Your California Bucket List: San Francisco's painted ladies, San Diego's green flashes, Convict Lake's rainbows and more.


Tasmania Magnificent Freycinet National Park on Tasmania's east coast is a highlight. Our day hike revealed many unobstructed panoramas of Tasman Bay and its emerald and azure waters. A visit to Port Arthur, a penal settlement, and the Isle of the Dead, a burial ground for convicts in the 1800s, is entertaining. Finally, a visit to Hobart, the capital and once a shipbuilding and whaling port, adds to Tasmania's diversity. Info: -- Linda Mattick, Manhattan Beach
