These three destinations are truly unmissable on a trip to California, and the best way to fully explore them is to jump behind the wheel of a car. Los Angeles is one of California's coolest cities, combining the glamour of Hollywood with the fun of theme parks, all just a few miles from stunning beaches. San Diego is a vast contrast; take a relaxing stroll through Balboa Park and soak up the rich culture of the historic old town. Finish off the trip in Palm Springs, a lush oasis in the middle of the desert where there's countless ways to relax and unwind.

Day 1

Destination 3: Palm Springs

Palm Spring was once a glam getaway for Hollywood A-listers, where the likes of Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra golfed, wined and dined. With year round events and glorious weather, it's no surprise that celebrities and other visitors are flocking to Palm Springs to relax and unwind. Ascend to 8,516 feet on the Palm Springs Aerial Tram to Mountain Station and really appreciate the beauty of this city in the desert.

Day 1

Destination 2: San Diego

Anyone who enjoys a cold beer on a warm day will love a visit to one of San Diego's 85+ craft breweries. Take a tour of a microbrewery to watch the magic happen, or just savour the end results with a perfectly designed beer-pairing menu, an increasingly popular idea in many restaurants. Combine with freshly caught seafood, alfresco dining and sunset over the waterfront for the perfect evening.

Day 1

Destination 1: Beverly Hills

Live like a celebrity in Beverly Hills window shopping the ultra luxury boutiques on Rodeo Drive and drinking cocktails on exclusive rooftop bars. Then venture out a little to the iconic sights of Hollywood, where ideas come to mind and stars are born. Take a Universal Studios Tour to learn how the films are made. Then take a ride down the Sunset Strip and see where bands like Led Zepplin made their music, ending up at the Hollywood Bowl to catch an open air concert under the stars.
