US West Coast

If you are planning a trip to the USA, then sun drenched California is an ideal area to explore with its beautiful coast, warm people and wealth of attractions. Many travellers hire a car and make their visit a tour, an ideal way to enjoy both the exciting cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles, and to enjoy the spectacular countryside.

Of course the US is famous for its movie industry, and no visit to California would be complete without spending a little time in America's second largest city, Los Angeles. The home of the movies, Los Angeles is bursting with famous landmarks. Take a stroll along Hollywood Boulevard and perhaps spot a celebrity in the many bars and restaurants. With the world famous theme parks Disneyland and Universal Studios within easy reach, Los Angeles is naturally popular with families, but those seeking a more sophisticated vacation will not be disappointed.

For those who are looking for a different sort of holiday, San Francisco is a historic and beautiful city, stretching away from a harbour up steep hills offering spectacular views to those energetic enough to make the climb. Of course for those of us who would prefer to take a relaxed approach, the city's historic tram service is a great way to explore and is interesting in its own right. Alcatraz, a former prison, is an interesting and unusual attraction, where visitors can enjoy the boat ride over San Francisco bay to see where infamous criminals like Al Capone were incarcerated.

By road it's only around six hours between the two cities, so you needn't fear that younger members of the family will not manage the distance. However, if you do feel like exploring, the winding coast road, while slightly longer, is famous for its fabulous views. Inland California is also home to some truly breathtaking natural scenery, including the beautiful Lake Tahoe and the amazing Yosemite National Park. Southern Lake Tahoe has all the restaurants and nightclubs you might want, but is really wonderful for watersports, hiking, mountain biking and getting back to nature. The vast Yosemite National Park is well known for it's waterfalls, mountains, meadows and deep valleys, and even in the height of summer when it attracts most visitors, it is easy to get away from everyone and enjoy some peace and tranquillity in one of the world's most beautiful settings.
