If you’ve dreamed of exploring the Golden State from behind the wheel, the new California Road Trips Guide is packed with ideas to start planning your next adventure. Order your free 36-page guide here. (Seriously—it’s free. We’ll ship it right to your mailbox, no strings attached.)  

The guide features 12 diverse itineraries, including scenic coastal drives, excursions to hidden gems, and food- and wine-focused tours.

For those traveling with kids, consider the “Family Learning Adventure,” which mixes fun with education, or the “Between the Theme Parks” trip, which suggests how to extend your trip beyond action-packed days at SeaWorld San Diego, LEGOLAND California, Disneyland Resort, and Universal Studios Hollywood.

Foodies who love traditional Mexican fare should check out the “Tantalizing Taco Tour” through Southern California, while wine lovers can choose between a whirlwind through Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino, or a journey through some undiscovered wine areas. Or, you know, both.

The publication also highlights treks that veer off the beaten path, including one that starts south of San Francisco along some of the most beautiful stretches of Highway 1, including eight recommended stops between Santa Cruz and Big Sur. Or read about eight secret beaches that are absolutely worth the extra effort to experience in person.

If it’s Instagram posts you’re after, follow the “Amazing Views” itinerary, which takes you past some of California’s most jaw-dropping vistas, snow-capped volcanoes, cascading waterfalls, and gigantic trees. Plus: Each of the 12 trips offer an Instagram-worthy stop along the way.

It’s never too late to plan an epic road trip for this summer or beyond. You can pick up the California Road Trips Guide at one of the state's 16 California Welcome Centers and at select newsstands, but since you’re here right now the best thing to do is click on this link and we’ll send it to you right away.
