Welcome to California

California, the third-largest and the most populated U.S. state, has been attracting adventurers and dreamers since Portuguese seafarers arrived at San Diego Bay in 1542. The state offers much to explore, from nearly 900 miles of Pacific Coastline east across the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains to the Mojave Desert and Death Valley, the lowest place in North America. Or north from the Mexican border to San Diego then Los Angeles, second-largest city in the U.S. and on to San Francisco’s Golden Gate and the redwood forests. Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Disneyland, Lake Tahoe, the Napa Wine Country – California has twelve distinct regions and a lifetime’s worth of amazing things to see and do.
