As many of you know theCHIVE is headquartered in Austin, Texas. A lot of us at this company are transplants from all over the country and I think the diversity is what helps us appeal to so many people. Among the editors alone we have people from Indiana, Arizona, Michigan, Texas, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and California. I recently took a trip home to watch my sister get married and it made me realize how much I miss California. I thought I’d share with you some of the great spots my home state has to offer. After all, Summer is almost here and you could use a vacation.
