From San Jose to Los Angeles: Adventure with a Touch of Mystery

A trip that is perfect for friends who are passionate about urban legends and outdoor activities. There are several places in the route, shrouded in legends and ominous rumors, however, this is not the heart of the trip. Moving from San Jose to Los Angeles, we will visit the personal residence of Sarah Winchester, known as a the Winchester Mystery House, and in the City of Angels we will hunt for ghosts in Hollywood. And between these cities we will visit places that look mesmerizing and breathtaking even without supernatural stuff. We will be on wide sandy beaches surrounded by cliffs, walk along forest trails and observe sea lions, as well as visit inexpensive, but very worthy restaurants.

Day 6: Final day of the trip


It's time to go home, but we've decided to check out the Los Angeles Museum of Death to tickle our nerves a bit, I should warn you, this place is significantly different from, for example, the Winchester Mystery House, and you should visit it only if you are ready to see really scary stuff.
