California here we come… Pick up your hire campervan from Los Angeles airport, and head out and explore these five exciting things in California.

Disneyland A visit to Disneyland in Anaheim is every kid’s wish come true and every adult’s childhood dream. Touted as California’s premier family destination, this amusement park is home to theme rides, games, shopping precincts, entertainment and popular restaurants. Here, there’s something for each member of the family.

Big Sur A stunning and iconic stretch of coastline that’s hard to forget once you’ve seen it in real life. There are splendid views all the way along Highway 1 with hiking, camping and sun bathing among the perfect passtimes around here. Explore the hiking trails, lookouts and waterfalls hidden within Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park along the way.

Lake Tahoe This beautiful lake is an exciting destination at any time of year. It’s located along the border of California and Nevada. In summer it’s paradise for beach goers and boaters, while in the winter months, it becomes a playground for snow lovers, with the surrounding mountains offering excellent trails for skiiers and snowboarders.

Yosemite National Park Yosemite’s dramatic peaks overlooking national parkland have graced the covers of some of the world’s finest travel magazines, and fill the photo albums of every traveller to the region. It boasts valleys, rivers, waterfalls and granite domes along with many other famous sites scattered throughout the park.

Hollywood Walk of Fame Hang with the stars on the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard! Completing the Hollywood Walk of Fame should be number one on every traveller’s to do list. There are more than 2,500 terrazzo and brass stars with the names of iconic actors, musicians, directors and producers embedded in the sidewalks along 18 blocks.
