Places to Visit in California


There are so many great places to visit in California.  Below is our list we recommend you visit, and the other a list of places we have yet to explore.  California is definitely a vast state with lots of things to do and sites to see.  You can visit the state in multiple trips by first seeing the north or south separately, or with a road trip.  I would recommend a road trip and start from San Diego working your way up along the coast to San Francisco or even to Napa, this way you see a huge chunk of California on your fist visit.  Otherwise, seeing the state in segments is probably a good idea.  Hope this sparks ideas for a trip to California!
