From the 17 museums and cultural institutions in San Diego’s Balboa Park to Hearst Castle along the Central Coast to the world-class offerings in San Francisco, the Golden State is blessed with an embarrassment of riches. Don’t miss the artwork at Los Angeles County icons like the Getty Center and The Broad, but also keep an eye out for unique collections around the state, including the International Surf Museum in Huntington Beach and performing arts troupes from Oakland to Costa Mesa.
