10 California Road Trip Surprises

ACE Hotel Pool- Iconic Palm Springs

Well, hello there! Bob, Spencer and I, along with Expedia, have been traveling around Southern California for the last few days and I wanted to give you a sneak peek at some of our adventures. We’ve traveled through well-known areas and then way lesser known areas… I’m talking, the beaten track was nowhere to be found! And, because so, we stumbled upon some amazing discoveries and really unique, one of a kind to California spots that really surprised us. I can’t wait to share more! Until then, a few photos from our California road trip to get you all riled up!

TRAVEL TIP: Whether heading North, South, or East, getting outside of SoCal’s big cities can open your eyes to a totally unique landscape.  Figure out what sights you want to see most, before booking your air travel.  With several SoCal airports (LAX, John Wayne, Bob Hope, Ontario), booking your LA Flights to the airport most central to your SoCal to-do-list can save you travel/traffic and give you more time at each destination.
