Your Go-T0 for California

Iconic Southern California Pier
Iconic Southern California Pier

California rocks! With its beaches, mountains, wine country, fabulous mega-cities, National Parks, Lake Tahoe, the makings of a stellar vacation are right there. There are fabulous, unique wedding venues, unbelievable romantic resorts, And, of course, Disneyland!I was a California resident for 35 years, and a California based travel advisor for 20 of those years, so I am well-prepared to help YOU discover your own dream California travel experience!


If you are looking for a romantic wedding or honeymoon destination, you will have a difficult time choosing! There are wonderful wineries in Southern California's Temecula area, Central Coast venues, and, of course, Napa and Sonoma. Many couples choose a beach wedding and of course they can have that in California as well.


Your family doesn't need to go to Florida to experience Disney. They will all enjoy Disneyland in Anaheim and all the surrounding beaches, hotels and restaurants as well as Universal Studios, Knotts Berry Farm and much more.


For beach vacations, Southern California has it all! From San Diego to Long Beach there is one fabulous beach community after another. Spend a few days in San Diego, then take in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach.


San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco and in between have so much to offer if you are looking for a great culinary experience, outdoor adventures, romance, or simply to relax on a beach.

Excellent cruise advisor.
Very competent, friendly, and easy to work with. She found us the kind of cruise we wanted when we couldn't find it anywhere online.

Amazing trip
She’s amazing! She’s gone above and beyond several times, from helping us get an additional excursion on our cruise to quantifying how much we could recoup if we had to postpone it.

Total Relaxation
Jerrie has gone above and beyond to accommodate us on our latest trip which involved 6 of us. Three of us came from Tucson and three came from Ohio so that was tricky to plan and get us to our resort within 30 minutes of each other arriving !!!!

So much better than expected!!!
We have never used a Travel Agent before. Jerrie was our first experience and she proved it to be so worthwhile. She booked our first time at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico which was recommended. She did EVERYTHING to make our experience just wonderful with no worries at all. We were so impressed that we came home and booked another all-inclusive with her for our WHOLE FAMILY to go with us. I know it will be a trip we all will cherish.
