America's most populous coastal state makes a fantastic destination for those who want a variety of experiences and nature on their vacation. A honeymoon in California can mean relaxing in the sun on Newport Beach, but it can also mean historical outings in San Francisco, exploring the Napa Valley wine region, or discovering the wilderness of Yosemite National Park and the mountains.
California's coast stretches for 1,100 miles along the Pacific, and with so many beaches to choose from, it's no surprise that a honeymoon in California usually includes a day at the beach. Learn to surf in Malibu, or head north to find a romantic cove. With almost 300 days a year of sunshine, a honeymoon in California is perfect for sun-worshippers.
Part of the beauty of a honeymoon in California is the flexibility to combine a few days at the beach with all the attractions of big cities. San Francisco has a number of "must-see" attractions, such as the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, cable cars, and Pier39, where you can enjoy a bowl of fresh clam chowder while you watch street performers or sea lions swimming out in the bay. A short drive from San Francisco is Napa Valley, one of the world's most famous wine-producing regions. Why not take in a tour and a tasting at a local winery with views of the surrounding hillside; and what better place to pick up a souvenir of your honeymoon in California? You can also take in the sights in Los Angeles and then explore Topanga State Park, with gorgeous hilltop views of the ocean.
California's landscapes also include mountains, lakes, and one of the best places to explore the wilderness, Yosemite National Park. Covering an area of over 1,000 square miles, Yosemite offers stunning cliffs and waterfalls, miles of hiking trails, camping spots, and wildlife. California will surely enthrall you with its sheer variety!
