Angel Island State Park

San Francisco - Bike Angle IslandThis state park is located on the biggest island on the bay - a short boat ride away from San Francisco. The whole island is set aside for recreational activities. 

To get to the island you will need to take a ferry or use a private boat. Ferries run multiple times a day but are limited during winter months. Check the schedules to make sure you don't miss the last boat.

You can start your visit by taking a tram tour of the island to familiarize yourself with the park. You can also take a Segway or a Diggler (a kind of scooter) tour. 

Santa Cruz, CA

nullThe city of Santa Cruz, California is known for its moderate climate, natural beauty, amazing coastline, and redwood forest.

This sleepy beach town is within a one-hour driving distance from San Francisco or San Jose. 

You can certainly make Santa Cruz a stop on your Bay area itinerary, but I think it deserves to be its own destination. There is so much to do and see – you can easily spend a week without getting bored. 

Catalina Island

nullCatalina Island is a short boat ride from Los Angeles or Orange counties, but very far off in ambiance and charm. You can very easily forget you are in California and let your imagination take you to a Mediterranean Island. 

About Us

Huntington Beach First, let me introduce myself: I am Bill from Anaheim, California - USA. 

I love to travel, and during my travels, I was always looking for a good source of information about the area I am visiting. I bought travel guides. I searched travel websites looking for information that only the locals would know, and I always came up empty-handed. 

Huntington Beach

nullBetter known as Surf City, it boasts the longest uninterrupted stretch of beach on the West Coast. The city has a lot of attractions, parks, theaters, malls and restaurants – but let’s faces it: the main attraction will always be the beach.

There are several beaches to choose from, each one with its own personality. Some of them are managed by the city and others are part of the State Park system.
