Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Hammer Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Shop till you drop at Montana Avenue and Amoeba Music. Step out of Los Angeles with an excursion to Disneyland Park in Anaheim--about 30 minutes away. Pack the 30th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, take a leisurely stroll along Santa Monica Pier, browse the different shops at The Grove, and examine the collection at The Getty Center.

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Castello di Amorosa and Armstrong Redwood State Reserve. Bring the kids along to Bodega Dunes and Ghirardelli Square. Venture out of the city with trips to Goat Rock Beach (in Jenner), V. Sattui Winery (in St. Helena) and Muir Woods National Monument (in Mill Valley). There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Alcatraz Island, get curious at Exploratorium, get to know the fascinating history of Filbert Steps, and take a stroll through Twin Peaks.
