Time Out California tackles every corner of the ever-popular Golden State, from the urban sprawl of LA to the natural grandeur of Yosemite, from the mist-soaked coastal Highway 1 to the spartan desert of Death Valley, from the sunny coastline of southern California to the snow-topped slopes around Lake Tahoe. With chapters on the best of the state's myriad accommodation options, whether big resorts, sybaritic spas or three-room B&Bs, and unprecedented coverage of local culture, from music venues and theatres to a series of sidebars on the state's most famous and infamous movie locations. Time Out California shrinks this immense state down to a manageable size and points you in the right direction around what is the living, breathing embodiment of the old clich- 'something for everyone'.
Founded in 1968, Time Out has grown from humble beginnings into the leading resource for anyone wanting to know what's happening in the world's greatest cities. Alongside our influential weeklies in London, New York, Chicago and Dubai, we publish more than 20 magazines in cities as varied as Beijing and Beirut; a range of travel books, with City Guides now joined by pocket-sized Shortlist series; and an information-packed website. The company remains proudly independent, still owned by Tony Elliott four decades after he launched Time Out London. Written by local experts, and illustrated with original photography, our books also retain their independence. No business has been featured because it has advertised, and all restaurants and bars are visited and reviewed anonymously.
