San Diego, Palm Springs and Orange County Beaches

7 Day California Tour from San Diego to Orange County

There's never been a more important time to discover America, and we're here to reconnect you to the joy of travel and give you a new appreciation for your own backyard.

Passionately created by Americans for Americans.


  • Learn about the iconic style of Palm Springs on a design and architecture tour of Palm Springs with Local Specialist, Kurt. A much-needed getaway for movie stars and socialites, the vibrant scene became a mecca for this unique look, and you’ll get to visit houses of design heroes and stars from the era.
  • Discover Joshua Tree National Park, a natural wonder that is the result of two desert ecosystems, the high Mojave and the low Colorado deserts, coming together. After meeting with a park ranger, you’ll enjoy some time on your own to walk the trails. 
  • Be inspired by the story of California’s first mission, Mission San Diego de Alcala. Built in 1769, the mission is home to a cultural center where visitors can relive the history and traditions of the last 250 years.
