California is a state known for its diversity, natural beauty, and sense of prosperity.
You will never run out of things to see or do in California, no matter what interests you. There are shops to scour for sales, roller coasters to thrill, and landmarks to explore.
Ride a roller coaster at the beach or a steam train through the red woods. View exotic animals or marine life in spectacular settings. Variety puts the fun in family vacations, and California has it all.
Whether its monster roller coasters or fairytale castles, California's theme parks entertain kids from toddler to teenager. Some cater to the under-10 or 12-and-over crowd, but most pack in rides and attractions for all.
Kids can surf or boogie board the ocean waves, build a castle in the sand, or wade or swim in the blue Pacific. Take your pick of beaches- California's coastline has every type, from remote and deserted to teeming city strands.
As well as being home to many wild and exotic animals, California houses some of the world's finest zoos and aquariums. Rare and endangered species can be seen living in simulations of their natural habitats.
California has many wonderful icons and fascinating facts that make the Golden State so unique. Did you know, the state motto "Eureka" is a Greek word meaning "I have found it" Or, that California has more theme parks and amusement parks than any other state?
