THE ULTIMATE TWO-WEEK FAMILY ITINERARY TO CALIFORNIA

Is there anywhere quite as dynamic and desirable as California? Familiar from a thousand and one films, this vast state still has some unexpected treasures up its sleeve, and whilst your kids will be in awe of Alcatraz and delighted by Disneyland, they’ll be equally impressed by the surreal starkness of Death Valley, by the humpback whales that migrate through Monterey Bay and by the dramatic coastal drive along craggy Big Sur.

In two unforgettable summer weeks, you’ll road-trip from the fog-shrouded hills of San Francisco to glitzy LA, hiking through Yosemite National Park and exploring Gold Rush ghost towns along the way. You’ll cycle over the Golden Gate Bridge, raft rivers or try stand-up paddleboarding, go celebrity-spotting in Hollywood and bask on Southern California’s sun-baked beaches. They don’t call it the Golden State for nothing.
