The West Coast boasts plenty of beautiful places to explore. From Oregon and Washington to California and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, these are just some of the reasons you should visit The West Coast. Below are some great trip ideas for you to explore:
Pacific Coast Highway
Possibly one of the most popular road trips, the Pacific Coast Highway (also known as Route 101) gives you a little piece of everything that has to do with California. By leaving Los Angeles early enough to beat the LA-famous rush hour traffic, and making a couple stops in Ojai and Santa Barbara, you have already visited some beautiful places.
Head down to San Luis Obispo as well, where you can spend the afternoon exploring the craft breweries or wine tasting. Another place to visit on your trip is Monterey, where you can explore the Old Fisherman’s Wharf or wander around the busy streets of San Francisco.
From San Diego to Joshua Tree National Park
Leaving San Diego behind is always hard, but if you head east towards Joshua Tree, you will find some beautiful places on the way. One great stop is Temecula, San Diego’s premier destination for wine tasting. You can also treat yourself to a relaxing day at the Desert Hot Springs, where you can indulge in luxurious spa treatments or just lounge around before making your final stop at the Joshua Tree National Park.
The park itself has plenty of activities you can do, such as rock climbing, horseback riding, hiking, and camping.
From Portland, Oregon to California
After making all of your obligatory stops in Portland such as the numerous coffee shops, VooDoo donuts, Powell’s City of Books and Mount Hood, you need to head down south on Interstate 5 to discover what else Oregon has to offer. One-stop is the Crater Lake National Park, known to be the deepest and clearest lake in the U.S. and surrounded by 2,000-foot tall mountains. The view is unbelievable.
After this, you can head down to your final destination of Redwoods National Park in California, where you can take in the scenic drives through the redwood forests that are home to some of the oldest trees on earth. For more ideas, you can visit Alaska and Canada and fly through some of the beautiful wilderness and forests the places offer.
Discovering The West Coast via private jet charter will make your mini trips lifetime memories.
