Day Trip Ideas in California


The weather is warming up and summer is upon us. Lucky for many of us, we don't have to travel far in order to find adventure here in sunny California. If you are looking for some fun day or weekend long trips, here is a list of some places that you may want to consider exploring!


Catalina Island - A day trip to Catalina Island is a fantastic way to clear your head and experience island life a short one hour boat ride from Long Beach. This post gives you a bunch of examples of what to do while there.


Big Sur - The coastline of Big Sur is one of the most beautiful places in all of California. This guide will help you see all of the waterfalls, hikes, and attractions it has to offer.


Death Valley - While less barren then Mojave National Preserve, Death Valley National Park is full of wonders strewn through its diverse landscape of unique features.


Mojave National Preserve - With over 1.5 million acres, the preserve is home to dunes, caves, hikes and history that provides for so many adventures you will keep coming back.


Salton Sea - This barren desert and man-made lake cater more to the offbeat adventurers, but if you give it a chance you should see its beauty as well.


Point Reyes National Seashore - Only an hour’s drive from San Francisco, Point Reyes is a magical wonderland of adventures, right along the coast.


South Lake Tahoe - Whether it is eating, paddleboarding or hiking, a trip to South Lake Tahoe can be a great long day adventure.


Alabama Hills - It’s hard to beat a day spent frolicking in the Alabama Hills. There are so many arches, rock formations and movie locations to explore.


Yosemite - Yosemite is the gem of the National Parks system and it is located right in the heart of California. Spend the day soaking in waterfalls and marveling at Half Dome.


Solvang - Yosemite is the gem of the National Parks system and it is located right in the heart of California. Spend the day soaking in waterfalls and marveling at Half Dome.


Hey Inland Empire, I’m Candice Newman! I’ve had the incredible fortune of being born and raised in this amazing community, and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. I currently live in Alta Loma with my husband, Jonathan, our son, Trevor, and our dog, Ruger! I’m a real estate agent with a passion for finding new places to explore in the Foothill Communities. When I'm not selling homes, you can find me cheering my son on at his baseball games, exercising, spending time in our local mountains, heading to the lake, cooking, or watching the Dodgers slay the Giants (I was born and raised an Angels fan, but the Dodgers have taken over the household!). I'll never have enough Mexican food and Italian food in my life. I’m looking forward to connecting with you soon! See you around town! Candice.Newman.Realty@gmail.com | (909) 367-3280 DRE: 01924842
