The United States is a continent in itself. Its enormous extension makes it a very attractive destination for all travelers looking for spectacular landscapes, unique experiences and, above all, lots of fun. All these attractions (and many more) are brought together by the West Coast of the United States. The coastline bathed by the Pacific Ocean never disappoints tourists who come annually to this area of North America.
The beaches of Los Angeles, the landscapes of the Grand Canyon, the nightlife of Las Vegas, the multiculturalism of San Francisco… It’s hard to stay with just one, but why choose when you can enjoy it all? If you are thinking of taking a trip to the West Coast of the United States, at Civitatis we want to help you in your planning. We present the best activities, guided tours and excursions in Spanish in this area of the United States. Ready?
Los Angeles, the glamour of the Seventh Art
Lights, camera and… Los Angeles! This Californian city is a good starting point to start the route along the West Coast of the United States. The Mecca of cinema, with the famous Hollywood district at its head, is perfect for getting to know all the attractions offered by the western coastline. And where to start? The Los Angeles tour will allow you to know the most emblematic areas of the city. These include the famous Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive, immortalized in dozens of movies.
If you want to enter literally in the world of your favorite movies, reserving the entrance to the Universal Studios Hollywood Park you will have fun in attractions based on The Simpsons, The Minions or Harry Potter. You can’t miss the tour of California’s best beaches, an essential route that will take you to Santa Monica or Venice Beach.
San Francisco: the Golden Gate and Alcatraz as symbols
Another must-see corner of the U.S. West Coast is San Francisco. The city, which stands out for its multiculturalism and diversity, surprises every traveler who visits for the first time. With the complete tour of San Francisco plus Alcatraz you will visit its most symbolic places, such as the Fisherman’s Wharf pier, the always crowded Union Square or the famous neighborhood of Nob Hill. In addition, with this tour you will take the ferry that will take you to the island of Alcatraz, which housed one of the most feared prisons of all time.
If you have several days in San Francisco, we also recommend the trip to Silicon Valley to know the technological axis of the United States: Apple, Facebook and Android, among others, have their headquarters there. Another great alternative is this bridge to bridge cruise through San Francisco, ideal for taking a closer look at the Golden Gate.
Las Vegas, casinos next to the Grand Canyon
They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. The city of gambling par excellence allows you to perform activities as crazy and extravagant as an Elvis wedding. With this walk along the hidden face of Las Vegas you will discover however that it is not gold all that glitters in the megalopolis of the casinos. Nearby, in the desert of Nevada and Arizona, extends one of the natural wonders of the West Coast. If you still don’t know which one it is, this excursion to the Grand Canyon in Spanish will clear up all your doubts.
The lovers of strong emotions, can enjoy a perfect activity to download adrenaline: aerial combat in acrobatic aircraft. Ready for this battle over the skies?
San Diego, a stone’s throw from Mexico
San Diego is located in the extreme south of California, very close to the border with Mexico. This U.S.-Mexican character is very evident in the guided tour of San Diego. If you prefer instead to immortalize its coasts, we propose you this tour by the beaches of San Diego. You will be able to see the nice colonies of sea lions!
Those who prefer to visit the other side of the border can book the Baja California excursion or the Tijuana excursion. Nice Mexico just a few minutes from San Diego!
Monterrey, city of penguins and sharks
Penguins in California? No, we’ve gone crazy. There is a city on the West Coast of the United States where it is possible to see them. This is Monterrey, famous for its large aquatic center in which it is possible to contemplate dozens of marine species. By booking your ticket to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, you will not only see penguins. You’ll also have the opportunity to walk through a tunnel in which Pacific sharks will literally swim over your heads – an experience for the most daring!
