Student trips to West Coast USA
The City of Angels
The West coast of the USA has arguably been at the cutting edge of Western culture since the start of the Twentieth century. Art, music, health, lifestyle trends, major developments such as Silicone Valley’s technological revolutions, car culture, counter-culture, new media, and of course the television and film industry that was born in the orange groves of Southern California and spread its influence all over the world.
A stunning coastline with sunsets out over the immense Pacific, the mighty majesty of Yosemite, and the harsh beauty of the Mojave Desert: the West Coast’s natural attractions are sublime. The lights of Los Angeles and the sights of San Francisco have their own beauty, and both attract millions of visitors each year.
The list of things to do in Los Angeles is as long as the city is vast. The accommodation selected is well located and suits various budgets. Equity has intimate knowledge of the destinations it provides for college and university trips, ensuring your stay will be easy and affordable.
