California, here we come!

Cruise under the Golden Gate Bridge and discover "the city by the bay" from a hotel at Fisherman's Wharf. Learn a lot about the world around us under the "living roof" of the California Academy of Sciences. Go back to the Gold Rush era, then see cutting-edge energy technology for the 21st century.
