From world-famous restaurants to world-famous museums to world-famous movie locations, if there’s one way to describe Los Angeles, it’s “world-famous.” The sheer volume of globally iconic destinations makes this city a must whether you’re a film lover, an art lover, a surfer, or a foodie, L.A. has it all, and BusBank is the preeminent full-service charter bus company serving the Los Angeles area.

San Diego

San Diego’s iconic architecture spans over two and a half centuries following some of the most recognizable architectural movements, from old Spanish forts, to Spanish Colonial Revival in Balboa Park, to the brutalist Salk Institute. San Diego is another art lover’s paradise boasting several renowned museums including the San Diego Museum of Art, the San Diego Art Institute, the Museum of Photogenic Arts, the Mingei International Museum, and the Timken Museum. Sunny San Diego also boasts awesome weather, even during the winter months

San Francisco

Whether you’re a history buff, a lover of scenic views, or a fan of fine dining, San Francisco has you covered. One of the great things about San Francisco is that you can take in all of the major sites, like Alcatraz, Chinatown, Union Square, and the Golden Gate Bridge, in a matter of days and yet still find new surprises no matter how long you stay. Named the “Best Food City in the Country,” San Francisco will delight even the most discerning palate. With Sharp topography, sweeping views, diverse neighborhoods, and a seemingly endless number of fairs and festivals, San Francisco is inexhaustibly entertaining.

Natural Splendor

California doesn’t just have more National Parks than any other state, it’s home to many of the most iconic and most visited National Parks in the country. Each one of these parks offers its own unique appeal to visitors, from towering redwoods and sequoias, to the dunes of Death Valley, to the dynamic coastal features of Channel Islands National Park. California National Parks offer boundless natural splendor and many of them can be quickly accessed with a short trip from California’s major cities.

Amusement Parks

California is home to Disneyland and Universal Studios, making it a great destination for a family vacation or a fun work retreat. Disneyland is located in Anaheim, CA and houses all sorts of rides, shows, restaurants and hotels. Universal Studios is located near Hollywood in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles where you can find rides and attractions based on popular movie franchises like Jurassic Park and Harry Potter. BusBank offers shuttle transportation to and from Disneyland or Universal Studios as well as bus tours of the area that include a stop at the Disneyland resort.

Fun Facts

  • California was once its own country… but only for a month. Before becoming the 31st state in 1850, California was an independent country for a single month in 1846. 
  • California experiences over 100,000 earthquakes a year. The good news? Most of them are too subtle for the average person to notice. 
  • The official state fruit of California is the avocado. San Diego County’s Fallbrook, known as the “Avocado Capital of the World,” even hosts an annual avocado festival.
  • Death Valley is the hottest, and the driest, and the lowest National Park. However, despite its name and these extreme conditions, the park is host to a huge variety of wildlife.
  • California is the birthplace of the internet. The first message sent across the internet read “Lo.” UCLA student Charley Kline meant to send the word “login,” but the system crashed – some things never change!
