Thanks to its 840 miles of coastline, nine national parks, thousands of campgrounds, and a scenic diversity unparalleled on the planet, California is truly an outdoor enthusiasts’ dream. You can drive dune buggies in the desert, ride the whitewater on a kayak or raft, soar above the ocean on a hang glider, ski in the backcountry, rock climb in Yosemite, explore coastal islands above or below the water, and so much more. Let your imagination be your guide and explore the endless opportunities in the Golden State.
