If you think you’ve already explored much of California, you might find yourself lacking in experience with the wild and outdoor adventures that this diverse state has to offer. A short weekend could be enough for you to leave the busy streets of San Francisco and take a journey with your friends and family to discover wildlife and nature at its best. So if you are up to some camping, hiking and picnicking, the Sequoia National Park is the destination for you.

National parks do give us a calming and relaxing feeling with its beautiful scenery and landscapes. On the other hand, they also challenge our physical fitness with lots of sporty activities and adventures that they provide. These parks also give us new knowledge about the flora and fauna within it. You can find the world’s largest tree in this park named the General Sherman Tree and a Sequoia-rimmed meadow called the “gem of the Sierra.”

The Sequoia National Park became a popular destination because of warm and beautiful weather in the summer and cooler and colorful scenery during fall. Nights in this national park is filled with relaxing starry skies made for camping. This place is less busy that the Yellowstone and the Kings Canyon so you have better chances of bonding with your family and enjoying your break to the fullest.
Whether for business or pleasure, people find traveling by airplane the most convenient way to go from one place to another. Because of this, many bank and credit card companies have teamed up with different airline companies to come up with the frequent flyer miles or mileage point reward system. You will discover that you earn these miles faster if you book frequently with only one airline. Some credit card with airline rewards program will earn your mileage with every penny you spend on shopping, groceries, utilities and your travel.
So take advantage of using mileage points in reducing travel expenses and don’t ever let them go to waste. Keep in mind that these miles have an expiry period and you can lose all of them if you haven’t used them before their expiry. Some credit card programs allow transfer of miles to your relative or your friends. Check for different airline policies so you won’t mix up when booking for your next travel. You may also cash in miles so that you can buy a ticket for someone else, which is ideal if you don’t have any travel plans yet and you have expiring miles any time soon. Also keep in mind that only a limited number of seats are allotted for miles users but you may also use this perk to upgrade your booking!

A well-made blazer or lightweight sweater is an excellent addition even if you are planning on packing light. Opt for a sweater or blazer in a color that will work well with several outfits. Black is the perfect choice since it can be worn several times and with a wide range of clothing choices. You will also need to have at least outfit that you can wear for evenings out. Wrap dresses and basic slacks with a button down shirt are casual enough for dinner but can double for formal events if needed.
