Cruising California’s coastline

The California coastline is an outstanding tourist attraction in itself, with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and a beautiful natural landscape. Cruise the Pacific Coast Highway with a bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Bus Rental California, 
following the coastline's course, coming across a number of unique attractions. Travel up and down California’s coast in style and comfort in your rental bus, as you explore its scenic wonders, and find a wealth of things to do and see.
A good place to stop on your rental bus trip is at Laguna Beach in Orange County, which provides an opportunity for rental bus visitors get close to nature. Laguna’s beaches contain a plethora of tide pools that are home to an incredible ecosystem. Sea anemones, mussels, barnacles and crabs make their homes there, all protected by the Marine Life Protection Act. Beaches with tide pools include Shaw's Cove, Rock Pile, Bird Rock Beach, Picnic Beach and Moss Point. Visitors are prohibited from removing any creatures from the tide pools. Talk to your friendly, reliable rental bus driver about timing your trip carefully so you can see them when the tide is out.
Home to California's oldest amusement park, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk features two National Historic Landmarks, a carousel built in 1911 and the wooden roller coaster known as the Giant Dipper, built in 1924. Although these old school rides continue to attract rental bus visitors, an array of arcades, games and thrill rides offer plenty of options for all ages. The recently opened Haunted Castle ride descends below the boardwalk, while the Hurricane roller coaster offers 4.5 Gs and 80-degree banking angles. Laser Tag offers fast-paced adventure for the family, with special lighting and a fog machine enhancing the action. Shopping, miniature golf and live entertainment round out the list of attractions. Steps from the Santa Cruz Beach, the facility presents ocean views on a beachfront setting in Monterey Bay, which are always a favorite of rental bus tourists.
Midway on your rental bus ride between Los Angeles and San Francisco stands the estate formerly owned by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. This stunning edifice stands at the top of a tall hill, overlooking the nearby shoreline. Hearst endeavored to build a castle fit for a European nobleman, with over 50 bedrooms, indoor and outdoor pools, a movie theater, an airfield and a private zoo. Movie stars and Hollywood elites were regular visitors, and Hearst complemented the architecture by assembling one of the most impressive private collections of paintings and sculptures in the world. Public tours are conducted daily, and while the Hearst family retains some property rights, the area is recognized as a National Historic Landmark. Nearby beaches provide plenty of wildlife as well. Rental bus tourists come to see the elephant seals breed there each winter, and the descendants of Hearst's zoo, such as zebras, gazelle and other herd animals, that continue to roam the estate.
