California has at least three (3) of the top five (5) most visited national parks in the country – Sequoia, Yosemite and Redwood. In Redwood you can easily standing next to a 250-foot Redwood! In Jalama Beach, a County park just west of the city of Lompoc, you can be able to camping in front to the beach, wake up and jump into the water to have a great surf experience.
California have beautiful sunsets and the most protected, untouched coastlines in America… 840 miles! Cities like Los Angeles, a fascinating multicultural metropole with a fantastic whether all year around. One of the most populous cities in the country, but with millions of acres of wilderness!
And that’s why we love it. One of the best thing about living in California is how easily access these amazing wilderness places is. Within a couple of hours drive from big cities like L.A, San Francisco or San Diego, and you will find yourself surrounded by big trees, lakes and tall mountains.
