California — Thanks mostly to the international glamour of Hollywood and the freewheeling reputation of San Francisco, even those who have never been to California have no trouble picturing the famously diverse state. Equally a source of wonder are the Napa and Sonoma wine regions, the towering redwood forests, the dramatic coastline of Big Sur, the sheer cliffs of Yosemite, and the desolate dunes of Death Valley.

Why Go

For everything from the natural and idyllic to the urbane and hedonistic, all packed into the Golden State.
