About California

California has always been a haven for dreamers, doers and sun-worshippers . With diverse geography ranging from enchanting redwood forests in the north, the unforgiving yet beautiful Mojave Desert in the southeast, the towering Sierra Nevada mountains to the northeast and the perpetually sparkling Pacific Ocean to the west, the Golden State offers much to explore in addition to its world-famous big cities and charming small towns. California is America’s most populous state, enriched by the vibrant and diverse cultures of its people. California is a great destination for travelers exploring different terrains and different cultures.
