California Beaches Travel Information Resources

No trip to California Beaches is complete without NOAA.gov weather or weather.com and water quality conditions . California Trip Planner includes the Sunrise and Sunset Calculator, Road Conditions Monitor, Water Quality Observer and Weather Conditions. If you are seeking information about California roads, dot.ca.govv/hq/roadinfo links to California Government Department of Roads.  The most updated information available is posted on their site. Fast facts on California include lots of trivia.


Weather for Los Angeles California & elsewhere is the best source for maps and current weather reports. We've tried other systems and have even had associates cancel travel trips because the reports at weather.com provided dire predictions that were totally wrong!  NOAA, the National Weather Service doesn't have ads, cute faces and little sunshine images. What it has is the best accuracy of any system.
Road Conditions California Government Department of Roads includes current California road conditions updated to reflect problems and closures. You simply enter the number of the road or freeway you plan to travel on in California and it will show you the current status of that thoroughfare.
If you seek water quality at the California Beach Cities, the best tool we've is the Heal the Bay site. Volunteers routinely check water samples and report to the nonprofit organization. Unfortunately, some areas are monitored less and the delay of a week can make guests vulnerable to poor water quality conditions.  Though this is the down side of the link and tool, you can gain a general knowledge of water quality at specific beaches and be aware of repeat or persistent water quality problems you may find at several locations. Check the link Water Quality for more information.

 

Sunset Calculator is a fun tool that's been around for years, making your photo taking more precise.  We use the calculator from time to time.

Press Releases are posted as a courtesy to guests from submissions we've received. Many California Conference and Visitors Bureaus known as CVBs or VCBs (reverse the words Visitor and Conference) send press releases to news publications as a service to inform media about story ideas and ultimately to reach consumers who may visit destinations in California. There are well over 100 of these conference and visitors bureaus in California, many of them operating as separate entities within a city and some operating under the auspices of a chamber of commerce.  Some are funded by members while others receive city grants, transit occupancy tax (TOT), bed taxes or other forms of funding.  The complete list of Conference and Visitors Bureaus are available at California Travel News.

Events in California are happening everywhere, every day. We have compiled a list of things to do in many destinations and hope you'll enjoy seeing the fun parades, festivals, food and wine tastings, fireworks shows and more.
