California totally took my breath away, it was amazing beyond all my expectations! LA was just brilliant and totally lived up to what I had dreamed of and more! It had a great mix of Disney, shopping on Rodeo Drive and superb restaurants. Not forgetting the stunning beaches, you could actually spend a week here and still find things to do (if you can just get around the traffic!!). Palm Springs and San Diego were so much more than I had thought they were going to be! Palm Springs was much bigger and felt so safe and friendly. I loved wandering around the streets, shopping and the buzz of the relaxed nightlife. San Diego was a dream, we stayed on Coronado Island, and this was a great location to get that resort beach feel but still be 15 minutes from the downtown area. Close by is Gaslamp Quarter famed for its fabulous nightlife and top notch restaurants. San Diego was certainly somewhere I would love to return back to and stay much longer! On our final day we had a helicopter tour around San Diego and this has to be one of the best experiences ever!"
