My California Road Trip

What can you see in one week on a California road trip? Quite a lot, actually! Taking advantage of a week off work, I grabbed some friends and headed up north to road trip the mountains, forests, and seaside cliffs of Northern California. This is a fast-paced recap of my experience. The California Road Trip Travel Montage!

Ever since I moved to LA, I wanted to take a California road trip up north. I’m more of a nature guy and Northern California has some of the best scenery around. I had no idea how to road trip California, but I just sat down one afternoon and planned some of the places I wanted to explore. I researched some California road trip ideas online and then narrowed them down. Our trip took us to six main vacation destinations: Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Shasta, Avenue of the Giants, San Francisco, and Big Sur. Although it was short, I felt like I got a good taste of each location and I can’t wait to go back!

Favorite: Watching the sunset on Glacier Point in Yosemite.
Least Favorite: Not being able to find a hotel for 3.5 hours in San Francisco.

Exploring California for the first time was an awesome experience. It made me want to take a proper vacation in one of these destinations – to slow down a little bit and take it all in.

Hopefully I’ll be able to take more road trips in the near future. I’d love to explore Yosemite in more detail, camp under the stars, and maybe even sleep in my car by choice. California has some of the best vacation spots so I’d love to do another California road trip soon.
