Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Your inner history buff will appreciate La Brea Tar Pits and Museum and Our Lady Queen of Angels. You'll get in some beach time at Venice Beach and Boardwalk and Will Rogers State Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Los Angeles: Anaheim (Disneyland Park & Disney California Adventure Park) and Malibu (Nicholas Canyon Beach & El Pescador State Beach). Pack the 22nd (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at The Getty Center, admire the masterpieces at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, see the sky in a new way at Griffith Observatory, and get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

Nicknamed the "Entertainment Capital of the World," Las Vegas sits in the middle of a desert in the southern section of Nevada.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Valley of Fire State Park and The Neon Museum. The Mob Museum and Pinball Hall of Fame will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Las Vegas: Pahrump (Pahrump Valley Winery & Sanders Family Winery). Next up on the itinerary: shop like a local with The Strip, explore the striking landscape at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, see the interesting displays at Counts Kustoms, and admire the local landmark of Bellagio Fountains.

To find photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Las Vegas sightseeing planner.

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Exploratorium and Musee Mecanique. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bodega Dunes and Muir Woods National Monument. Get out of town with these interesting San Francisco side-trips: St. Helena (Anderson's Conn Valley Vineyards & V. Sattui Winery), Castello di Amorosa (in Calistoga) and Armstrong Redwood State Reserve (in Guerneville). The adventure continues: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Alcatraz Island, tour the pleasant surroundings at Goat Rock Beach, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Twin Peaks, and take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf.
