Channel Islands National Park, CaliforniaLearn More
Those who enjoy the journey as much as the destination itself will want to explore the glories of Channel Islands National Park. Located just off California’s Central Coast, the park spans five distinct islands: Santa Cruz, Anacapa, Santa Rosa, Santa Barbara, and San Miguel. Sometimes referred to as “the Galapagos of North America,” the Channel Islands are only accessible by boat or plane. Isolation from the mainland has allowed evolution to take its natural course, and the islands are home to more than 2,000 plant and animal species (of which, 145 are found nowhere else on Earth). Once on the ground, visitors can spend their days fishing, diving, and surfing before setting up camp for the night. While each season offers its own perks, schedule a trip between December and March to spot grey whales, or during the summer months for blue and humpback whale sightings.
