California, or the “Golden State,” is the third largest state in the United States. Spanning 163,696 square miles and boasting the largest population in the continental U.S., the state is a patchwork of distinct geographies, each with its own culture and climate. With a population of over 40 million and minority groups making up roughly 58% of this number, California offers a wonderfully diverse place to call home. Whether you enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life, stunning coastal drives, visits to the beach, or day trips to a forest filled with the world’s tallest trees, California offer something for everyone.
Often known as the land of “sunshine, surfing, and movie stars,” California is also the birthplace of some pretty cool things, like Apple computers, theme parks (Disneyland), blue jeans, fortune cookies, and the Barbie doll.
What else does the Golden State offer? California’s economy is the largest in the country and ranks fifth in the entire world. Although you can find just about any type of job in California, the major industries include agriculture, tourism, and technology. Many of the world’s largest high-tech companies are headquartered in Silicon Valley, just south of San Francisco, and L.A. is home to a booming service industry, with Hollywood at the center of entertainment production. California’s Central Valley plays host to the largest part of the agricultural industry.
Education also plays an important role in California’s economy, as the two major University systems (the University of California system and the California State University system) contribute more than $60 billion annually to the state. Some of the most notable public and private four-year institutions in California include UCLA, the University of California, Stanford University, and the University of Southern California.
Due to the state’s large size and diverse geography, ranging from the Mojave Desert and Pacific Ocean to redwood trees and the Sierra Nevada mountains, the weather in California varies dramatically. Depending on where you live, the climate can range from polar to subtropical. From the sandy beaches along Southern California’s oceanfront to the rolling hills in Northern California’s wine country, and all the places in between, the natural beauty and range of outdoor activities in the Golden State make California a great place to call home.
