L.A. holds some of the most well-known tourist draws on the planet: the Walk of Fame, the Hollywood sign, Beverly Hills, and the glamorous shopping district on Rodeo Drive. Beyond the tourist to-do-list spots, the golden beaches of San Diego, the desert beauty of Palm Springs, and the bustling streets of Orange County, lie flower-carpeted hillsides and tangerine sunsets that’ll melt your heart. Head to Northern California for an experience that’ll take you to another state of mind without leaving the state.
There are 360-points of interest everywhere you turn. From sophisticated San Francisco to casually elegant Sonoma to the sparkling beauty of Lake Tahoe—truly, no other place is more culturally diverse, more naturally alluring, or more interesting than the northern half of the Golden State. San Francisco’s iconic cable cars, a sparkling bay, and that iconic Golden Gate bridge put it among the world’s great cities. And just an hour’s drive north, Napa Valley reigns as the land of
grand estates, expansive tasting rooms, and quaint towns. More than 400 wineries make this a wine-lover’s paradise. With so much interest packed into a single west coast state, California is an infinitely exciting destination for MICE groups. It also boasts high capacity accommodations, easy access through some of the biggest and most modern airports in the U.S., and an infrastructure ready to welcome even the largest incentive and convention groups.
