Los Angeles — 3 nights

City of Angels

Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Wine Tours & Tastings and The Broad. Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and Hollywood Bowl Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with a short trip to The Getty Villa in Malibu (about 32 minutes away). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens, get to know the fascinating history of Hollywood Walk of Fame, kick back and relax at Santa Monica State Beach, and explore the world behind art at Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

City by the Bay

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.

There's still lots to do: snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, examine the collection at Walt Disney Family Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Grace Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at Asian Art Museum.
