Good To Go: California's Green Travel Scene
California's Amazing National Parks in the Spotlight
Car-Free Through California's National Parks and Monuments
Some of the world’s leading adventure lifestyle brands including Patagonia, O’Neill and Hobie were all founded in California. That’s right, adventure calls California home, too. Wherever your adventure dreams lead you: snow-capped summits, waves and whitecaps or solitary desert trails, you’ll find California has an experience waiting to challenge and reward you. Adventures here are only limited by your imagination and can meet or exceed any level you seek. After Hawaii, California is the second home of surfing so it’s easy to see why modern surf culture was born here. Along our 800 miles of coastline, you’ll find waves suitable for everyone from the youngest “grom” to veteran XXL wave seekers. Climbers can scramble boulders in Joshua Tree National Park or scale the massive granite walls of Yosemite. And for skiers and boarders, runs, trails and terrain parks stretching from north to south await. Just ask any paraglider taking off from the chiseled bluffs of Torrey Pines State Preserve – the sky’s the limit when it comes to adventure in California.
