The state of California stretches along the Pacific coast for some 900 miles; its attractions – both natural and man made – are as big and diverse as the state itself. We asked a panel of California travel writers to nominate the top attractions on their must-see lists, and for the past four weeks, our readers have been voting daily for their favorites.
The top 10 winners in the category Best California Attraction are as follows:
- Balboa Park - San Diego
- Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
- Yosemite National Park - Yosemite Valley
- Hearst Castle - San Simeon
- Pacific Coast Highway
- Disneyland Resort - Anaheim
- Death Valley National Park
- Sequoia National Park
- Lake Tahoe
- Lassen Volcanic National Park
A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to picked the initial 20 nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. Experts Tom Bricker (TravelCaffeine.com), Skip Descant (The Desert Sun), Joanne DiBona (Scenic Photos), Katie Dillon (La Jolla Mom), Jessica Doll (Hej Doll), Geneva Ives, Josh McNair (CaliforniaThroughMyLens.com), Tom Molanphy, Wendy O'Dea, Jenny Peters and Joe Truskot (The Salinas Californian) were chosen based on their knowledge and experience of travel in California.
Congratulations to all these winning attractions!License the 10Best Readers' Choice Award Logo
