California is one of the most famous places on Earth, and quite rightly so. It is a terrestrial paradise of round-the-year sun, surf, sand, palm trees and bronzed beautiful people gliding past, and lots of lively beach-styled entertainment, as well as fast-paced modern, glossy and glamorous cities, each with its own distinct character, primeval old growth forests, vast stretches of desert, mountains full of skiing resorts, what more could anyone look for in a vacation destination?
Los Angeles, with its many stylish California vacation rental homes, is glitzy and the place to head to if you’re looking for night-time action as well as fun-in-the-sun beach life, but it also has snow-capped mountains, fine-art museums, fantastic restaurants and shopping malls, and, of course, Hollywood and the guided tours around the homes of the rich and famous. San Francisco is another much sought-after vacation destination, full of fantastic California vacation rental homes, mostly due to the fact that it is probably the most liberal major city in the USA, a city of true individuality and culture, with fantastic view due to its hilly nature, and, like Los Angeles, the scene for so many films that you’ll think you’ve been there before. San Diego represents the more laid-back face of California, easy-going and friendly, and with miles of long white sand beaches.
Moving away from the cities, you have the deserts, hot and forbidding landscapes which have proved irresistible to many adventurous travelers, from the Low Desert regions which contain the opulent Palm Springs, an oasis in the middle of the wilderness, and the High Desert regions, the location of the infamous furnace-like Death Valley, an inhospitable and barren landscape full of volcanic craters which has to be seen and experienced at least once in your lifetime just to get a measure of the extremity of earth’s lands.
You also have California vacation rental homes in the Central Coast region, between Los Angeles and San Francisco, with its white sand beaches, dramatic cliffs and capes and rugged stretches of coastline, as well as many lively coastal towns like Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara, and if you head east you will find yourself in the excellent Yosemite National Park, one of the most incredible geological spectacles you will ever see, with grassy meadows of glorious oak, cedar and fir trees, and near-vertical 3000 feet sheer cliffs lined by dramatic waterfalls cascading down. You also have the enormous giant sequoina trees of Sequoina National Park, the ghost towns of Gold Country, the ski resorts of Lake Tahoe, and so much more, the list of vacation places is just endless if you book up a California vacation rental home.
The weather varies from place to place, with Southern California enjoying round-the-year sun, whereas in the north, winter will see lots of rain, and in the mountains, anytime between October and June is the best time to visit the thriving ski areas.
