A Holiday RV Vacation in San Francisco with Your Pet
By Joe Laing, El Monte RV

San Francisco, California is a perfect holiday destination and one where you can comfortably and happily take your pet with you. This city has many dog parks, including Golden Gate Park where four-legged animals can romp with abandon over more than one thousand acres. The winter holidays in the Bay Area offer so many events, attractions and performances, you won't want to miss a thing.

When you take your pet on vacation with you in an RV motorhome, you will find many conveniences. Your dog will feel right at home the whole time, surrounded by his or her favorite toys and pillows. There will be no frantic searching for hotels or motels that accept pets, no trying to find accommodations that don't charge fees for animals that are accompanying you. An RV vacation to San Francisco is a great way to visit Northern California. You simply fly in, rent an RV and get started.

RV camping in San Francisco is abundant and provides all the amenities you need. San Francisco RV Resort is only fifteen minutes from the city, giving you easy access to all sights and attractions for your holiday adventures. The Pillar Point RV Park is south of San Francisco in beautiful Half Moon Bay and you just have to travel north to the city for your planned activities. This campground accepts pets with a few restrictions.

Take your pet with you as you celebrate the holidays in the City by the Bay. There is nothing sweeter than stopping by Union Square and enjoying the marvelous sight of the gorgeously decorated Christmas tree. It will put you right into the Christmas spirit. Of course, along Union Street there will be a month-long list of celebrations all through the holidays.

Take a trip over to Benicia for the Christmas Parade & Holiday Market on the 8th of December. There will be local bands, plenty of friendly folks, foods and of course, Santa! Bring some tidbits for your dog to keep him happy.

Fisherman's Wharf is a pet-friendly place, and you will find that the Fisherman's Wharf Fishing Fleet remains lit all during the holiday season. Head over to the Sport Fishing Harbor where you can get the best views of this breathtaking display. On December 14, catch the Holiday Lights & Sights Boat Parade at Fisherman's Wharf on Pier 39. This is a parade you won't easily forget, with boats all decorated with lights and decorations parading along the waterfront.

There are many more pet-friendly attractions that you can visit. At the Embarcadero, walk your dog along the beautiful pier, and maybe even gaze upon some of the famous San Francisco seals. If you have always wanted to visit Coit Tower now is the time. This attraction is open to pets, and gives you an incredible view of the San Francisco skyline. And remember, you can get around the city in the pet-friendly cable cars.

If you want to get outdoors with your pet for a romp, go to San Francisco's Ocean Beach and stroll the three plus miles of sandy expanse. Watch the sea birds soaring above you. You can also head down to the south end and come upon Fort Funston, a dog's paradise. Pack a lunch to take along and hike the trails around the dunes. There are even dog bowls for your pet that are located by the main trail where it forks and goes down to the dunes. If you want your pet to have some fun off-leash, go to Baker Beach and let him play while you enjoy the views of the Marin Headlands.

A few things you might want to do and leave your loved pet at "home" in your RV are ice skating at the Embarcadero Center Ice Rink or attending the December 7 production of the Christmas classic "A Christmas Carol" at the American Conservatory Theater. You can also attend Nutcracker Sweets which is being presented by the Mark Foehringer Dance Project at the Children's Creativity Museum. This will run each weekend through December 23.

Spending the holidays in San Francisco is wonderful, particularly when you don't have to leave your pet alone for the time you are away. A trip there in an RV motorhome is the perfect way to keep the whole family together for the Christmas season.
