Get to know California with Viator

With model good looks, a famously liberal attitude, and perennial sunshine, California stands out from its US-state neighbors. The Golden State captivates with contrasts, from the Sierra Nevada peaks to the low-lying Death Valley desert. In addition to national parks, Californian cities are the main draw. San Francisco is a global tech-hub a short distance from the wine country, while Los Angeles is a metropolis of Hollywood proportions.
