Perhaps nowhere in the U.S. embodies the American dream more than the state of California. Dig beyond the sun, surf and Hollywood stars, and you'll find an extraordinary wealth of reasons to visit. Explore the neighborhood communities of San Francisco, ride a Harley Davidson along Big Sur, savour Californian cuisine in the Spanish mission town of Santa Barbara, and shop with Tinseltown’s finest on Rodeo Drive.
California may well conjure up glittering visions of movie stars and tanned surfers, dotcom millionaires and tree-hugging communities, but that’s just the surface. We’ll help you uncover the hidden gems and contrasting landscapes that make up America’s Golden State. Away from the coast, seek out world-class wines among the sun-honeyed vineyards of Napa and Sonoma, trek from waterfall to waterfall in the High Sierra, feel dwarfed by towering giant redwoods and sequoias, and relax by hot springs in fabulous desert resorts. California truly has something for everyone.
