Covering Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Palm Springs and the glorious Pacific Coast Highway, the golden state of California never disappoints. In fact it's hard to imagine a more diverse and fascinating state, and it’s this diversity that makes it the perfect holiday choice.
Wake up to waves lapping the shore and then find yourself halfway up a mountain taking in stunning alpine views by the afternoon. And don't forget all the amazing places and sights that come to life, from the Golden Gate Bridge to Hollywood Boulevard with a few quaint seaside towns thrown in along the way.
San Diego is much more than a beach destination and it has a lot to offer, including many key attractions. Stay in the downtown quarter where much of what you’ll want to see and do is within walking distance, or stay along the water for a beautiful sea view.
Whilst you’re there you can visit the San Diego Zoo, enjoy a family day out at Legoland, take a bike tour and practice your surfing skills.
One our most popular holidays is the scenic drive down the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to L.A. Roof down, the wind in your hair, shades on and The Beach Boys on the radio...isnt that living the California dream? Call in to Monterey and Carmel - maybe catcha glimpse of former mayor, Clint Eastwood!
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
