California is much more than just the glitz, glamor, and allure of Hollywood. Although the state is the third largest state in the country, it is the most populated. It is also the largest provider of the gross domestic product of the United States of America. In fact, California’s GDP is larger than the countries of Australia, India, and Russia. With large metropolitan areas such as San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles, there is more than enough to choose from in the world of business, tourism, and domesticity. The state is also a front-runner in developing and utilizing renewable energy. California offers a landscape as diverse as its culture and people. From the redwood forests, to Death Valley, or to Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the landscape provides the perfect destination for just about any lover of nature or casual weekender. The chance for opportunity in California is about as large as the state itself.
