Where to stay in California

California with the family

Children will love to explore the exciting theme parks to be found in southern California, such as Disneyland or San Diego’s Sea Life, whilst older teens might prefer to enjoy adventure sports in the Ranging River Park, followed by a bit of shopping and celebrity-spotting at iconic Rodeo Drive.

There is so much to see and do in California that you’ll never want to leave.
