The Historical Side of Northern California

by Guest Author 26 June 2017 08:47

Every state has their fair share of fun facts and historical tidbits, however Northern California is filled with much more than just conversational quips. Whether you have grown up in California or just plan on visiting, here you will find plenty of rich history that can make the experience one you will never forget. While California is the home of many famous locations such as Rodeo Drive and Hollywood, there are also some less well-known stops that bear deeper roots to the mystery of the state as well!

Top 3 Places to Visit that You Won't Find on a Tourist Map

Just outside the infamous Yosemite National Park, almost in the center between Lake Tahoe, lies Alpine County. Although you will not find many tourist locations here, as it is California's least populous county, what you will find is the heart of true Californians. Located along Route 89, Alpine is one of the only counties in California that does not have incorporated cities, yet you can rest assured that you will find serenity in the crisp air and calming landscapes of the true terrain of California. In fact, the area is responsible for some of the most famous landscape photography to date.

Pacific Park is also a highly spoken of location amongst tourists and natives. Located on the Santa Monica Pier, it is an amusement park that has combined all of the historical parks that were once lining the Pacific Coast. Why should old favorites die when they can be recreated in one central location for future generations o enjoy? Although you won't find cutting edge roller coasters or virtual reality rides, you will get to experience a walk through history with exhibits such as a vintage merry-go-round that was hand-crafted in 1910 as it appeared in the movie classic, "The Sting."

Enjoy the amazing taste and health benefits of avocados? If so, visiting Fallbrook, California is a must-stop on your vacation. Famously known as the Avocado Capital of the World, Fallbrook is located in the San Diego sector of California. A relatively small unincorporated community that is most commonly known for its annual Avocado Festival. Aside from the fame created from the superfood, Fallbrook is also situated just outside of Camp Pendleton and is saturated with honor and history of the U.S. Marine Corps pride.
