Congratulations on passing your Driver’s Ed California class! Listening to lectures and reading about the rules of the road is no easy feat. Now, you’re just another step closer to unlocking the absolute freedom you get from driving on the open roads.
But, now that you have your driver’s license… what do you do?
You have all these options, but no road map to the next step. There’re tons of ways you can celebrate your newfound freedom – one of them is visiting the top teen destinations in California. That’s why we’ve compiled the best list of destinations for teenagers.
Universal Studios Hollywood
Universal Studios Hollywood is a film and studio theme park located in the heart of Los Angeles, California. You can engage with your favorite films, television shows, and other entertainment in the form of rollercoasters, thrill rides, and tours. You’ll also be able to engage various social activities within the plethora of restaurants and pit stops the park offers.
Yosemite National Park
If you’re looking for something a little lower key, then check out Yosemite National Park. It’s one of the most popular camping, hiking, and sightseeing locations in California. You’ll be able to experience the best of Northwest California nature. If you can get past the visitor’s waitlist, you’ll get to create magnificent memories within the serene beauty of the campgrounds.
San Diego Zoo
San Diego is home to clean beaches, nightlife, and the famous San Diego Zoo. For the perfect road trip journey, consider checking out the San Diego Zoo and the greater city. It’s teaming with fun activities that everyone will be able to enjoy. When you get tired of seeing exotic animals – some of which you won’t be able to see anywhere else in the country – then you can soak up some sun on the beach. Nothing like coming back from summer vacation with a San Diego tan.
Huntington State Beach
Speaking of beaches, the Huntington State Beach is one of the best beaches to visit in the entire state. California is known for beaches, so having a great reputation is an achievement. Some of the qualities of this destination includes a clean, secluded beach, perfect waves, and a quaint, nearby town for after-beach grubbing at one of the local restaurants.
Six Flags Magic Mountain
Six Flags: Magic Mountain is an amusement park with high thrill rollercoasters and other, milder, rides. Located in Santa Clarita, California, Six Flags: Magic Mountain is a hotspot for people who are seeking a rush. Just don’t drive home like you’re on a rollercoaster…
Catering more towards a younger audience, Legoland, California will make you relive your earlier years. Despite it’s young target audience, everyone can have fun at Legoland, because… you know, it’s a land made up of Legos. Your fun ends with the limitations of your own imagination.
The Living Desert is a little treasure that most people haven’t heard about. Located in Palm Desert, this destination is an open botanical garden and wildlife sanctuary for animals from North America and Africa. You can see everything from exotic plant life to a giraffe walking in an open field. This is as close as you can get to an African walkabout in California.
Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge might be considered a cliché destination, but there’s a reason why it’s so popular. It’s a marvel of human ingenuity and the perfect post to make on Instagram. Snapping a picture of the beautiful bridge at night will make all your friends envious of your #GoldenGateBridge photos.
