May 9, 2013 - Holidays in Southern California

Southern California offers charter bus visitors a wide variety of seasonal climates and weather. Michael E. Ritter, instructor at the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, says the region attracts vacationers because of its dry summer subtropical climate that creates “...comfortable conditions throughout most of the year” Charter bus visitors to Southern California can comfortably move from the coast to inland activities should weather patterns bring rain or fog. The entire area is rarely impacted by negative weather conditions, more so when you’re traveling in a bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Bus Charters Los Angeles.

For a charter bus adventure you’ll not soon forget, the San Diego Natural History Museum hosts whale-watching programs that incorporate education and ocean exploration. The tours run from June through September for viewing whales, dolphins, sea lions and birds. Several day trips may be required to spot a whale. Blue Whale tours operate Thursday through Sunday. Gray Whale tours operate during their migration from December through April. The more than three-hour tour for this season operates twice daily.

Local architects Henry and Charles Greene left an architectural Arts and Crafts-style legacy in Southern California. The Gamble House, built in 1908 for David and Mary Gamble, is opento charter bus visitors throughout the year. The design features furniture designed specifically for the house that incorporates rare woods, as well as art glass and crafted metal. Regular guided tours and special events include education programs exploring the home’s design elements. Reservations are not required for the general tours but are highly recommended for charter bus visitors, especially during the summer season.

The Pacific Coast Highway, also known as the PCH, takes charter bus visitors through beach cities and industrial parks and also provides a clear view of the ocean for a number of miles. Start your vacation in Malibu and head south to San Diego to appreciate the southern part of the highway. Stay the night in Santa Monica and again at the historic beach cottage district at Crystal Cove State Park in Laguna Beach. Book accommodations at the end of the tour in San Diego for a night in a cottage located directly over the ocean at the Crystal Pier Hotel. The PCH features a variety of stores, art galleries, cafes and restaurants. Each beach community along the route offers a unique public beach, and many towns have walking piers and boardwalks.

Charter bus visitors vacationing in Southern California on the third Sunday of the month should plan a trip to the Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market at the Veterans Stadium. With more than 800 permanent dealers and more than 20 acres of space, it can take a full day to examine each booth in detail. Furniture, sports memorabilia, pottery, toys and vintage clothing are featured, but spaces are also rented by folks just cleaning out closets and garages. Snack-type food is available on the grounds, and downtown Long Beach offers a host of upscale restaurants and cafes just minutes from the stadium. Fill out the vacation time by exploring the dozens of antiques stores and collectible shops along the Pacific Coast Highway north from Long Beach to Santa Monica.

A charter bus holiday in Southern California is just what the doctor ordered, and Bus Charters Los Angeles can help you organize a fun filled charter bus vacation with their friendly service and fleet of charter buses.
