Besides the major cities San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego and its state capital Sacramento, California has lots more to offer for its visitors: it hosts both the lowest and highest point in the U.S.A., the hottest place on earth, cooler glaciers and ski slopes, as well as a rugged coastline with beaches, volcanoes, deserts and redwood forests.

Highlights in "The Golden State" are:

  • Napa and Sonoma Valley wine-growing regions

  • The rugged coastline with its surfing hot spots, beaches and vista points along Highway 1 overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the charming, quaint towns of Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, San Simeon and Santa Barbara

  • Lake Tahoe, a pristine lake surrounded by high mountains - a beautiful recreation spot in winter and in summer

  • Yosemite National Park, one of the oldest, most scenic and famous national parks in the U.S.A. with its picturesque mountains, valleys, rivers, waterfalls and sheer granite faces draws every kind of visitor including hikers, artists and serious climbers.

  • Death Valley National Park and its salt fields, dry lands, sand dunes and rugged mountains

  • Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and their giant redwood trees, granite peaks and mountain lakes
