Embark on a travel adventure along America's west coast
Embark on a dream travel adventure in the west coast of America. Admire all things bold and beautiful in Los Angeles and turn hedonist in Las Vegas where sinners come to flirt with chance. Make a mission to see the epic Grand Canyon, experience the scorch of the sun in Death Valley and then soak in the serenity of the Yosemite National Park. Pay a visit to the bohemian breeding ground of San Francisco and enjoy the beauty of Santa Barbara's coastline. A dream realised, this Californian adventure is a must for the young at heart.
California Dreamin' SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Stars, surf, superficiality and sunshine - Los Angeles is a bold, sprawling city with a pronounced swagger and a surprising amount of charm.
Relax into the great weather, beautiful beaches and laidback lifestyle of San Diego, a city close to the Mexican border with a celebrated outdoor lifestyle.
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. Lake Havasu is actually a reservoir on the Colorado River created in the 1930s. It's a popular place known for fishing, boating and hiking.
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.
To witness the roll of the dice, the brightness of the lights and the general ostentatiousness of Las Vegas is a quintessential American experience.
Located within the Mojave Desert, Death Valley is one of North America's hottest places. Despite its grim name, the area is beautiful and full of life. A mountain range that runs for 640 km through California and Nevada, the Sierra Nevada is host to stunning mountain peaks, alpine lakes and beautiful wilderness areas.
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.
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.
Known as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is a popular Californian city that features great beaches, celebrated wineries and a sunny disposition.
Although not as glitzy as it likes to make out, LA does have a lot to offer with its eclectic array of restaurants, entertainment and modern-day culture.
