I'm going to California, where should I visit ?

I'm going to California in late August, where should I visit that would be some good site seeing locations? I want to get the best out of my trip seeing as I never travel. I'm going to be staying with a close friend of mine that lives there and we're going to go to China Town and stuff like that and the Walk of Fame, but I want to know some other good places to go to. Thanks (:

    San Diego is one of the nicest cities in the country. It's a major tourist destination and they know how to treat visitors right.

    Mission and Pacific Beach are your best bet for fun in the sun. Belmont Park has a vintage wooden roller coaster (one of two remaining seaside coasters on the west coast) as well as other rides. There is a boardwalk that runs the entire 3 mile length of both beaches. It's a great place to rent a bike or skates.

    Some must see attractions are the world famous Zoo, Sea World, and Balboa Park. Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the country. You can get a park passport which allows you entry to a dozen museums as well as the zoo.

    These are in no particular order, just places I remember going last May when I was visiting my brother:

    1. China Town

    2. San Fransisco

    3. Fisherman's Wharf

    4. Japanese Tea Garden

    5. Golden Gate Bridge

    6. Monterey Bay

    7. There is a little town called Walnut Creek, it's very nice and laid back. Just some shops, bars, and such.

    8. Make a trip to In n' Out burgers

    Enjoy your trip, I'm sure you'll have a blast!!!

    Hi there, good, do you favor film stars? Amusement parks? If now not, then I tremendously advocate San Francisco or San Diego. If you do then of direction, Los Angeles is a definite guess. San Francisco is a neat old position, I have not been there, however my moms and dads were there a couple of occasions and love riding up freeway one million in a convertable. It is correct at the ocean, and has older motels. That is town that was once close to utterly destroyed through the exceptional earthquake. San Diego has plenty of historical past as good I feel, however watch out in case you move there in April, my manufacturer is doing a tremendous exchange exhibit there and we are anticipating approximately 60,000 eye medical professionals to move there and plenty of the motels are promoting out rapid lol. (Just a phrase of caution!) So, my suggestions are San Francisco or Los Angeles. I've been to LA and cherished it, and wish to move once more. My moms and dads were to San Fran two or three occasions and my aunt simply received again from there from a trade travel and cherished it. Lots to do there.

    All kinds of Indian Casinos.

    Golden State park in San Francisco.

    Old gold mining towns

    Wine tasting tours.

    Amusement parks.

    Old Missions , the one west of Buellton, Ca is the best.

    It all depends how far you wish to travel and how much time you have.
