California

Welcome to the Sunshine State of California. California's Mt. Whitney, second highest peak in the U.S. is less than 100 miles from the country's lowest point, Death Valley.

Distinguished by contrasts, California offers arguably the world's finest wine-growing region just minutes away from San Francisco, one of the world's most dynamic metropolitan areas. California languished until the discovery of gold led to the creation of the wealthiest, most diverse state in the country. Today, California is a promised land of opportunity and adventure.
