March< April Events California 2008 > May

 

April in California includes the push toward summer. Springtime events and festivals are on the schedule, but the summer travel season and kids release from school is just weeks away. International travelers start to increase their traffic to California during the month of April and beach hotel availability starts seeing a push.  Some of the events celebrated nationally in April (or adhered in the case of April 15 tax deadline filing day), are April Fool's Day, April 1; Earth Day, April 22; Arbor Day, the last Friday of the month; and the entire month is called National Poetry Month. Unless you celebrate poetry, this is a fact that may be off your radar.

On our calendar, we find April doesn't necessarily bring showers to California. Often one of the dry, sunny months, it brings celebrations of cars, for one. Long Beach Grand Prix is held each April, and takes to the streets of the Los Angeles County city. Another annual event in April is the Auburn Rodeo Weekend. While Auburn, distinguished as part of California's gold country region, is known as a tourist attraction throughout the year for its historic buildings and Old West history, one event looms large in the hearts of the real cowboys that continue to operate ranches in northern California's plains and Sierra foothills. If you can make it to Auburn, the rodeo week includes the best small town community events and activities you find.

 

Finally, April in California is known for Earth Day celebrations. Santa Barbara is where Earth Day began. There are so many celebrations commemorating that event now, we find that the platform is being used to promote all kinds of issues ranging from water resources to sustainable hotels & tourisms, and natural farm practices.
 

While many activities and events herald the new year, one California favorite is Whale Watching. You can park your car at the roadside vista along Highway 1 in Big Sur and watch them, or board a boat to the Channel Island and get views as part of your journey. Better yet, take a whale watching tour to see the magnificent migrating gray creatures in the Pacific Ocean. You normally don't have to travel more than a few miles off coast to watch, depending on their favorite spots.

 

Other events in January that occur annually are localized games, fairs, festivals and sports. Concerts, plays and theatre are also quite popular. January is the perfect time to visit California's museums ranging from a surfing museum to California trains. From The Getty to several presidential libraries, the variety and collections are world class.  Enjoy California in January. It is one of the best times to explore.

 

One thing to consider, like all your travels, please do call first before going. Some museums actually close their doors for the winter in the mountain areas. Even the events get cancelled from time to time and they forget to tell us.
