Holidays to California

With its Hollywood glitz and glamour, a sprinkling of Disney magic and the call of the wild across the Sierra Nevada, there really is nothing that can beat a dream California holiday. Situated on the western coast of the United States, California is world famous for its natural splendour, glamourous cities and iconic tourist landmarks... in short, holidays in California are an unforgettable experience.

 

Start your holiday in California with a trip to the Yosemite National Park, a sweeping swathe of granite cliffs, sparkling waterfalls, giant redwood trees and exotic animals. Cities as Sacramento and Santa Barbara with their old buildings, museums, wooden sidewalks and horse-drawn carriage rides, hark back to the era of Spanish colonisation and the Gold Rush. Equally enticing is the city of San Francisco, known for its splendid Art-Deco-inspired Golden Gate Bridge, quaint cable cars and colourful Victorian houses. A customary selfie from Fort Point with the iconic bridge as a backdrop or a panoramic shot from the Marin’s Vista Point overlooking the fog-laden bay area should be on everyone's bucket list. The Napa and Sonoma Valleys are known for their gently undulating vineyards providing the perfect summer retreat from which you can savour a bottle of vintage Cabernet Sauvignon.

 

Of course, no holiday in California is complete without a visit to Los Angeles. Discover how movies are made by taking a behind-the-scenes tour around one of Hollywood’s famous film studios and be sure to visit Disneyland California, the iconic amusement park featuring fantasy lands, exciting rides and costumed characters for the whole family to enjoy. California holidays will set the stage for fabulous memories to cherish forever.
