California is a great option for your next vacation. But don’t just focus on the beach or theme parks, make sure to experience the stunning outdoors throughout the Golden State. Californians know their state has a lot to see, from the beautiful coast to the stunning Sierras, the Redwoods to the north and the deserts to the east.

California is blessed with some of America’s most beautiful places. With incredible weather, you can swim, ski, hike, bike, canoe, kayak, trek and climb almost any time of the year.

The core of California’s beautiful natural areas are their wonderful national parks. You’ve probably already heard about Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia, Lassen and Joshua Tree National Parks. But there are also brilliant national forests, like Inyo, Stanislaus, Sierra and so many more.

Consider basing yourself at one of the perfectly positioned mountain towns California has, such as Lake Tahoe or Mammoth – both are great in summer and winter. While Palm Springs is known for the golf and restaurant scene, it also offers fun shoulder season outdoor activities.
