The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon
Yosemite National Park
Drawing over 3.7 million visitors each year, this national park in the Sierra Nevada is a haven for nature lovers, with over 700,000 acres of beautiful wilderness to explore. Perfect for one or two nights, during your stay you can hike the trails, climb the rocks, raft the rivers and be at one with nature.
While you can fly there, nothing quite compares to driving through the desert and into the brightly lit strip of Las Vegas (in a convertible for full effect). Famed for its hangovers and brat pack, the adult playground is everything and anything but boring. Embrace the surreal and enjoy a famous circus show one minute and a roller coaster the next; all taking place in casinos of course!
The seaside Californian town draws travellers near and wide with its iconic Golden Gate bridge (which is actually orange) and creative culture. To see it in all its splendour, explore the historic Haight-Ashbury district, enjoy a Bridge to Bridge Harbour Cruise, visit the surrounding wineries and don’t miss an eery visit to Alacatraz Island.
Many people are drawn to LA for the bright lights of Hollywood, but it’s not the only thing worth visiting for. Hire a car and explore the city beyond the walk of fame and you’ll find a relaxing city of palm tree lined beaches, rolling hills and yoga-culture. And, when you’re in need of a thrill, embrace your big-kid side with a visit to Disneyland and Universal Studios.
