January 2022 45>
The Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most iconic and picturesque highway drives not only in the USA, but in the world. You’ll begin your journey in San Francisco, a city renowned for its diverse culture, beautiful scenery both natural and man-made, as well as its world famous landmarks that have been captured in countless Hollywood movies, from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz and Fisherman’s Wharf.
You’ll then travel inland to stay at the foothills of Yosemite National Park. Yosemite National Park is one of the most recognisable locations on the planet, with towering monoliths and mountains, breath-taking waterfalls, diverse flora and fauna and overall pristine wilderness. The Yosemite Valley has been a designated national park since 1890, allowing this area to maintain the uncompromised natural beauty of California.
You’ll then move on to stays in Monterey and Santa Maria before reaching the world-famous Los Angeles. Los Angeles is the entertainment capital of the world, a bustling diverse city that has the pleasure of being home to iconic beaches, beautiful weather and more things to do than there are days in the year. From walking on the stars of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, surfing the famous beaches or eating in on of the many Michelin Star Restaurants in the city.

San Francisco is one of those cities that needs no introduction; like Hollywood and New York, this city already enjoys international renown for everything from sightseeing to shopping to entertainment. Popular San Francisco attractions include fine museums, theatres and destination neighbourhoods like Chinatown, Union Square and Fisherman's Wharf. One sure way to see the sights is to book a double-decker bus tour of the city, or cruise out to Alcatraz or over to see charming Sausalito and the giant redwoods of Muir Woods. Other favourite day trips can include a drive up to award-winning wineries in Napa and Sonoma.
Los Angeles "City of Angels" is as much an idea as it is a physical city and covers an area of 6500 square miles. With ten major shopping districts, an incredible variety of dance, music, theatre, theme parks, professional sporting events, television and motion picture production, L.A. is the undisputed "Entertainment Capital of the World". LA runs deeper than her blonde beaches, rolling hills and beemers-for-days would have you believe. She’s a myth. A beacon for countless small-town dreamers, rockers and risk-takers, an open-minded angel who encourages her people to live and let live without judgement or shame where it has given us the like of Quentin Tarantino, Jim Morrison and Serena Williams just to name a few.
