Your California vacation

The land of perpetual sun and bronzed bodies isn't just for glam socialites and cashed-up celebs; California is also the place for fun on the cheap. Hit the sands of Manhattan Beach or pick up some knick-knacks at Maclin Markets. If you want a taste of the high-life, take a cruise along Mulholland Drive for a peek at some of the most opulent homes in the country. Bring the family to Disneyland or explore Yosemite National Park. If you just feel like chilling out and watching a good (and often free) play, head to the Greek Theatre in Griffith Park.

  • Best Time to Go

    California vacations are popular throughout the year because much of the state has a very mild climate. At the same time, however, it does cool off during the winter, making it more difficult to enjoy the beach. You can save money during the winter because many of the beaches slow down during these months, which brings about fewer tourists. You can also avoid lineups at many tourist destinations during the winter. Do not miss the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, held at the end of April in Indio and features some of the most famous bands in the world.

  • Hearst Castle Estate

    Tour the Hearst Castle estate and its large collection of antiques and art.

  • Summer Concerts

    Summer concerts are held all over the state, with the Hollywood Bowl and the Ford Amphitheatre being popular locations.

  • Hollywood Comedy

    California travel is not complete without a trip to a Hollywood comedy club, such as the Laugh Factory, where you are sure to see a surprise special guest.

  • Santa Cruz Boardwalk

    The Santa Cruz Boardwalk is less popular than Santa Monica, but is preferred by most who visit this location.

  • Sea World

    While SeaWorld gets most of the attention, the Monterey Bay Aquarium features a number of great exhibits in a more personal environment.
