The Golden State
“I live out there, so don’t go there.” – Notorious B.I.G.
Road Trippin’ through the Valleys and along the Coast
This is hard. I mean if you’ve driven through California on I-5, you know it doesn’t smell pretty, but it’s fast and you can see California’s farmlands. If you take US-101, it is longer but you get to ride along the coastline and possibly detour to Santa Ynez Valley Wine Country and seaside towns like Santa Barbara, Monterey, and Santa Cruz. I say take your time and let the ocean breeze smack you a little bit.
Northern California (NorCal)
San Francisco Bay Area: Hella Dope
That’s all I have to say about that.
Southern California (SoCal)
Los Angeles: A Beautiful Disaster
Well let me start off by saying I was born and raised here for the first 7 years of my life. I have fond memories of food, and family. In SoCal, when you say Los Angeles, that can mean anywhere in Los Angeles county. At least that’s my experience. You’ll need a car, which is a catch-22. Traffic and parking sucks.
San Diego: California’s First State Capital
Aside from beautiful people and beaches, San Diego has a lot of great food. You’ll never go hungry at any hour. Roam around the neighborhoods and you will not be disappointed.
Temecula Valley: SoCal’s Wine Country
Eat and be merry. Before you drink some wine, take a cruise and enjoy the landscapes. An open road and time is the best stress reliever. I mean, aside from red wine.
