California: The travel destination which offers something for everyone
Not only does California offer countless beaches, where you can sample fresh seafood and learn how to surf but California is also home to some of the United States of America’s most popular tourist attractions. Examples of which include theme parks such as Disneyland, Knots Berry Farm and Universal Studios and historical attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, the latter of which are both located in sunny San Fransisco.
If you or one of your travel companions are a self-professed animal lover, make sure to visit San Diego as it’s home to San Diego Zoo. The zoo is one of the highest rated zoos in the world as well as Sea World, where you’ll be able to get up close and personal with a variety of marine creatures such as orcas, manta rays, and polar bears.
If you’d prefer a more sedate vacation, you want to visit Napa Valley, where you’ll get the opportunity to tour a variety of world class vineyards. Some vineyards will even offer to match wine to your choice of meal, should you visit a vineyard for lunch.
If you plan on visiting California for the first time, it’s also well worth visiting Hollywood and taking a picture outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater, where you’ll also be able to view some of the stars on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. If you don’t manage to spot a star, while you’re touring Hollywood, don’t worry just visit Madame Tussauds, where you’ll be able to take photographs with realistic wax figures of your favorite stars.
Lastly, if you want to look out over Los Angeles, make sure to drive to the Griffith Observatory, which overlooks Los Angeles and boasts views of both the Pacific Ocean and downtown Los Angeles. Inside the observatory, you’ll find a state of the art planetarium.
