Description

Drive up the iconic Highway 1 for a 3-day exploration of the best of the California coast. Admire the beaches of Santa Barbara, the sea cliffs of Big Sur, the natural splendor of Yosemite National Park, and the urban charm of San Francisco on this tour of the Golden State.

Day 1
From LA, head north to Santa Barbara, where vineyards roll over seaside hills. Stop in a Spanish mission to learn about the region's history, and spend some time shopping in the Danish community of Solvang. Continuing up the coast, take in the spectacular, forested scenery of Big Sur, explore the beachfront boutiques of Carmel-by-the-Sea, and arrive at your San Francisco hotel by nightfall.

Day 2
Wake up in the City by the Bay and appreciate the sights from the water with a cruise from Fisherman's Wharf. Snap a postcard-worthy photo of the Golden Gate Bridge, then head back to land to explore vibrant San Francisco neighborhoods like Union Square, Chinatown, and Nob Hill. Catch a nighttime view of the sparkling city skyline from the Bay Bridge on the way to your hotel in Modesto.

Day 3
In the summer, cross through the Joaquin Valley to Yosemite. Nestled in the Sierra Nevada range, this national park's breathtaking natural features include El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridal Veil Falls, and the towering Sequoias in Mariposa Grove. In the winter, tour the magnificent grounds and estate at Hearst Castle, a turn-of-the-century playground for the rich and famous, before your return drive to LA.
