The “Golden State” got its name during the 19th-century gold rush, but these days it’s attracting people seeking different kinds of fortunes: techies to San Francisco, actors to Los Angeles and those who just want golden sand between their toes to San Diego. You probably hear this a lot, but California accommodation really does have something for everyone.
Ready for a San Francisco treat? Take a snap with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and practice your seal call at Fisherman’s Wharf before road-tripping east to California hotels in Lake Tahoe or the capital. Take to the slopes in Tahoe or get a history lesson on America’s best state (that’s the locals talking) in Sacramento. Not enough nature for you? The waterfalls and giant sequoias of Yosemite National Park will do the trick.
In the south, get starstruck at the Walk of Fame and party down on famous Sunset Boulevard with Los Angeles accommodation. You’ll be in a great spot to explore LA’s southern sister, too. Chow down on California burritos (yes, they have French fries!) in San Diego, then take some snaps that are sure to make your friends jealous at Sunset Cliffs.
You’ll probably start your journey at one of the two major international airports: San Francisco (SFO) or Los Angeles (LAX). Both airports have plenty of public transport and taxis, but your best option for getting to hotels in California (wherever they may be) is to embrace the car culture. Whether you want an SUV to fit suitcases full of the latest fashions or a convertible to feel the breeze in your hair, check out the awesome car hire options on lastminute.com.au.
Eureka! That’s California’s motto, and it means “I’ve found it!”. Check out California packages on lastminute.com.au, and you’ll see why those intrepid explorers were so excited.
