Situated on the west coast of the USA, California has got it all. Rugged mountains, sandy beaches, National Parks, exquisite views and loud, bustling cities; California is the ideal holiday location for travellers of all ages. Known as the Golden State, California borders Mexico and has a coastline approximately 900 miles long.

With San Diego, Santa Barbara and Santa Monica all located on the Pacific coast, you’ll be spoilt for choice if you want to soak up some rays on the beach while you’re in California. For something a little different, why not check out world famous Venice Beach? As well as a stunning view of the ocean, you’ll be able to take in the sights at Muscle Beach outdoor gym or wander around the independent shops and market stalls.

Hang out in Hollywood

For many people, a trip to Los Angeles is the highlight of their holiday in California. Whether you want to see the famous Hollywood sign, take a tour and spot celebrities or visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame, there’s always plenty to do.

Built for tourists, you’ll find the Dolby Theatre, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and the Hollywood Bowl all easily accessible. With world-famous artists often performing in LA, you may even want to grab tickets to a concert or gig while you’re in the area.

Don’t forget your ESTA visa

If you’re planning a trip to California, or anywhere in the USA, you’ll need to ensure that you have the relevant documents. For holidays and short trips, a US ESTA visa may be the easiest way for you to ensure access to the country.

Designed to make travelling to the USA as easy as possible, a US ESTA is available under the Visa Waiver Program. Providing your visit to the States doesn’t exceed 90 days, an ESTA application is the ideal way to begin the process of booking your trip.

Remember – you could be denied entry if you have failed to arrange a valid ESTA visa. Why risk ruining your holiday before you’ve even got started? For assistance with your ESTA form or to find out more about making an ESTA visa application, contact us today.
