Californians are a pretty relaxed bunch, after all, why wouldn’t we be with 360 days of sunshine and 840 miles of coastline? However, our home state love can become a bit fanatical at times and we recommend that you quit while you’re ahead if you ever try to convince us that certain things are better (or worse) where you’re from.
National and State Parks
From the stunning seascapes of the Channel Islands to the harsh beauty of Death Valley to the pristine alpine air of Yosemite, our parks are pretty amazing and with so many to choose from you’ll never be bored. After all, it might take you a lifetime to make it through all 118 State Parks, 31 National Wildlife Refuges, 11 State Reserves, 11 State Wildlife Areas, and 9 National Parks.
