5 Reasons I Love My State

I am a native-born Californian. And as a native-born, I am proud of my state. Go here to see why GeoTripper loves CA. I didn’t know that CA has a state song.  Here’s our state song (I Love You, California song lyrics) with more gorgeous photos. Below are some of the reasons I love it here.

  1. Beauty. I am close to the majestic Redwoods, Yosemite, numerouss lakes, and the beautiful city of San Francisco.  I am also 90ish minutes away from both the ocean and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The wild flowers are awesome too.This year I hope to go to Daffodil Hill. Can you believe I’ve never been?!
  2. Disneyland. My mom loved this park. Therefore I have been there with her more times than I can count. It has been too long since I’ve played there. As my kiddos have no desire to go anymore, I plan on going with a friend in early December. I am saving pennies in my pink piggybank for this trip.
  3. Educational opportunities. These range from junior colleges to PhD programs as well as non-credit courses at local schools and classes through learning exchanges. The libraries also have tons of free resources.
  4. Food. We have access to a wide variety of fresh produce, dairy, and meat year round. This abundance of different types of food can be found at the ethnic markets, food co-ops, and Saturday markets. Obviously then we also have access to all types of restaurants with all kinds of delicious food.
  5. The Arts. We have access to great art, theatre, and musicals. I never take advantage of this often enough. Maybe this year. My first goal is to go someplace local, The Crocker Art Museum. Wanna come with me?

This is the 3rd post in the “5 Reasons I Love . . .”  Series. Go here for the original post which explains how this idea came about. Tomorrow’s post is 5 Reasons I Love My Country.
