America's most populous state is often seen as a west-coast paradise by those who live there—and those who desire to live there. Anchored around the urban centers of Los Angeles in the south and San Francisco in the north, California is a place of idyllic beaches, cutting-edge architecture, spectacular national parks, and Hollywood dazzle. In the pages of California, find out about the Big Sur, the precipitous, beautiful windy drive along Route 1 in the central coast; Yosemite National Park, home to the imposing Half Dome and El Capitan mountains, and offering stunning views from Glacier Point; San José and Silicon Valley, center of the world's tech industry; Santa Monica State Beach, a mecca for sun seekers; Rodeo Drive, the home of luxury-goods stores in Beverly Hills; and Death Valley in the Mojave Desert, one of the hottest, driest places on Earth.
