From the natural wonders of Yosemite's waterfalls in the Sierra Mountains to the desert canyons of Death Valley to the 840 miles of ocean coastline, California is where adventures begin. Raft the Klamath River, canoe in Lake Tahoe or surf in Redondo Beach. Tour the most magical place on earth and see where stars are born in Hollywood. Visit the capital and experience the rich history of old town, local jazz spots and the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento. Head south to the sunniest city in the state and checkout the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, Balboa Park and Coronado Island.
Travel to Sonoma and Napa Valley and see why it's the birthplace of the California wine industry. When you're not strolling through the vineyards, explore the local art galleries, boutiques and farmer's markets. Located outside of San Diego, Temecula Wine Country is famous for its Mediterranean varietals of Syrah, Viognier, and Pinot Gris. With over two dozen wineries and a charming old town, you'll find plenty of reasons to toast to your new life together in Temecula!

Climate & Weather
Much of the state experiences a Mediterranean-like climate with warm summers, mild winters and plenty of sun. While the weather on the coast remains fairly consistent, the weather in higher altitudes follows a four-season cycle. Expect some rain and snow in these mountainous regions. Fog is also common along the coast, especially in the winter months and northern areas. Many consider California a year-round destination.
