Sunset State of Mind

With its sun-drenched beaches, scenic mountains, and vibrant cities, no destination offers a more memorable summer vacation than California. Golden State group tours can enjoy exciting sports and outdoor adventures, revel in top-notch arts and entertainment activities, and immerse themselves in classic coastal escapes with value added packages that really pack a punch.

 Whatever their dream vacation is, groups are sure to find the right fit in California.

Long known for its sun-kissed beeches, the Golden State is the perfect place for an idyllic seaside getaway. There are plenty of beautiful, beachfront locales to choose from and many properties are offering great deals and packages to woo groups.

Values abound along the Central Coast, an area that could very well be called California’s answer to the Mediterranean. Known for picturesque scenery, rich history and incredible examples of early twentieth century architecture, this area is also home to some of the state’s more amazing beaches and beachfront properties, many of which are rolling out terrific values. The Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove sits on a historic ocean front landscape along the shoreline of the Monterey Peninsula.
