Away from California’s two most iconic cities, there are a number of other gems just waiting to be explored. The wonderful southern California city of San Diego and desert oasis Palm Springs are both within two hours drive of Los Angeles, making them a great addition to a multi-centre holiday.
Dotted along the scenic Californian coastline, the beautiful seaside towns of Santa Barbara, Monterey and Santa Cruz provide a welcome haven for holiday makers. With soft white sand beaches and a laidback vibe throughout, these towns offer the perfect backdrop for a relaxing beach getaway.
