The state of California is a destination for everyone. Nature hikes in the Sierra Nevada mountains, wineries tours in the Napa Valley, family fun at Disney, and the glitz and energy of Los Angeles and San Francisco—you will find something to do in every part of the state. So whether you’re dreaming of a wine holiday, a relaxing beachy weekend, or a staycation close to the city, we’ve found unmissable hotel deals for spring and summer. These are all fully refundable, so you can book them now and if you decide not to travel, you will get your money back.
Also known as Butterfly Town USA, the coastal city of Pacific Grove attracts thousands of orange-and-black monarch butterflies in the winter months. Explore the gorgeous Monterey Bay coastline on bike or on foot, book a tee time at the beautiful golf course, spend sunny days on Asilomar State Beach, and look at the pages of its history with a tour of the stately Victorian homes.
