Description

Completely updated every year (unlike most of the competition), Frommer's California features detailed
reviews and insider info on the state's spectacular beaches, national parks, vineyards, and more. Quite
simply, this is the most reliable and comprehensive California guide you can buy. Whether you're looking
for a romantic B&B in the Wine Country, the hippest new restaurant in San Francisco, or the best
beaches in L.A. and San Diego, Frommer's California will show you the way. The guide is personally
researched by longtime residents, and it's full of their candid opinions about the best their state has to
offer. They've selected the very best places to stay throughout the state: lavish golf resorts, spas,
stunning B&Bs, beachfront motels, and Yosemite's best campgrounds. With Frommer's in hand, you'll
see it all -- from the desert to the towering redwoods, from Hollywood to Hearst Castle, from Sea World to
Big Sur. You'll even get a color fold-out map!
