Overview

Book online and enjoy exclusive savings on Topdeck's 13 Day Get Social: USA West Coast. ‘You could travel the world, but nothing comes close to the golden coast’. And yes, Katy Perry – we’d have to agree. Roll from the sun-soaked and painfully attractive Pacific Coast, through the red expanses of the desert, and on to some straight-up ICONS (looking at you Grand Canyon, Vegas and San Fran). Plus: do it all with an awesome bunch of Topdeckers just as hungry for adventure as you are. West is best? It’s time to find out.

Itinerary

La la land: a city characterised by its blissful lack of touch with reality. And the perfect place to sack off your everyday routine and catapult into a two-week Californian adventure. First: meet your Topdeck fam. Then: we'll get our bearings around this ginormous city on a driving tour.

Get ready for LA big guns: Santa Monica and Venice Beach. Spot roller skaters gliding along Santa Monica boardwalk – their skills? Next level. Witness allll the palm trees. You're bouta see that Venice Beach pic for real. No filter required. Tonight, it's time get to know the gang a little better with an included group dinner. (D)

Sun-kissed. Creative. Ruggedly good looking. LA is your ideal Tinder date – minus the swiping and awkward small talk. This morning we'll take to the Hollywood Hills with our Trip Leader – expect the inside scoop on the movie biz and some BIG white letters (if you're looking for a sign, this is it).

Afterwards, rest your legs and keep those eyes peeled. We're gonna see star-studded scenes on another driving tour. Spot your fav celebs at Hollywood's Walk of Fame. There's more than *drumroll please* 2700 concrete stars. For real. Then: turn up the boujee volume, we're heading to Beverly Hills. Swoon in shopping heaven along Rodeo Drive. Ogle super luxurious cribs with big name owners. Think: Hayley Bieber, Queen Bey, Taylor Swift. You never know who you're gonna rub shoulders with in the 90210 zip code. Hint: the bigger the sunnies, the bigger the star.

Jump back on the coach amigos, today we're heading down the Pacific Coast to San Diego. After a drive around town, we'll park up at Mission Beach. Your next mission? Explore this beaut of a city! Ride the rollercoaster at Belmont Park. Stretch your legs along the beachfront boardwalk. Tuck into a California Burrito – they were born here. Or get your culture fix at Balboa Park, chock-a-block with alllll the museums and galleries. This eve? Rally the troops, make a beeline for Old Town and get stuck into an authentic Mexican feast. Technicolour flags, tortillas and tequila = good times all round.

*FREE DAY KLAXON!*. Need some suggestions? If aircraft carriers are your thing, there's an optional trip to the USS Midway to get on board with. Or take Fleetwood's advice and go your own way – slip on the Nikes and hit the lesser-known hiking trails around Balboa Park, or head to Little Italy for not-so-little food portions. Top tip for your free eve? Find out why they call this place ‘America's Craft Beer Captial' on a micro-brewery crawl with your trip mates (spoiler: there are over 150 to pick from...). (B)

There's time for one last dip in the Pacific Ocean before we roll onto Arizona today. This state is made for road trips. Stretches of endless sky. Expanses of red desert. Centuries-old history. And some pretty famous rock formations. Next: straighten your neckerchief and shine up that sheriff badge.

When we pull up in Prescott, the saloons of Whiskey Row await. During the Cali Gold Rush this place was heaving with cowboys and miners searching for a shot (or a shoot). After going down in a blaze of flames in 1900, it was rebuilt to its heyday glory. Ready for a real wild (west) experience? Get out there, partner! (B)

Stock up on snacks and share around the AUX cord – we're going to blast some banging tunes on our way to Flagstaff (the gateway to the Grand Canyon). Later: get all starry-eyed with a night-time tour at Lowell Observatory. Stargazing got you feeling tiny? We'll continue the theme tomorrow – you've seen the pictures, but nothing can prepare you for the feels you'll have standing on the edge of something so mighty. (B)

This is it folks, the moment you've been waiting for. The grandest of canyons awaits! One word to describe this place: mesmerising. And the only way to see one of the world's most incredible natural wonders in its entirety, is from the sky. DW we've organised an optional heli-tour for you. After you've maxed out your iCloud with group shots (again...), we'll make tracks to Sin City. Seriously, this place is so neon it hurts to look at. But we'll do just that on a driving tour, before settling in for another included feed. (B/D)

From big-budget stage shows, Michelin-star restaurants and Eiffel Tower clones – Vegas is the definition of OTT. But you can't help love it anyway. Today, America's Playground is ALL yours. So get out there and make the most of it! Our suggestions? Take an optional heli-tour over The Strip. Catch a ride on the High Roller Observation Wheel. Check out a shooting range, if that's your thing. Or hit up a Vegas-style pool party. Anything goes in this town.

Shake the confetti from your hair, hop on the coach and belt out the trip song (in perfect harmony, obvs) – we're outta here. Next stop? The Sierra Nevada Mountains. This place is Disneyland for outdoor enthusiasts. Where sheer-faced granite walls reign supreme, giant sequoia trees loom over dense forest floors and the sound of thundering waterfalls fill the air.

Keen to show off your spider-monkey-worthy swinging skills? There's an optional aerial adventure course on the cards. Over dinner tonight, make a plan of attack for your free day tomorrow – your expert Trip Leader has plenty of suggestions. (D)

There aren't enough adjectives to describe this place – so we're not going to try. You've got a full day to experience the magic of Yosemite (yo-sem-it-ee) for yourself. Don't waste a second. Start with the Mist Trail for incredible views that compensate for the burning calves. Follow the trail to the top of Vernal Falls and be rewarded with a refreshing dip in Emerald Pool.

Want more of a challenge? Follow ‘nature's staircase' to the top of Navada Falls. DW if walking isn't your thing – there's a free shuttle to get around. Keep your eyes peeled for deer, bears and golden eagles. David Attenborough wannabes eat your heart out. Worked up an appetite? Dinner's on us tonight – time to swap stories with the fam. (B/L/D)

Up and at ‘em – the adventure sure as hell isn't over yet! We've got our eye on San Fran next. Home of Alcatraz prison and one famous red bridge that's pretending to be golden (we see you). Learn the who's who of ‘The City' on a driving tour – including Pier 39, the Fisherman's Wharf and The Painted Ladies. Then: gather the gang and track down a steaming plate of Joe's Special. What happens when you throw eggs, spinach and ground beef together? THIS. (B/L)

This is our last full day. So, don't hang about! Fuel up with a stack of pancakes that'll put your elastic waistbands to the test. Then, hire a set of wheels and ride across the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito. History buffs will want to tour Alcatraz (get your tix in advance!). Or wander the waterfront and get a pic with the locals at Pier 39. Union Square is the place to flash some plastic before you head home. Then: take a box of Pepple's Donuts to Marshall's Beach to watch the sunset. And tonight? It's our final group din – let's give this epic adventure the send-off it deserves! (D)

You tried the food. Stood on the edge. Said yes to new adventures. New experiences. New friendships. And all in under two weeks! Time to say our goodbyes, swap those TikTok handles and start planning next year's reunion. Our Get Social: Canadian Rockies trip is pretty sweet. Just putting it out there...
