A California road trip is high on many people’s travel bucket lists – and for good reason. The Golden State is blessed with glitzy cities, an abundance of tasty local produce, and an easygoing, carefree attitude. And then, of course, there’s the outstanding natural beauty. From ancient forests and sun-scorched deserts to snow-capped mountains and golden beaches, it really has got it all going on. And there’s no better way to experience it than by hitting the open road.
That’s because when you head off on a California road trip, you’ll have the chance to explore multiple places – and you can do so entirely at your own pace. What’s more, you can make stop-offs and detours whenever you feel like it. So as you make your way from San Francisco to Los Angeles down State Route 1, for instance, you might choose to stop and hike through the redwoods near Big Sur, dip your toes in the ocean in Malibu, or tour the wondrously over-the-top Hearst Castle, perched high on a hill near San Luis Obispo.
While coastal drives are the most popular of all California road trips, they’re by no means your only option. After all, this state covers a whopping 424,000 square kilometres – so the possibilities are virtually endless. After a few days in San Francisco, visiting landmarks like Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz, you might want to head inland to discover the glacier-carved canyons, grassy meadows and granite monoliths of Yosemite National Park. Or maybe you want to brave the heat in Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Park before making your way to Los Angeles for a few nights.
Wherever it is you’re keen to go, our travel specialists can plan a California road trip just for you. Just let them know what you want to see and do, and how long you’d like to be away for, and they’ll take care of everything – from flights and accommodation to route planning and car hire.
Whichever part of California you fancy visiting, our travel specialists can help you plan an incredible road trip.
