California Vacation – Heading to the West Coast in 2020

Chances are you’ve daydreamed about a California vacation from time to time. Maybe more than that even. And respectively so. California is one of the most iconic places to visit in the United States.


California, also known as the “Golden State” is located on the west coast of America. The state is remarkable for the length of its coastline, as well as three divine volcanoes and unique landscapes. Endless deserts, snowy mountains, unsurpassed sights – this is what will delight the eye in California.


This popular tourist destination extends into the Pacific coast and dives 1,400 km south of the Mexican border. Some say it’s the most colorful and vibrant region of North America. 


An extremely surprising state phenomenon is that exotic palm trees give way to coniferous forests. In addition, dazzling fields of California poppy can often be found in the city.


Holidays in the state will be full of vivid emotions if you prefer sightseeing programs. During an exciting trip, you can plunge into the study of interesting facts about monuments and sights.


If you’ve been dreaming of a California vacation here are a few places that you might consider on your adventure.
