Activities

Destination for beach bums

While Northern California's Big Sur beaches attract a lot of attention, its the climate down south which draws millions of visitors to the hundreds of miles of pristine white sandy beaches. Offering world class surfing, snorkeling, diving, and parasailing opportunities--the beaches of California aren't so much a destination as a way of life.

Destination for cinema lovers

California is where the magic happens--cinematically, of course. Film enthusiasts will love the abundance of theaters, concert halls, and movie theaters which help to make Los Angeles one of the world capitals of entertainment. However, the most famous destination for visitors in Southern California continues to be centered around the Hollywood neighborhood--where creative types flock for a chance in the motion picture limelight.

Destination for entrepreneurs

Northern California's Silicon Valley just outside of San Francisco has been attracting tech entrepreneurs for the past 15 years to create innovative and revolutionary technologies. Famous companies like Airbnb, Pixar, Facebook, and Netflix have their headquarters in the "Bay Area," with many more competitors setting up shop every day.

Skateboarding was first invented in Los Angeles in 1958 by Bill Richards. The board, which was made from up-cycled roller-skates, was invented in order to help surfers practice during their down time and still "surf" when there were no waves.
