Winter Storms

A series of winter storms from the Pacific have prompted isolated inland and coastal flooding, power outages, evacuations, and road closures in some areas of California, including parts of Highway 1 on the Central Coast. A number of state parks have been temporarily closed.  Travelers to California should check specific road conditions with Caltrans Quick Map, call ahead to their hotel or other accommodations at intended destinations and always use extra caution on the roadways.


Coronavirus in California - Travel Information

California is open to welcome visitors. Some large indoor events may require proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative test result, and it is best to check with event operators for the latest guidance. The Centers for Disease Control recommends face coverings indoors in counties with high transmission rates. Check the California Department of Public Health website for county-specific information.

For more guidance, here is a collection of California’s local and regional tourism offices.
