Redwoods
For the adventure of a lifetime, come commune with the thousand-year-old sentinels of California’s Northern Coast - the Giant Redwoods. Their quiet majesty will make a tree-hugger of you! These trees are the world’s tallest and among its oldest. The ancient redwood groves reside along the Northern Coast, starting right across the Bay from San Francisco in the fabled Muir Woods. Once you have picked up your BlissRV and provisioned at Mollie Stones market here in Sausalito, drive directly to the Muir Woods National Monument. Step into the woods for a forest bath to mark your arrival at a special place - and the beginning of very special time, your adventure.
For RV camping amongst the Redwoods, you’ll head further north to Hendy Woods State Park and Humboldt Redwoods SP.
Hendy Woods State Park
From Muir Woods, continue along the coast on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH, Highway 1) through Point Reyes National Seashore, Bodega Bay and Sonoma Coast State Park (see below) or cross over to Highway 101 to get to Hendy Woods SP directly
Big Hendy Grove is one of the best, and lesser-known, ways to experience the Giant Redwoods and it is just 2 1/2 hours north of Sausalito. Besides offering great RV camping sites and giant redwoods, Hendy Woods SP’s location in the wine country means that you are invited to partake of Northern California food culture! On your way into camp, stop at Lemon’s Philo Market for local bubbly, cheese and roasted coffee.
