San Francisco, California’s, Palace Hotel, which has 552 rooms and suites spread over nine floors, is a Beaux-Arts gem that has been consistently ranked among the world’s top luxury hotels ever since it opened its doors in 1875. The Garden Court, with its celebrated glass dome, consists of 72,000 individual glass pieces, which take on different hues throughout the day, from delicate ambers to rich cobalt blues.

Travelers to the Pacific Coast will quickly discover the beauty of its mountain ranges, coastal lands, vast deserts and expansive valleys. The region is dominated by some of America’s largest cities, but also important historic sites and towns, national parks, wildernesses and forests. When planning a trip to the Pacific Coast we recommend contacting the state office of tourism and then checking online or calling ahead directly to the restaurant, saloon or hotel you want to visit to ensure it is open or has a room available when you arrive. And don’t forget to schedule extra travel time to enjoy spontaneous stops in this history-rich region.

The California State Historic Park in Columbia was a Gold Rush-era business district and has been preserved with shops, restaurants and two historic hotels—the City and the Fallon. Visitors have a chance to “time-travel” to the 1850s and relax at one of two comfortable hotels, listen to music in historic saloons and take in a performance at the Fallon Theater.
