Travel tips to keep in mind when you travel to California: Anaheim, Lake Tahoe, Long Beach, San Diego

By on September 1, 2017

California is the place to be for a dream travel. You can travel there all year round as it has a diverse weather. The best time depends on when you want to visit, during summer or winter as each climate brings to fore a different  but exciting version of California.

Here are some travel tips to some of the best destinations in California:

Anaheim: June to August is the peak time and if you are visiting this time, then prior bookings are a must. From March to May, temperature can soar but you can visit the Disneyland at a leisure pace with hardly any crowd. The best airport is the John Wayne Airport. Book a hotel near the Disneyland and you will be able to visit some best destinations.  Tipping is at 15 to 20 percent in some restaurants and casual dressing is best.


 Lake Tahoe: The summer temperature at Lake Tahoe is moderate while it can get cold during winter. So, it will be best if you first check the weather conditions before visiting.  Summers are the peak season while Fourth of July is the time to witness some celebrations. If you wish to attend the famous Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival, then the summer is the best time. Winters may bring in storm but it is also the time to indulge in some skiing and other snow activities. It is best to travel during weekdays as weekends get very crowded. Always carry a map, water and snacks while sightseeing.

Long Beach: English and Spanish are spoken at Long Beach and the number to dial for emergencies is 911. Indulge in water crafts at Long Beach. The tipping rate is 20%. The Annual Toyota Grand Prix is held every April, so this time it can get very busy. There are downtown guides to help you in case. Wear a red jacket to help them spot you. Look for free shuttle buses as well.

San Diego: It rains occasionally and some days can be windy. Check the weather before you hop on to your car for a trip around San Diego. Book a central hotel from where you can travel conveniently to different places. The trolley service is more convenient. If you want a good deal at shops, bargain well. One of the most famous destinations in San Diego is the Safari Park but you will need to book tickets in advance.
