Buying a California timeshare resale on the secondary market is much less expensive than purchasing direct from the developer because of the fact that the developer incurs marketing costs that are passed on to the consumer. It is the developer who sets the price on the retail market. On the secondary market of time share resales, prices are determined by individuals and current market conditions.
A timeshare interval should be purchased for enjoyment. The purchase of any of the California timeshare resale, whether Diamond timeshare, Marriott timeshare, Westin timeshare or Wyndham timeshare (or any of the non-name brand timeshare resales resorts), ensures that you will be able to vacation and spend quality time with your family and friends each year. You might want to think of it as vacation insurance for all your future vacations!
What to do in California?
Nothing says California more than the Golden Gate Bridge and the year 2012 marks the official 75th birthday of one of the greatest monuments of our time. The iconic Golden Gate Bridge opened to worldwide critical acclaim May 27, 1937, and immediately took its place as one of the most stunning and inspiring technological and engineering marvels of modern times. Anchored by the spectacular Golden Gate National Parks on each side, the 1.7-mile span remains a lasting symbol of American progress and ingenuity, a welcoming and familiar beacon and “Gateway to the Pacific.”
The California State Parks system has treasures as diverse as the state itself. California is where you will find the largest and most diverse natural and cultural heritage holdings of any in the nation. To grasp California’s true gold, you must leave the words behind and go to one of the state’s many special places. Experience the outdoor magic at the edge of Lake Tahoe. Visit the National parks, lakes, rivers, deserts, redwood glens, and beyond to Yosemite, Death Valley and Big Sur — the list of California’s most precious commodities goes on and on.
Want a “taste” of California? Visit a farmers’ market and rub shoulders with celebrity chefs and foodie insiders picking out the finest organic produce. Step into sleek restaurants serving innovative, ultra-fresh California cuisine. Taste gelato made with locally-produced chocolate and toasted hazelnuts, or handmade cheeses from local farms. Drive down a tree-lined lane to wineries in grand chateaus, or relaxed, family-run vineyards where the guy pouring and chatting in the tasting room is a world-class winemaker.
