Why go to California

From the glittering stars of Hollywood to the towering, mist-shrouded redwood trees of the north, no two holidays in California are ever the same. Where will your American adventure take you?

Plan your break in this coastal beauty of a state with the TravelSupermarket guide to California holidays…

Surf dudes, movie stars, tech billionaires… forget everything you think you know about California and its people and prepare to fall in love with one of the most engaging, gorgeous, diverse and sun-drenched states of America.

California is located on the southwest coast of the USA, where the unforgiving mountains of the Old Wild West give way to glorious beaches and the warm waves of the Pacific Ocean.

There are countless reasons to visit. The sights, sounds and celebrities of busy Los Angeles, the almighty peaks of Yosemite National Park, the sizzling Spanish flavours of laidback San Diego, the scorched land of Death Valley… You can also take a break in Monterey, where rugged coastal adventures introduce visitors to Steinbeck Country, or savour a stay among the vines of Wine Country in Northern California. Go Danish in Solvang. Get romantic in Santa Barbara. Be pampered in Palm Springs. Phew! If you are in the market for an exciting holiday, California might just be the dream ticket.

From the hot party scene of San Francisco to the ice-cold slopes around Lake Tahoe, California has the ability to bewitch almost every kind of holidaymaker. Couples, families or groups of friends of all ages - if you can’t find a holiday experience to make you smile in California, you are not looking hard enough.

Take the hassle out of booking your ideal California holiday by using the search tool on TravelSupermarket. We compare a range of fantastic package deals so that you can simply browse and book. When you’ve secured your low-cost holiday, use our price-comparison knowhow to find cheap rates on a range of travel extras, including car hire in California – a must if you hope to see the best bits of the sensational Golden State.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
