Arriving at the destination

California is the USA's third-largest state, following Alaska and Texas. You can find cheap flights to California that land at one of the 10 international airports in the state. And due to those airports accommodating over 100 million people annually, you should expect top-notch services.

Many major and low-cost airlines connect the cities within the state of California. The primary hubs are the Los Angeles International Airport and San Francisco International Airport. Safety and security are top priorities due to the heavy traffic of travelers.

Getting Around

You'll have several public transportation options after your flight to California lands. Buses are one of your best options, particularly in the state's largest cities such as Los Angeles, Anaheim, and San Francisco. Subways are ideal if you want to zip around a particular city and avoid the traffic.

Amtrak trains are an excellent option if you're interested in touring multiple cities within the state. These services are also cheap and reasonably comfortable. And if you want alternative to buses and trains, then you could rent a car in California. The process is quite easy, and is the best option if you want more control over your traveling schedule.

Main Attractions

Before you book your flight to California, decide which attractions you’d most like to visit. The Golden Gate Bridge is a spectacular structure that links the city of San Francisco to beautiful Marin County. In Southern California, the San Diego Zoo contains thousands of animals and exotic plants.

Lake Tahoe allows you to enjoy a wide array of outdoor recreational activities. The Petrified Forest includes the amazingly tall and old Redwood trees. You should also include Hollywood on your itinerary, where you can see where the movie magic happens. Disneyland, in Anaheim, is a great option for people traveling with kids.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

After finding affordable airfare to California, you'll have some extra money for shopping. California includes some of the largest shopping malls in the USA, including South Coast Plaza, which is the third biggest.

Because California is so multi-cultural, you can find food from virtually every corner of the world, as well as upscale, gourmet dining.

In large California metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles, the nightlife is outstanding. From cafes to discos, there's something for every night owl who visits the Golden State.
