Location Information

California is a huge state. Realistically it could probably be several states (which has actually been officially proposed) in the past). Not only is it the most populous state with the largest gross domestic product but it’s also the third largest state in the country in square miles. Which means there is a ton of variety in climate, culture, and community. When it comes to climate there’s everything from the foggy forests of northern California, warm sunny coast, arid deserts and snow-capped mountains of Mt Shasta and the Sierra Nevada range. In terms of culture, you’ve got it all. California is not short of historical landmarks, national parks, natural wonders and everything from tiny towns to world cities like Los Angeles.
