Known as The Golden State, California offers its visitors a wealth of adventure and discovery, whether you’re after an active family holiday or a more relaxing getaway with your nearest and dearest.

This is a destination with no shortage of iconic sights – from the Golden Gate Bridge to the atmospheric Alcatraz Island. Then there’s San Francisco’s vibrant cultural scene, the vineyards and Michelin-starred restaurants of the Napa Valley region, and the famous Yosemite Park and Lake Tahoe for outdoor enthusiasts. Of course, California is also synonymous with glamour, and is home to the studios and parks of Los Angeles and the laid-back luxury of Santa Monica.

Carmel Valley Ranch is a superb choice for families with lots of different interests. The all-suite resort’s facility list is impressive; nine tennis courts, two outdoor swimming pools, hiking trails, a four-acre vineyard, a bee apiary, a spa, a golf course and world class Kids’ Camps are just some of the features here.

For a change of pace, and the perfect way to end an adventure-packed sojourn, Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa enjoys a picture-perfect beachside location and luxurious amenities for all the family to enjoy. Dining is perfect for families with even the pickiest of eaters – think burgers, tacos, pizza and a range of contemporary American classics.
