13 152 miles by plane, 1663 miles by car, and 15 nights in California. It was unforgettable trip.
In June 2011, I went to California with my family. It was my second trip to the USA, but I was still really excited because America is like another world. First we flew from Helsinki to New York and then immediately to Los Angeles. We stayed in LA for three nights and we saw Hollywood Boulevard, The Hollywood Sign and Beverly Hills. Then we rented a car and continued our journey to Las Vegas. I have to admit that I didn’t like to travel by car, but after all, I’m glad we did so. I recommend to renting a car because the US is built for cars and the traffic is smooth. We saw a lot more than those who flew for example.
We were in Las Vegas for three nigths and it was enough. It is all about the Strip at night time, which was a magnificent sight. Then we continued to San Francisco and stayed there for three nights. San Francisco suprised me and I really liked it. Even tought the weather was what it usually is, people were polite and the city was clean. And what must not be forgotten is the beautiful red bridge called Golden Gate Bridge,wich is one of the bridges which is leading into the city.
We drove back to LA and we were there for the rest of our time in CA. We went to the beach, shopping, a baseball game and visited Universal Studios. Then it was time to go home. I think that these three cities are worth seeing. They are so different and full of attractions!
