I will be staying in San Diego, CA for a week but I can travel to various locations….I am already planning on visiting Hollywood, possibly Disneyland, Alcatrez Island, Golden Gate Bridge, and The Richard Nixon Burial site. If you’ve been to any of these places please tell me a little about your experience! This is my first time going to Cali. so please if you’ve been or live there please recommend sites, places, or things I should do! Also I do have a question concerning Beverly Hills and the homes of the Famous Actors/Actresses is it free to drive around and spot the houses or must you pay and take a tour? And can you see Jack Nicholsons house??? Best Answer gets 10 points! 🙂
Do not go to Los Angeles… there’s nothing there. It’s not like what you see on TV, it’s really dirty and you won’t just find a celebrity walking down the street. With that being said, San Diego and San Francisco are beautiful, fun places.
San Diego – Known for the beaches and perfect sunny weather. We have a lot of beaches but I recommend you go to Coronado Beach. There’s also the Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Torrey Pines State Reserve for hiking, kayaking, jet skiing, bay cruises, Mexican food on every corner, and way more too many things to name.
San Francisco – I’ve been there once and it is absolutely amazing. It has cooler weather and a more urban culture. Unlike San Diego, you don’t really need a car to get around. Everything is compact and close together. Alcatraz is loads of fun, but you have to purchase the ticket online before hand because they get sold out quickly. And the Golden Gate Bridge is a sight to see, it’s beautiful in person.
All in all, I suggest SD and SF. SD for the laid back culture, amazing beaches, and outdoor activities. SF for the urban feel, rich history, and great night life.
