California Dreams
Dream Big in the Golden State.

California has a reputation as a haven for people with creative minds, and you can see this in its multifaceted cultural offerings. Arts abound here in four main formats: large-scale, world-class organisations; smaller, quirkier museums, often showcasing the Golden State’s history and its abundant idiosyncratic subcultures (think surfers, Silicon Valley techno-wizards, and Peanuts aficionados); music venues galore; robust artists’ communities, and cultural offerings through California State Parks  and the California Museum 's Hall of Fame and Legacy Trails . Below you'll find a small sampling of California’s cultural bounty.  Want to learn more? Come to California!
