The Best Vacation Spots in California for Families

Wazzup Pilipinas!

California is called the Golden State for a reason. This vast state boasts an incredibly versatile landscape. From towering redwood forests to sunny beaches to magnificent cities, you could visit California every year and still not see everything.

This versatility is what makes California such a great destination for families. Here are some of the best vacation spots in California to enjoy with your kids.


Malibu isn't just for adults; there are plenty of child-friendly activities that make it fun for the whole family. Malibu is home to some of the most beautiful vacation rentals in California, just minutes from the beach. Frolic in the waves together then head to one of the many parks or museums.

Stop in at the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe where you can dine with your toes in the sand. This famous beach has been in numerous movies and television shows and is one of the most iconic destinations in Malibu.

Redwood National and State Parks

Camping is a national pastime, and there's no better place to do it than in the Redwood National and State Park. The parks offer both developed camping as well as backcountry camping options to suit your comfort level. Additionally, there are hiking trails that could take a couple of hours or a couple of weeks; it's a choose your own adventure!

The Redwood trees are incredible to behold. There are trees as tall as 300 feet, with a diameter so large a car could drive through. It's expected that these trees are thousands of years old, a throwback to ancient times standing silent guard still today.

San Francisco

San Francisco has a vibrant nightlife, but it's also a great destination for families. With a lot of great short-term rental options, you can stay in the heart of the city, hop a trolley, and explore to your heart's content.

Take a trip to the California Academy of Sciences and explore the indoor rainforest that stretches four stories tall. Cruise around the bay or cross the iconic Golden Gate bridge. Take a spooky excursion to Alcatraz prison that will have the whole family sleeping in one room. Buy your attraction tickets early to get the best deal and your choice of dates and times.

Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park is located in the scenic Sierra Nevada in mid-state California. The park covers nearly 1170 square miles and houses more incredible redwood trees, hiking trails, waterfalls, river rafting, mountains, and glaciers.

Your whole family will love the Mist Trail, which takes you to the unbelievable Nevada Falls. Take an educational turn by stopping in at the Pioneer Village to tour some historic homes and walk across a covered bridge. Cap off the adventure by panning for gold and walking through the open meadows like the prospectors of old.

Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree is one of the world's most unique and astonishing landscapes that everyone should strive to visit at least once. This southeastern destination is a stark desert landscape scattered with unique trees that are recognizable worldwide.

It's important to note that there are no accommodations or restaurants within the boundaries of the park, but there are plenty of places to stay nearby.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles is one of those cities that has managed to gain worldwide recognition and fame, comparable to New York City in the east. The challenge with heading to LA is deciding what not to do. You could spend your entire life in the city without ever seeing it all.

Take the kids to Hollywood and see the celebrity handprints in front of the Chinese Theater. Stroll along the Walk of Fame and get photos taken in front of the Hollywood sign. Hollywood isn't everything though-- stop by Universal Studios, the Kidspace Children's Museum, and the Angel's Flight Railway.

No matter where you go in California, there's something to do for the whole family. Plan your trip wisely, so you get to see as much as possible; your first trip won't be your last.
