160 Kms from Whittier
A quick dash to Tijuana on the Mexican border, San Diego is a nice city with nice weather and perhaps some of the nicest people in California. I’ve made several trips here and I always felt relaxed in the city. It doesn’t have that hustle and bustle that other U.S. cities have. Or at least I’ve never sensed it. Come enjoy its beaches, its restaurants and its chilled nightlife. One of the few places in the United States you can actually swim in the Pacific Ocean and not feel you will freeze to death.
Sequoia National Park
283 Kms from Whittier
This is a must see. The Sequoia National Park in Northern California is famous for its giant sequoia trees, including the General Sherman tree, one of the largest trees on Earth. Among the awaiting wonders are the world’s largest trees, the giant sequoia, which grow up to 85m, and the highest mountain outside Alaska, 4421m Mt Whitney.
