The State of California

California is the third largest state in the country and is a popular tourist destination. Redwood forests, valleys, Sierra Nevada Mountains, cliff-lined beaches, and deserts build a beautiful, natural landscape across the state. The city of Sacramento is the state's capital. The amazing city of Los Angeles is the home of Hollywood and Beverly Hills. San Francisco is known for its hilly streets and the iconic red Golden Gate Bridge you’ve probably seen in a movie or two. California has so much to offer that it's impossible to list it all here. We’ll try our best regardless! 

Culture and Art

Besides thrill and excitement, California is full of historic theaters and museums, and you can find music, dance, and street art across the state. Although most of the entertainment is concentrated in its major cities, you can find something to do anywhere you go.
