Your Getaway is Waiting in the Golden State
Find Your Favorite California Beach
When you think vacation, you think beaches. And when you think beaches, you think California. California’s beaches range from the infinitely famous to the small and family-friendly. With Best Western hotels found near both, you can experience a getaway full of fun, sun and quite the busy itinerary.
Southern California’s coast is best seen on the beaches of San Diego. Close your eyes and point at a list of beaches in this festive city, and you’ll be more than satisfied. Enjoy a day of surfing at Carlsbad State Beach, or pursue a tranquil stroll along the surf at the stunning La Jolla Shores Beach. For more options on the California coast, head north to central California for everything from whale watching in Morro Bay, to clam digging at Pismo State Beach. Find festivals, food and new friends wherever you find a California beach.
Want to incorporate a little fame in your trip? Head to the Entertainment Capital of the World for a multitude of beaches during the vacation season. The Los Angeles metropolitan area not only grants visitors with the liveliness of the Santa Monica Pier and the famed Venice Beach Boardwalk, but also the family-friendly and mild waters of the Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach. Let’s just not forget the world-famous beaches of Orange County lying just south of L.A. Visit Newport Beach for its pristine Corona del Mar State Beach – a great place for surfing and diving, not to mention sunbathing and volleyball. Then make your way to Huntington Beach for the Bolsa Chica State Beach – your new favorite spot in California.
Whether traveling along the coast of the Golden State or looking for a place to spend the day while visiting friends and family in southern California, you can always depend upon the sand and sun of the west coast. Make your vacation about picnics, surfing and fishing, and California will do the rest.
