Disney, San Diego, San Francisco... it’s not hard to find things to do in California but the beauty of this podcast comes from the small scale and tailored recommendations. Given by real life experts, each segment highlights something off the beaten path that appeals to people from all walks of life. From free events to solo travel to keeping kids occupied, there’s something for everyone to be found through these exciting travel tips.

Learn About California...and A Whole Lot More

I was a huge Soterios fan from his NPR days and was super psyched to learn he was hosting this podcast. I knew I'd learn a lot about California, of course. What I wasn't expecting was all of the other stuff I'd learn--from what those star ratings for hotels actually mean to how to get prepare for night of stargazing. Every episode has plenty of these little gems that keep me coming back for more. Check it out!
