California Travel Guide

The Golden State of California is one of the most beautiful destinations in the entire USA. Home to hip towns, stunning beaches, and cosmopolitan cities, a California road trip should be on every travelers bucket list.

Things to Do in California

Visiting the major cities is a must when traveling through California. In Los Angeles, be sure to stop by all of the highlights that offer a glimpse into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. See how your handprint sizes up to that of your favorite actors and actresses at Hollywood Boulevard and get ready for your close up (or just check out the famous settings from the movies) on a tour of movie sets such as Universal Studios or Warner Bros Studios. Afterwards, venture Southwards to San Diego to visit the world famous zoo and hang out with the hipsters of Ocean Beach.

Though the big cities are a major draw of California, it's the smaller beach towns that possess the true Californian vibe. Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ocean County are a few areas with laid-back charm and happening main streets. Wine connoisseurs will love all of the delicacies and blends available for sampling in Santa Ynez and Napa Valleys.

Of course, no trip to California is complete without stopping by San Francisco and seeing its crazy hills and steep layout firsthand. Drive up to the viewing point by the Golden Gate Bridge and pose for beautiful photos, as well as take a tour of the spooky Alcatraz prison.

Best Places to Stay in California

Time permitting, the best way to approach California is to take a road trip up or down the coast, and make several stops as you go. Alternatively, stay in the major cities of LA, San Francisco and San Diego and take day trips out from each base.

Best Time to Visit California

Owing to its Mediterranean climate, California is a pleasant place to visit all year round.

  • — I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
