This map of Southern California cities shows the best tourist spots. The cities along the coast are noted for their great beaches, though some have other major attractions as well. There’s Long Beach, with the Aquarium of the Pacific and the Queen Mary. San Diego has the world-famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and Balboa Park.
Out in the desert, Palm Springs is the golf and leisure playground, while in the mountains, Big Bear offers fishing, hiking, camping and, during the winter, skiing.
Of course, the two major travel destinations are the greater Los Angeles area, and Anaheim, home of the most famous tourist attractions in Southern California, Disneyland theme park and Disney’s California Adventure.
