California Bucket List

California has a lot to offer with all its incredible beaches, glamorous imagery, and diverse culture. But did you know that there’s more to California than beach life and celebrities? If you’re California Dreamin’, check out our bucket list of top spots to get you started!

Cruise From LA to Mexico

Who doesn’t love a good cruise? What about a cruise with multiple destinations? Take a cruise that starts in Los Angeles and whisks you off to the Mexican Riviera. With so many cruises available, choose how long you have to spend soaking up the sights and enjoying the sun before returning to the City of Angeles!

Road Trip to the Big Sur

The Big Sur is a place that you truly have to experience in person! The Big Sur is a rugged stretch of coastline that runs from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Highway 1 runs the entire way down the coastline, which means the entire drive is the scenic route. You can pull over at viewpoints to enjoy the stunning views, and don’t forget to pull over anywhere that calls to you!

Spend a Day on Catalina Island

Catalina Island is a small channel island just southwest of Los Angeles. The boat ride over is enough to make you want to go. It’s a lovely ride where you’ll likely see dolphins going on the journey alongside you! Go snorkeling in the clear water, enjoy botanical gardens, and watch untouched wildlife while you’re there. There are also plenty of quaint restaurants and shops to enjoy for the day!

Bike from Venice Beach to Santa Monica

If there is one thing, you really need to do in California that is simple but so worth it, it’s rent a bike and bike from Venice Beach to Santa Monica. How can a bike ride be on a bucket list? Well, this 3-mile bike ride is leisurely and lovely! There is usually always a beautiful breeze and wonderful views of the beach. You can stop at hops along the way or take a break at one of the bars or restaurants on the way through! There are also some famous spots like Ocean Front Walk, Muscle Beach, and the Santa Monica Pier along the way.

See the Golden Gate Bridge

You've seen the Golden Gate Bridge in movies and on TV, but have you seen it in person?
