Known for its year-round sunshine and beautiful sandy beaches, California is an excellent destination for any awesome family vacation. With over 800 miles of pristine coastline at your fingertips, your California family travel always promises great surf, silky sand and plenty of sun-drenched fun. And when you need to spend some time nursing those sunburns, explore some of the country’s most exciting cities – Los Angeles and San Francisco – where you can visit historic sites, exceptional museums and indulge in California’s laidback lifestyle.
Many forget that California also provides a great family escape during winter months. The versatile state boasts world-renown ski resorts – Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Valley hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics – that draw visitors to their powdered slopes. It must also be noted that the Golden State is also home to many well-known amusement parks, including Disneyland, Universal Studios, LegoLand, Sea World, Magic Mountain and the San Diego Wild Animal Park, making it a great place for families to create lasting memories.
Los AngelesIn its physical landscape (from glittering beaches to shrouded canyons to funky urban quarters), demographics (140 countries and 224 languages are represented here), and culture—yes, culture—Los Angeles is far more varied than it's ever given credit for being, and way more complex. Yes, L.A. often feels like a city planner's nightmare, and, at least in certain locales, it can come off as maddeningly superficial. Yet even a single day reveals the city's myriad, wide-ranging charms: surfing Malibu at sunrise, hitting the Farmer's Market in late morning, lunching at Lucques, shopping on Melrose, watching the sun set from the Getty Center, sipping cocktails on a rooftop lounge beneath the stars.

San DiegoSkyscrapers have shot up in the revamped downtown, but San Diego's ongoing love affair is with nature, sunshine and fresh air. This big city has a small-town feel, where you can join toned, tanned locals surfing at Mission Beach. Tee off at one of 90 golf courses or rollerblade through the lusciously green Balboa Park, home to kid-magnet San Diego Zoo. Pack a laid-back attitude and prepare for a warm welcome, boutique shopping and creative dining in California's grown-up beach town. Read more from the San Diego Travel Guide. (Read more)
San FranciscoYou could spend all your time in San Francisco strolling the familiar visitor zones of Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, hopping the crowded tour boat to Alcatraz, or taking snapshots on a cable car, and have a perfectly blissful time-few other cities, after all, can match this town's charms, even the obvious ones. But what makes San Francisco so incomparable is the sheer breadth of its neighborhoods, its distinct pockets of ever-more-local culture. Within a relatively compact 40 square miles one can find showy Victorian manses and elegant Art Deco skyscrapers; the sprawling, verdant oasis of Golden Gate Park, along with some shockingly good museums; and funky boho bastions filled with independent bookstores and galleries, free-trade coffee shops, and indie-designer ateliers. Oh, and restaurants where everyone's wearing jeans (if that)-but where the food, much of it made with sustainable, local ingredients, is simply sublime. Read more from the editors at Travel+Leisure.

The sunny state of California is often times known for its sandy beaches, Hollywood celebrities and Disneyland theme park. However, this eclectic state also has many other wonderful features that may be missed on a first-time family trip. Allow us to introduce you to: the rest of California. With stunning national parks like Yosemite, driftwood-strewn Northern California beaches like Point Reyes, and soaring mountaintops with world class skiing in Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Lakes, Northern & Central California provide the perfect place for nature-loving families to experience the beautiful serenity of this captivating region. Or, if you’d like to escape both sea and snow, Palm Springs allows you to kick-back and enjoy the quiet heat while the kids splash around in the pool. However your family likes to play, be sure that California (and FamilyGetaway.com!) has just the vacation for you. (Read more)
