California Tourism Month

Request Info

In 2016, the California Legislature passed a bipartisan resolution declaring May California Tourism Month, spotlighting tourism’s role as a key economic driver for the Golden State.

"Nothing represents the California Dream better than surfing – riding the waves and living in harmony with the beautiful beaches and ocean of our Golden State," said the bill's co-author, Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance).

To spread this message to all corners of the state, Visit California has created resources you can use to leverage California Surfing Day at the local level.
