Explore the Beauty of America's West Coast

Think of America’s west coast, and California will most certainly spring to mind. Synonymous with palm fringed beaches, rugged coastal roads, awe-inspiring parks and famous cities, California is a much-loved state for good reason. LA, Santa Monica, San Francisco…the cities here are full of brilliant activities and attractions for beach lovers and adventurers alike, from hiking to the Hollywood sign and relaxing on Santa Monica Pier, to cycling along the Golden Gate Bridge and hopping on a cable car.

Venture further though, and you’ll find that the west coast is also home to some of the USA’s most impressive National Parks. Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park – the world’s first – is brimming with fascinating hot springs, forests and lakes, whilst Nevada’s Yosemite National Park is famed for its sequoia trees and granite cliffs. Amazing wildlife, including giant bears and elegant deer, make these beautiful landscapes their home, whilst adventurous travellers spend their time trekking and exploring.

If you’re looking to explore beyond the fabulous beaches, Nevada’s barren Mojave Desert is truly stunning, enticing those who wish to escape from the bustling cities and enjoy solitude and tranquility. You could have the best of both worlds in this state though, with the bright lights and lively casinos of Las Vegas just nearby.

The Grand Canyon is also a must-see when discovering America’s west. Venture to this phenomenal natural attraction and explore its beauty via a scenic helicopter ride, dare to walk along the skywalk, or simply take a classic photo near the canyon’s edge. This is the ideal state for gaining a more authentic taste of America thanks to its incredible Wild West scenery and epic ranching holidays.

Known as one of the greenest states in the USA, Oregon is perfect for a once-in-a-lifetime west coast escape too. Whether you fancy hiking the Cascade Mountains, fishing by peaceful streams, mountain biking or kayaking along mirror-effect lakes, Oregon boasts one of the best outdoor lifestyles in America. Neighbouring Washington State is just as beautiful with North Cascades and Mount Rainier National Park, whilst its largest city Seattle is home to amazing museums, art galleries, and a colourful waterfront.
