Experiences in California

It’s easy to know you are in San Francisco thanks to the many iconic features such as the Golden Gate Bridge and the tram-laden hills. A trip over to Alcatraz Island is a must for a close-up look at this notorious former prison. Back in the city enjoy a stroll along the waterfront at Fisherman’s Wharf and try some local Clam Chowder.

In-land Yosemite National Park showcases ancient Redwood forests and thundering waterfalls whilst the sheer granite cliffs of Half Dome and El Capitan are never far from your line of vision. Enjoy excellent hiking through deep valleys and flower filled meadows.

Monterey is a relaxed coastal fishing town, featuring an excellent aquarium. Drive the Big Sur, a 125-mile stretch of Highway 1 which hugs the coastline and offers some of the most famous views in the world.

The pretty and relaxed town of Santa Barbara features a mountain backdrop and terracotta tiles roofs of Spanish inspired buildings established after the town was levelled in an earthquake in 1925. Home to some beautiful beaches this is a great place to relax for a few days.

Contrastingly, Los Angeles is a sprawling metropolis with distinct neighbourhoods to explore. Stay on the beach at Santa Monica with the beautiful Santa Monica Pier or head to upscale Beverly Hills famous for its high-end shopping on Rodeo Drive. Hollywood is famous for being the home of the US entertainment industry and the iconic Hollywood sign. There are theme parks for all ages from tots to teens with Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and the thrilling Six Flags Magic Mountain to name but a few!
