Top Things to do in California

Perhaps the most iconic symbol of California is the Golden Gate Bridge. Indeed, no trip would be complete without partaking in this technological wonder from a first-hand perspective. Located in San Francisco Bay, viewers will be treated to a one-of-a-kind spectacle that exists nowhere else in the entire world. Nearby sights will also include the former prison of Alcatraz (which can now be viewed by means of a guided tour) as well as the unforgettable San Francisco skyline. While car hire services are available, many instead choose to take a foot path across the bridge to better appreciate its true size and scope.

Santa Barbara is another location not to be missed. Often dubbed the “American Riviera”, this luxurious district is home to a considerable number of celebrities. One of the unique amenities in regards to this location is that its climate is notably warmer and drier than that of nearby Los Angeles. Not only are there countless dining and shopping choices to enjoy, but the wineries here are some of the most respectable in the entire world. Spending a tranquil day browsing the Mission-style architecture and sipping a few glasses of wine on an outdoor terrace is an excellent way to appreciate the more laid-back atmosphere that California has to offer.

For those who enjoy the driving experience, the Pacific Coast Highway should never be missed. It is said that this highway is second only to the famous Route 66, and for good reason. It stretches all of the way from the northern tip of the Baja Peninsula to Washington state. Nearly 500 miles long, it is perhaps most known for its panoramic views of the ocean on one side and mountains on the other. There are tourist stops along the way and this is a great option for those who wish to enjoy a first-hand look at the entire western coast.
