Even with high gas prices, there are travel deals to be had. Here’s some of the latest from California:
Deal: Reach for the Stars Family Deal and Gas Bump
Location: Yosemite–Madera County, CA
Taking the family to Yosemite National Park doesn’t require that everyone love camping. This nice deal from Yosemite-Madera County sets up the kids with a tent and sleeping gear inside your hotel room at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Oakhurst Yosemite, 15 miles from the national park’s south gate. Or choose the same hotel’s deal that offers a $25 gas card for the parents. Adding to its family-friendly appeal, the hotel has a pool and free breakfast.
Deal: Best of L.A. Deal
Location: Los Angeles, CA
The 17-story Omni Los Angeles California Plaza offers a convenient perch on Bunker Hill in Downtown Los Angeles, located near Grand Central Market, The Broad Museum, and Angels Flight Railway. Streamline your trip even more with this deal that includes a $25 credit with Uber, either for rides or Uber eats. Ongoing.
Location: Napa Valley, CA
Make your own spring break at St. Helena’s Wine Country Inn, which features 20 rooms and five cottages with decor inspired by the vineyard scenery. Stay three nights between Sunday and Thursday and get up to 30 percent off, as well as a split of wine upon check-in and daily breakfast delivery (good through April 30). Check out Visit Napa Valley for more offers, like one where California residents can get discounts of up to 25 percent (with ID) at resorts such as the Silverado Resort & Spa.
Location: Carlsbad, CA
If you go even two times during a year, an annual pass to a theme park pretty much pays for itself. This new deal at the Carlsbad theme park packs in even more value. Buy three Platinum or Elite annual passes, then get the fourth free. Both of these pass levels include admission to the main theme park, LEGOLAND Water Park, and SEA LIFE Aquarium, and adds free parking plus discounts on dining and shopping. The Elite option ups the ante by having no blackout dates.
Deal: Third Night Free
Location: Santa Barbara, CA
More than a dozen hotels are offering third-night free deals through April 30 in the American Riviera. Choose from options such as The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara, the Brisas Del Mar, Inn at the Beach, and the Cheshire Cat Inn. Planning further ahead? Check out the Stay Savvy Deal at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beach Resort, granting a third night free on weeknights (good through July 29).
Location: Visalia, CA
Plan now for your late spring or summer trip to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. The 16-passenger Sequoia Shuttle will resume service between Visalia and Sequoia National Park starting May 26, running through September 11. The shuttles stop at several Visalia hotels, an easy launching pad into the big tree–lined national parks, and there are routes inside the parks, too. Each shuttle offers comfy seats, luggage space, and features a video about the Giant Forest. Round-trip tickets are $20 per person and include your park entry fee.
Location: Indian Wells, CA
Take the whole family to the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa, a Greater Palm Springs resort with a sand-beach pool, golf, and a spa. The deal includes a large pizza and soft drinks upon arrival, then a sweet $100 in resort credit per night. Good for stays between March 27–April 25.
