Yosemite National Park

Located in the northern region of California, Yosemite National Park is home to one of the most majestic waterfalls, valleys, and mountains your entire family can explore. You absolutely have to take a look at the Yosemite Valley and what the ice age has done to it, forever transforming its shape. Finally, there is the sheer rock face of El Capitán, and the Mariposa Grove, where some of the world’s largest sequoias can be found.

Death Valley

Sporting quite a scary name, Death Valley is one of the California’s deserts. This place can be quite harsh, but it’s the perfect choice if your family is geared towards being adventurous. This is the home of the Death Valley National Park, a destination your kids will surely enjoy. Death Valley is perfect for hiking, paddling on Badwater Lake, sightseeing and stopping at the lookouts for admiring the scenery.

Knott’s Berry Farm

If you’re in California, it’s almost a crime not to visit this famous theme park. Featuring rides, shows, first-class restaurants, special events, performances, and more, this tourist attraction is practically guaranteed to keep the kids busy at all times. If you decide to stay at their hotels, you will also get a reduced price on the tickets. How awesome is that?

Redwood National Forest

This is one of the most peaceful and calm destinations in California. If your kids are shy and just want their precious peace and quiet, why not take them on a walk around the Redwood National Forest? After you get tired of walking, just stop by the bookstore or relax at the sandy beach.

Big Sur

Big Sur is a long stretch of coastline. Campers, sun-bathers, nature-lovers and hikers will absolutely love it there, especially the Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. If you’re looking for something magnificent the nature can offer, make sure to stop by the glorious Pfeiffer Falls.

Lake Tahoe

Up high in the mountains, you will find Lake Tahoe, one of the favorite destinations for beach goers and boaters. When the winter frost shows its teeth, the terrain is most suitable for skiing.

Napa Valley Wine Train

If you’re looking for a relaxing train ride though the countryside full of vineyards and wineries, you absolutely need to experience what the Napa Valley Wine Train has to offer. If you end up feeling exhausted from the ride, you can rest up at the Marriott SpringHill Suites Napa Valley hotel that’s located near the track.


With the beautiful places we’ve mentioned, we’ve barely scratched the surface of everything California has to offer. No matter what kind of activities your family is into, there is bound to be something suitable for every taste.
