Southern California is known for so many things – the great weather, variety of activities, beaches, parkland, Hollywood, Disneyland. Sure, there is the traffic and occasional earthquake, but no place is perfect!
What you may not know is that southern California is also a great destination for timeshare vacations. Often overshadowed by places more well-known for timeshares such as Orlando and Las Vegas, the stretch from Los Angeles to San Diego offers some of the most popular timeshare spots in the country.
Terrific beaches, world-class attractions, amazing shopping, restaurants and many of the best golf courses in the world are right in this 130-mile span from downtown LA to the Mexican border.
And it’s not just the coastal communities of southern California that corner the market on fun. Big Bear Lake is about 100 miles essentially due east of Los Angeles in the San Bernardino National Forest and offers wonderful four-season fun – including downhill skiing at Big Bear Mountain Ski Resort. Yes, that’s right, snow skiing in southern California.
Sports fans have an incredible choice of games in the Los Angeles area as the region is home to two pro football teams (Rams and Chargers), two pro basketball teams (Lakers and Clippers), two pro baseball teams (Dodgers and Angels) and two pro hockey teams (Kings and Ducks). Fans across the country can check their favorite team’s schedule to see if or when their team is playing in LA and build a timeshare vacation around the game.
From the sights and sounds of Venice Beach to the First Original McDonald’s Museum in San Bernardino, there is always something quirky to see in SoCal.
Apart from the more famous attractions like Disneyland and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, you can also check out Knott's Berry Farm, the Santa Monica Pier, the cosmos at Griffith Observatory, San Diego Zoo, and the incredible mix of culture and nature of San Diego’s Balboa Park.
