One Way RV Rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas

Friday, April 13th, 2018

One way RV rentals are a great way to see the country. One of the most popular trips is from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. One way RV rentals can be harder to get because of availability. Be flexible when planning your trip. If Los Angeles to Las Vegas is not available, try requesting Las Vegas to Los Angeles. Always book one way rentals as early as possible so that you will not be disappointed.

If you are in Los Angeles I am sure that you will want to spend some time at the beach. Leo Carrillo State Park is located across the Parkway from South Beach and has great camping facilities. Mature sycamore trees provide shaded campsites and there is a general store for those extras you may need. At low tide there are tide pools to explore and several caves and tunnels to adventure into.

After you have spent some time at the Pacific Ocean it will be time to leave Los Angeles and move on to do some hiking in Joshua Tree National Park. During the busier months campgrounds tend to book out, so it is a good idea to book your campgrounds in advance. Cottonwood Campground can accommodate RV’s up to 35 feet and is close to many hiking trails of all skill levels.

On your one way RV rental trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas take exit 153A near Deer St and travel up old Route 66 from Victorville to Barstow. Route 66 was first established in 1926 as one of the main fairways of travel though the USA. Businesses along this route prospered until the new interstate put many of these local businesses out of business in the 1980’s. A trip down Route 66 is like taking a trip through time as not much as changed over the last 6 decades.

A must stop is Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch. Just like the name implies, this unique piece of artwork has metals poles stuck in the ground with thousands of bottle decorating them to make them look like trees.

Next stop on Route 66 is the old Mohawk gas station. Though this gas station is no longer open for business it looks just like it did when it was first open for business more than 80 years ago.

Just around the block from the Mohawk is Antique Station. While it does not look like much on the outside, it is an antique collectors dream come true. If you like old things make sure you leave yourself a couple of hours to wander around this store.

Make sure you stop for lunch at Emma Jean Hollands Burgers. This little restaurant has been serving locals and travelers since 1947, and has great food. It has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, it has also been featured in a number of movies and TV shows. Show up early as some days they are closed by 12:30 pm and bring cash.

Have you ever wanted to eat a McDonald’s Big Mac in a railway car? Well here is your chance. Barstow Station has a McDonald’s housed in a couple of old passenger train cars. There are other fast food options here if you are not feeling McDonald’s. There is also a couple of souvenir shops, a convenience store and a liquor store.

There are many Route 66 museums along the way, many with old signs collected as the old businesses slowly started to close down. This little piece of American history may slowly be gone as some of the local businesses have closed and some have been lost to fire over the last years. Take the time and see it while you can.

Next stop on our one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas is Calico Ghost Town. The Ghost town offers 265 campsite with full or partial hookups and also has spots for group tent camping. Campground has hot showers, restrooms, grills and fire rings. There are also two dump stations. Calico is an old west ghost town that startup in 1881 during the biggest silver rush in Californian history. The town was abandoned a few years later as the price of silver plummeted. In the 1950’s the town was bought and restored to its former glory. There is a house made out of old green glass bottles, an old one room schoolhouse, a general store, a barbershop and a place to try your luck at gold panning. There is also an old mine that for a couple of dollars you can take a walk through. The mine is safe, well lit and well ventilated but be careful if you are a little claustrophobic as you are underground in an old mining tunnel.

The Mojave National Preserve is a place that you could definitely spend some time. Plan out your one way RV rental trip to make sure you do not rush through this spot. Things to know before you go are

  1. there is no gas in the park, so make sure you fill your tank.
  2. there is no food in the park, so stock up.
  3. many of the roads are washboard dirt roads, while most can be driven on by an RV, do your research.
  4. you can camp almost anywhere in the park as long as it has a fire ring.

Built in 1924 the Kelso Depot housed the train station, telegraph office, ticket office, restaurant, reading room and accommodations for the railroad employees. Now it’s a National Park Service Visitor Center. The building now has an interesting little museum with lots of interesting information about the history of the railroad and the surrounding area, indoor bathrooms and a great visitors information center with maps and lots of ideas of things to do in the park.

Teutonia Peak is a 2 mile hike up to the summit where you can see miles and miles to the snow covered peaks in the distance. As you turn around to go down the way you came you will see many old mine shafts littering the landscape. These shafts are now covered with metal grates but you can still not see the bottom of some of these shafts.

Kelso Dunes is another great hike, it can be a bit hard to climb as you are walking up sand but once you reach the top the view out over the dunes is totally worth it. Ring Trail is another worthwhile hike. Again part of the hike can be a little challenging but between the very narrow canyon, the giant limestone cliffs and the petroglyphs it is a must travel kind of trail.

Your one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas has now brought you into Nevada. A quick stop into the Whiskey Pete Casino has a small exhibit dedicated to Bonnie and Clyde. The exhibit has the actual car that Bonnie and Clyde were shot in complete with bullet holes.

While the Pioneer Saloon and the general store that sits next to it look like they should be on the set of some wild west movie they are actually establishments that service food and drink, and other things that you would expect to find in a general store. The saloon was built in 1913 and has many of the original finishings, such as the bar that was actually built in the 1860’s and the brass rail that you can rest your feet on that was installed when the bar was built. The history of this bar is immense and the owner has kept bits of this history around for all to live through.

Before you finish your one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas make your last overnight stop in Valley of Fire State Park. The layers of red, orange, pink and yellows rise up out of the landscape, making the views and the trails in this 40,000 acre park something that you will always remember. This park has some of the highest concentrations of petroglyphs and petrified trees anywhere in the US, dating back over 2000 years. The park is open year round and has campsites with shaded picnic tables, fire rings and water available.

Well the last stop is Las Vegas Nevada. Is it the casinos that get you excited? Or are you looking for family adventure? Maybe you want to see some of the mob history that Las Vegas is famous for? There are so many great things to do in Las Vegas.

This list is just a few of the amazing things you can enjoy on your one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, there are so many more adventures to be had. Check out the links below for things to do in Las Vegas.

RV Travel Apps

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

If you are getting ready to start your RV adventure you may want to check out some of these helpful apps to make your trip a little more carefree.

There are lots of apps helping you to decide where to stay. I don’t like dishing out money to buy apps, there are lots of free apps available, but some of these are worth the price. Here are some of the most popular.

Screen Shot 2013-03-05 at 12.35.13 PM

ALLSTAYS-Camp & RV, this app lets you find and filter places with or without available internet. This is a great app that includes filtering by tenting, RV resorts, parking lots (that you are allowed to stay in), fuel stops, rest areas, and more. It’s worth the price. Allstays also has a Walmart Overnight Parking app that comes in handy when you are just looking for a place to get a few hours sleep.

Screen Shot 2013-03-05 at 2.16.49 PM

Some of the best apps for navigating come built into our phones. The built in IOS map app is a great app, Suri gives good directs so that you do not need to be looking at your phone while you are driving. Even for an iPhone user like me the Google app has its place. When you are on a website and hit the get directions link it usually uses Google maps. I don’t think that it is as smooth as the IOS version but not everyone is lucky enough to have an iPhone.

Coverage?

There is a RV travel blog http://www.technomadia.com/ that I have been reading and they have created some of there own apps based on RV travel need. This one lets you track cellular signal off line so that you can check and make sure that the campground you are planning on staying at has cellular connection.

Let’s face it, we want to rent an RV so that we can reconnect with our family. The last thing we want the kids to be doing is staring at their cell phones. Why not use the phones do get everyone in the same place interacting with each other. The Campfire Songs app will remind you of all those great songs that you used to sing as a kid.

How about taking the kids on a treasure hunt with this Geocaching app. This is a great way to get everybody together, to get moving and see somewhere that you wouldn’t have seen otherwise.

This has to be my favorite apps for getting people moving and interacting with the world. Don’t discount Pokemon Go as an app only for kids. I would say it is for ages 10-99. This apps gets people out walking, and interacting with other people playing the game. When you are at a Pokestop you end up talking to other people that are there and comparing Pokemon, finding out where they are from and a little of their story. The draw back to this is that you need to be in populated areas to find the Pokemon. If your RV rental trip includes some city stops you should give this app a try, you may be surprised.

 

There are sani-dump apps and gas price check apps, things to do apps, weather apps, hiking trail apps, the list is endless of what is available to us online. Check out the star gazer apps that will name constellations as you view them through your phone. What a great way to spend an evening by the campfire.

Vacations with all the comforts of home

Monday, September 9th, 2013

Taking an RV rental vacation is like taking your home with you when you go on holidays. If you are renting an RV in the city that you live, you can really bring all your comforts of home. Pack your favorite bedding and pillows, your coffee maker, and your favorite pasta pot and head out on the road. If you are not leaving from your hometown that’s ok too, let us pack all the necessities for you and you still can have your favorite brand of coffee every morning instead of to take what you can find on the road. When you rent an RV you will not have to worry about finding a hotel room on the busy weekends or spend time worrying about flight delays or over booking. With more and more people having restricted diets, renting an RV will allow you to cook all your own meal, which will also save you some money. Camping in an RV is also a great way to meet new friends. Settle in at your campsite for the night, then take a walk around. There are always many campers that are eager to meet new people. This is a great way to learn about the area as some campers spend many months at the same place.

No airports, no hotels, no restaurants, what a great way to spend your next family vacation.

Los Angeles – About the City

Friday, May 24th, 2013

 

Geography

Los Angeles hosts a wide variety of geographic landscapes. While Los Angeles is mostly a desert basin, it is also surrounded by the San Gabriel Mountain range and split by the Santa Monica Mountains. This makes for some great hiking and mountain biking terrain. LA also has over 75 miles of coast line along the Pacific Ocean with some of the best surfing in the world, but don’t worry if you are not a seasoned pro when it comes to surfing there are lots of mellow waves to test out.

Weather

Los Angeles boasts 292 days of sunshine, that fact alone makes Los Angeles a top destination on my list. With an average high of 75 degrees and an average low of 57 degrees, there is no wrong season to visit Los Angeles. The average yearly rainfall in Los Angeles is 15 inches.

Multicultural LA

Los Angeles is one of the most cultural diverse cities in the world, being one of only two cities in the US without a majority population. Boyle Heights is a must stop for Mexican food with a predominately Hispanic/Latino culture. Chinatown has something for everyone, great food, farmers markets, galleries and walking tours. Try the “Undiscovered Chinatown” tour to uncover history, treasures and great shopping. Little Tokyo is home to the Japanese American National Museum, and the Nisei Week festival. Leimert Park is the African-American cultural mecca of Los Angeles, stop to visit the art galleries and the eateries. Koreatown host the highest concentration of restaurants and nightlife in all of Southern California. From dive bars to high end cocktail lounges Koreatown is a city that never sleeps.
