Where to find the best food in California?

Food is big in California! Given its Mexican heritage, California’s typical dishes and ingredients include burritos, carne asada, salsa, and pinquito beans. Also, as many of the country's foremost fast-food chains were established here, such as McDonald’s, cheeseburgers, barbeque, and fries are certainly among California's staples. You'll find simple classics with a Californian twist, such as pizza topped with avocado, goats' cheese, Thai chilli, and basil.

Californian is also renowned for wine and beer. Wash down your meals with local beers such as Pliny the Elder and Lagunitas IPA, or sample renowned cocktails such as California milk punch (a mixture of milk and Jamaican rum), widely served at the state’s bars.

What is the weather like in California?

The Weather in California, the Golden State

Due to its size, California has a wide range of climates. Although most areas are known for their warm and sunny days, climates can be subarctic or subtropical depending on where you are.

It tends to be cooler in coastal cities, such as San Francisco and San Diego, while summers are hotter and winters colder further inland.

The North sees more rain, and places like Sacramento are wet during winter but hot and dry in summer. An alpine climate in mountain ranges like the Sierra Nevada see snow in winter but mild summers.

In the East, deserts at higher elevations have hot summers and cold winters, while lower deserts have relatively frostless mild winters. Death Valley, which is located well below sea level, is known to be the hottest place on earth.

What are the top sights in California?

Explore California's Natural Wonders

Did you know that California has more national parks, historical sites, and monuments than any other state in the US?

The Yosemite National Park is known for its awe-inspiring, plunging waterfalls. Named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984, it has huge granite cliffs, dramatic valleys, and unforgettable nature. All on a gigantic space of 1,100 square miles! It’s no wonder that over 4 million visitors flock here each year. Meanwhile, the Joshua Tree National Park enthralls with its freaky-yet-cool-looking trees that dot the land. Catch glorious sunsets over the grand desert rock formations.

Wine lovers can savour the experience of the Napa and Sonoma wine countries, with their more than 600 wineries. Besides a world-class culinary scene, Napa is known for its meticulously cultivated grapes, which produce wines that rival French produce. Enjoy tasting the wines while feasting your eyes on rolling hills, beautiful plains, and endless vineyards. The agricultural diversity of the fertile land remains one of Sonoma’s greatest prides—and rightfully so. Enjoy it all from the comfort of your California vacation house.

What are the best places to discover the arts and culture of California?

California's Cultural Highlights

LA's Museums and Art Galleries

When you stay in Los Angeles, you'll be close to the city's many cultural venues. Go to the Museum of Contemporary Art, which showcases thousands of 20th-century paintings, and the Getty Villa, a vast museum displaying European paintings, sculptures, and decorative art dating back to the 15th century. For concerts, check out the open-air Greek Theatre and the Hollywood Bowl.

San Francisco's Museums and Art Galleries

San Francisco's cultural attractions are a close match for LA's. US art museums don’t come much bigger than the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), which displays a vast collection of contemporary paintings, sculpture, photography, and media arts. Meanwhile, the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center, one of the country's largest, stages opera, theatre, symphony, and classical music productions.

California's Free Spirit

There is wide acceptance of diversity in California and a love of innovative ideas. This is, after all, the birthplace of the 60s hippie movement, home to Hollywood, as well as some of the greatest artists in the world. So if art is what you're looking for, base yourself in Southern California where you'll find all sorts of wonderful outdoor art.

Located in the middle of the desert, Salvation Mountain is an art oasis by local resident Leonard Knight. Made entirely of adobe, straw, clay, and half a million gallons of paint, its combines religious scriptures with colourful flowers, trees, the sun, and birds.

Or check out the Integratron, a dome built in the 50s by George Van Tassel, a self-proclaimed UFO abductee who claims that the planet Venus's inhabitants gave him the instructions to build the structure. Supposedly capable of rejuvenation due to its magnetic fields, it proves that nothing is too eccentric for California.

What are the best activities for families in California?
