Family Fun in California with Elegant Resorts

When you and your family touch down in California, a whole new world awaits. As you take your first steps through the airport door, you enter a sun-filled wonderland, where adults and children alike are invited into a world that feels a little too good to be real. In fact, playing make believe here is heartily encouraged, which is, perhaps, why California is home to some of the United States’ favourite theme parks. From the classically wholesome Disney Land, to the mega-attractions of Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles and its thrilling The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, living the movie magic is a must-do for all ages - though families with older children may wish to brace themselves for the adrenaline-pumping rollercoasters of Six Flags Magic Mountain or Knotts Berry Farm!

Something of a post modern parade, those seeking an old-time seaside charm will be pleasantly surprised, too, with retro boardwalks and waterfronts of Santa Monica and Santa Cruz, lined with whimsical carousals, vintage rollercoasters and carnival stalls, offering a fantastic throwback to a heartfelt bygone era that lives on in happy-go-lucky California. There is plenty of educational value on offer, too, and young minds will be filled with curiosity by the stunning marine life at Monterey Bay Aquarium and endangered animals from across the world at San Diego Zoo, and intrigued by the secrets of gold prospectors and charlatans from the past at old gold rush towns, such as Sacramento, California’s capital city.

County fairs and folk festivals make for relaxing days spent sprawled out on picnic blankets, where you can get a feel for the laid-back, Bohemian vibe, and visits to farmers’ markets can lead to afternoons of filling wicker baskets with freshly picked strawberries and apples, even more delicious for being grown under year-round, natural sunshine. In fact, eating here is treat upon treat, and even the pickiest children are guaranteed to be kept happy (perhaps a little too happy!) with a myriad of dining table offerings, from fresh fruit smoothies to tasty tacos and fifties-themed diners. And, of course, there are always the beaches; whether you are travelling with teenagers aching for a piece of SoCal surf cool, or fancy an idyllic spot to dig your toes in to watch the sunset from, California has you covered with the finest selection in the United States.
