Road Trip! California Dreaming

June 6, 2013

A couple of months ago, my husband and I went on a trip of a life time (for us East coasters) to California! We have always wanted to visit the West coast, so we started planning and our relaxing vacation turned into a 2 week road trip extravaganza! We really had no idea as to which cities we should stop at, how long at each location and which attractions were definitely worth our while. Thankfully with a little help from a friend in California, we were able to map together one crazy schedule!

We decided that we were going to squeeze in as many places as possible! We flew into Las Vegas and stayed there for the weekend. We then hit the road down to Arizona, to check out the amazing Grand Canyon! Next stop: Joshua Tree National Park and a few relaxing days in Palm Springs. Then it was over to Surf City USA – Huntington Beach! We stayed right on the PCH and had a gorgeous view of the ocean! We made time to see the Hollywood sights, then started our trek up to San Fran! To top all of that traveling off, we spent our last couple of days at the beautiful Yosemite National Park! Wow, I am getting tired again just thinking about it!

It truly was a trip of a lifetime! We were amazed to find out that it never rains in California, and we had the top down of our red convertible Mustang every day of the trip! We loved every location so much, I wouldn’t be able to pick a favorite. I cannot wait to one day return the West coast! Check out the video below of some of our trip highlights! (yes we can be ridiculous while traveling – don’t judge!)
