National Geographic : 1973 May
Ifyou don't show your kids California, who will? The giant redwoods. See them on an American Airlines Fly/Drive Vacation. Wouldn't it be a shame if your kids grew up without ever having seen the redwoods? Or a sunset on the beach at Monterey? Or Disneyland? California has so many things for fam ilies to see and do. And this summer, we're giving you a chance to see them. We've put together what we think are, dollar for dollar, the best Fly/Drive Vaca tions any airline has ever offered. They start at $178 and run to $238 for a week. And they all include an Avis or Hertz car with unlimited mileage. (You pay for gas.) Plus 6 nights' accom modations for up to a family of four at Sheraton Inns, Holiday Inns and Hyatt Houses. Air fare, of course, is extra (e.g. New York to Los An geles is $234* for adults and we have special fares for children). Our $187 vacation, for example, gives you an Avis car for a week and 6 nights' accommodations at Lost many of the Holiday Inns around the State of California. So you can do as you please, see whatever you please for as long as you please. If you're in San Francisco, you might drive out to Yosemite for a picnic. And do a little hiking to work it off. If you're in Los Angeles, you could head out to a movie studio and show the kids what the real world isn't like. In San Diego, you might drive out to see a man ride a killer whale at Sea World. Or let the kids ride a burro at Calico, a restored mining town. Why not talk to your Travel Agent. And ask him about our Fly/Drive Vacations, including auto-tape tours, to San Francisco, Los An geles and San Diego. (If you like, you can fly into one city and fly Some from another.) There's nothing we'd like better than to make this summer's family vacation one you'll always remem ber. And one your children will never forget. American Airlines ToThe Good Life?
