Who We Are
We are a collection of native Californians and travelers who spend our time exploring and discovering California. Our families have been in California for several generations even dating back to the Gold Rush era. Others are recent residents of the state who enjoy the sunshine, camping, sightseeing, skiing and more that California has to offer. We've spent a lifetime compiling the data contained on this site and continue to contribute to it on a daily basis. The difference between us and other travel websites is that we've been there and done that.
It's All About You
Simply put, we want you to have a fantastic, unforgettable time in California. We want to provide you with as much information possible so you can maximize your trip in our Golden State. Our intent is to not only provide information on the popular tourist destinations, but to also let you know about the obscure, less traveled destinations that only locals of this state would know about. Of course we'll give you local insight on the popular desinations too. We don't plan on building the most extensive California directory, but instead plan on an extensive listing of places and adventures that are sure to please you.
