The newest edition of California Road Trips, Visit California’s ultimate driving guide, released this spring just in time for the summer travel season, when travelers are hitting the road in search of only-in-California adventure.
The seminal guide highlights can’t-miss dream drives across the Golden State, taking readers from the lush Shasta Cascade to sunny Southern California and dozens of destinations in between. Each trip falls into one of three categories – day trips, weekend getaways, and grand tours – with each offering unique experiences to meet the needs of any traveler, whether traveling with family, friends or riding solo.
In the FY17/18 edition, two of California’s biggest stars outline their ideal California itineraries:
An acclaimed thrill-seeker in his own right, Olympic gold medal skier and California brand ambassador Jonny Moseley takes readers on a multiday excursion through the High Sierra, with stops at Yosemite, Mammoth Lakes, Pismo Beach and more. A lifelong Californian who honed his skills on the slopes of the Sierras, Moseley shares his favorite places to get out and enjoy the Golden State’s immense wealth of outdoor offerings.
For hungry drivers looking to fill up, celebrity chef and “Top Chef Masters” champion Chris Cosentino provides readers with tips and insider recommendations for dream eats (and drinks) from San Francisco to Sonoma. Swans Oyster Depot (San Francisco), Chateau Montelena (Calistoga) and Oxbow Public Market (Napa) make the list alongside a bevy of personal favorites and hidden finds.
This year’s California Road Trips was also tailored to account for the Highway 1 closure in Big Sur, a challenging result of the state’s historically wet winter. The guide includes an itinerary that takes readers down Highway 1 and provides an alternate route around the closure, featuring lesser-known destinations along the way.
All told, 1 million California Road Trips guides will be distributed in print, including 600,000 in Sunset Magazine. The electronic version of the guide has received over 125,000 page views.
