A Californian road trip is on many people’s bucket list. Offering the chance to enjoy some incredible adventures and see some of America’s most famous cities, it really is the trip of a lifetime. My brother just got back from a trip to California, Vegas and Death Valley and it got me thinking - if I was lucky enough to visit this part of the world, where would I go? What would I want to see?

How do you even start planning a big trip like this? Making a list of the destinations you want to visit is a great start.

To help give you some inspiration, here are five places to add to your Californian road trip bucket list.

1. Los Angeles

The home of Hollywood and its many stars, you have to visit LA during your time in California. If you’re into sightseeing, you’ll find plenty to occupy you during your stay, from the Walk of Fame to the Hollywood sign, while the studio tours are also not to be missed. Soak up the glitz and glamour and explore one of America’s most well-known cities.

2. San Diego

A visit to Southern California must include a trip to San Diego. As well as the world-famous San Diego Zoo, the city also boasts some of California’s hottest weather. Enjoy a luxury stay at the Courtyard San Diego Mission Valley, which is conveniently located to enjoy the best that San Diego has to offer. Make sure you spend some time at Mission Beach and enjoy soaking up some of those rays.

3. Las Vegas

Okay, so Las Vegas isn’t in California (it’s in Nevada), but it’s close enough to form a part of your American road trip. While many people claim that the city is an expensive place to visit, there are ways to enjoy Las Vegas on a budget. Spend time exploring the many hotels and casinos, take in some shows and enjoy pure entertainment in this must-visit destination.

4. San Francisco

San Francisco offers a complete change of pace from anywhere else in California and is a must-see to soak up the sights and sounds that this incredible city has to offer. San Francisco offers plenty of things to do, from seeing the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz prison, and the nightlife isn’t bad either. If you prefer warmer temperatures, make sure you visit during the summertime, as temperatures can dip in northern California during the winter.

5. Anaheim

Well, it wouldn’t be a visit to California without a trip to Anaheim and Disneyland! The original Disneyland Park, there is plenty of fun and excitement to be had here during your trip. Stay outside of the city to enjoy the best deals on hotels, or splash out and stay at one of the Disney hotels and experience a stay like no other. Home to two parks, the original Disneyland Park and the Disney California Adventure Park, it’s worth spending a couple of days here to make sure you see everything.

A visit to California is an experience like no other, and if you make it a multi-destination trip, you’ll get to enjoy some incredible sights. Looking for travels a little closer to home?
