Winter and spring are prime times to visit California -- and Travelzoo has deals across the southern part of the state for all types of travelers.
Trips to a bigger city like Los Angeles are often cheaper in spring -- and there’s usually less smog then as well. The same is true for beach towns like San Diego and the central coast down to Temecula -- spring or winter will also be your best bets for savings.
The exception: desert towns. Places like Palm Springs will be most expensive in winter but visiting outside of these peak periods will show you some literal (and figurative) green.
