California Travel Tips

California Valentine Escapes

Published on: February 13, 2018


On Valentine’s Day studies show that people think gifts such as candy, cards, flowers and jewelry are OK, but experiences are preferred. It’s the same theme found in surveys of travelers. They want to see and do something unique and new.

It’s not too hard to find it in California. With¬†theme parks and beaches among the top destinations, you can spend over a decade exploring 1,000 miles of California coast and rarely see the same thing twice. In fact, it’s a real challenge seeing the state’s entire coastline–but you can try!

The photos above highlight a few of our favorite coastal experiences:
