California is seen as a global pioneer in popular culture, media, knowledge, creativity, environmentalism, economics, politics, and music. California is a republic in the Pacific region of the United States. It is the most populated state in the United States and the third-largest in the country. In terms of tourism, California leads by example in the United States. San Francisco and Los Angeles are the first places that come to peoples mind when we talk about visiting California. But there are several other hidden gems in California to be explored.
California is a lush, pleasant place where you will find a close-equal mix of wineries and desert, coasts and hills, hippies and traditionalists. Catch an awesome wave in the Big Sur or whirl a cocktail in the Napa Valley. Be mesmerised by the night sky of Joshua Tree, or simply Hollywood star-gaze. Swish down the hills of the Tahoe ski area, or cross the Golden Gate Bridge with the top down and the music blast. Don’t hesitate, above all, to soak some of the Golden State sunlight.
* Redwoods in Arcata
Established as the Sea of the Sixties, Arcata is among the most radical places on the North Coast. Its civic areas around the historic central park, populated by students of Humboldt State University, ecological campaigners and visitors. Try staring at the trees from the Redwood Stream Buckarettes saddle. Two-hour horse riding tours take you across old-growth forests. You can even ride your horse through a tree. Finally, ensure you soak from the deck of Eureka’s Madaket in the evening.
* Pismo beach
Pismo Beach is located in the southern part of San Luis Obispo County, on the main Coast of California, United States. The county is made of 5 states. Pismo State Beach and Oceano Dunes are famous areas to explore on the southern side of the island. A haven for thousands of migratory monarch butterflies per year, the state beach also provides two campsites for travelling visitors to spend the night. It’s one of the hidden treasures to be discovered in California.
Oceano Dunes is one of the few state-run Special Vehicle recreational facilities to offer a great chance to drive ATVs and off-road vehicles through sand dunes. In fact, you can also take a leisurely stroll around our award-winning boardwalk next to the Pismo Pier. Consider shopping at the Pismo Beach Exclusive Stores and make sure to check out the California Welcome Center.
* Hearst Castle

Planned by William Randolph Hearst, media tycoon, and his designer Julia Morgan, it was constructed between 1919 and 1947.

It is 24 mi (39 km) west of Willits, at an elevation of 85 feet (26 m). Fort Bragg is a tourist destination because of its picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean. Among its notable points of interest are Glass Beach and the California Western Railroad (popularly known as the “Skunk Train”). It is illegal to remove any sea glass from the area. But it’s easy to appreciate the smooth textures during a visit.
* Mammoth Hot Springs
In the Yellowstone National Park next to fort Yellowstone and the Historical District of Mammoth Hot Springs lies one of the most offbeat places in California. Mammoth Hot Springs is a large complex of thermal springs on a hill of travertine. It has been produced for thousands of years as spring hot water cools calcium carbonate. It is said to have deposits of over two tonnes of calcium carbonate flow every day into the mammoth. Travertine rocks are also flourishing due to the tremendous volume of geothermal currents.
