California Attractions

California theme park attractions, amusement parks and water parks can be found throughout the beautiful Golden State. Located along the west coast of the United States, it is home to 32 million people and is the third largest state by area.

California is also known for being the closest thing to a perfect place and is one of the most visited places on the planet. The sunny vineyards of Napa, the charming small-towns on the Central Coast and the miles of endless beaches of Southern California make this state a great vacation destination.

Flying into California is no problem with several major airports throughout the state to choose from. You may find it cheaper to fly into one California airport and then drive the short distance to your destination.

Just make sure that the rental car fees don’t eclipse your airfare savings. Most travel agencies also offer greater savings when you book your air travel, rental car, theme park tickets and hotel accommodations all at once.

• Arcata/Eureka
