Your position: Home - California


"I love you, California." That's the name of the Golden State's official song and the sentiment of California's diverse residents and visitors alike.

California is almost always sunny and boasts a range of geographies. There's the Pacific Ocean and lines of beautiful white sand beaches, scenic coastal highways, and palm trees galore. There's the desert for camping, partying, and lounging poolside at the oasis. And there's rugged mountains full of ancient redwoods, thick foliage, and unforgettable views.

California is also a state of cities. Home to Hollywood and all things celebrity and chic, Los Angeles is the state's largest draw and the most populous county in all of America. San Diego sits on the southern tip of the state next to the Mexico border and features mild weather, a world-famous zoo, and hosts of cultural activities and pristine beaches. San José is the land of the tech. The third largest city in California is also the capital of Silicon Valley, a global city drawing innovative companies and the geniuses that work there. And then there is San Francisco, the city by the bay, a picturesque place featuring the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, historic cable cars, and Victorian row houses.

It's no wonder 38 million residents of varying ethnic backgrounds choose California.

The State of California is located on the West Coast of the US. It's capital is Sacramento.
