California has been a BIG part of my life. My family and I used to live there for 5 years. We have had some great memories while living there.
California is a state located on the West Coast of the United States. It is the most populous U.S. state, and the third most extensive. The word California originally referred to the entire region composed of the Baja California peninsula of Mexico, the current U.S. states of California, Nevada, and Utah, and parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Wyoming.
