Southern California’s warm Pacific waters attract sun worshippers and surfers alike. San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles are crammed full of great beaches and make perfect surfing spots. Some of the best beaches include Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Coronado, La Jolla and Santa Monica – where you’ll also find the world famous Venice Beach boardwalk. Venice Beach is an eclectic, funky and unique place, and really does have something for everyone. Not to be missed is Muscle Beach, where Arnold Schwarzenegger and other legendary bodybuilders pumped iron in the 1970s.
Let’s not forget the Wine Country as another great reason to visit! Napa and Sonoma in Northern California are two of the biggest and best wine producing regions in the world, and travellers are welcomed to many of the vineyards for tastings and tours. If that wasn’t enough, the scenery is fantastic too!
