Drive to the Most Popular Destinations in California with Your Alamo Rental Car

Sand, Sea and Surf on California Beaches

California is a playground of paradise beaches, with no less than 420 spread along its 1,100 miles of coast. The Pacific shore is gifted with clean, swelling waves, making it a haven for surfers since the 1960s. To take part, cruise your California rental car along the highway to Santa Barbara, a beautiful coastal city sometimes referred to as The American Riviera. It's located about 90 miles north of Los Angeles in Southern California. There are Alamo Rent A Car pickup points at key locations from Long Beach to San Diego, meaning you'll only be a short drive from salty air and golden dunes wherever your adventure begins.

Iconic Cities: San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco

If you prefer to get your kicks in the city, California will be right up your street. Home to both Disneyland and the glittering lights of Hollywood, Los Angeles is a mecca for those with a passion for the silver screen. Located deep in the California desert, Palm Springs has long been a popular playground for the rich and famous. If you prefer a more laid-back atmosphere, try San Diego – you'll find a relaxing beach-town atmosphere. For famous landmarks, San Francisco is a must – home to the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf and Alcatraz Island. Best of all, driving between these cities is a dream – Route 101 has earned its status as a bucket-list road trip. Book an Alamo Rent A Car convertible to make the most of the experience.

National Parks and Napa Valley

Of course, California is also a haven of natural beauty. As well as its famous Napa Valley wine region, this state is home to nine national parks, with the most famous being Yosemite. Located in the stunning Sierra Nevada Mountains of central eastern California, this protected area of nature is loved for its gargantuan granite cliffs, giant sequoia groves, glistening waterfalls and diverse animal and plant life. If you're planning on driving to Yosemite National Park for a family camping holiday, then you’re sure to find the right car in our fleet of excellent, family-friendly vehicles.
