7) California Road Trip

Instead of booking a flight and paying for pricy hotels, why not try a different vacation style? A road trip is a great way to see a new destination, and no state offers more than California. From the laid-back west coast vibes to the staggeringly beautiful scenery, a road trip up California’s famous Highway 1 is an adventurous and cost-effective way to see the Golden State. Popular starting/finishing points are San Diego and San Francisco. In between you’ll experience endless ocean vistas and coast-hugging curves of the state’s famous Big Sur Coast between Carmel and San Simeon. Pass through charming cities like Santa Barbara, Monterey, and Santa Cruz and explore the chilled-out beach towns of San Diego county. Take 5-7 days to fully appreciate all that Highway 1 has to offer. Traveling by trailer, camper van, or pitching a tent, makes this the most affordable ways to experience California.
