Ultimate California Southbound 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.
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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
