Back to nature
California’s facade is always fresh, but it’s actually older than it seems.
After the threat of mining, logging, and oil drilling during the 19-century, this sunny state was revitalized by pioneering environmentalists who cleaned the beaches, reclaimed rivers, and rescued old-growth trees.
You’ll notice California’s wealth of natural wonders once you visit, and they’re delightfully well-maintained.

What would America’s menu be like without California on the map? Probably boring and predictable.
The Golden State is responsible for producing most of the USA’s fresh produce and generates over 90% of the nation’s wine-making grapes. When Californians cook, trends kick-off, and the nation watches and learns from the sidelines.
Tech and TV
Northern California is home to tech giants like Apple, Facebook, Netflix, and more, while Southern California is home to Hollywood, celebrities, and big movie studios.
Which region to visit depends on what type of traveler you are. From hobnobbing with celebrities to gawking at the next big technological advancement, the choice is yours.
