Travebuddy came up with a bunch of suggestions for the mostly-missed destinations in Cali. What do you think? Worth it? Not worth it?

1. Monterey Cities along Highway 1 were a popular theme. Check out the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

2. Santa Cruz Monterey’s northern cousin was also very popular for hiking, the boardwalk and beaches during the summer months.

3. Palm Springs - Popular Labor Day weekend destination for hiking, dining and as a local escape from Los Angeles.

4. Lake Tahoe - Lake Tahoe is known for its snow sports, but it was also popular during the summer months for water-skiing, hiking, fishing, and exploring nearby “ice caves.”

5. Napa Valley - This wine-tasting mecca was a favorite weekend getaway for Bay Area natives.

6. Joshua Tree National Park - TravBuddies endured attacks by flying bats to witness beautiful sunrises and spectacular hiking among the alien landscape of Joshua trees.

7. San Simeon - Hearst Castle was a popular stop, as were the 2-ton elephant seals that gather along the shores here.

8. Laguna Beach - Beautiful beaches and the annual Festival of the Arts made this laid back community another favorite along Highway 1.

9. Big Sur – Despite the fires, solitude, star-gazing, and hiking made Big Sur a favorite among those seeking a little more peace, quiet and isolation.

10. Santa Rosa - Wine, hiking and the Charles M. Schulz Museum were popular draws to this Sonoma County destination.
