On the Map: California
By: Ariana N.
California is known for many things. There are beautiful beaches that run all along the coast, giant Redwood and Sequoia forests, National parks, the Sierras and down to Death Valley.
You will find breathtaking hikes in the mountains and in the hills of the valleys, acres of farmland, amazing weather all year around, multiple movie and television studios, bars and music venues around every corner in LA, amusement parks throughout the state, a huge fan base of multiple sport teams and amazing places to shop and eat! From San Diego to downtown LA, Melrose, Hollywood, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, to Humboldt County, there will always be something fun to do no matter what your style of fun is.
Disneyland is my go to place during the summer. Even if you go on the wrong day of the week when it is very crowded (just like the freeways in LA) with tourists visiting from all over the world the energy is still so great. The cast members that work there always have an upbeat attitude and make the experience fun, plus the food there is amazing!
Another go to would be the beach; whether it be Santa Monica, Malibu, Santa Cruz or up in Humboldt County it is always so relaxing and totally a Cali activity.
With multiple teams to cheer for it is always exciting to get to game and cheer for a team; for me it would be the Dodgers. Lastly the shopping and eateries in California are amazing, and because of the huge melting pot of people there are there will always be something for each person's own taste.
