Free Online Coastal California Trip Planner

Spring is here, which means its road trip time. If you're heading out to coastal California, which is my neck of the woods, consider picking up Lonely Planet's brand-new Coastal California guidebook, which I co-wrote.

Want a free sneak peek before you buy? Start dreaming about your coastal California road trip by downloading the free "Getting Started" chapter PDF here. Peruse our top 8 expert itineraries, including coastal California for kids, kitsch lovers, outdoor enthusiasts and yes, freaks & weirdos (we love 'em here!).

You'll also get top 10 lists for California's best parties and parades and hidden beaches, a round-up of the best travel literature about the Golden State and tips for greener, more sustainable eco-travel, plus our recommendations for the best months to go (hint: it's not June through August).

Eager to take a cross-country road trip or itching for a tropical island getaway ? Check out these free trip-planning guides to the USA, Hawaii and Oahu, excerpted from other Lonely Planet guides I co-wrote.

  1. Weather couldn't be better here in central CA, and what better way to get started with exploring something new is to DL the "getting started" chapter you've linked to. Thanks for your hard work!
