Great Places to Visit
It’s impossible to sample everything California has to offer in just one trip, but you can get a great taste of brilliant beaches, big cities and more.
San Diego, Malibu, Santa Monica, Laguna Beach, Venice Beach – these beaches and more are all household names thanks to their impossibly beautiful golden sands and bright blue waters. It’s hard to go wrong with a beach in California, so planning your coastal stay to work with the rest of your holiday should be a (sea) breeze.
Explore the National Parks
No visit to the Golden State is complete without a visit to a national park where nature can be seen on a grand scale. Yosemite, 200 miles from San Francisco, is California’s most famous national park, but Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Sequoia and Kings Canyon and Pinnacles are all brilliant places to experience the great outdoors.
Sightseeing and the City
Whether you see yourself as a Hollywood star strutting down Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, a cool hipster soaking up the bar scene in cosmopolitan San Francisco, or a laidback beach lover hanging out in San Diego, California offers a dizzying variety of shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife in its amazing cities.
Thrills and Spills – and Mickey Mouse!
Disneyland started in California and has gone from strength to strength ever since. But there’s more to the theme park scene here than just Mickey Mouse. Adrenaline junkies can choose between Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood, Raging Waters, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and lots more.
