Soak up the breathtaking panoramas of rugged shorelines and towering redwoods near Mendocino and sample the exquisite vintages of Napa Valley. Farther southwards will find you driving along the Marin Headlands as you approach lively San Francisco, with its iconic Golden Gate Bridge and such landmarks as Chinatown (the largest in the United States), Fisherman's Warf and the Ferry Building Marketplace. With its charming streets, scenic waterfront, excellent museums and parks, and its world-class culinary culture, San Francisco alone is a luxury vacation destination of a lifetime.

Home to Mission Santa Barbara -- the "crown jewel" of California missions -- and host to countless first-rate wineries along with excellent cuisine, shopping and surf-and-sand relaxation, Santa Barbara is a can't-miss destination between San Francisco and Los Angeles. From its glistening beach cities to the winding roads of the Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles is the world's glamor capital with all the makings of a luxury vacation and where you'll find 5-star resorts along the coast to luxury hotels housed in historic Hollywood buildings and sleek skyscrapers. Packed with scenic, cultural, culinary and nightlife attractions, Los Angeles offers something for everyone.
