Three California Day Trips You Don’t Want to Miss

California Day Trips

Ah, spring time in California. It’s not too hot and the many roads and natural wonders in the state are just begging to be explored. Pack up your vehicle and get ready to head out on one of these amazing California day trips for a break from the normal.

Muir Woods

It’s always fun to take a trip to the culturally rich San Francisco, but have you ever traveled further north to visit Muir Woods? This protected National Monument is home to some of the most majestic coastal Redwoods on the planet – a breathtaking sight that everyone should see at some point.

Yosemite National Park

Further inland you will find this iconic park, which has been protected since before the end of the Civil War. It’s easy to spend more than a day in this beautiful natural landscape, so camping for a night or two might be tempting. Take the time to explore its many offerings like waterfalls, meadows, deep valleys, and stunning landscapes all around.

Joshua Tree National Park

Head further south (and east of Los Angeles) for a totally new, yet equally out-of-this-world scene at Joshua Tree National Park. The curious and gorgeous Joshua Trees are just some of the many interesting plants and animals to be seen in this southern California desert.
