Travellers and activities

California for beach buffs

California is known for amazing beaches from San Diego all the way to Pelican beach on the Oregon state border. Each area is diverse. Some of the highlights include Oceano, the Gateway to the Dunes where some sand dunes soar to 500 feet above sea level and are home to Snowy Plover birds. It’s the only area where vehicles are allowed on the beach. Morro Bay offers a Trolley ride to Morro Rock, the icon of Morro Bay and playground of the sea for kayaking, surfing, and boating. Wineries, antiquing, and seafood dining abound here. Long Beach has eleven awesome beaches with music, art, and eclectic shopping experiences.

California for savvy travellers

Pacific Grove along the coast of Monterey County is loaded with Victorian houses worth checking out. Delicious food, wine, music, and art are also popular in this quaint area. A visit to the National Marine Sanctuary is a must while you’re here. It boasts the most wildlife of the sea and is dubbed “the Serengeti of the Sea”. Make a day trip to investigate the shimmering tide pools of fascinating marine life. Steep canyons, blue whales, sparkling beaches, and kelp forests will keep your clan engaged for the afternoon. There are many restaurants featuring classic California cuisine and wine too.

California for road trip junkies

Tackling the Pacific Coast Highway could be considered a milestone among road trip fanatics. However, if you don’t have time to take on its impressive length, there are many smaller, breath-taking stretches to choose from. One of the most famous of these scenic drives is Big Sur. Once known as Spanishtown, Half Moon Bay still retains much of its historical charm as well as great views, lesser known but equally beautiful beaches, shops, and restaurants. Or try the wild beaches of Del Norte County along the Oregon border like Pelican Beach with numerous Pelicans and great fishing in this serene location.

When gold was found in California in 1848, this incredibly diverse state got the nickname “The Gold Coast”.

Top 7 travel tips in California

1. See what all the fuss is about in Malibu

Malibu is a must see while you’re touring California’s coastline. You’ll find celebrity mansions and the Spanish-style Adamson House. Don’t miss Zuma and Surfrider Beach for the waves and soft sand. And the Malibu Lagoon Museum offers a plethora of rich history. Finally, take a hike along the Santa Monica Mountains for waterfalls and canyons.

2. Take day trips to Wine Country

Staying in NorCal has just as many advantages as SoCal. Food and Wine, for starters. Book a day tour and discover the famous wineries of Sonoma County, Mendocino, and Carmel Valley. Each winery and vineyard comes with its own tasting rooms, scenery, and world-class charm.

3. Walk with ancient sentinels

One of the biggest natural attractions in NorCal is the Redwood Forest. While visiting the San Francisco Bay Area, don’t miss your chance to explore Muir Woods and see the world’s tallest trees for yourself. Afterwards, check out the hidden Stinson Beach with jaw droppingly gorgeous views and an old lighthouse.

4. Explore the national parks of Big Sur

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park stretches from the high ridges inland until it meets the dramatic coastline of Big Sur. Hike along marked trails through the redwood, tan oak and chaparral forest for beautiful vistas and wildlife. Don’t miss the spectacular waterfall cascading over granite cliffs into the ocean at Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

5. Surf with the locals

San Diego beaches are well known for surfing. Grab a board and test your skills. Check out Balboa Park’s San Diego Zoo, art studios, gardens, and museums while you’re at it. Or visit the USS Midway aircraft carrier museum for some cool naval archives. Venice Beach has a bohemian flare with the Boardwalk offering quirky shops, murals and street performers, and much more.

6. Check out the beaches near San Francisco

Bodega Bay is tucked into the loveliest stretch of Sonoma County’s coastline featuring whale watching at Bodega Head peninsula especially from October through April. The Ace It Bike Tour offers local wildlife and history along the bay. Opal Cliffs Pleasure point and The Hook are perfect for surfing. Stop by Point Market & Café and pick up refreshments for your stroll along this dynamic beach.

7. Photograph the dunes at Oceano

The dunes at Oceano stretch for 5.5 miles with the SVRA area for dune buggies and all terrain vehicle recreation. The dunes are spectacular as well as the coastline here. You may even sight some of the native birds and wildlife while you’re hiking along the high hills in the background. This is a great photo region especially for avid photographers.
