Sun-soaked California is perfect for an exciting road trip. Fly into San Francisco and drive down the spectacular Pacific Coast Highway, finishing up among the bright lights of Los Angeles. We can make suggestions for some wonderful hopping-off points along the way and highly recommend heading inland to Yosemite National Park for a few nights in the mountains.
One of our favourite destinations for wildlife is in Montana & Wyoming, home to Yellowstone National Park and some excellent ranches. In Arizona & Las Vegas, a trip to the Grand Canyon ranks high on many holiday bucket lists and can easily be combined with a night or two in glitzy Vegas!
On the North East coast, explore the iconic sites and cities including Boston, New York and Washington DC, easily linked by train. Perhaps continue your journey south to Florida not only offers the theme parks of Orlando but also the nature-rich coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
If you’re seeking a tropical idyll to combine with your City and National Park adventure, Hawaii is just under a 6 hour flight from both San Francisco and LA whilst on the East Coast, Miami has excellent onward links to the Caribbean.
