San Francisco here we come!
We decided on the San Francisco RV Resort in Pacifica, California. We were simply looking for a safe place to park our RV while we explored the city. We did get that. The park is gated and fenced in, and is basically a very large parking lot right on the water. We chose an inland space (more affordable), but unfortunately these back directly up to the busy freeway. The traffic noise was VERY loud. After talking to the host, we found out that Premium Inland spaces ($16 more per night) were away from the traffic, but none were available for us. The ocean view spaces were beautiful, but had no hook-ups. There were also "long term" spaces where it appeared that several people were living in their rv's in the park. It would make reservations so much easier if the park would just put a map (with pricing) on their website. It's not user-friendly or clear what you are purchasing at all. They also advertised free Wi-fi, and we were right next to the office, yet could not connect once during our entire stay there. They had open access, with no passwords required, so anyone could connect. It was worthless. Even when my kids were up very early in the morning, we couldn't connect, and I doubt there were many other campers trying to access the web at 5:30 am. Regardless, the campground was clean, and safe, and much cheaper than a hotel, so it did work well for us. It's very nice to have unlimited water and power when traveling in a city every day with the kids. For this I was very thankful!
We arrived late in the afternoon, so my brave hubby and I decided to try to drive into the city and kind of get our bearings for exploring the next few days. He glanced at a map, and I helped him navigate along the coast right to the base of the Golden Gate Bridge!
He did great, and got us there safe and sound. It was a dark and foggy afternoon in San Fran, but we were expecting that type of weather. We parked in the Battery East Parking lot, just steps away from the bridge.
