Los Angeles

Seeing as you'll be landing in Tinsel Town now is as good a time as any to explore the bright lights of LA!

San Jose

Next, don't just head straight to San Fran why not make a stop off during the drive northwards and plonk yourself in San Jose via it's notoriously scenic route. Set in the heart of Silicone Valley, San Jose is steeped in history and culture and offers a number of educational walking tours, or if that's not your bag, then there are plenty of vineyards to see as well!
