Once called "the bridge that couldn't be built," today, the Golden Gate Bridge is one the seven wonders of the modern world. Look around and you shall witness the crooked Victorian rooflines, wind-sculpted treetops and fog mystifing at the top of Golden Gate Bridge, ride a cable car, climb the streets, lose yourself at the various famous movie locations. Visit the Golden Gate Park, the vibrant Lombard Street, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown. If you appriciate music and art, lose yourself at the San Francisco Symphony at Davies Symphony Hall. 

Day 2. Take the 5 hours drive to the magical Yosemite Valley

Yosemite Valley is right out of a fantasy book. You can see bears, coyotes and golden eagles in their complete splendor at the Yosemite National Park. Hike, ride or take the free shuttle to explore  and see iconic attractions like Half Dome and El Capitan. Plan a hike to Tuolumne Meadows or head to the more remote, less-visited Hetch Hetchy region, where hikes go on the Wapama Falls Trail.

Day 3. Call it good, bad or ugly, Las Vegas is out-right surreal!

Centuries old vast sandstone canyons, sparkling waterfalls, wildlife such as mule deer, golden eagles, mountain lions and ethereal landscapes make this a hiker and photographer’s shangri-la. Pull up your socks and trot along the canyon floor or heed the challenge up to Angel’s Landing. The view is extraordinary.

Seeing pictures is nothing like being there. Nothing will prepare you for the overwhelming and humbling rush of emotions that washes over when you are standing on the precipice of something so immense. With a day at the Grand Canyon you can see tons of years of rock history from every angle including a 360 panorama if you take the chopper. Enjoy the views from the Rim Trail or descend into the canyon on the Bright Angel Trail. 

Day 6. The city of dreams and angels, Los Angeles

Los Angeles is not just about beaches, face-lifts, film noir and shopping starlets. It is also about undemanding and exhilerating moments, a cracked-ice, jazz-age cocktail on Beverly Blvd, a hike high into the Hollywood Hills, a swirling pod of dolphins off the Point Dume, the scrumptious food and much more. In short, it teaches you to TRULY live life.
