When to Go to California

Most of the state enjoys mild temperatures year-round, so visit California at your leisure. However, keep in mind that the climate varies considerably as you move south to north. Winters can get chilly in the north (although snowfall is an uncommon occurrence, except for in the mountains) and rainfall is considerably more common. In the south, including Los Angeles, temperatures remain in the 70s to 80s year-round.
