California is a state of many surprises, from high desert to mountain lakes, and from the high-rise towers of Los Angeles to the redwood forests of northern California. It's a place where you can go from chill surf town to ride your horse down a canyon in the same day. You can bask on the golden sands of Southern California beaches or take a hike along one of its dramatic coastal trails. The ultimate getaway, this trip gives you the opportunity to hit all of California’s best sites. Everything from surfing to skiing can be found along the coast, while more cultured and traditional spots like Santa Barbara offer unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean. Nothing says luxury like finding your own unique spot along the waterfront, hiking through mountains or just relaxing around a fire by a lake.
