California, a western U.S. state, stretches from the Mexican border along the Pacific for nearly 900 miles. Its terrain includes cliff-lined beaches, redwood forest, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Central Valley farmland and the Mojave Desert. The city of Los Angeles is the seat of the Hollywood entertainment industry. Hilly San Francisco is known for the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island and cable cars.
Best sightseeing in California:-
1., Yosemite National Park
Yosemite National Park has been a national treasure for over 125 years. It is the natural creation of glaciers grinding over and through granite creating spectacular mountains and valleys in the Sierra Nevada. Scattered throughout the rock are waterfalls, and beautiful meadows amidst the forests. These ancient giant sequoias stand in striking contrast to the vibrantly blue lakes and gray-white rock. The most well-known feature of Yosemite is Half Dome, a massive granite rock face that is sheet on one site and sloped enough for hiking on the other.
Ansel Adams produced the most famous photography of Yosemite beginning in 1927 with the now iconic image of Half Dome. He called the valley “a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.” A gallery of his works can be found in Yosemite Village.

3.,Golden Gate Bridge
Once called “the bridge that couldn’t be built,” today it is one the seven wonders of the modern world. This magnificent span, perhaps San Francisco’s most famous landmark, opened in 1937 after a four-year struggle against relentless winds, fog, rock and treacherous tides.
Crossing the strait of the Golden Gate from San Francisco’s Presidio to the Marin headlands for 1.7 miles is the world-renowned Golden Gate Bridge, easily identified by its International Orange color. Opened in 1937, the bridge was built at a cost of $35 million in principal and $39 million in interest and 11 workers’ lives. The single-suspension span is anchored by twin towers that reach skyward 746 feet, and was once taller than any building in San Francisco. To support the suspended roadway, two cables, each more than 7,000 feet in length and both containing 80,000 miles of wire stretch over the top of the towers and are rooted in concrete anchorages on shore. More than 10 years in planning due to formidable opposition, but only four years in actual construction, the Golden Gate Bridge brought the communities of San Francisco and Marin counties closer together.
5., universalstudio Hollywood
Opened in 1964 to allow the general public a look behind the scenes into the fascinating world of movie making, Universal Studios Hollywood was an immediate hit. After all, many tourists heading to Southern California on vacation were enamored with the idea of catching a glimpse of the glamorous world of the cinema (and maybe even a “movie star” or two!) and Universal allowed them to be a part of all the excitement, if only for an hour or two.
Indeed, Universal Studios is the largest film and television producer in the world – with more than 9,000 employees overseeing the operations – so who would know more about the world of movies than this well-known company? Combine that knowledge of movies and the movie industry with high-action thrill rides and entertaining shows, and you have a theme park that’s ranked among the top 10 in the United States.
Universal Studios is only ten minutes away from the attractions on Hollywood Boulevard. You can easily get there by car (Hollywood Freeway or Highland/Cahuenga), by bus (Metro Local 156), or by using the Metro Red Line train.
6., Alcatraz Island
Alcatraz is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which is one of more than 400 national park units across the country. Plan on spending at least a couple of hours on the island, exploring the island’s particular points of interests. If time permits, consider participate in a Junior Ranger program, attend a ranger-led program, or explore any of the other locations within the Golden Gate.
Here are the basics: The most important thing to know when planning a trip to Alcatraz is that all access to the island is through a private ferry company under contract with the National Park Service, Alcatraz Cruises LLC.
7., Joshua Tree National Park
Joshua Tree National Park is a vast protected area in southern California. It’s characterized by rugged rock formations and stark desert landscapes. Named for the region’s twisted, bristled Joshua trees, the park straddles the cactus-dotted Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert, which is higher and cooler. Keys View looks out over the Coachella Valley. Hiking trails weave through the boulders of Hidden Valley.
8.,Fisherman’s Warf California
Fisherman’s Wharf, on the northern waterfront, is one of the city’s busiest tourist areas. Souvenir shops and stalls selling crab and clam chowder in sourdough bread bowls appear at every turn, as do postcard views of the bay, Golden Gate and Alcatraz. There’s also a colony of sea lions to see and historic ships to tour. At Ghirardelli Square, boutiques and eateries reside in the famed former chocolate factory.
9., Golden Gate Park
You’re emotionally and physically exhausted. Life is good, but the days seem to be getting longer. Your love life is its usual roller coaster. Your family is driving you up the wall. Your computer broke down after that guy accidentally sent you a virus. You missed the bus. Your car keeps flashing arcane-looking symbols at you, none of which seem to say, “You’re doing a great job.”
You need a break from the hassles of day-to-day existence. Cast off your technological shroud—put your computer to sleep, turn off the coffeemaker, TV, and stereo. Put the thermostat up a few degrees—you’re not going to be home for a few hours. Don’t forget to bring your phone, though; you never know when they may call, tweet or email. Get away from it all, meet some new people, and become part of a tight, active community.
Golden Gate Park, one of the world’s largest man-made havens, awaits you in all its splendor. It covers over 1,000 acres of San Francisco’s downtown and ranges more than 50 city blocks. The Golden Gate Park is home to the world-renown California Academy of Sciences, the tranquil Japanese Tea Gardens, and the oldest glass and wood Victorian greenhouse in the western hemisphere, where more than 800 live butterflies flitter around you as you stroll through the home of over 10,000 plants from around the globe.
If you’re hungry, visit the Beach Chalet on the west end of the park for a fantastic ocean view (not to mention great food and micro brewed beer). As the seasons change and winter’s chill creeps in, find yourself a spot close to the huge stone fireplace and enjoy the company of close friends and loved ones while watching the waves crash against the shore, or cast your gaze towards the Murphy Windmill, built in 1905, and at the time the largest windmill of its kind.
If you’re feeling more contemplative, take a quiet walk through the National AIDS Memorial Grove, the first AIDS memorial ever created in the United States. It was built and is maintained by volunteers and can be found at the corner of Bowling Green Drive and Middle Drive East.
Consider this website a portal into the lush, green world of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. The site features a forum that allows you and anyone else to discuss current events, news, activities in the park (which include everything from archery to free swing dancing lessons every Sunday), an event calendar so you won’t miss anything that catches your eye, printable maps for new visitors, bike and running paths, and additional Google maps to help you find exactly what you’re looking for in the Golden Gate Park.
Come down, meet new people, get some sun and exercise, take up a new hobby, read a book, visit a museum, see an opera, hike up Strawberry Hill, or pick a path and walk as far as your heart desires. The Golden Gate Park has it all. This website will help ensure that you don’t miss a thing.
