When most people hear that I'm from the great state of California, they think of towering LA sky scrapers, crowded beaches, and cramped SanFran neighborhoods.

But CA is a massive state with so much to do and see off the beaten path.

If you're curious about what else this state has to offer, just take a look at the most scenic places in California!

1. Coast Starlight

Coast Starlight

If you want to take on the entire west coast, you ought to ride the Coast Starlight.

It's one of the most breathtaking train routes in the U.S.

which runs from Seattle to LA.

You'll not only get to see the many spectacular landscapes of California, but also our lush upstairs neighbors, Washington and Oregon.

2. Half Dome

If you want to get out and explore, then your first stop should be Yosemite National Park!

We love nature as much as we love our cities over here, which is why our National Parks with their attractions like Half Dome will take your breath away!

3. Pebble Beach

Pebble Beach

The "lone cypress" is a famous feature on CA landscape.

These lonely trees inhabits an otherwise naked ridge at Pebble Beach, CA.

4. The Mission Inn

The Mission Inn

I admit I'm a bit biased toward this location, since it's right in my backyard!2

But regardless of my personal connection to the Mission Inn, its beauty speaks for itself!

You can't drive fifty miles in California without seeing the mark made by Spanish explorers hundreds of years ago, and the architecture they left us with is incredible!

5. Pacific Coast Highway

Pacific Coast Highway

You can't come to California without driving along PCH!

Even if you don't experience the entire 655 mile route, driving along a small patch of it will give you a taste of how effortlessly gorgeous the California coastline is!
