History and attractions

California Chinatowns star
This is an introduction to the many "Chinatowns" in California. These areas are important for far more reasons than just restaurants! A visit to any one will immerse the traveler into California's multicultural history.

Californians in Aerospace star
While other states have played important roles in the development of aerospace, much of the intellectual basis of the industry has arisen from the minds of Californians. Here are five important names to recall.

Griffith Park History star
The park isn't named after the director! Here's a short history of how Los Angeles received one of the largest city public recreation areas in the United States.

Hollywood History star
Who is responsible for the rise of the California movie industry? Thomas Edison….. of course! Well, also World War I, immigrants from around the world, and abundant sunshine.

Hugo Reid star
Nicknamed the “Scotch paisano”, Hugo Reid was an early Californian immigrant and one of the first champions of the multi-cultural nature of the state.

Levi Strauss and the California Gold Rush star
Denim was invented in France, but blue jeans are uniquely Californian.

Los Angeles Farmers Market star
A visit to the Los Angeles Farmers Market provides both history and sustenance to the traveler.

The California Mission System star
The backbone of historical sites in the state, the mission system is a treat for the traveler.

The Donner Party star
One of the most famous pioneer tragedies, the Donner Party's sad story is a California legend.

The Legend of the San Nicholas Island Woman star
The story of Juana Maria, the Native American woman who inspired the children's classic Island of the Blue Dolphins, is a fascinating tale - and entirely true.
