California, the Golden State, encompasses a staggering range of locations and landscapes, all offering something different. It’s probably the one place in the world where you can bake in the desert, cool off on the sandy beach or in the leafy forest, take in miles of beautiful rugged coastline, or abandon nature entirely and explore the varied cityscapes at urban metropolises like LA, San Francisco and San Diego. That’s not even to mention the weather, which includes perennial sunshine in the south and green forests in the north. Truly, if you want to visit a state of contrasts, California is the one for you. The only question is – where should you go to find the best views? Cue the very best viewpoints to add to your bucket California list!
This is a small, picture-perfect canyon covered in greenery that’s no less than 325 million years old – The Lost World: Jurassic Park was filmed here! For modern humans, the trail meanders through the canyon to provide fantastic views. If you are lucky you might also see a Pacific giant salamander too. The giant coastal redwoods all along this section of the Pacific coast are well worth seeing for themselves anyway, so it’s a double whammy.
