What's included in this trip
Best of California SummaryAdd to Shortlist
As a truly multicultural city, San Francisco has a wealth of cuisines, cultures, artistic events and eclectic scenes over every hill and around every corner.
If heaven descended to Earth, it would probably look like Yosemite. One of America's most popular national parks, its waterfalls, dramatic cliffs and wilderness areas are breathtaking.
Rich in oil and an agricultural powerhouse, Bakersfield is a typical American city which is currently in a state of rapid growth.
To witness the roll of the dice, the brightness of the lights and the general ostentatiousness of Las Vegas is a quintessential American experience.
Words don't do justice to the Grand Canyon, a stunning 1.5 km deep gorge formed by over six million years of erosion from the Colorado River.
Owing its worldwide fame to U2, the Joshua Tree National Park lies within the Mojave and Colorado deserts and is striking for its rock formations and incredible night skies.
Stars, surf, superficiality and sunshine - Los Angeles is a bold, sprawling city with a pronounced swagger and a surprising amount of charm.
