Fly Drive Holiday Ideas in California

Arrive in San Francisco one of the most  visted cities in USA to begin your fantastic fly drive holiday in California. Take a famous cable car around the hilly streets and view the Golden Gate Bridge with its distinctive orange structures that gazes out over the bay. Visit infamous Alcatraz, the prison on the rock and watch sea lions sunbathing on the headland at Point Reyes.

Sacramento is the capital and it is steeped in gold rush history and full of museums and historic buildings. Natural beauty surrounds the waters of Lake Tahoe and Hamster cottage travel recommend a fly drive around the rim in summer for stunning alpine views. Sutter Creek is an undiscovered historic gem and  well worth visiting. Yosemite National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty and will be a highlight on your fly drive holiday to California. Make your way through the bleak but beautiful landscapes of Death Valley on the final leg of your USA road trip.

Las Vegas beckons and is your last port of call on your self drive holiday with its neon lights and famous "strip". An adults playground of themed hotels, casinos and shows this is a city that needs to be seen!

Your fly drive holiday ends in Las Vegas with your flight home.
