Some of the towns you'll fall in love with include funky Mendocino, with its perch on cliffs overlooking the crashing sea, and tiny Guerneville, along the Russian River.

Features include a driving tour of Los Angeles' funky architecture and walking tours of historic San Francisco, as well as cut-away drawings of Alcatraz and the sea-creature-filled tide pools. Extensive background information provides important cultural and historical context to this multi-faceted state.
