Overview

The third-largest state in the United States is a place of enormous diversity. From the Redwood forests in the north to the sunny beaches of the Pacific Coast, the Sierra Nevada mountains and Central Valley, visitors will be spoiled for choice. The question travellers should ask themselves before booking cheap flights to California is not what to do, but where to start?

The four biggest cities in California are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco. Each of these cities has more than enough to occupy visitors, between museums, galleries, shopping, world-class dining and exciting nightlife. Outside these bustling metropolises, natural wonders are in abundance.

The beaches of Orange County contrast with the national parks of High Sierra (Yosemite, King’s Canyon and Sequoia). Wine country (Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley) reaches into the Redwood forests and trails of the North Coast.

One of the best-kept secrets in California is the Shasta Cascade region in the far north of the state. Covering 20 per cent of California, this uncrowded region of national forests, parks, lakes, rivers and waterfalls offers the chance to refresh and recharge before heading back to the work-a-day world.
