California — Travel Tips

  • Rent a car to explore the realm outside of California’s major cities. The Pacific Coast Highway is best experienced with a convertible and the breeze blowing through your hair
  • Public transportation is the way to get around San Francisco and hopping on a streetcar provides the true experience
  • You will definitely need a rental car in Los Angeles because the city sprawls out in every direction. Taxis are expensive and public transportation is almost non-existent
  • San Francisco and the northern coast are chilly year-round, even in August
  • September to early December is when prices on hotels are lowest throughout the state
