Day 2
Los Angeles

4* Garland Hotel

Day 4
San Simeon

Perhaps take the time to discover the wonder and grandeur of its opulent social rooms on a 60-minute Grand Rooms Tour. Or why not head to the beach? The silica here is wild, beautiful and, at points, populated by elephant seals. The Piedras Blancas Rookery is the best place to witness these unusual creatures in their natural, beachside habitat.

Days 5-6
San Francisco

Park up at your campsite, just 15 miles from the city, and catch the bus to the centre. We recommend hiring a bike and cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge, riding the historic cable cars, picking up some shopping in Union Square, dining in Fisherman’s Wharf and touring Alcatraz Island (but book your tickets at least a month in advance). If you liked the elephant seals in San Simeon, then you’ll love the lively sea lions at Pier 39.

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco
Days 7-8
Yosemite

Just three hours from San Francisco you’ll find the mighty Yosemite, one of the USA’s first national parks and also one of the most popular. Take a hike along the Mist Trail to Vernal and Nevada Falls, gaze upon the reflections of Mirror Lake, or soak up the vistas from Tunnel View and Glacier Point – you’ll quickly see why four million people flock here every year.

Motorhome

Day 9
Death Valley

It’s hard not to be impressed by the towering mountains and deep canyons of Kings Canyon and Sequoia, not to mention the world’s largest trees, nestled in a giant sequoia grove. Both parks are also packed with wildlife; keep your eyes peeled for American black bears and bighorn sheep. Death Valley couldn’t be more different – expect arid desertscapes, cracked salt flats and scientist-defying rocks at The Racetrack.

Motorhome

Day 10
Barstow

Here you can get some retail therapy in either of the two outlet malls, or check out some local culture – we highly recommend the Barstow Route 66 Mother Road Museum and the Mojave River Valley Museum.

Motorhome

Days 11-12
San Diego

When you’re not unwinding, sinking your toes into the sand, head for some of the city’s best sights. Spy more than 650 different species at the San Diego Zoo, stroll along the waterfront and explore the 1,200 acres of gardens and open green spaces at Balboa Park.

Motorhome

Day 13
Newport Beach

In fact, it’s often regarded as one of the best places to surf in the world, so grab your board and get ready to catch a wave or two. If you prefer a more sedentary style, perhaps hit the shops, indulge in a spa treatment or stay for one of the region’s many events: we particularly love the Newport Beach Film Festival held in April/May.

Days 14-15
Depart Newport Beach and return to the UK
