One-stop vacation shopping with Orbitz will give you direct access to California packages from $1,544, but the real beauty of a package vacation is that Orbitz does all the searching for you.
Gone are the days of hunting for a flight and hotel separately, comparing hundreds of flight sales and hotel deals, with the added pressure of keeping track of all those pesky reference numbers. Check out an all-inclusive resort hotel package, where the price will also cover your food, drink, and activities, or a simple flight and hotel package, and enjoy the luxury of having all your essential information in one place.
Whether you’re planning on visiting California in peak season () or you want to avoid the crowds and go during the quieter months (), you can customize your package to your own unique travel needs.

You can pack a whole lot into a few days in San Francisco but consider catching an early flight into San Francisco International Airport to really make the most of your time. Grab a taxi, ride-share or the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and head to your hotel.
Transportation: Most of San Francisco’s sights are within walking distance, but you can use the world-famous cable cars to avoid the steep uphill climbs. Beware—at peak hours, the cable cars can have long lines.
Where to stay: Pismo Beach has a great selection of hotels you can book as part of your California package deal, perfect for an overnight stay. Enjoy sea views and salty breezes at hotels like Shore Cliff Hotel and Sandcastle Hotel On the Beach.
Transportation: Rent a car in San Francisco as part of a package deal and drop it off in Los Angeles, your next stop.
Today you may want to skip breakfast and wait for brunch at your first stop, Santa Barbara, which is just 90 minutes’ drive south of Pismo.
Where to stay: You’ll be booking a place in your next destination: LA (just a 30-minute drive from Malibu). Choose a place to stay like the InterContinental Downtown Los Angeles and you’ll have access to a rooftop pool, or choose a budget-friendly option such as the spacious Ellison Suites with its Venice Beach views.
In the evening, you can fly home from Los Angeles or stay another night to extend your epic California vacation.
