Eligibility

California is so much more than the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles, it encompasses everything from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco to gigantic trees of the Sequoia/Kings Canyon.

Los Angeles is the biggest city in California and home to Disneyland, the up-market neighbourhood of Beverley Hills and the craziness of Venice Beach.

San Francisco is one of the most distinctive and appealing cities with fun and friendly locals and home to amazing sites.

Catalina Island is off the gulf of Santa Catalina in California and is only 22 miles long and 8 miles wide. It's often described as a tropical faraway island with all the amenities you'll ever need from restaurants and bars and long winding roads.

Highlights

  • Be in awe of the worlds biggest trees at Redwood National Park
  • Channel your inner-child and soak up everything that Disneyland has to offer.
  • Stroll along State Street in Santa Barbara home to amazing diners, coffeehouses and nightclubs.

Did you know?

  • San Francisco Bay is considered the world's largest landlocked harbour
  • California is home to the annual music and arts festival which is often attended by lots of celebrities every April.
  • The Hollywood Walk of Fame stretches along 15 blocks of Hollywod Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street Hollywood.

Climate

California's climate varies widely dependent on proximity to the coast, generally temperatures in the summer have highs of 30+ degrees and the summers and if you're by the coast it will likely be nice and breezy.
