A Central Location for California Dreamers

A Central Location for California Dreamers

Have you been California dreaming? A lot of people fall into this trap, so don’t worry about it if you have become a victim. It’s a good kind of victim to be. People visit California for a vacation and fall in love with the attractions and parks and overall lifestyle. From Bakersfield Solar rays to the Santa Monica Beach and Pier, California has it all. Let’s focus on all the fun there is to be had in California.

 

North

If you drive north, you can hit San Francisco and Reno. The former is to the east and the latter is to the west. San Francisco is also a very eco-conscious city, but you’re not visiting San Francisco to look at solar panels. You’re visiting San Francisco for the food, overall laid back atmosphere, walking paths through the city, unique road system, and Golden Gate Park. If you talk to others who have been to San Francisco, it’s unlikely you have received negative feedback. Most people who visit San Francisco rave about it and state that they would like to return.

 

Reno is a whole different ball game. Think of it as a mini Las Vegas. You’re not going to get all the bright lights, hustle and bustle on the streets, and hordes of tourists. You’re going to seem tourists, but more locals. This can be good or bad. It’s good because you get a true vibe for the city. In Las Vegas, the underbelly is well hidden, which is a good thing because that side of the city can be very depressing. In Reno, you see what’s going on right on the surface. You will see a lot of local gamblers that are lost (in life). However, you will also find some local poker players who really know what they’re doing and can make a living at it. Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend sitting down at a poker table here if you’re new to the game. If you want to do that, stick to Las Vegas and hit the Flamingo or Planet Hollywood.

 

What most people don’t know about Reno is that it has a lot of history. You can go that route as well. Additionally, it’s only 22 miles from Lake Tahoe. If you’re going to hit Reno, then you should definitely drive they extra 22 miles to take in one of the most beautiful locations in the country.

 

West

If you go west from Bakersfield, you’re going to find the Sequoia National Forest, Death Valley National Park, and Las Vegas. These are three completely different experiences. The Sequoia National Forest will offer natural beauty with 38 distinctive groves, the Giant Sequoia National Monument, glacier-carved landscapes, and the Kern River. If you visit Death Valley National Park, you will find sand dunes and badlands. Make sure you bring water. If you visit Las Vegas, you will find a non-stop party mid-strip, bars, clubs, pool parties, crazy people walking the streets, and plenty of casino games and poker tournaments.

 

South

Head south for Los Angeles, where you will most likely want to visit Hollywood. You can learn all about the history of the city and maybe even have an opportunity to take pictures with a few famous actors.

 

Keep going south for San Diego, which is one of the prettiest and attraction-filled cities in the United States, including Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The latter is quite an experience, where animals roam free behind protected barriers. You get to see them in their natural settings, and you might even see gorillas place hay on their heads and stare at you so they can pretend they have hair.

 

If you want to move to California, do it. You can have at least a dozen different types of vacations without having to fly.
