4048 Sonoma Hwy, Napa, CA 94559, USA

701 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA 92264, USA
The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs is a converted Howard Johnson that still has a cool 70s vibe with a modern flare. When you stay, you'll be among young hipsters and cool couples waiting to waste the day away poolside. The property also has a yummy...
130 Main St, Chico, CA 95928, USA
If you are in Downtown Chico, you must stop by Upper Crust Bakery. They are known for their beautiful cakes and delicious baked goods. My favorite is their ginger snap cookie which is so moist and flavorful, it basically just melts in your mouth....

351 Pacu Ln #200, Bishop, CA 93514, USA
Walk amongst the oldest living things on the planet. It's eerie, a bit weird looking, and out of the way. Isn't that the way you like it? That's why I went. It's nice at night, as you can tell from the photo. The Patriarch Grove in the Ancient...
Bowling Ball Beach, California 95468, USA
Odd-shaped geologic formations. These rocks are super round, a miracle of nature, the incessant pounding of the Pacific somehow shaping these formations into one of the weirdest and most unique looking formations I've seen on a beach. Bowling Ball...
