Find a wealth of travel tips, inspiration, and free Golden State activities in this 196-page magazine

Posted 4 months agoby Kate Eplboim

Looking to explore the vast and varied Golden State with brand-new eyes? The highly informative and totally free 2023 California Visitor’s Guide: The Best of California is now available and will prove invaluable for anyone dreaming about a fabulous escape.

In an exclusive interview, actress-entrepreneur Jessica Alba shares stories of her early upbringing and explains what prompted her to start an eco-friendly home-goods business. The mother of three also describes her favorite aspects of the state via the California Questionnaire.

This year’s guide also includes a six-page feature highlighting 33 zero-cost activities—including everything from strolling the grounds at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to spotting sunbathing elephant seals along the Central Coast.

With 279 state parks (and one more opening this summer), it’s safe to say that California offers plenty of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. In “California State Parks: An A-to-Z Guide,” readers will learn about a remote beach with bowling ball–shaped rock formations; a photogenic ghost town that includes nearly 200 abandoned buildings; a lava springs site that you can only access via boat; a lineup of lavish mansions built in a bygone era; and numerous places to rock climb, kayak, hike, and more.

Other issue highlights include “All-Access Family Getaways,” a mom-led article celebrating the fact that today’s families come in all shapes, sizes, and capabilities; “5 California Snow Adventures,” which unveils custom-built itineraries for different types of winter fans; and “Golden Age,” a visual feature showcasing California’s extraordinary—and colorful—array of craft beer.

As always, the 2023 California Visitor’s Guide: The Best of California includes detailed information about the state’s 12 travel regions, including maps, listings, and scores of travel tips from passionate locals. Learn where these dynamic residents from big cities and small towns across the state like to dine, drink, and unwind in their own backyard.
