Are You Headed To California?

Posted on: 15 May 2018

Since the time you were a child, you were more than likely mesmerized by the magic that is evoked with the very mention of the word California. Perhaps you thought of Hollywood, with its elegant and fascinating movie stars, or maybe you saw movies that showed scenes from beaches in San Diego. And, of course, you probably always wanted to go to Disneyland to meet Mickey Mouse and all of his buddies. Now that you are actually getting to go to California for the first time, here are some things that might help you to plan your trip to California. 

Consider Your Itinerary - Of course, the length of time you have for your stay in California and the amount of money you can spend will help you to determine the things you can do while you're in this fascinating state. For instance, if you are going to have only a short while, consider going to San Diego, where you can go to the beach, see historic missions, go to the famous San Diego Zoo and even drive over to Anaheim to visit Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. If you have your own car with you, you've got it made. If not, consider renting a car or joining a tour that will show you the sights.

An Expanded Stay - If you have allotted several days for your stay in California, a world of diversity is ahead of you. For example, in your own car or in a rented car, consider going to San Francisco and then heading to places like Carmel and Monterey to see John Steinbeck country. Think of visiting the home of William Randolph Hearst, where you will see how the other half lived a life so luxurious that it will blow your mind. And, for sure take a wine vineyard tour while you are in wine country. You'll be guided by professionals who can not only teach you which wines go best with different types of food, but even let you taste them. And, while you're on your wine vineyard tour, don't forget to go to the gift shop, where you can buy the wines you have tasted on your tour and other wine-related souvenirs. Consider buying beautiful wine glasses or wine decanters, cocktail napkins, and individual markers to go on the wine glasses you purchase.
