Accommodation in California

With just a single step off your plane, you’ll realize what makes California so magical. As one of the largest and most populous states in the country, California offers an incredibly diverse landscape with an equally eclectic culture. And by booking a seat on one of our California flights, you can experience the many amazing attractions this one-of-a-kind region has to offer.

When to Visit

Northern California receives more extreme winter weather when compared with the southern part of the state, which stays relatively warm year-round— specially along the coast. California hotels farther inland tend to experience greater fluctuations in climate, as the state’s interior is home to a variety of different terrains including deserts, mountains, forests, and lakes. Summers are the ideal time to visit many attractions throughout the state, though skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts will probably prefer a trip in the winter months.

What to See and Do

There’s seemingly no end to the number of activities offered in this incredible part of the country. From San Diego’s gorgeous beaches to Napa Valley’s sprawling vineyards, and from the thrilling amusement parks in Hollywood to the breathtaking views offered in Redwood National Forest, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in the amazing state of California. Urban life here is nothing to sneeze at either, as California is home to some of North America’s most famous metropolises including the expansive city of Los Angeles, and the San Francisco-area’s celebrated Silicon Valley.

If you’re ready to embark on an adventure to one of America’s most popular states, count on Expedia.com.au to help you find the best deals on everything from California accommodation to flights. You can even score discounts on a California car hire. Book today and get ready to find out why they call the West Coast the best coast.
