Plan your trip to California
In California, sandy beaches, rocky coasts, snowy mountains and lush valleys offer experiences you won’t find anywhere else – and certainly not all in the same state. San Diego’s laid-back surf attitude is contagious and the zoo is world-renowned. In Los Angeles, historic Hollywood attractions will keep you snapping pictures and in San Francisco, ride a trolley through its famous hills. Wine Country is synonymous with pleasures of the palate and nature becomes your playground at Lake Tahoe and Yosemite. From lazy beach-filled bliss to ambitious days of hiking, California is a traveler’s dream.
