HERE is the site I went to to get my info as I could not think off the top of my head of anything I like about California other than the coastal region around San Francisco to Big Sur is exceptionally beautiful.
Sequoia National Park contains the largest living tree. Its trunk is 102 feet in circumference.
There are more than 300,000 tons of grapes grown in California annually.
The redwood is the official state tree. Some of the giant redwoods in Sequoia National Park are more than 2,000 years old.
California has some of the more stupid gun laws in the US. (I added that one )
