Consider the Golden West 'must see' list for the following amazing sights: The Golden Gate Bridge spanning San Francisco Bay; majestic Yosemite National Park; Death Valley, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere; the glorious wine valleys of Napa and Sonoma; the desert oasis of Palm Springs; sprawling Los Angeles with beautiful beaches and beautiful people; the lovely coastal city and near perfect climate of San Diego; the original Disneyland; the scenic coastal drive following the Pacific Ocean along Highway 1. In fact we could go on and on for hours about our favourite places, beaches, cities and attractions that you absolutely must see on your California fly drive holiday.
