Californian Greg Critser begins this National Geographic guide in Los Angeles, with the beach communities of Venice and Santa Monica, and moves on to the Getty Center and the venues of the stars. Southward, you visit the Orange County beaches and a string of affluent seaside towns, including glitzy Laguna Beach and artsy La Jolla.

Discover the best of San Francisco, essentially a city of neighborhoods, each one offering something special—Chinatown, North Beach, the revitalized South of Market area. Critser then explains how to get the most out of your visit to Napa Valley, as well as the neighboring Sonoma and Alexander Valleys, just as famous for their wines.
