It goes without saying that California is one of the most popular states in the USA. Home to exciting cities, such as Los Angeles and San Francisco, “The Golden State” attracts millions of visitors each year who are looking to get the Californian experience. The state also offers plenty of scenic landscapes of beaches, mountains, and even deserts. It is also worth mentioning that California is one of the most ethnically diverse states in the country, which is due to the Gold Rush from 1848 when huge waves of immigrants from all parts of the world came to California in hopes of finding a better life.
California is stretched along the Pacific Coast with distinct differences between the northern and southern part of the state. While Southern California stays sunny and mild year-round, the northern part does see more differences in temperature throughout the year. In the north, you will find exciting cities such as San Francisco and the state’s capital city of Sacramento.
