California Coastal City Travel Agent Advisor

There are 1,040 miles to explore from the tip of Northern California coast to the most Southern coastal point! I've traveled extensive throughout California, but my favorite is the coastal cities and destinations on the beach!

The beauty begins in Northern California looking toward the ocean are the Klamath Mountains. Don't miss the opportunity to see the stately Redwoods and sequoias trees  of Redwood National Park. And drive thru the famous Redwood tree.
Making a stop in the quaint town of Eureka with its history and many lovely Victorian architectural homes and businesses.

Following down the Coastal mountain range into Santa Rosa and the famous Napa with wineries and many lovely hotels and shopping stops. 

Next stop is the historic and majestic San Francisco, the 'city by the bay'! It is a vacation spot in and of itself, as you scooter along the Presidio, visit Lombard street, and China town, take a dinner cruise in the bay or a ferry ride and fascinating self guided tour of Alcatraz Island. Also worthy is a Visit to all the famous Piers with shops and dining in this fantastic coastal California City.

Then we come to the quaint town of Half Moon Bay and the famous 'Mavericks' the surf lovers dream.

Now cruise on into Santa Cruz another surfers dream spot.

So much wild life to watch for as you pass the giant habitats of elephant walrus's, Harbor seals lying on the piers in the gorgeous towns of Monterey  and Carmel. Along with award winning golfing and pristine small town markets and restaurants.

Coming up next is the amazing Big Sur. Plenty of stops and photo ops, curvy roads up and down this portion of the California coast on highway 1.

One must not pass any further southward until you take a tour of the Hearst Castle. This is the highlight of the historical newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst. The tour guides make this tour one you will not forget and did I mention the amazing architecture, artwork, &  furniture Mr Hearst brought into this mansion from all over the world?

The sand dunes of Pismo beach are so fun to explore on the rented all terrain four wheelers. This city is known for the best clams and the Clam Chowder is the best I've ever eaten.

Santa Barbara and Carpentaria (one of my favorite towns) are lovely smaller towns along your route down the coast. Carpentaria boasting the safest beaches in the US.

Next up-Malibu and it is a stop you must make for the amazing beaches to the world famous restaurants.

Right next door is the famous pier in Santa Monica, with more great beaches and shopping galore, along with great beachfront Hotels.

On down and past the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, the city of Angels, you will find Laguna Beach and Newport Beach and on into the end of the California coast in the fun laid back city of San Diego, with plenty to do and see like Seaworld, Legoland, the zoo, Dana point, riding bikes on the strand, and miles and miles of beachfront hotels ! 

Let me help you plan a trip to one or more of these amazing Coastal California cities.

Family trip to fabulous beach vacation
I worked with Kerrie on a vacation for my family to Cozumel. She was very responsive and thorough. She took time to understand what our family desired for our trip and even set us up with wonderful excursions. She took the guess work out of our vacation. It was really terrific

Hawaiian Islands family dream trip
Kerrie put together a wonderful trip to Hawaii for our family. It was wonderful in every way. Her suggestions of places to stay gave us the opportunity to make some meals in our condos and save on always eating out. We had a bit of a complicated itinerary due to family coming in and departing from other parts of the states and Kerrie is very detail oriented so that was a huge plus. She gave us plenty of choices too for tours in and around other Hawaii island excursions. It was a dream trip for our family!

Trip of a life time!
It was an absolute pleasure collaborating with Kerrie Ducey! I spent more time planning this vacation with her than my significant other who hates planning. She was such a great resource offering many great suggestions based on what we were looking for and a voice of reason and calmness when it became overwhelming! I could not have pulled this trip off without her help!

Last minute travel Spring break
Kerrie was very quick to respond to my request for help with a vacation for spring break ..My request was short notice and she was able to find a good deal for us to travel to Playa del Carmen area. We had a great time and appreciated the excursion link she sent me to do some great snorkeling too.
She helped make things so easy... All inclusive meals, hotel stay and airport transfers.
