Seven-Day California Road Trip Itinerary

Don't limit your seven-day road trip to the UK. Instead, jump on a plane and land in sunny California, where you can rent a car and go on an epic road trip. California is filled with beautiful sites, from awe-inspiring coastline drives to buzzing and lively cities. If you find yourself on holiday in California, there's only one place to start your journey: Los Angeles. The City of Angels is where you'll land, and you can discover favourites like Santa Monica Pier and Hollywood Boulevard. On day two, drive to Santa Barbara for a more relaxing vibe before spending some time in Morro Bay on day three. Next, see the beauty of Big Sur and the laid-back vibes of Carmel-by-the-Sea. End your trip with a stop in San Jose and San Francisco, where you can see the Golden Gate Bridge and ride the trams for the day if you're tired of driving.
