The best time to visit California
California is famous for having enviably mild weather all year round in many of its best destinations. Los Angeles, San Diego, Monterey, and Palm Springs remain warm and sunny even during the winter, making them ideal for a sunshine-filled break while other parts of the US shiver under blankets of snow. Winter is the best time to visit these places, particularly Palm Springs and California's other desert regions.
If you're craving snow and winter sports action, then the Sierra Nevada mountains resorts such as Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Lakes are also amazing winter destinations. They are also beautiful in the spring and fall when the landscape is painted by the bloom of wildflowers or fall leaves.
Food and drink in California
California is full of incredible food, with elements of classic America, Mexican, and international cuisines. There are a few must-try things in California. Cheeseburgers are one of them. There is nothing more iconic than an all-American cheeseburger, and California is particularly well-known for doing great ones. Amazing cheeseburgers can be found across the state, but In N Out Burgers are a long-time favorite among locals. You can find In N Outs across the state.
California's Mexican heritage has left a massive mark on the state's cuisine, and burritos are one of the dishes you absolutely must try while in the region. California burritos are wheat tortillas wrapped around a variety of fillings (for a uniquely Californian twist, try fish burritos with seafood fresh from the Pacific). San Diego is particularly known for fabulous burritos.
You cannot talk about food and drink in California without mentioning the world-famous Napa Valley wine region. Located in the north of the state, it is a haven for wine lovers, producing some of the finest wine in the world, and with many vineyards that you can visit, explore, sample, and purchase their amazing produce.
