California holidays have something for everyone. You can tour the lush vineyard areas and the rolling hills of the Wine Country to sample top-class wines and gourmet foods and hike through beautiful countryside teeming with wildlife with stunning views of mountains or the sea. Marvel at trees so tall, their canopies almost disappear into the clouds and at weird rock formations carved out by the sea. Dare to venture into Death Valley, one of the hottest places on the planet.
There are small quaint towns with farmers' markets and roadside fruit stalls. You can visit San Francisco with its thriving arts scene and beaches, or Monterey Bay with its excellent aquarium. Choose from horseback riding, skiing, hiking, white-water rafting and rock climbing; the list of activities and sights to see on a California holiday is endless, the only hard part is choosing what to do.
