What is the weather like in California?

The Weather in California

Due to its size, California has a wide range of climates. Although most areas are known for their warm and sunny days, climates can be subarctic or subtropical depending on where you are.

It tends to be cooler in coastal cities, such as San Francisco and San Diego, while summers are hotter and winters colder further inland.

The North sees more rain, and places like Sacramento are wet during winter but hot and dry in summer. An alpine climate in mountain ranges like the Sierra Nevada see snow in winter but mild summers.

What are the top sights in California?

Explore California's Natural Wonders

Did you know that California has more national parks, historical sites, and monuments than any other state in the US?

The Yosemite National Park is known for its awe-inspiring, plunging waterfalls. Named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984, it has huge granite cliffs, dramatic valleys, and unforgettable nature. All on a gigantic space of 1,100 square miles! It’s no wonder that over 4 million visitors flock here each year. Meanwhile, the Joshua Tree National Park enthralls with its freaky-yet-cool-looking trees that dot the land. Catch glorious sunsets over the grand desert rock formations.

Wine lovers can savor the experience of the Napa and Sonoma wine countries, with their more than 600 wineries. Besides a world-class culinary scene, Napa is known for its meticulously cultivated grapes, which produce wines that rival French produce. Enjoy tasting the wines while feasting your eyes on rolling hills, beautiful plains, and endless vineyards. The agricultural diversity of the fertile land remains one of Sonoma’s greatest prides—and rightfully so. Enjoy it all from the comfort of your California vacation house.

What are the best places to discover the arts and culture of California?

California’s Art and Culture

There is a wide acceptance of diversity in California and a love of innovative ideas. This is, after all, the birthplace of the 60s hippie movement, home to Hollywood, as well as some of the greatest artists in the world. So if art is what you're looking for, base yourself in Southern California where you'll find all sorts of wonderful outdoor art.

Located in the middle of the desert, Salvation Mountain is an art oasis by local resident Leonard Knight. Made entirely of adobe, straw, clay, and half a million gallons of paint, its combines religious scriptures with colorful flowers, trees, the sun, and birds.

Or check out the Integratron, a dome built in the 50s by George Van Tassel, a self-proclaimed UFO abductee who claims that the planet Venus's inhabitants gave him the instructions to build the structure. Supposedly capable of rejuvenation due to its magnetic fields, it proves that nothing is too eccentric for California.
