San Francisco and the Bay Area
The politics, the culture, the food—these are what make San Francisco world famous. Dine on cutting-edge cuisine at high-end restaurants and off-beat food-trucks, tour classical and avant-garde museums, bike through Golden Gate Park and stroll along Fisherman’s Wharf, where barking sea-lions and boisterous street performers compete for attention.
For deserted beaches, towering redwoods, and scenic coastal towns, cruise north along the Redwood Coast. Explore Russian history at Fort Ross on the grassy bluffs of the Sonoma Coast, and fall in love with Mendocino’s small-town charm and nearby wineries.
Go surfing and wine-tasting in Santa Cruz. Witness gray whales and sea lions off rugged Monterey Bay, and then explore their environment at the world-class Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Big Sur and the Central Coast
Take in the picturesque Santa Barbara Mission and then stroll down the city’s State Street, which is lined with shops, restaurants, and bars. Enjoy the lonely coastline of Jalama Beach or, to truly get away from it all, take a boat ride out to Channel Islands National Park.
Los Angeles and Orange Country
For a taste of the iconic California dream, you can’t beat Los Angeles. From the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills to the camp and kitsch of Santa Monica’s Pier, L.A. is all California culture, all the time.
For the sun-drenched, sugar-sand California beach experience portrayed in endless films and TV shows, come to San Diego. Maritime museums ring the downtown harbor, while, across the bay, Coronado’s vibrant and historic Hotel del Coronado creates a centerpiece for visitors to the city.
