"California - A Separate Country" California by SLLiew

California Travel Guide: 48,358 reviews and 118,161 photos

Led by a famous movie actor Governor Arnold S, California is truly a unique American state that can be a country by itself.

Whether you are into wine tasting or skiing or whale watching, California is trendy, outrageous and never boring.

With cities like San Francisco and LA, with deserts like Mohave and Death Valley and parks like Yosemite and a coastline facing the Pacific Ocean, it is truly a tourist paradise.

    This is a region I'd love to visit, but awfully I hate driving, so I need to wait for a driving mate before going.

    Great tips! Many years ago I drove down Route 1 with friends. We didn't camp, but slept in the car, as there were four of us it was very uncomfortable.
