Where to go in California

The diverse landscape of California, thanks largely to the huge amount of tectonic activity it experiences, ranges from the dense forests of Yosemite National Park to the beaches of Santa Monica, to the appropriately named Death Valley, which is as barren as it is hot. The cities aren't half bad either, with sprawling Los Angeles, hilly San Francisco, the surf culture of Santa Cruz and California's historic 'first city' of Monterey. Famously one of the best ways to see this golden state is by road, and we could not agree more as Highway One really is one of the most scenic routes in the country. So take a look at our top picks for where to go in California for more.
