    California is too beautiful to be considered only for its beaches. I'm Italian and I did a wonderful road trip through the US last summer. The best things I visited in Califiornia were: San Francisco (of course), which is a lovely city with lots of things to do, perfect to have fun. Then also Santa Maria and Santa Barbara are lovely. Ialso enjoyed so bad natural highlights such as Death Valley, Pismo Beach and Big Sur. So,California offers super diffrent things. So if you wanna be a cuty person, I suggest you to stay in San Francisco. Whilr if you're looking to a relaxing seaside holiday, find an accomodation along the coast, such as Malibù. Anyway, I don't really know which kind of tourist you wanna be, but Ican tell you that California is LOVELY and it's too often underrated when people only know it for L.A. (where I actually didn't go 'cause people told me it wasn't worth it). 

    Bye! CIAO CIAO !!!

    We have 840 miles of coastline that varies from rocky bluffs in the far north to heavy industrialization in near north to the mid south and then some sandy beaches mixed in. Some of this is very rural, aka the Lost Coast, much of it is highly urbanized. So first get some idea of where in the state you're going then more people could help you.

      It isn't as cool as it used to be but still worth the visit.

    There are so many beaches in California. I personally like the Baker Beach on the peninsula.

    California is a big state.  With over 450 miles of coastline there are lots of beaches but in May nobody will be swimming, the Pacific ocean is too cold that time of year.

    Where you go should be determined by your and your girl's interests. 

    What is important to you?

    Culture

    Nightlife

    Art

    Natural beauty

    History

    Amusement Parks

    Outdoor sports

    Professional sports

    Other things to consider

    Your budget

    Do you plan to rent a car or use public transportation

    Weather

    Go to your local library get a California guidebook, look thru it together to find out what you want to spend your time doing.

    Stay away from Disneyland, it's $209 just to walk in, and you will stand in line for two hours for each ride, maybe three for the new Star Wars area.

    Do you know long long California is. It’s about half the length of the United States. Do you know how many beaches there are in California. Do you know how many cities are near the beach. 

    So why the hell are we suppose to recommend where you stay when we don’t know where in California you’re going.
