Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Relax by the water at Venice Beach and Boardwalk and Original Muscle Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at El Pueblo de Los Angeles and Getty Center Publications. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Los Angeles: Adamson House and Malibu Lagoon Museum (in Malibu), Hermosa Beach Pier (in Hermosa Beach) and Manhattan Beach (in Manhattan Beach). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Hollywood Walk of Fame, appreciate the extensive heritage of Venice Canals Walkway, contemplate the long history of The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, and look and learn at Griffith Observatory.

To see photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Los Angeles sightseeing planner.

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Jack London State Historic Park and Twin Peaks are good opportunities to explore the local culture. SS Jeremiah O'Brien and Haas - Lilienthal House will appeal to history buffs.

And it doesn't end there: take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf, explore the engaging exhibits at The Exploratorium, step off the mainland to explore Alcatraz Island, and admire the masterpieces at Palace of Fine Arts Theatre.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the San Francisco travel itinerary creator.
