Visit Santa Cruz, Oakland, Sacramento, Napa and other unique destinations. From the sophistication of San Francisco, CA and high tech advances of San Jose to ancient sequoia forests and the untamed wilderness of its many parks, Northern California is land of contrasts, breathtakingly beautiful, cherished and protected, visited by millions, and painted, described, and loved by artists for centuries.
Big Sur is a spectacularly beautiful stretch of California’s central coast located between Carmel and San Simeon, snuggled between the steep slopes of the Santa Lucia Mountains and the Pacific. Most tourists see this scenic area from the narrow State Route 1, which winds and turns beside steep seaside cliffs, offering lookout points every now and then.
The whole wild and misty area is very sparsely populated and offers great opportunities for hiking, beach combing, exploring, whale watching, and camping. Artists and writers discovered the area in the 1950s and ‘60s, finding inspiration in the rugged beauty and untamed wilderness. You can visit the house of Henry Miller, today a memorial library, McWay Falls and Cove, Bixby Creek Bridge, many small, quaint inns and restaurants, small picturesque beaches that are not easy to access but well worth it, and a richness of rare plants and animals.
The most famous, and the oldest, national park in the world, Yosemite National Park in north California is 1,200 square miles of some of nature’s most beautiful creations, from deep valleys, wildflower-covered meadows, and 3,000-year-old giant sequoias to the vast High Sierra Mountains wilderness and thundering waterfalls that dry up in August, and so much more. Start your exploration in the valley, a one-mile-wide and seven-mile-long canyon created by a river and shaped by glaciers.
It is surrounded by enormous walls of towering domes and pinnacles, with El Capitan, the world’s largest exposed granite monolith, towering above the valley. From here, you can take one of the many marked trails that offer 800 miles of hiking through the park, from easy walks through forests to week-long endurance tests up the High Sierras. Along the way, you can spot the chipmunks, mule deer, brush rabbits, marmots, and warblers. Take a walk through towering red fir and pine forests, flowering dogwood and dwarf willows, enormous ancient sequoias, pass spectacular waterfalls and cool brooks. And once you leave the valley, you will not have to worry about the four million people that come to the park each year, you can be as alone as you wish, just you and nature.
Located on the northern end of Monterey Bay about 32 miles from San Jose, Santa Cruz is a quintessential small coastal town with beautiful sandy beaches, world-famous surf, spectacular mountains covered with ancient redwood forests, serene organic farms, and a thriving wine and beer scene.
Students from the University of California Santa Cruz add to the lively atmosphere and tourists love the combination of natural beauty and the old-town charm of historic Santa Cruz as well as the fantastic entertainment options at the oceanfront amusement park and the beautiful Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Santa Cruz is a great place to learn to surf, watch experienced surfers, and get into the surfing spirit at Steamer Lane or at Pleasure Point.
Snuggled between South Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains, San Jose is the heart of Silicon Valley and the Bay Area’s main technological hub. Known as the home of many tech giants, San Jose is also a beautiful modern city with a vibrant downtown that has 250 restaurants, nine theaters and many art galleries and museums.
Its beautiful architecture showcases the city’s rich past. Some of the most popular tourist spots are the Winchester Mystery House and the New Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum.

The Mendocino National Forest, only a three-hour drive north of San Francisco, is 913,306 acres of mountains and canyons in the coastal mountain range, luring those who seek solitude and quiet. From 750 feet in the Grindstone Creek Canyon in the foothills of the Sacramento Valley to the 8,092 feet of South Yolla Bolly Mountain, the elevation changes dramatically and with it the flora and wildlife at home there.
Check out the rustic old Pine Mountain Lookout at 4,000 feet, surrounded by dense pine and fir forest, or visit the Red Bluff Recreation Area where you will find a mix of oak forests, grasslands covered with wildflowers, wetlands and the cool, clear Sacramento River, home to 125 species of birds and many wild animals.

Redwood National and State Parks
is a group of four old-growth temperate rainforests located along the coast of northern California: Redwood National Park, Del Norte Coast, Jedediah Smith, and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Parks. Together, they cover 139,000 acres and protect 45 percent of all globally remaining coastal redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) forests. Sequoias are the tallest species of tree on Earth and can live up to 3,000 years.
Besides sequoias, the parks also protect grassland prairie, rivers, streams, animals, and other plants living in this ecosystem, many of them endangered or threatened, as well as 37 miles of pristine unspoiled coastline. Take a hike through the massive redwood groves, visit pristine sandy beaches and quaint little hamlets like Klamath, where the Klamath river spills into the sea. The Klamath overlook offers a fantastic spot to watch passing whales.

Only 12 miles north of San Francisco, the Muir Woods National Monument lies on Mount Tamalpais in a hidden canyon near the Pacific coast and is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It was established in 1908 to protect an old-growth coastal redwood forest. This spectacularly beautiful, shady, and moist park with fog permanently hiding the sky-high treetops is a magical place where one can imagine what the world looked like thousands of years ago.
If you come early in the morning, you will find serenity and solitude among the wide boardwalks and trails surrounded by majestic trees and other rare plants and trees that survive in the permanent shade. However, once the tour busses arrive, the forest looks more like an amusement park than a temple to nature. The tallest tree in the park towers 258 feet and the oldest tree is 1,200 years old.

If you come to Yosemite in August, you might have hard time believing that there are so many waterfalls in the park – they all dry out in the summer because most receive their water from the melting snow. If you come in June, you will find many majestic waterfalls roaring over rocky overhangs into dark deep pools.
The tallest is Yosemite Falls, which flows from November to July and makes quite a spectacle in May. It consists of three falls: Upper Yosemite Fall (the tallest at 1,430 feet), the middle cascades, and Lower Yosemite Fall. The views of the falls are great from anywhere in the Yosemite Valley. There is a shuttle that takes visitors to the base of the falls, or you can hike to the top if you are prepared for a quite challenging climb.
Big Sur beaches are not the wide, golden sand beaches of Southern California. Surrounded by rugged cliffs, difficult to access, often draped in fog, and much cooler than expected, they are still breathtakingly beautiful and worth the effort. The most beautiful is crescent-shaped Pfeiffer Beach, surrounded by purple cliffs that wash down to the beach spilling unique purple sand.
The most scenic part of the beach is a huge rock with a portal through which waves permanently crash with all the might of the ocean. This is not a swimming beach, the surf is too dangerous for swimming, but the purple sand, consisting of manganese garnet washed down from the rocks above, is perfect for strolling. Overnight camping is not allowed and the beach can only be used during the day. You can reach the beach from Hwy 1, about quarter of mile from the Big Sur Ranger Station.

Located on the northeastern side of the Medicine Lake Volcano, where the Sierra-Klamath Cascade meets the Great Basin, the Lava Beds National Monument is where you can imagine what our planet may have looked like in ancient times. This unearthly landscape formed from molten rock is a vast volcanic tablelands dotted with pit craters, cinder and spatter cones, and over 700 caves. The caves are in fact tubes formed when the edges of the flowing lava started to cool.
After hot lava stopped flowing, it cooled and hardened, leaving behind strange tubes of various sizes. While the area looks desolate and barren, it is teeming with life that has adapted to the strange ecosystem. The cracks are filled with sagebrush, western junipers, and mountain mahogany, providing a home for pronghorn antelope, mule deer, rabbits, and many bird species such as bald eagles. About two dozen tubes along Cave Loop Road can be explored and kids love it. Start with the kid-friendly 1,405-foot-long Hopkins Chocolate Cave.

Glacier Point is one of the most popular and most visited spots in Yosemite National Park. This magnificent lookout is located on the south wall of Yosemite Valley, 7,214 feet above Curry Village. It offers a breathtaking view of Yosemite Valley, Yosemite Falls, Vernal Fall, Half Dome, Clouds Rest, and Nevada Fall.
During the summer, the lookout is crammed with tourists. Many tour buses come to Glacier Point via the Glacier Point Road. Tours take about four hours. The area is a heaven for hikers, who can reach Glacier Point using the Four Mile Trail, a steep and difficult trail that climbs 3,200 feet in 4.6 miles. The trail can also be used in the winter when the Glacier Point Road is closed due to snow, but can be very dangerous when covered with ice and snow, so the Park Service usually closes it from December through May.
