Concrete Playground
June 19, 2024

From the wild Pacific coast to the jaw-dropping Sierra Nevada Mountains, there's no shortage of memories to made in California.

Nowhere is the ‘American dream’ more visible than in the Golden State, the West Coast, California. There’s nothing but good times and new adventures in every direction, with a new experience around every corner and over every hill. It’s the perfect destination to touch down, grab a hire car, hit the road and see what you can find.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Visit California and assembled a series of guides to steer you with curated selections of natural sights, high-end dining, bucket-list destinations and more. It’s not all about the things you’ve likely heard of — Hollywood, the Golden Gate Bridge — but the lesser-known sights that rival anything else you’ll find on earth.

We’ve also gathered the experiences of our own editors on the ground to tell you about some of the state’s most popular destinations. Read on to start planning your time in California, the ultimate playground.
