This California Coastal itinerary offers the perfect blend of some of California\'s most dynamic cities such as San Francisco and LA together with the stunning scenery of the Pacific Coast Highway. In California it’s easy to find an epic drive like the PCH 101 heading south from San Francisco and stopping off to explore the delights of Monterey and Santa Barbara known as the American Rivera. San Francisco offers you a chance to experience its cultured, laid-back atmosphere that still has plenty of night life. With some of the West Coast’s best restaurants and most striking features it is a great place to go and just soak in the atmosphere. Los Angeles gives you the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the beaches of Santa Monica, the splendour of Beverly Hills and the fun of Disneyland. It is a big, sprawling city and gives you a real feel for the diversity that the USA is famous for.

Staff Review

“The Golden State of California is truly an incredible destination- diverse, beautiful and exciting with amazing cities, stunning beaches and coastal scenery and offers the most National Parks within the USA while giving you more ways in which to enjoy your holiday. Its best to experience this trip with a self-drive and you can even venture up the pacific coast highway for some breath-taking uninterrupted coastal views”

San Francisco Tips

Ali McCurdy, Travel Expert
San Francisco
  • The city's famously finicky microclimates change from hour to hour and neighborhood to neighborhood, so the rule of thumb is: wear layers. Bring a t-shirt for lunch on sunny Potrero Hill; bring your down parka for sunset at Ocean Beach.
  • Alcatraz is America's most infamous penitentiary as well as one of the most visited attractions in California, day passes must be booked with the tourist board.

Los Angeles Tips

Ashling O Hara, Travel Expert
Los Angeles
  • Drive one of the world’s most famous scenic drives, Mulholland winds from the Hollywood Hills, across the spine of the Santa Monica Mountains, and west towards the Pacific Ocean.
  • Many people dream of being Julia Roberts shopping on Rodeo Drive, but few can afford to buy from the array of high-end designers seen in the film Pretty Woman. So window-shopping is the order of the day.
