California Dreamin': Northern California By Design


tour: F8B 9 days from San Francisco to San Francisco
Head west for a 9-day adventure with the pioneer spirit of Northern California. How will you strike gold in the Golden State? Riding the rails in Sacramento or gliding by kayak on an ancient lake? Trekking the trails in Yosemite or treading lightly on the streets of a ghost town? Soaring to mammoth views or singing the Folsom blues? With complimentary YourChoice Excursions, you choose to climb to new heights or dig deeper to find your California dream. What a rush!

The Western United States' national parks have some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet, and provide experiences and memories that last a lifetime. Where else can you see wild animals roam free among natural wonders and stunning canyons? It's my great honor to introduce travelers to these beautiful places as I tell the little-known facts and stories that bring each destination to life.
