California is one of the most visited states in the USA and features countless exciting sites and attractions. California also has a long history that also influenced the gold industry a few hundred years ago. That’s why California is referred to at “The Golden State” and millions of people were flocking to the state during the famous Gold Rush. In fact, this historic period combined with California’s geographic location has led to waves of mass immigration from all parts of the world. Today, California is the most populous and most ethnically diverse location in the United States.
California is also geographically diverse. The northern part of the state, for example, is home to Sacramento, the capital city of California, as well as San Francisco and wine country. In fact, San Francisco is one of the most famous cities in America due to its unique location, history and architecture. Home of the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco does not only have exciting sites and attractions, but is also rich in history. Being one of the most liberal places in the country, San Francisco was greatly influenced by the hippie movements of the 60s and 70s and has also seen mass immigration from different parts of the world, especially Asia. Chinatown, Japantown and Koreatown count the highest numbers of Asians outside of the continent.
