California is a state that is full of so many great things to do it will make your head spin. Where do you get started? Perhaps you want to explore San Francisco Bay, head off to Los Angeles, San Diego or Napa Valley. Northern California is also full of fun places of interest. As you get ready to decide where your California travels are going to take you, let me give you some ideas about some attractions and things to do that you might want to add to your itinerary.
You can travel California again and again, so don’t feel like you have to do everything at once. How does Alcatraz Island at Fort Mason sound? The reviews say that you can take a night tour. Make sure you hold your partner close to you as you make your way through the facility. All joking aside, it sounds like a really interesting experience, and it is actually said to be the top attraction in the entire state.
While you are in the San Francisco area, you want to be sure that you visit the Bay Area and take a drive along the Golden Gate Bridge, too. In fact, there are over 500+ attractions in San Francisco. My mom grew up there in the 60s and early 70s, and I have always wanted to visit the city.
Have you heard of Glacier Point? It is a place of interest within Yosemite National Park, and you are talking about amazing panoramic views. In order to get to Glacier Point, you have to hike four miles.
It is not something everyone gets to see, and that type of attraction always makes me think of one thing, romance. Take your time along that trail, bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the views once you reach Glacier Point.
At some point when making your way around California, you have to go to Disneyland Park in Anaheim! What a thrill that would be. Check out the Indiana Jones Ride, Splash Mountain, the Haunted Mansion and so much more.
You will have a blast in Disneyland, and there are plenty of other places of interest in the Anaheim area, too. You aren’t too far from Los Angeles either, a great place to get a luxury car in.
I have been to LA before, so it would perhaps be last on my own personal list. Still, LA is a great place to visit and have some fun. You have to make it to Hollywood at some point, right? I would also want to make it to Orange County CA and Newport Beach. And, another popular place of interest is Coronado Island, which is in the San Diego area.
While most of what you might enjoy doing is all over southern California, don’t forget northern California as mentioned. I hear Clint Eastwood has a cabin up there somewhere. California is a beautiful state with so many places of interest. Have a great time on your travels, and make sure you plan more California vacations, each one different than the last.
