Go down Lombard street in SF.  California is beautiful.  Have a great time.

Some years ago we rented a camper van and drove around some places.  We started in LA then went to Vegas to visit a relative then came back to Cali and went to Yosemite, and San Fransisco.  Went on a tour of Alcatraz.  Went to several places in the week we were there.

When I go to California, I make sure to go to whatever State Parks are in the area I visit because the state parks in California are always wonderful - almost as good as a national park but smaller.

Besides what is already mentioned, if you're staying in the Los Angeles area check out THE GETTY museum as the views are awesome; and also check out Griffith Observatory -- a landmark.  Also, be sure to check out Venice Beach it's iconic & definitely an experience.  Be sure to check out the famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, & also the streets of Sunset & Melrose -- they are close to Hollywood Blvd.  Melrose has some good shopping.

I have never been to California, but I think it would be great to visit in the future.  I also want to go to Hawaii.  I have been on a cruise and loved every minute of it.
