California is a Pacific coast state that covers more than 158,000 square
miles and is the most populous in the USA. Less than 100 miles
apart, Mount Whitney and Death Valley are the highest and lowest points
in the contiguous 48 states. California is a land of contrasts,
from the coastal redwood forests of the north to the densely populated
south coastal region. The Coast Range runs down the western side
of the state, the Sierra Nevada Range runs down the east side, and the
Central Valley is a fertile agricultural area. In north central
California lies the Napa Valley, famed for its wineries.
The capital of California is Sacramento; other leading cities include
Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego.
Sacramento is an agricultural and transportation center which has
experienced much population growth in the last few decades. The
downtown area is somewhat lacking in entertainment facilities, but there
is an attractively restored historic riverfront area. Traffic and
smog are constant, but the Sacramento area also provides a broad range of
recreational opportunities and enjoys close proximity to San Francisco
and Lake Tahoe.
Los Angeles is a huge metropolitan area, extending west from the Pacific
beaches at Santa Monica north into the San Fernando Valley, east toward
San Bernardino, and south to the busy port of Long Beach. The city
is made up of many socioeconomically diverse neighborhood cores, and
congestion is a very real issue. The high cost of living, traffic
jams and smog contrast with some of the best weather in the world and
abundant cultural opportunities and services.
San Francisco is culturally rich, with a strong commercial and financial
core. It is located on a narrow peninsula surrounded on three sides
by the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. The Golden Gate Bridge
is perhaps one of San Francisco's most recognized landmarks. The
famous Fisherman's Wharf, steep winding city roads, and a cable car
system make it interesting and diverse, but San Francisco has the highest
cost of living in the country and there is fierce competition for
San Diego's ocean-moderated climate is hard to beat, and the city
provides many parks and recreational opportunities that can be enjoyed
year round. Seaside towns dot the coast from just south of the city
all the way north to the Camp Pendleton Marine Base. Like many
California cities, much of the culture is influenced by the large
population of Mexican immigrants. High-tech industry fares well in
San Diego, and services and cultural opportunities abound, but population
boom has led to urban sprawl and has driven up the cost of living.
