Top 5 Reasons To Be Excited About CA

Since announcing my upcoming move to California a few months ago, I've been posting the Top 5 Things to be Excited About California. Incase you've missed any of the previous entries, you can find them here . So without further ado, here is this week's top 5! 
And since I'm headed to California this week for just a visit, you'll notice their geared towards northern California. Enjoy! 

1. The S.F. Giants. This weekend the Giants will be playing the Brewers. We're hoping to catch the Friday night game! Hopefully, the weather will be good and the tickets won't sell out. Fingers crossed! 
2. Alcatraz. aka The Rock! So many movies and television shows have been filmed at this historic location. Once a prison and arsenal, Alcatraz sits vacant but open to the public for touring. We've got our tickets! Because it sells out fast! 
3. The Golden Gate Bridge. One of the most iconic landmarks in the United States and beyond. No trip to San Francisco is complete without seeing the GG Bridge.
4. The State Fair! Currently the state fair is being held in Sacramento. They've got everything from corn dog eating contest, to rides to funnel cake! 
5. The Beach!
I can't wait for Thursday to get here! So... what's some of your favorite things about California?

I sadly don't really have too many recommendations for Sacramento we have the state fair right now which you mentioned. The capitol grounds are pretty, then if you can catch a Rivercats game they are gorgeous awesome ballpark. If your here Friday we have Concerts in the Park downtown.

Oh I'm so jealous! I was in San Fran last year and I didn't get to see Alcatraz! That is still on my bucket list. You will have so much fun.
