Our much-loved California holiday has been the favourite of Titan clients for many years. For 2016 we have improved it further, with a newly-refreshed itinerary. The attraction of the ‘Golden State’ was neatly encapsulated in The Mamas and the Papas’ 1965 hit California Dreamin’ and we invite you to experience the enticing temperatures and warm welcome for yourself. From gold rush pioneers to film industry starlets, the optimistic, the adventurous and the ambitious have made their way to California in search of fame and fortune for two centuries - the epitome of the American Dream. We include great cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco, iconic stretches of Pacific coastal road and Route 66, and the bewitching expanse of Yosemite National Park, along with the highlights of neighbouring states - the Wild West landscapes of Arizona and the extraordinary Las Vegas, America’s playground. The awe-inspiring Grand Canyon is a certain highlight; so there is plenty of time to experience this wonder of nature from your two-night base at a top Flagstaff hotel. The perfect conclusion to your holiday is a night’s stay, in seaview rooms, at the lovely Orange County resort of Huntington Beach - and you can choose to extend your holiday here too, to fully enjoy this coastal oasis.
