California Attractions – Big Guide to the USA


While touring the state of California, look for activities and attractions along the route.  The activities and attractions listed here are in alphabetical order by city first, region. then activity.   As you travel through or near a city, easily find something fun to do.

We have included the address, phone number, and links to the website of the attraction, to make getting there even easier for you.

It’s a good idea to call each place before you drive there to make sure they are open as some places are open seasonally, and to make sure the business hasn’t relocated.

This list changes often, so check back for even more great adventures.
