Combine the magic of Disney® with the magnificent beaches of Santa Monica and San Diego. Start this fantastic family friendly holiday by taking a ride on the Ferris wheel on Santa Monica Pier and dip your toes into the soft golden sands at Santa Monica beach. There is also excellent shopping here in Santa Monica and it serves as a great base to explore other cities within the Los Angeles area via the metro system if you don't fancy battling the traffic.

Spend time with Mickey and Minnie at Disneyland® California and then head down the coast for more of that glorious California sunshine and an abundance of activities in San Diego. The drive along the way down to San Diego will also offer many sights to remember; stop off at Torrey Pines State Park or San Clemente at sunset.
