California by car

You are in for a treat when you visit California. Whether your trip is for business or pleasure, the large state of California offers a world of travel opportunities. It has an excellent system of roads and scenery that encompasses the highest point of the United States, Mount Whitney, within the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the "painted desert" with iconic cowboy movie scenery, Lake Tahoe and the beautiful Redwood-Douglas fir forests of the northwest.

What to do in California

You could collect your hire car at LAX, explore Malibu, Venice Beach or Santa Barbara along the Pacific coast and then drive up to San Francisco where you can cross the Golden Gate Bridge, investigate the communities on the north coast and then make for Napa Valley and its famous vineyards and wineries.

California contains more forestland than any other state, bar Alaska. From San Francisco, you could plan a trip via Sacramento towards the Sierra Nevada where the deep freshwater Lake Tahoe and the Sequoia National Park lie in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Do not forget to take time to branch off towards Yosemite National Park, famous for its glacially carved domes.

Southern California

Heading south from LA, down towards the Mexican State of Baja California, San Diego is a two-hour drive away. In America summers can be hot and as you will appreciate the air-conditioning in the well-maintained car that you have hired from National. If, while you are down south, you decide to have a look at the Mojave Desert, you can take the I-15 passing through San Bernardino National Forest and the Mojave National Preserve.
