Things to do in California promise a thrill for all kinds of adventurers, from nature enthusiasts to late-night urban buccaneers. You can see the pastel facades of San Francisco from its rolling hills surrounding the landmark Golden Gate Bridge. Los Angeles and San Diego host some of the best beaches in the country, and you're sure to enjoy them whether you prefer surfing or having a seaside drink at a local cafe. Those looking to head outside the heavily populated areas will be awestruck by the rolling hills of Napa Valley and California's massive redwoods.
