Is it safe for visitors to travel to California during wildfire season?

California is a large state and wildfires in one location typically have no impact outside a limited area. Visit California’s first concern is always the safety and well-being of California residents and visitors, so we recommend that visitors who are planning a trip to California check out visitcalifornia.com and contact their hotel and local convention and visitors bureau for all pertinent updates.

Are there any areas of the state travelers should avoid, or alternative routes to consider when traveling across the state?

Visit the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) website for current information on travel and safety conditions.
