Southern California Field Visits: A Guide To Some Of The Most Iconic Landmarks On Earth


Southern California is the place to be, especially if you love nature and exploring. It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth, and this easy-to-read guide will help make sure that your trip to Southern California is a fun and memorable one.

Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is one of the most iconic landmarks on Earth. The canyon’s scale and beauty are unparalleled, but it’s also a place that can be both dangerous and difficult to access. It’s important to know what you’re getting into before visiting this incredible natural wonder!

  • The Grand Canyon is located in Arizona, USA.
  • The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long and 18 miles wide at its widest point–that’s about as long as it takes to drive from Los Angeles all the way across California! It’s also over 6,000 feet deep (about 2km).

Death Valley

Death Valley is a desert valley located in the Mojave Desert of California, USA. The lowest point in North America and the hottest place on Earth, Badwater Basin, is located within Death Valley.

Death Valley has an area of about 3,000 square miles (7,800 km2). It’s surrounded by mountains: Panamint Range on the west; Inyo Mountains on the north; Amargosa Range on the east; Argus Range on its south-west corner near Furnace Creek Ranch Historic District where it meets Joshua Tree National Park which was established in 1994 after much controversy over whether or not to include Death Valley National Park as part of this new national park along with several other areas including Anza Borrego Desert State Park (ABDSP) which borders ABDSP along CA 78 between I-8 at Ocotillo Wells & Palm Springs/San Diego Road exit off Interstate 15 via Highway 79 North towards Indio then turn left at Calle San Felipe Road which turns into State Route 86 Southbound towards Mecca Hills Wilderness Area & Mecca Hills Wilderness Study Area before turning right onto Sunrise Highway towards Coachella Valley Music Festival Grounds…

Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park is a national park located in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, United States. The park is famous for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves and biological diversity.

Yosemite was established on October 1st 1864 by President Abraham Lincoln as part of Yosemite Land Grant which encompassed most of Mariposa County and Tuolumne County (later renamed Madera County). John Muir wrote articles that helped establish this area as a national park during his visits in 1868-69 and 1880-81 respectively.

Big Sur Coastline

Big Sur is a place of extreme beauty. It’s also a place of extreme remoteness, natural wonders and outdoor activities. If you’re looking for something more urban, check out Los Angeles or San Diego. But if you want to get away from it all while still getting your fill of culture and food (and wine), Big Sur will not disappoint!

Los Angeles Hollywood Walk of Fame (Hollywood)

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a walking tour through the heart of Hollywood. There are around 2,600 stars on this stretch of sidewalk, with new ones being added each year. You can find the stars for some of your favorite celebrities (or maybe even yourself!) on this famous street, which runs from Gower Street to La Brea Avenue.

If you’re looking for a fun day trip from LAX airport or want an easy way to spend some time exploring Los Angeles culture, then head over here! It’s located just south of Universal Studios and next door to Dolby Theater (the home base for many award shows).

If you’re planning on visiting during peak season (March through October) make sure that you get there early because parking will be difficult due to high traffic levels during these months..

Santa Monica Pier

The Santa Monica Pier is a popular tourist attraction, and it’s no wonder why. The pier houses several restaurants and shops, including the famous Bubba Gump Shrimp Company restaurant. There are also several amusement park rides located on the boardwalk, including a roller coaster that shoots riders through an underground tunnel!

But what makes this particular landmark so iconic? It’s not just because of its location–although being right off the Pacific Ocean certainly doesn’t hurt–but because of its history as well: back in 1907, it was built using wood from local forests; today it stands at 1/3 of a mile long with an estimated weight of over 2 million pounds!

Venice Beach Boardwalk (Venice Beach)

As you step off the plane and onto Southern California soil, you’re greeted with a warm breeze and an ocean breeze. The sun is shining brightly overhead as you make your way from LAX to Venice Beach in your rental car. You’ve been waiting for this moment for years, ever since you heard about Muscle Beach and its legendary athletes like Arnold Schwarzenegger. You can’t wait to see what else this beautiful city has to offer!

The first thing that strikes you when arriving at Venice Beach is how much it feels like a beach town – there are people riding bikes along the boardwalk, others sitting outside enjoying their breakfast while watching surfers catch waves on their boards (or perhaps even being one of those surfers yourself). There are also lots of shops selling souvenirs such as t-shirts emblazoned with images from movies made here over the years (such as “Goonies”), or paintings done by local artists depicting scenes from daily life around here too… but most importantly: where IS MUSCLE BEACH?!
