California Is Sunshine And Fun
Sunshine and fun are what California in the USA is all about. This Pacific Ocean bathed state was one of the last to be incorporated into the union but soon became one of the first on the list for travel and holiday entertainment. It shone bright with so many stars when Hollywood opened its gates. And talking about gates was known for its innovative construction methods when it built the Golden Gate Bridge. And it was Walt Disney’s choice when he decided to build the happiest place on earth, creating Disneyland. It is easy to travel up and down the whole Califonia coastline with a fantastic car rental from any airport location, visiting museums, natural parks, and other theme parks, making your California dream come true.
Los Angeles Radiates with Excitement
Los Angeles, LA, or as some call it ‘ The City of Angels’, is saturated with all kinds of entertainment. What firstly calls the visitor’s attention is anything that has to do with Hollywood and its stars. The first stop is usually Hollywood Boulevard to the Walk of fame, where you can see whose hand and footprints have a likeness to yours while visiting the Kodak Theatre, famous for the Oscar celebrations. And if you are lucky, you might share a fitting room with someone famous as you go shopping on Rodeo Drive in the Beverly Hills neighborhood, at Santa Monica Square, or on Hollywood Drive. From Mulholland Drive, you can click away at the famous ‘Hollywood’ sign, a symbol known to everyone worldwide. All this excitement and it has not even cost you a penny!
Not too far outside of LA, in Anaheim, you can find the ‘Happiest Place on Earth,’ which everyone knows is Disneyland. I went there thinking that I would be trailing around after my children while they lived the dream of their lives, but I can assure you that I was more thrilled and enthused than my kids. I relived childhood adventures that I thought had long passed with my buddies Mickey and Minnie and shared new ones with my family. The price of $86 for adults and $76 for kids over 9 years of age with transport from our hotel was well worth it. I have been told that Disney world is better, but only seeing is believing. Many friends of mine have even opted for buying apartments in the Los Angeles area so that when they spend their holidays there, they do not have to worry about lodgings. One dream spot is in the Palisades, a small town residential area not far from Sunset Boulevard and only a stone’s throw from the impressive three-mile run cliffs that stop the Pacific from entering.
Crossing California to San Francisco
But if you really want to get a good grip on California, then let’s go down to the Pacific Ocean and over to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. One thing is to stand at a distance and admire its great, but the best is to be part of it. There are bike ride tours over the bridge, which take you along the Bay Trail past various interesting points and then over the 1.7-mile long bridge. But San Francisco would not be complete without a visit to the island of Alcatraz and its piercing prison and museum filled with tingling history. Everything about California makes you tingle!
