Who wouldn't love a California Road Trip vacation? This was one of my favorite family trips that we took several years ago. The trip started and ended in Los Angeles, and included big cities like San Francisco, and small cities like beautiful Solvang. We also visited several National Parks, such as Sequoia and Kings Canyon, as well as Yosemite and the Channel Islands. There is the opportunity to go horseback riding on the beach, as well as snorkeling near the Channel Islands. You can throw in some family favorites like riding the cable cars in San Francisco, eating boardwalk food on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and visiting the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
