Los Angeles to Seattle 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.
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.
With its lovely ocean views and an eclectic mix of galleries, shops and restaurants, the historic seaside town of Mendocino has long been popular as an artists' haven.
Redwood National Park is home to the world's tallest trees. California's magnificent coastal redwoods can live for 2000 years and grow to a height of more than 100 m.
Framed by towering volcanic cliffs, Crater Lake's clear blue water is nearly 600 m deep - making it the second deepest lake in North America.
Amazing sand dunes - some towering up to 150 m high - rise from the shores of the Pacific Ocean at the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
Nestled in the foothills of the Oregon Cascades, Silver Falls State Park's walking trails take hikers through forested canyons to some of the park's 10 beautiful waterfalls.
The site of a major volcanic eruption in 1980, today Mount St Helens is home to a dramatic landscape of hardened lava with an almost out-of-this world feel about it.
Considered one of the most dangerous active volcanos in the world, Mount Rainier is covered with breathtaking glaciers and wildflower meadows teeming with life. Hip cafes, quirky galleries and a vibrant live music scene, Seattle's edgy culture offers everything you would expect from the birthplace of grunge.
