    Weekend trips in Southern California

    Hello! I live in Los Angeles, CA and am interesting in taking short trips out of the city to see more of the Southwest. What are towns or attractions in the area that you like to visit? Ideally places I could drive to in 4-6 hours.

    Re: Weekend trips in Southern California

    I usually think of the Southwest as being New Mexico, Arizona, and so on but from the title of your post it sounds like you specifically mean CA so hopefully these recommendations are what you're looking for

    Santa Barbara and San Diego are the first spots I'd recommend. Both gorgeous, friendly, full of things to see and do, and practically next door so doable either as a daytrip or for a nice overnight adventure.

    Santa Cruz has it's own laidback charm, then there's San Luis Obispo and Pismo Beach. And I feel like Paso Robles gets neglected, maybe because of the unbearable summer heat, but it has nice wine country. IMHO Palm Springs is wildly overrated, but YMMV and it does have a nice mid-century charm in spots.

    And a lot depends on what you're looking for, I guess. Even just restricted to the Southern half of the state there's a huge diversity of things to do and see. So if you're a foodie, or just wanna lounge on the beach, or more into museums and historic sites then you might want to try narrowing your focus. For example I think Solvang is a hoot, but my sister would kill me if I drove her up there for fun. OTOH she took me to Palm Springs and I was bored out of my skull while she was happy as a clam just sitting by the pool for two

    I agree with you Vaughan California is a place where you can do lots of exciting things to do. Disneyland is one of those places which grabs the attention of tourists to have day trips there. This amusement park is widely famous among travelers.

    South california offers plenty of mesmerizing destinations that makes it one of my favourite one destination. I had great time there during my hearst castle from san francisco with my friends. During that tour we could not just explore California's famous destinations but guide helped us a lot to know more about them. I would say Yosemite water falls and Bridalveil fall were just amazing.

    I have been visited the Yosemite National Park about two times during my us tours. It is one of the oldest and most visited parks of this country. We can enjoy a wide range of natural spots, beautiful waterfalls, lakes and trails in this park.

    Mexico is a country in the USA which is famous for its landscapes, mountains, beaches, deserts and forests. I have visited Mexico about a year ago and visited many attractions of it, but Historic Center of Mexico City is my favorite attraction there. It is a true representation of art and history of Mexico and offers a lot of enjoyable activities. I will like to suggest this destination to other tourists and hope they will spend there nice time.
