Top 5 Things To Do in Northern California

By Cam Clark

A common dilemma to run in to when planning a vacation is deciding what places to visit and how to best spend this rare opportunity away from the chaos of the daily routine. If you are looking for the perfect place to beat the heat in the summer months, while still getting to enjoy the sunshine, Northern California is for you. Thinking of visiting NorCal or investing in some land in the area? Below, I’ve listed our top five spots in Northern California to check out.


5. Hearst Castle:

One of the greatest attractions and showpieces for ancient art, the Hearst Castle is known as “La Cuesta Encantada” – which is Spanish for “Enchanted Hill”. This castle was envisioned by William Randolph Hearst and is still a competitive rival for museum collections around the world.

4. Lake Shasta:

Although it’s best known as a very popular retreat to entertain various water sports including fishing, water skiing, boating, and swimming, Lake Shasta is also a peaceful place for those looking for a quiet getaway.

3. Yosemite:

Best known for its waterfalls, Yosemite also offers 1,200 square miles of breathtaking meadows, valleys, and giant sequoias among a vast wilderness area. Take an opportunity to check out this incredible area.

2. NorCal Beaches

Get ready to hit the beach next time you schedule a trip to Northern California. With tons of land for sale down the coastline, a long day of exploring, hiking, and swimming (if you’re brave) could very well be in your future.

1. Redwood National Park

Words can’t describe Redwood National Park, but I’ll do my best. The first that comes to mind is Majestic. Hike and explore the over 133,000 acres of gorgeous, preserved land that is Redwood National Park. Navigate through the light mist and fog to any one of over 200 campsites with your tent or RV. If you are going to find yourself some vacant land in California, then Redwood National Park needs to be on the top of your list for a day trip!
